Achieve Your Softest, Most Defined and Non-Crunchy Curls with this Awesome Hair Gel

Every curlista knows the struggle with finding a hair gel that can define your curls without turning it into a dry and crunchy crackling mess.

Over time, the crunching cackling mess can lead to breakage. The main culprit in hair gels, which leads to dry crunchy hair and an itchy scalp is the high alcohol content.

Always avoid gels that contain alcohol no matter your hair type.

Achieve soft, defined, non crunchy curls with this innovative hair gel. A popular favourite among ladies

9 Things to Looks Out For in a Great Hair Gel

  • Great curl definition
  • Alcohol-free
  • Makes curls soft
  • Makes edges sleek
  • Promotes shiny hair
  • Controls frizz after smoothing
  • Medium to strong hold
  • Keeps the curls longer than a few days with daily wetting
  • Doesn’t cause build-up, or at least very minimal build-up

I’ve tried a lot of gels over the years and discovered a few when I started exploring the Max Hydration Method.

However, I like to have three to four alternatives for every product because you never know when a company will up and discontinue your favorite product.

Wetline Extreme Professional Styling Gel

Enter this new gel that’s all the rave now – Wetline Extreme Professional Styling Gel.

This gel has been around for some time but it only came to my attention this year.

The gel is manufactured by Wet-line Industries, a company located in Mexico.

The gel is alcohol-free and protein-free and contains glycerine and panthenol, both humectants, and aloe vera extract for moisture.

Wetline Extreme Professional Styling Gel Ingredients

Water, carbomer, triethanolamine, polyacrylate, acid, glycerin, fragrance, phenylcarbinol, methylchloisthiazolinone, methylisotiazolinone, panthenol, aloe vera extract, tetrasodium EDTA, colorant FD&C violet #2.

The ingredients are not completely natural but used in moderation, it should be fine. Excessive use of hair gel can be counterproductive.

If you live in a dry or humid environment, the glycerin and panthenol will be an issue so do layer your hair with a great oil after applying the gel.

The women over at LHCF are loving this gel too. The key to making this gel work well for you is layering over an excellent hair oil.

Hair Gel Oil Layering Recommendations

I recommend castor oil, grapeseed oil, argan oil, and sweet almond oil for layering over hair gels.

You can also use serums to achieve the same thing. I’ve heard good things about Aveda’s Be Curly Line and TIGI
