Ok guys. You can probably tell from the pictures that my hair looked nothing like it did when it was wet once it actually finished drying. I was so disappointed! When my hair was still wet my curls were nice and clumped, my hair felt moisturized, and it just looked good. But once it dried, it didn't even look or feel like I had any gel in my hair at all.
All of my hair was insanely soft, but there was a slight difference between the two sides. The Curl Enhancing Smoothie side wasn't quite as soft as the Curls Creme Brulee side. Both sides felt like they were very moisturized, but I didn't like the way my hair looked because there was barely any definition. I feel like my hair should have some kind of hold and definition if I'm using a gel to style it, no matter what gel it is. If I want no hold at all, I'll just use conditioner. And even then, my curls won't separate and make it look like I decided to wear a half-assed afro.
Honestly, I think the Goddess Curls Gel didn't work for me in the beginning because it's just not a good gel. I have tried it enough times that I feel like I can make this assertion with confidence. The only good thing about it is that it is formulated with organic ingredients, but I don't think that matters if those organic ingredients can't come together to do the job they were designed to do. I do not recommend this gel, and I'll probably be swapping it on NaturallyCurly.com.
If any of you try it and have a different experience, let me know in the comments. Later, loves. :)
