Girls With Curls | Wonder Curl " Get Set Hair Jelly " | Review

Hey all! Welcome back to our Girls With Curls series. If you've been keeping up then you know that I've been on a quest to find great products for us girls with curly hair! Wonder Curl is a new and innovative hair line that offers products specifically designed for women with natural and curly hair. I recently got the chance to try out Wonder Curl's Get Set Hair Jelly, which is a a gel like formula that smooths, soothes and controls frizz without stiffness. The Get Set Hair Jelly comes in a 2oz, 8oz and 16oz jar. For this review I used the 2oz jar.
Ingredients : Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) juice, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Phenoxyethanol, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Panthenol, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Alcohol denatured, Carbomer, TEA, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Polyquaternium 7, Fragrance 

Since I'm definitely a fan of wash and go's, especially in the summer; I decided to use the Get Set Hair Jelly for a wash and go this past weekend. I washed and conditioned my hair as usual then per the directions I  applied the jelly onto my hair in separated sections. Once my hair was completely covered in product I allowed it to air dry and went about my day. I don't own a diffuser so of course it took a few hours for it to dry naturally. Check out my results below.

 Is it just me, or does my hair look a little wiggy in this pic lol ? 

Glow: It's not crunchy and it doesn't flake! I know we tend to associate most gel based products with leaving your hair dry and crunchy but the Get Set Hair Jelly actually left my hair looking moisturized, it was soft & touchable and it didn't feel weighted down at all.  Another thing I like about this product is that it comes in three different variations of sizes. I used the 2oz jar which is the smallest size and it retails for only $5. Initially I was a little apprehensive about whether or not 2oz would be enough for all of my hair. But to my surprise it was, and I have a pretty good amount of hair.

Glare: I can't really call it a glare because my issue really has nothing to do with this product. I've mentioned it before but I have really soft hair which makes it difficult to achieve great next day hair. I've tried sleeping in a bonnet but that only mushes and flattens my curls. I've read suggestions about twisting your curls into sections before bed each night but....I'm a low maintenance kinda girl and trust me when I say that I don't have the patience for that. Everyone is different but I've just found it easier for me to do a wash & go in the mornings and be done with it. Next day hair is another reason why I alternate from curly to straight a lot because obviously I don't want to reset my hair with product ever single day.

Would I Recommend It? YES! I could really see myself using this as a staple product throughout the summer. If you're not sure about buying the 16oz I'd definitely recommend trying the 2oz so you can get a feel of how it works for you.

Overall Glam: It's a great product and it's affordable! It worked well for my hair and I really like the results. I still have questions about my curl type, I really don't know what type I am. My hair is generally more wavy at the roots and more coily and curly towards the ends. My hair tends to do its own thing so that varies too lol.

* The Get Set Hair Jelly currently retails as follows; 2oz retails for $5, 8oz retails for $15 and the 16 oz is $25. To learn more about the company, the products or to purchase, please visit wondercurl.com .
