There are a few different types of gels that can be used for men’s curly hair, but they all generally provide a similar purpose. Gels help to define and shape the curls, as well as provide a hold that can last throughout the day.
Additionally, gels can help to control frizz and keep the hair looking moisturized.
Quench and define your curls with Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil Ultra-Hold Gel This vegan, silicone-free hair gel helps keep frizz at bay and coils hydrated and crunch-free. For frizzy, unruly hair, rich coconut oil, creamy papaya butter, and plumeria extract hair care fusion help hydrate, smooth and defrizz your curls while enhancing softness and body for shiny, bouncy curls, coils or waves.
I bought this product in-store about a month ago and have spent the last two weeks recovering from the severe reaction that stemmed from it. After looking up the ingredients on the package, I realized too late that there are a few key irritants in the product that reacted negatively to my skin.
My symptoms include scalp irritation and tenderness, face sores, and intense swelling around my right eye. I would highly recommend steering clear from this product and brand. I’m sure Ulta has plenty of other safer options that won’t potentially damage your vision.

I can’t remember the last time I used hair gel (maybe the early 2000’s?) Gel was always so sticky and flaky. Fast forward to now. Depending on how my hair is cut, it can get pretty curly at times. So I tried this gel and was pleasantly surprised that there was no sticky feeling, no ‘crackle’, no residue.
It is very lightweight and smooth. Your hands don’t get all ‘sticky’ from using the gel! So happy with the hold and the curl definition. I also use the curl shampoo, conditioner and definer from this line and very happy with those as well.
I REALLY wanted to love this line, especially after purchasing almost the entire line after reading some reviews. My initial response was good, I feels as if all the products in the line worked great for my curly but fine hair…for about 3 weeks.
Then, it just wasn’t the same. I don’t know if I wasn’t using them correctly, or? I just became less impressed with the whole line over-time, and more so annoyed! The best products in the line are the moisture oil and curl defining cream.
This gel did nothing to enhance curl and felt drying.
Review for full curl line with gel review at end. I have very fine hair that is like wavy where it’s long and 3A curly where it’s short. My hair isn’t thin just fine. My best routine involves leave in and a whipped rich creamy mousse with good hold, wanted to try this tho.
I did their silicone detox shampoo first to start fresh. I combed the cream into pretty wet hair as it instructs, not totally dripping but not damp. Then I glazed and scrunched with the gel packet which is not nearly enough to actually get a feel for this line.
My hair looked good at that point and I diffused it as per usual and it’s clean, soft and shiny and healthy looking but I give 3 stars for definition and hold. It’s been like 2 hrs and it’s frizzy already.
I think I need to try again and really rake the gel in and use more, but the packet doesn’t have enough left. The gel is very slick and smooth I might like it if I can get it to give hold. No crunch with the approx 5ml I used.
This gel gives you muscle to tame stubborn hair. With an alcohol-free formula that has a higher viscosity than other styling gels, Mode establishes perfectly-tamed hair that appears thick and lush. Ideal for medium to thick hair.
Styling Run a small amount of product through hair and style as desired. Restyle or revitalize through the day by adding a small amount of water to hair once product has dried, style as desired, then let dry again.

It’s strange to think that at one point in the company’s near 150 year history, Morgan’s Strong Hold Gel was once the newest approach to men’s hair styling. Times change and gels are now a renaissance product, making a return after years of matte waxes reigning supreme.
Long lasting like any of those aforementioned waxes, this gel possesses an incredible hold capable of producing spiky styles with ease. Not sparing on shine, it’s a truly healthy option with its beneficial qualities being plain for all to see.
Morgan’s Strong Hold Gel makes the most of a weightless formula without grease that both brushes and washes out with the utmost ease. Using the conditioning powers of Linalool, the gel sets itself apart due to its healthy natured shine.
Once created the firm hold ensures no environmental influences will shift your style, for peace of mind throughout the day. Work a small amount of Morgan’s Strong Hold into your fingers and spread evenly through the hair.
Overall I am happy with the purchase. It is very soft to touch but it works. It has a consistency of a coconut butter standing on a kitchen counter top. The only thing I didn’t like is the coconut scent.
I bought this to try as an alternative to my normal hair clay, Baxter of California’s Clay Pomade. While the Baxter clay is more malleable and gives you more control, the Morgan’s is still easy to use, if a bit tackier in the hands.
Goes through the hair fairly easily, has great hold and definition, and a fantastic, masculine scent. While I can’t say I prefer this to Baxter’s, I would consider this a cut above say Dapper Dan or many of the other clay pomades out there.
A modern, cream gel that moisturizes with intense hold. Sets quickly to a lacquer finish for architectural styles and updos without flaking. Maintains softness and pliability when worked through or blown out.
Controls curls and frizz with superior humidity resistance. Formulated without parabens or sodium chloride. Color and keratin treatment safe. UV protection for hair.
I found this not to my liking. A duo set was recommended to me by a sales girl in Nordstrom’s. The other product was a leave in spray and was like water compared to other leavin’s that make your hair tangle free.
The Hard Gel was no better. It was a very sticky consistancy and definitely for another hair type then my kinky-curly hair. I do however believe that it would be sufficient for fine or medium thickness, punk, spike up do’s!.
It’s taken me over a decade to find a good hair gel. Many have hold, but they damage the hair. This is the only one I know that actually conditions and softens the hair. My hair is softer by the end of the day and the hold is still strong.
Curly Hair Team Tested and Approved. Stop using multiple hair products, you’ve found the perfect product. This curly hair cream gel was specially designed to be lightweight, moisturizing and have great ultra defining hold for your curls.

Carefully designed by a team of curly hair testers with numerous ethnicities, curls and ages. Proven to work well for long to short curls, wavy hair to tight curls, and men and women. At last the perfect curly hair product! Allow your hair to curl up and shine easily with this product.
As a curly girl, I feel like I am on a perpetual search for the holy grail styling product. I am a product junkie, trying everything, and never truly satisfied. These products (both the gel and the cream) seem to have made the cut.
They both provide good slip/coverage and reduce frizz, creating defined curls. My hair is soft and the curls seem to last. I have not yet decided which I prefer; the cream is thicker and might provide heavier/more curl control (maybe better for thicker curls?).
The gel cream also does the trick, but is more viscose, lighter and slipperier. I still have some testing to do, maybe even using both. They definitely make my top 5!.
Just. Wow! I spent my whole life not knowing my Curly Girl hair needed any attention at all. And having young kids. I just gave up on my hair. Didn’t have time to care. They are older now, and. I learned about my hair.
I bought this system. and it is expensive, and never regretted it! My hair has never been so Soft, so Hydrated. thats an actual thing. and so Awesome! This system has really helped me understand hair isnt just a natural winter hat, or a wind sock at the beach.
Hair has needs, especially Curly Hair. Royal Locks has been my gift to myself. Even my husband said he didn’t know how curly and beautiful my hair was. I Love This Stuff!!!.
I’ve tried countless mousse and serums for curly hair over the years. They either way your hair flat or leave it looking and feeling very crispy! Royal locks makes my hair soft and shiny and looking like my curls are on steroids! This product defines your curls and leaves them soft and bouncy! Definitely going to order more!.

Background: I use a lot of products for my hair to style and I’ve tried different ones throughout but have always stuck with the same brand. I have medium length hair on too and style it in a pompadour like hair style.
Application: I apply when wet, lets me hair dry it afterwards to get my hair to go the way I want while also not leaving it feel super gel-like hard. When I first went to apply this product on my hands, it honestly felt like I rubbed it on my hands and it disappeared.
Be assured! It is still there! Have your hands a little bit damp for it to work great. I tried it with dry hair once but it was much harder to apply. Hold: It was great, I’ve been using it much more than my previous product and I see myself keeping up with it after I’m finished with the sample I was given.
It has a very easy flow and enough hold for it to be more natural. Overall: I think the product is great! I definitely recommend to others over other products. The smell isn’t overwhelming like some others.
When you want to look like a greaser, but less greasy and smell better This is way better than your grandpa’s morning application of left over bacon grease to get that flexible, but sophisticated look.
I was actually really surprised by how much I ended up liking this product. I typically don’t use pomades and lean a little more toward matte pastes that provide a maximum or medium hold. Spiffy pomade feels like a mix between a paste and a pomade.
Back in the day I used to use this pomade called Murphy’s that had a handsome gentleman sporting an afro on the lid. Murphy’s felt like hard petroleum jelly and left my hair feeling slick, greasy, and would drip into my eyes as it merged with my sweat to become stinging drops of perfume lard.
Spiffy pomade has been an entirely different experience. It doesn’t feel greasy in my hair, it keeps my hair in place, doesn’t seem too affected by sweat, is flexible and can be reshaped throughout the day, and smells amazing.
Unlike most pomades this product does not produce a shiny of slicked back look. It has a dry semi-matte finish, so if you want the slick greaser look then you might need to look elsewhere. For me this is a great solution if I want something with a softer hold.
The only thing I would like to see some improvements on is the ingredients used in this product. Old Spice is not natural by any means, so it has multiple synthetic ingredients and a couple of parabens.
Overall, I definitely would recommend this product for anyone looking for a flexible semi-matte hold. In full disclosure, I received this product complimentary for testing purposes, but the opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
This is the best gel that I have found or used. If you want a spiked up look just apply the gel and style. If you want more of a natural look you can run your hands through your hair after the gel dries.
This gel doesn’t flake which is great! I also LOVE the smell of this gel!!!! If you buy the largest bottle you get the best price (at least on Amazon). The hold on this gel is decent not amazing but it works.
Previous to ordering the 33 oz bottle, I ordered the smallest bottle which wasn’t completely filled up, that disappointed me (sort of a rip off). But when I opened up the 33 oz bottle I was pleasantly surprised because the bottle was filled up completely!.
I have been a happy customer of American Crew Gel for 2+ years. I have tried all different kinds of hair gels, in different price ranges, this is the one I keep going back to time again. I have thick hair, this works well for me, does not dry or flake.
The smell of the gel is always a plus. My girlfriend loves it. I’ve used it with short hair and long hair. It keeps your hair looking healthy, and it can be used to spike or hold for a pomp. Very versatile.
Kind of runny though, but it dries pretty fast. There’s a bit of shine but it’s just right.

I’m pretty basic and just like a straight Bob style. I just put this on my tips before I dry my hair. Seems to keep my hair curled under. Isn’t sticky if used sparingly. I think it’s a great deal if you aren’t doing a big style! It’s cheap! Says it’s “Alcohol Free” too.
The dark blue LA Looks gel is used by many of us curly girls. It just works for some of us and our crazy curls! A couple of the things that make it great are that it’s easily obtainable and its price point.
Most stores carry the LA Looks brand. Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, HEB, Family Dollar and Dollar General just to name a few. The price point is also super reasonable. I’m pretty sure it’s $5 or less and that is a bargain! This gel is a staple product for me!.
I love this gel! I have tried several different hair gels since starting my curly girl journey and so far this is my favorite. The gel provides great definition and curls that will last for several days.
You may get a little bit of crunchy texture if you apply heavily but don’t sweat it. You can scrunch it right out for soft, defined curls.

Separate wet hair into 4-5 sections. Spread a dime to nickel sized amount of Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer Styling Gel through your hands, then apply evenly to each hair section. Style as usual.
I absolutely love this product. I’ve been looking for a good medium hold gel for many years and recently got this at a salon after a big hair cut. It is crunchy when it dries, but if i fluff it up it keeps it’s hold but makes it nice and soft.
It smells phenomenal and makes my hair look amazing. I have very curly 3B hair, and this stuff works wonders.

My son has wild hair to say the least. He’s at that age where he starts to style it before school. He got a hold of this gel, and won’t turn back. He loves how easy it is to apply. It’s not sticky. It doesn’t leave a mess.
Overall it’s a good, quality, awesome gel. It lasts all day. It even lasts through his gym class. Great stuff!.

The gel’s superior hold is lasting , without flakiness, and the smell alone is AMAZING!.
I have been using styling gels for a long time. I came across this product at my local drug store so I decided to give it a try. I liked the way it smelled like the ocean. I needed something that would hold my hair in place because mine is thin in places.
I love the way it made my hair look fuller and really neat and in place, It looks good and does the job. I am really happy with this product!.
