Product Review: Smooth Naturals Hair Perfection

Y’all know I love to Wash n Go. And all hair gels are not created equal. As for me and my hair, we like mucilage gels. Almost all of these snot-like gels with bases of aloe, flax seeds, or botanically infused nettle and marshmallow root yield awesome results.  However once you find a product your hair likes the key is knowing how to apply it. Check out My Wash n Go Routine for how I get my curls popping. I have not changed this method in years because it works. Now on to the review.

Smooth Naturals is product line from beauty blogger J Cokes, aka Coily Head Chick, in fact the products were first called Coily Head Chick and the line was just a leave in and a hair gel if I remember correctly. It has since blossomed into Smooth Naturals, which is a complete hair, body and skin care brand including a mens line.  I loved the idea of a blogger entering the product domain, as a blogger myself we know what we like and what the people want and I am so proud of her for going after it!

5 Things I Like About This Product

  1. Scent. Honey Almond is just such a sweet pleasant smell. It is not overpowering and it lends itself to blend well with other products.
  2. Price point. $1.37 per ounce is a fair price point for a curl definer I really don’t like to pay more than $1.50 per ounce and this leaves some wiggle room without a sale.
  3. Formula. Yes y’all you know I love a mucilage gel, it is the only stuff that does my curls right.  This product has great botanicals of horsetail, nettle and marshmallow root with aloe and some good oils. Oh and it’s protein free.
  4. It gets along. It is really important to me that my styler play well with a variety of leave-ins because I change my leave-in often. This product works best with creamier leave-ins.
  5. It stores well. The product says it should be used within 6-9 months but I know that I forgot about a bottle in the back of my closet that was a year old and well it still worked. No bacteria or weird smell.

    Smooth Naturals Hair Perfection Gel over Soulatanicals Mango Dip as a leave-in. Day one thru day 4. Each day I refreshed my hair with a bit of water and did not add any additional product.

I would absolutely repeat this purchase I still have another jar up in the closet.  The gel is a little thinner than I like however it applies easy and it pumps out well, never has the pump gotten stuck or backed up. And it pumps all the way to the bottom of the jar.  I can only get up to three day hair with this product as seen in the picture above. I used to seek out 5 and 7 day hair gels and while they are still the business, I wash my hair at least twice a week so long lasting gels are not a requirement.  This gel refreshes easily from day to day which I also like and it doesn’t create a ridiculous gel cast.  If you have ever used aloe or flax seed gel and liked it but wish you got more than one day results this is the gel you were looking for.

    • IMO I don’t believe a product can elongate your curls. It can create a gel cast that freezes the hair in place and keeps it from shrinking. But if you look at my pictures day one thru day four the hair does look more elongated toward the beginning as compared to the end.

  1. Wow, you just reminded me that I have some of these products hiding in the back of my massive PJ hoard! I must have bought these a WHILE ago because they have the old Coily Head Chick label *smh*. I have yet to achieve a successful wash and go but I will definitely try these on the strength of your review.

  2. Nice review!!
    I have been eyeing this Brand for quite some time, especially after watching NaturallyCurlyQ raving review. Now after reading this review I most definitely need to purchase some.
    Thank you
