Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Gelly In Review

Updated on July 25, 2012 | Source

Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Gelly

I had previously purchased the "Curls Unleashed Defining Creme" and loved it. My curl pattern ranges from 3b to 4a. My hair is wavy to very coily and that product worked great for my hair. However, that product doesn't have a "hold" and for all intent and purposes, wasn't designed too, so I decided to try the Curl Boosting Gelly to maintain moisture, hold back frizz, and give me a light to flexible hold.

I purchased my jar of the Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Gelly from Duane Read and paid $12.99 for a 16 ounce jar which I felt was a great price compared to other "higher-end" holding gels.

Set It Off Curl Boosting Jelly

Curls Unleashed™ Set it Off™ Curl Boosting Jelly is made with soothing aloe vera, wheat protein, vitamin B and other ingredients to help give you gorgeous, “crunchless” curl definition.

My Application of Product

I am a avid wash 'n go wearer and purchased this item with that in mind. As most wash 'n go wearers know, you need a "good" gel to maintain your style while combat-ting frizz.

I applied this product to hair that had already been co-washed, a leave-in conditioner applied (TREsemme Naturals), and Shea Butter was used as an sealant. I did dampen my hair and applied about two quarter size amounts of the Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Gelly in the palms of my hands and worked it throughout my damp hair.

Product glided on smoothly and was very lightly tropically-scented. Immediately I noticed that the product gave my hair a nice shine and wasn't nearly as tacky as other products that I had tried and reviewed.

It took less than an half hour to dry, was not tacky feeling to the touch. It left no noticeable residue on my tresses and there were curls well define and smooth! But the best results of this product was that I had much less SHRINKAGE! Omigosh!

I was very pleased.

My Final Thoughts

I loved, loved, loved the product.


  • I didn't have to use a large amount to get proper coverage.
  • Product dried, on damp hair, under 30 - 45 minutes
  • Gave a light, shiny hold.
  • Held down frizz throughout the day
  • Price Point is Great!
  • Hair was not the bit hard or crunchy!
  • Experienced Less Shrinkage with this product.
  • Doesn't Have parabens


  • Product is NOT completely natural but has other great natural ingredients included.

This was the first gel(ly) that I could actually shake my hair and SEE movement! Curls had bounce for days! (I'm smiling yall! Can't you see me?!)

I must say that the product left my hair unbelievably SOFT and pliable.

Would I purchase again? This is MY new Curl Gelly! It warrants a Holy Grail product status!

Let me know your experience with the product and feel free to leave a comment. Thanks again for stopping by!

Happy Curls to You!

      Interesting to read about this product. I'm always on the lookout for products that will enhance my not-so tight curls. Wonder if this will work for me? Will have to try it out.
