What is in it?
- Aloe vera juice to moisturize the hair.
- Sodium PCA, a very powerful humectant that holds several times its weight in water and helps prevent moisture loss.
- Glycerin a powerful humectant that attracts moisture to the hair and helps prevent water loss.
- Bamboo extract contains silica which gives smoothness to the hair, enhance shine and strengthens hair.
- Sea kelp extract has a high content of silicon, vitamins and minerals that help nourish the hair, especially the root.
- Panthenol to increase moisture and add shine to the hair.
Hair Type - This product is good for all hair types especially thick hair with very little or no visible curl definition.
Wash and condition hair, rinsing the conditioner from the hair. For best results, Curl Define™ Curl Enhancing Gelly should be applied to damp hair for the Gelly to penetrate into the hair and to ensure even distribution of the product.
Section hair and apply the Gelly by either raking or smoothing the product through each section from root to tip. For great curl definition and frizz-free curls it's important that you apply a sufficient amount of the Gelly to your hair. You'll know you've applied enough when you feel a nice "slip" to your hair after application.
Allow hair to air dry or use a diffuser to reduce drying time, being careful not to touch your curls.
*Raking occurs when you comb product in your hair with fingers.
*Smoothing is done by pressing firmly on your hair strands as you apply the product.

I have super coily, 3C-4A hair. I've used Eco, Deva, Uncle Funky's all with meh results, and then a stylist, Abena Palmore, used it on my hair. It did such a good job of defining my thick and bushy coils, that I haven't used anything else since. My hair feels moisturized, soft and has a gloss to it. If you have think hair, I recommend it... though I just order the Gelly Max for the crown and temple areas which are a bit more challenging to tame. If you have dense, thick or bushy hair, I recommend these both!
This is an amazing product! It held my curl without frizz occurring! i do have to continue to use it to improve my application step!! But I can not say enough good things about this moisturizing gelly!!
My cousin uses this on her daughter and when I saw the results I wanted to try it. I wanted something to slick my hair down but was healthier than eco styler and I loved it . The gel slicks my hair down without making it rock solid. I wish there were bigger sizes I always get the large but it still doesn’t last too long.
Absolutely love this gel, I've tried many others but nothing compares. I use it as the base and top it with a lighter hold gel for longevity.
This hair products had helped me so much my my curls, it works with any kind of hair i have 3c. And it’s just amazing.
I was struggling to find a good Gel that held my curls for a whole day and this Gelly did more, it held my curls for THREE days!! I touch my curls, and it happened to be windy, and my curls looked gorgeous by the end of the first day. The next day, which I didn't do anything special for night time, other than sleep with my satin pillow case, and my hair was great looking the next day too. Highly recommend!!
My granddaughter swears by this so I bought her some more
I love this Gel. Not heavy and doesn't dry your hair out or make it hard. It helps ur curls stay in place all day, even on humid days.
Consistently get great results when I use this product.
If you have thick,kinky hair, (4c) this product will make your curls POP. My favorite go-to-product that never lets me down!
It gives GREAT CURL DEFINITION DRIES FAST AND LEAVES A WONDERFUL SHINE!!!
This gelly is really enhancing I used it on my flat twist sparingly and the hold is very good. I also used it on my edges and it worked just fine controlling them.
Best products I have ever use, my staple, my wash and gos las at least 3 weeks, no flaking .
This product does so well with defining my curls and lasts all week. Just some mist in the morning and I'm off for the day. I love this product!
After looking for a gel for my wash and go's (4a/4b hair) I think I've found the one! My hair is fine and therefore doesn't like any products that are too heavy, but also needs something with enough weight and hold to define my curls. This gel has the best slip, defines (with shine!) and reactivates easily with water. On the second/third/fourth days, my hair is still softer than it ever has been with a gel, but doesn't frizz up. My hair has never looked this good with just one product.
Best gel ever for my hair and my hair doesn't have to be soaking wet to use which i love no crunch for my wash and go's. Love this gel Thank You.
I had been hearing about product on social media for some time. Finally made a purchase ( twice that I didn’t realize .... late night shopping when should be sleep) But when it finally came. I was super excited to try it and it was amazing. All I wear is a wash n go style. I can’t wait to experiment more but hands down the best and to my finding a little is all you need. Love Love Love !
I have tried dozens of natural hair brands in the past 5 years, and no product works as great as this jelly. My 4C curls are perfectly defined, moisturized, and elongated. Most importantly, there are no flakes at all. This is the only product I've used that truly does not flake. It also makes my hair so soft and touchable. No stickiness or hardness after the product dries. Also, it works as an edge smoother. When I used other styling products for my hair, I always had to use a separate edge smoother. This product is amazing for 4C hair. I pray that it is never discontinued because, my hair has never looked and felt this wonderful.
My hair shiny and totally get 18 days of wash n go,NO FLAKES
This has got to be my new favorite hair gel. I had perfectly defined curls for 7 days. I'm sure my wash and go would have lasted even longer than that had I not washed it. I am definitely impressed with this product and will be re- purchasing in the future!
Finally! I have found a gel that moisturized for days and keeps my curls defined and looking great for days on end. My 3B/3C/4A curls love this gel! No excessive stiffness, pairs well and easy to rinse out.
Holding my hair,and shine over 14 days with the butter underneath
This stuff is the bomb. Incredible hold but not stiff
I have tried hundreds of gels to define my thick 3c/4a curls and this one has topped them all! My favorite was Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker, but this one has done a better job than that! So this is now my #1. Smooth application, super definition and I'm amazed at the hold for 7 days! I could have gone longer, but for now I will still wash weekly. But this gel has surpassed all others in my book! A week after ordering, I immediately ordered another jar. My definite go to, hands down! Thank you Earthtones Naturals and Curly Dew!
When you grow up hearing you have bad hair you resort to relaxers, braids, weaves, anything to HIDE IT...then you find something that is truly like magic and you go from hiding to proudly displaying. My 4c hair loves this Gelly!
I was nearing the end of my natural hair journey because my hair was dry, brittle, frizzy with single strand knots and wash day tangles galore. It's not point being natural if you can't enjoy your hair! Enter the Curl Enhancing Gelly...omg! I'm in love with my hair after two weeks of use! I am able to get 7 day wash and gos where 2 days before was impossible. It's highly moisturized, defined and there are no tangles and knots! I had an experience last year where I had to cut off about 4 inches of hair because of a stylist not being to detangle my hair and ripped through it causing major damage. Had I have had this...that would have never happened. My take away is that I can TRULY appreciate what this has done for my hair and I am a permanent fan now!
As soon as I put this on my curls are popping and not hard. I love it.
Talk about fast shipping. I ordered this butter on the 22nd of June, received it on the 26th. The jelly paired very well with the butter. Soft , bouncy curls. My hair is currently on a day 5 washngo. I only ordered the 4oz to try. Will be purchasing the largest size soon.
So impressed with this product, ordered the large jar.
This product is wonderful for enhancing your curl pattern. It also helps my curls clump and adds moisture!
Wow! I was skeptical about this product because I had not found a gel that gave me the definition and hold that was as good as my staple gel. I was pleasantly surprised that this gel defined my type 4 curls so easily and provided the hold I needed for the week. No touch-ups nor spritzing was needed. My curls were soft and had so much movement. I quickly ordered more and have had consistent results for the past two wash days. For me, a gel is good if it does the following: 1) Provides good hold for the week (no minor touch-up required); 2) Has good slip; 3) Clumps my curls, but allows them to separate for a "natural" look and 4) Adds shine and softness without feeling greasy. You will have a hard time keeping your hands out of your hair. Last, but not least, I noticed that using this gel reduced the styling time for my dense hair. It is worth every penny! This gel made me enjoy styling my hair on wash day, and fall in love with my curls and coils again.
This Gel is awesome leaves your twist so nice and soft . Not crunchy .
THIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST gelly i have ever used FOR MY NATURAL HAIR it is curl defining MAGIC and it last my hair stayed for 7 days ( i wear a bonnet to bed i remove and finger comb my hair and maybe spritz lightly some water and go ) ,and i have true 4 c hair . and it doesn't make your hair very hard and crunchy but it is pliable firm i have gotten so many complements this is my go to product .
The gel left my curls defined and my hair was extremely soft. I received a lot of compliments about the curls and how silky and soft my hair was.Most gels I've used left my hair feeling stiff, but gel leaves my hair soft and silky. LOVE IT!!
Love the shine and curl it gives my hair but you must be extra careful with the amount or it'll leave little "crumbs" along your hairline. Works best mixed with the curl creme.
Amazing slip and amazing definition. Best gel ever for wash and gos. I can now get several days put of my wash and go.
After going to the Soulard Market in St. Louis, I was drawn, as usual, to the natural hair selections. This led me to the Curly Dew station and I had a conversation about the products with the ladies there. After discussing my hair (my hair was turbaned so, she couldn't just view it), a few suggestions were made and I purchased two products including this one. I just have to say...THIS HAS CHANGED MY HAIR SO MUCH! I absolutely loved putting it in as the slip was amazing, I didn't need alot and my curls.were.popping.something.FIERCE! My hair had never ever looked as good... and it was so soft! I was showing my sister and I called my mom AND bf lol! I wish I could buy it by the Liter (seriously) but i only used about two half dollar amounts in my entire head for a wash and go, so...that would last me more than a year if I did it everyday. I only gave 4 stars because it was a tad sticky, especially for first day hair and I would be worried in the summer but by day two...i didn't even need to spritz with water to refresh like I normally would! AND it's curly girl approved! WINNING! I'm buying 2 at a time for sure...
Have tried many other products but keep coming back to this one.
Best product for two strand and flat twist, you will not be disappointed! This product with a mixture of the curl quench hair butter is pure happiness! I was extremely impressed with the results, even after three days of no product or water my hair still looks great. I love what this product is dewin!!!! #curlygalflow #earthtonesnaturals
It's great at defining your curls and it worked wonders on my edges but I didn't like the sticky feeling the product left on my hair....
This is "my thing", Curl Enhancing Gelly! I love this stuff! I twist my hair and after smoothing it with the hair butter, I apply a small amount of the gelly to set my twists. Later I take them down and style "my do" with my fingers. Maintenance of this style does not require much jelly, (I may apply a 2nd light application to touch it up, within the week). Again, as I wrote in one of my other reviews, I use the Curl Styling Cream on the tips of my twists to smooth out the frizz.
