DO YOU USE GEL TO DEFINE YOUR CURLS?

How to use gel on natural hair for optimal bounce and health?

If you’re gifted with naturally curly, coily or kinky hair, you likely already know the basics about caring for your curls and coils (no sulfates, air dry or diffuser only, style with a curl cream, etc). But there’s one curly hair hero product that’s often overlooked: hair gel for curls.

Applying hair gel for curls is typically the last step in styling curly hair.

HOW TO ISE IT EFFECTIVELY:

● Shampoo and condition your hair first (always start with clean scalp and hair)
● While hair is still wet, apply the gel in sections, starting from the nape area using the “praying method” ensuing the gel is in each hair strand from root to tip.
● Use your fingers to take through the hair or use a curling brush to define your curls
● Scrunch the curls
● Dry under a hooded dryer for lengthy, defined and frizz free curls or use a diffusing dryer.

The best curl gels are packed with nourishing ingredients that promote hair health and shield against damage from heat and humidity.

•They are primarily used for styling
•Provide maximum hold
•Not as moisturizing as creams, but often still contain hydrating ingredients
•Defines curls while boosting bounce, body, and shine
•Eliminates frizz and flyaways for a sleek and smooth finish.

Even the very best gel for curly hair will leave your strands feeling “crunchy”. This is called “cast” and it is completely intentional! Cast is a protective, hardened layer of gel that wraps around your curls to create voluminous clumps. Curl defining gels will always leave a cast on your hair once it dries, as this helps your curls hold their shape while maintaining a soft and more natural finish.
