I was sent this product to review by the manufacturer. I am always willing to lend a hand to small business owners, however when I accepted the invitation I did not bother to check out the ingredients of the product I was reviewing. Bad me. I was sent the Blair Care Curly Jelli which I discovered is a glycerin based gel. I don’t like glycerin based gel. Or rather glycerin based gels perform terribly in my hair. So after pouting, bemoaning and evading I finally picked up my lip and tried the product.
The gel was shipped with instructions on how to use and apply. I was very concerned to read that it is not recommended to use a leave-in conditioner or an oil when applying. Say what? M’am you must be new that is not how you do a wash-n-go. But against my better judgement I listened. I cleansed, detangled and conditioned my hair then applied the gel to wet naked hair. It looked good. I went on about my day waiting for the moment of betrayal that has happened so many times before. Will I end up with a shrunken matted fro? Or maybe the frizzy, puff ball? Or what about the Jheri Curl throwback? I was sure one of these looks was going to take over my head. Only it didn’t. My hair looked good all day. I went to sleep that night refreshed my hair in the morning using plain water and it still looked good. All in all I was able to get three day hair from one application. Crazy, I know.
5 Things I Liked About This Product
- No Crunch. My hair was not crunchy or crispy and was soft to the touch.
- Non-greasy. No oily or greasy feel like you would get from curl activator.
- No build-up. My hair did not feel gunky or coated and it rinsed out clean.
- The Price is Right. $13 or 16 ounces? Where else are you going to get a price like that gives good results. Go ahead, I will wait.
- Non-drying even without using a leave-in underneath.
What can I say about this product? It is formulated very well. I did not get amazing curl definition, but I did get good hair and it lasted 3 days. My hair stayed soft, moisturized and is was not too gunky with product. On top of that I did not have to add any additional products, other than water to achieve this look. Talk about a win.
