Review / Comparison time :D
My order of the organicals DC, and their hair gel just came in.
So I just got my "touchably soft conditioning gel" base gel from ingredients to die for, it's a complete natural hair gel base, that is simply unscented (which I am happy about since if I love the results I can scent it anyway I want) =D
Anyways the gel is like they described, off white, runnyish...I think it kinda look like a very light runny conditioner actually - more than a gel anyways which usually look like solid jello blocks, or not all the way done jello :P lol
Let me first write about how my other two styling products work on my hair.
I get the most compliments when I kinky curly's curling custard, because of the definition. But I also get the most tangling and dryness by three days or so with using it everyday. Also the most crunch and it is easier for me to use too much of the curling custard than my other gel.
But I do love it, it's like that gel that is always there to save the day on days where my hair and I are just not getting along. =D
Kinky Curly curling custard gets a 9/10 for me just from it's consistency alone.
Next is the Shea Moisture Curling Souffle..
I tried this hoping to get a less expensive, and more product, and still natural gel that was hopefully just like the curling custard only less drying and less expensive :D
I got a light holding, non-clumping....basically moisturizing gel. It's moisturizing but it is basically like a light oil with a gel like consistency. It gives really good shine and everything but not enough hold or definition for wash and gos, I'd use it for hair styles like a puff or something like that where I don't want defined curls, but want moisture and shine I guess.
I like it, but it's not all that amazing honestly.
Shea Moisture Curling souffle gets a 6/10 for me.
Now onto the Touchably Soft Conditioning Gel....
So now looking at the name, I can tell why they call it a conditioning gel, because it is very much like a conditioner that has been mixed with some sort of gel I guess haha.
My hair isn't dry yet so I can't give a full review of the results. Just of the application, and how my hair feels.
The gel has amazing slip, I can't say this about the other two gels. It again, goes on like a conditioner - and it feels slippery enough to detangle with. Keep in mind my hair was already styled and had product applied to it this morning - all I did just a few minutes ago was rinse it with water, my hair still will of course have product residue from days of wash and gos now.
I usually test out gel on not-freshly washed hair because it gives me more honest results then freshly washed, DC, and detangled hair XD lol
Anyways back to the gel, I sectioned my hair in for large sections, applied my shea moisture restorative leave in to each section before applying the gel, the gel encourages clumping like the kinky curly gel, and it also "binds" strands together like I say my pomade does for my hair.
My hair feels good now, not sticky, not crunchy, the gel has hold from what I can tell so far. I will post a pic, and a complete review of it when my hair fully dries.
