Today's review is Part One of a three part series. It has been a few weeks since I removed my crochet braids and I am back to styling this thick head of hair again on a weekly basis. With my tapered cut, I prefer to style my hair with gel to create defined coil outs and twist outs. Pam of Koils by Nature sent over a few products for me to try from her collection, including one of her gels. Today I will be reviewing the Soothing Herbal Curl Defining Unscented Gel.

I am totally here for affordable natural hair products! You all know that that's my mantra. My first thoughts when I tried this gel were that I was surprised by the loose consistency of it and how little you needed to use. Although the consistency was new for me, it was nice because it wasn't sticky and thick. I love the fact also that this is unscented so I didn't have to worry about an overpowering smell.
In the two occasions that I used this product, I can say that it definitely defines curls VERY well! My curls were popping immediately as I raked it through each detangled section of my hair. I chose to use this product for a coil out. My curls were beautiful, but I was disappointed by how dry my hair felt after Day 1 of each coil out. Although the curls were gorgeous and didn't look dry, they felt dry/crunchy when you touched my hair.
Since this product has a softer hold, I feel that this product would be ideal for my 3C/4A curls as a wash and go product. That's precisely how I plan to use it next!
Would I Recommend?
Yes. Although it didn't provide what I was personally expecting, I think this product is definitely great for those looking for a natural hair gel. Also, I think it is ideal for someone looking for a gel that actually leaves their hair soft. For twist outs, I prefer a harder hold, but this is a great product for wash and gos and with the approaching warmer weather, it's the perfect time for a wash and go!
Have you heard of Koils by Nature? Would you try this gel?
God bless & stay fabellis,
