Review: Beautiful Curls Curl Defining Gel

I used to deny my hair's natural texture, blow drying it into submission. Since I've embraced my natural waves, I've been on the lookout for products catered to my hair. Brands such as Beautiful Curls offer a range of products for wavy to kinky hair, so I put their Curl Defining Gel to the test.

  • Pleasant coconut/fruit smell
  • Moisturizing
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Helped hold texture in my hair
  • Made with fair trade shea butter
  • Gentle ingredients
  • Need to apply sparingly
This Curl Defining Gel has a texture between a lotion and a gel. If you have long and thick hair like me, you'll want to be careful not to layer this with a heavier product, such as a leave-in conditioner. It seemed to work best when applied lightly, which added some texture to my hair. I would say this was more of a "wavy" gel than a "curly" gel, as I didn't get a lot of spring to my waves, but I did see some shape when I used it. I was glad to see this product rated a low 2 on EWG's Skin Deep scale, and uses certified fair trade shea butter. If you're looking for a gentle gel for wavy hair, give this one a try.
