Description - This is the strong holding version of our best-selling Curl Enhancing Gelly and it provides the strongest hold out of the styling products. This product gives an exceptional hold to curls in high humidity. It creates frizz-free curls and styles that last for days and days. The formula is not sticky or tacky and creates maximum curl clumping on even the hardest to hold curls, creating maximum curl definition.
Use it for wash n' go styling, twist outs, and braids out. It creates extreme clumping of curls to define curls that our regular Gelly may not provide enough hold for. This product provides a strong, touchable hold. Hair has movement and flexibility.
With this product, the use of a leave-in moisturizer or conditioner is recommended as it does create a strong hold. However, in high humidity conditions, a leave-in is not needed.
Directions - Apply to freshly washed and conditioned hair in small sections on either damp or wet hair. If you are using a leave-in product, apply the Gelly after applying your leave-in. Section hair and apply the Gelly, smoothing to distribute it through the section and then - if necessary - shingling the product through the hair to create extremely defined curls.
This Gelly is concentrated. Start with applying a small amount to the section and apply more to increase definition. Let your hair dry and to reduce frizz, avoid touching your hair as it dries.
This Gelly creates a stiff gel cast that softens up naturally over time. You can soften it right away by gently scrunching in a small amount of Curl Quench™ Hair Butter or Curl Quench™ Coconut Moisture Milk into your hair after it dries completely.

I love this gel, by far my favorite gel I’ve ever purchased for my tightly coiled curls. I buy this gel every 1-2 months as I can make my wash and goes last for two weeks with this product. It has great hold and leaves my curls sooo defined! I usually add my leave in and fresh aloe Vera gel to my hair and allow it to dry a little. Then I add this gel on top and my curls are left moisturized and beautifully coiled.
I really like this product. This is going to be my new go-to styler. I was able to wear my hair curly for 5 days. My hair is fine, so that’s a lot of days for me. I like that the hold is firm yet soft. I got a lot of compliments on my hair. I had to wash it out and start over not because my hair got too frizzy but because my fine hair gets tangled at my nape. It also has a nice sweet smell.
This gel is great once you figure out how it works on your hair. I tried applying this on soaking wet hair and dry hair. I've tried a lot of product and then not enough. What works for me is applying to damp hair in small sections... a tiny bit of water and a little bit a product. Use just a little at a time until the section looks as if it has been relaxed. Don't worry will start to form into your curl pattern. Bring your patience because it takes time. I blow dry and I tie my hair down at night. In the morning I take off my scarf and fluff. The style will last up to two weeks even if you fluff it several times a day. I love it and will be purchasing more when I run out. Thanks Erica, Dr. Susan and Earthtone Naturals!
I came back for more of this wonderful product. This gel has brought my wash and go's to a new and improved level. The formula really help to define my tightly coiled, kinky curls and keeps them moisturized for 1+weeks. I love this product, thank you for this creation
Started using this product while I was at home for Christmas. My mom and sister made me try it and I can’t look back! It’s incredible! I love how soft and moisturized it makes my hair! Huge recommend!
AMAZING AS ALWAYS!
I love this product
Before this came out, I was using the Curl Define Curl Enhancing Gelly. I loved it, but wanted to try this Max Gelly to see if I could get more days of defined curls between washes. This Max Gelly does not melt into my hands, like its predecessor did. In fact, it gets white, stringy and clumpy, and clumps get stuck in my hair and on my hands. The hold is a little stronger than the Enhancing Gelly, but I can't get past the clumps/stringy mess that results in wasted product. Ill reach out to the seller to see if it is operational error
After reading several reviews, watching the webinar, and looking at Embrace Natural Beauty’s video review 3 times - I finally purchased this product. I did my first wash and go with this product yesterday and I must say that it is AMAZING! I layered the Define Max over the Curl Quench - on freshly washed hair. The gel is deceptively thick - I thought it was going to be hard to spread on my hair but it wasn’t. Thick consistency, smooth application on hair. The results - shiny, great definition - no frizz, no flaking. Yes! This is definitely a keeper in my staple stash.
Oh my, this is the best gel ever!! Holds my curls with a shine that lasts for over a week with no frizz!! Unheard of from any previous products that I've used. Leaves hear soft and nourished I will definitely be adding this to my must have product list. Also I use a lot less of this gel for results that far exceeded my expectations!!!
Love, love, love this gel. I use it as my base gel for my wash n go. It provides amazing definition, so glad to have found this line!!!
