Greetings!

Yes, it’s been forever. Now that we’ve acknowledged that, let’s move on 🙂 If you don’t know, my daily style is pretty much a wash and go. I wear them 99.9% of the time. I haven’t mastered the art of a lasting twist-out yet, so wash and go’s are just easy for me. ANYWAY. I was pretty much re-doing my hair every morning because after sleeping on it, it was of course, a little matted and just not poppin. I’ve tried pineapples and banding, etc. to preserve curls, but my hair was just not having it.

SO. I’ve been on the hunt for a hair gel that holds my hair without a disgusting crunch. I got 2 gels to try out a while ago, and here are my thoughts on the Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker gel and Shea Moisture’s Curling Souffle.

Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker: AWESOME softness and shine! However, the hold was not as long-lasting as I was looking for. Now, the label does say that it provides a softer hold, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. But I love how soft and sleek my hair felt when I used this!

Shea Moisture Curling Souffle: I have to say my hair felt horrible when I used this gel. It felt gunky, rough, and just disgusting. But, it looked AMAZING lol. It was shiny and my curls were POPPIN. I personally hate when my hair feels disgusting, but it looked so good, I dealt with it! My wash and go lasted the FULL week, from Monday to Sunday when it was time to wash it. In the mornings, I just spritzed my hair with a little water, fluffed it out, and that was IT!

Moral of the story: I love BOTH gels for different reasons! If I want a super low maintenance style for the week, I’ll go with the Shea Moisture, but if I need my hair to be soft and touchable, I’ll use the Camille Rose. Have you ever used either gel? How do you like them?

Thanks for reading!
