Finally, A Gel That Works For 4C Hair!

Jonathan Product Hydracurls Styling Gel Cream |

About a month ago, CurlKit sent me their June box, which mostly contained products I’d already heard of – Lottabody’s 5‑in‑1 Miracle Styling Creme (peep my review here), Curls Unleashed, and Ampro Gel, but there was a new product called Hydracurls. Further investigation revealed that Hydracurls is a line of products by Jonathan Product, and the CurlKit contained a 2‑in‑1 Styling Gel Cream. After doing a dry flattwist out with the cream on a whim, I realized it might actually be promising, and decided to do a flat twist and curl on freshly cowashed hair.

To give you some background on why I’m so excited about this product, I’ve NEVER used a gel that I completely liked, because they’re incredibly drying when used without a moisturizer (see my last successful effort with Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Jelly). Because I’m too lazy to layer multiple products on top of each other and risk buildup or flakiness, I had largely given up on gels, resolving myself to puffy, undefined hair during the summer months.

Well that’s interesting.

When I first read the above excerpt I thought: Okay, maybe I’m slow, but who DOESN’T use a gel without layering something underneath it (moisturizer, oil, or both)? Then I read the article and I saw that she’s describing a cream gel. If this really does provide the best of both worlds, then I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.
