I can't think of a better word for this product other than "amazing!" It works perfectly and i love how it gave me tips on using my diffuser to dry my hair! My curls were beautiful, soft, bouncy, and voluminous! Such a good price and lasts a long while, i only wish it could come in a gallon container! I use it when i want a fast, amazing hair day...which is everyday (: love love love this product.

This product made my wavy hair very frizzy. Besides that, I didn't get any bouncy curls because of the frizz. What a bust. Returned it and won't buy again. I'll stick with my usual Beyond the Zone Noodle Head Curling Creme which is $5.49 for 6 oz at Sally Beauty Supply.

I really like this Curl Gel.
I actually use it along with this brand's curl mousse - which on it's own makes my hair too crunchy/stiff, but used alongside the gel is a nice combo for a bit of extra hold. On it's own, the gel is still great.
Since the ratio is about ~3:1 gel to mousse, I will review the gel.
1) My curls are defined and hydrated and bouncy as promised.
2) My hair is easy to work with - not stiff or sticky.
3) The price is awesome.
4) Easily accessible - every store I have been at has it.
5) Great smell.
6) As mentioned above, on it's own I feel like I need a bit more hold.
I put a dollar-coin sized amount in my hands and work it through very wet hair. If using the mousse, I take a very small amount and work it through JUST the ends of my hair.
I tip my head over for a 2-minute blowdry with a diffuser attachment. I just use the heat to get rid of the dripping water.
I then hand scrunch my hair and let it air dry the rest of the way.

just finished up a bottle of this today, and it was bittersweet... happy because I am desperately trying to use up my huge product junkie stash, but sad because I really liked it and I dont have a back up!
This gel did what it says... it gives hold. It gives me shiny, bouncy curls. It scrunches out nicely without doing the flaky yuck mess. I can even comb out my hair without residue showing, and have even flat ironed later with this and been impressed with the results - my hair just looked shiny and smooth. It's good stuff. I even feel like it helps lock in moisture.
I am impressed, it's super cheap and I do like the packaging, the top stays clean, it squeeze out easily and I was able to get out just about every last drop.
Oh, and it smells really good! It has a salon product smell, that's clean. I love smelling this way!
The only thing I can think of bad is that if I apply too much, it can feel a little sticky and take a REALLY long time to dry. Also, I use so much since I have so much hair and I use it up really fast, but the bottle is about the perfect size for travel for me.
I am pretty sure this is 'cone free, so it will rinse out easily w/o build up and can be used for the CG method. I co wash most days and my hair seems to rinse clean every morning.
for reference, I have 3b naturally very curly hair with a combination of tight ringlets & big S-curls. My hair tends to be dry, and so I always use this in conjunction with a leave in conditioner for frizz control. I use scrunch it into my hair when it's still very wet just out of the shower. I scrunch out extra water & product with a microfiber/curlslikeus towel and either let it air dry, or diffuse until 75% dry and as long as my hair doesn't dry funny, I get pretty consistent results.
I really like this and recommend it to any curlies out there I will for sure repurchase the next time I need gel.

I think I used this years ago when it was a different name, in a squeeze tube. It feels like a very light weight gel, and you hardly notice it as a gel at all. It's like an anti-frizz tamer with a slight hold. I don't have course curly hair, but it is thick with beach waves. My hair was in desperate need of something. I was about to get it cut! I hate gels for curly hair because they only make them crunchy or so shiny that it's plastic shine. This has kept my hair soft and under control, in 100 + degree weather. It smells good, and doesn't leave behind a sticky residue.

I've only used this twice so far, so I'm holding a lippie back, just in case something happens and this stuff stops working for me.
I have used this for the past two evenings, and both nights, I have gotten what the bottle claims I will get from using it; bouncy curls! I have mostly wavy hair, and I'm a product junkie, so I am constantly looking for the product that does everything so that I don't have to layer products (my hair gets weighed down and won't spring up and curl if too many styling products are put into it). I don't even HAVE curly hair; I have wavy hair. But for the past two nights, I've actually had curls! And my hair is even curling on the side where it usually only lamely waves! I am so excited about this. I used a little less last night than I did tonight, and my hair was a bit bouncier, yet not very curly; still loved the results. Tonight I used about three pea sized globs of it scrunched into damp hair after smoothing in leave-in conditioner, and I am just amazed at how curly, shiny, and frizz-less my hair is!
It did dry really crunchy, but once my hair was 100% dry, it was soft, shiny, and bouncy! I love it so far. This has worked better than just about any gel that I have tried so far, though I may be speaking too soon. I will update if my opinion changes.

Honestly, the only reason I would buy this again is because I have so many other TRESemme products and I don't like to mix brands. Not saying it's bad or anything... it's just not the best. It definitely does the trick though, and considering how thick my hair is that's saying something. Doesn't leave your hair crunchy either.

I hate crunchy, crispy curls so I normally stay far away from gels. I've been having really good luck with Tresemme lately, so I thought I'd take a chance with this. I love it! I don't use it the way the bottle says to. I don't like to use a dryer and my hair always looks bad when I do. I tried their method and didn't like the result at all. But if I let my hair dry naturally, then use this, it's amazing. I work it into my hair and put it on top of my head in a loose bun. Then I apply my makeup and by the time I'm done I have bouncy, defined curls with no frizz and no crunch!
Plus, it's dirt cheap and the bottle is huge.

I tried this product for the first time tonight and I absolutely love it! I have very fine, curly hair and I have tried many products before. I have a few favorites, and this one is going in the pile. I put a good sized amount in my hair (think half-dollar sized) because it was so light I felt like a small amount might not do anything. Then, as the bottle suggests, I blow dried my hair with a diffuser until it was 90% dry. After that, I twisted a few face-framing pieces into ringlets and a few others scattered throughout my hair. With other products, I have to fight my hair for it to do what I want (including curling how I want instead of it having a mind of its own) but with this, it listened to me right away! :) The end result was beautiful, soft ringlets and it made my hair look a lot fuller than it actually is. I used this in conjunction with a sulfate-free shampoo, which is always recommended for girls with curls, and a curl conditioner.

I LOVE this product! To be honest, if this were discontinued.. i'm not sure what i'd do!!! This is the ONLY product i use all day, every day. I put this in my damp hair after it towel dries and it works wonders. If i let my hair air dry with no product, my curls are half okay & half blah (frizzy). Using this product is all i need to give that extra umph to my curls=] If there are some strands that don't turn out so well, i just twist them with my fingers and wah-la! The problems about stiffness and product flakes are very very rare for me. And even when it does get that stiff feeling, it isn't bad enough to bother me.

good gel holds hair as wanted and doesnt get all hard and stiff like others

The scent is pleasant compared to other curling products and the price is cheap. This gives me soft, loose curls without feeling crunchy and weighed down. I take my showers in the early evening, towel dry hair, scrunch, apply this product, let my hair air dry, then go to sleep. I prefer this over Tigi Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier. However, Tigi is around $12/bottle, smells bad, and leaves my hair crunchy and sticky (that stuff looks, smells, and has the consistency of glue!!). So...for soft curls that smell GOOD, I use TRESemme Curl Care and will continue to!

i wish it worked, however never again. my hair looks much better with this prodct.it felt like my hair was coated in a film and dull, no curls...it is cheap and the smell is ok...

Well, this was the first time I used this product, so I have nothing to compare this gel to,, but this is how I felt about this product.
The curls weren't that strong, but I didn't really mind that. What I did mind was that it made my hair a bit sticky and stiff. Maybe it wasn't sticky as other gels, but I could still feel quite a stiffness in my hair. When I brushed them off, all my curls were gone. But, except for that, the packaging made the gel very convenient to use, and the smell is just great.
P.S. With this product you can only achieve either light curves or softness,

I love this product. It provides soft, bouncy and natural looking curls. Your hair look and feel fresh. One of my favorites. UPDATE:Another great hair day thanks to Tressemme Curls Defining Gel and lots of compliments. WOWWW!! What a great product. :):)

I have naturally wavy hair that tends to frizz at the slightest bit of humidity -soooo annoying! Since it has been raining all the damn time lately, I have given up on trying to keep my hair straight and sleek, so I'm letting my hair do whatever it wants. This stuff keeps it looking smooth but with nice waves so I will continue to repurchase. Smells pleasent and works great for the price!!!

This gel didnt really do much for my curly hair. I need more hold for my curls. I do like the smell, and the nozzle on the bottle is easier to use than messing with a flip top lid. Overall I think this would work better for someone with less curly more wavy hair. It's pretty cheap so it's worth a try.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This gel provides a moderate amount of hold and does not make my hair crunchy or hard. It also smells nice. Overall, I am not crazy about this gel, because it does not give my hair the body and bounce I am looking for. I have long medium-thick hair with waves and curls, and this gel does not add drama to what I already have. So, I would not recommend this gel; however, I will keep using it until I find something better.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
My standby gel for my curly/wavy hair. Smells nice and light (the scent doesn't last which is good), works well, and is dirt cheap. I try other things and always come back to this.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Tan Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I love to use this along with the curling mousse! Works wonderful with my hair without making my hair stiff or frizzy!
