My name is Cheney and I'm a product junkie. I am always on the look out for a product that makes my hair style exactly how I want it. Most products let me down and a few, very few, have made the cut. Once I find a product that works for my hair, it becomes a staple in my hair products. And what do you know, Pantene Curl Shaping Gel has made the cut!
I absolutely LOVE this product and what is does for my hair. It takes a special product to tame the thickness that sits on the top of my head. And this gel does the job. According to pantene's website;
"Pantene Curly Hair Series Curl Shaping Gel can be used in wet or damp hair to define curls and protect styles from frizz. The customized styling and shaping gel formula boosts curls for healthy volume that is extra soft and shielded from humidity.
Pantene’s customized styling gel tames frizz and fly-aways, resulting in soft, healthy curls. Advanced, fast-acting polymers help provide moldable support for curly hair’s structure, allowing you to add definition and shape to your style.?
I've used the gel on my hair, both wet and dry and both results have been fabulous. The directions state, "
"Start by dispensing styling gel and spreading in palms, work through hair from roots to tips. Scrunch and twist your curls for relaxed definition when air-drying, or use a diffuser to shape curls when blow-drying. For hair that’s bouncy and healthy, use with Curly Hair Series Dry to Moisturized™ Shampoo and Conditioner." I don't exactly follow these directions. Instead I use the gel to two-strand twist my hair. On wet hair, I shampoo, condition, deep condition, add a leave-in conditioner or coconut oil and then add the gel to a section of hair and then two-strand twist that section. Once my hair is dry, usually the next day, I put coconut oil on my finger tips and take the twist down and then separate each twist into 3 or 4 twist (makes my hair look fuller) On dry hair, I mainly use it to revitalize twist that are few days old. I will grab any sections that look dull and re-twist it with the gel.
Pantene hit it on the head with this gel and it is a must have for those that are looking for a great gel that defines your curls and make them shine. I may just be tempted to try other products by Pantene. Yes, always the product junkie!
