Everyone remembers Tracee from girlfriends because she always wore her curly hair which was an inspiration to many. And when she launched her natural hair business PATTERN, longtime fans of Tracee brand’s and girlfriends (like me) were going to support. And so, I did by purchasing this gel. Also, as a lover of twist outs, I’m always looking for alternatives to making my homemade flaxseed gel.
Never damaging or drying, our flexible Strong Hold Gel provides long-lasting hold without breaking hair or edges. Infused with Sea Moss, Aloe Vera & Chia Seeds to nourish & fortify curls, our healthy-hold gel texture has a glorious, luscious built-in slippage to easily distribute through the hair—ideal for a slick look of your choosing & styles that need extra support.
HOW IT LOOKS:
When I opened it, I wasn’t expecting a clear gel.
It is clear to that of a gel with a max 10 hold.
As well as, it is fairly thick.
It’s not as thick as an eco styler gel but it can get the job done.
if you’re a natural who doesn’t like a gel with a lot of holds – then you can pass on purchasing it.
However, it doesn’t give your hair the crunch feeling or gel cast that is usually broken with your favorite oil.
Your curls are extremely defined and shiny after using it.
HOW I FEEL:
I recommend moisturizing before using the gel.
My hair did not feel dry after using it with and without moisturizing my curls.
