For those of us embracing our natural curls, all we want is long-lasting, defined curls that are easy to manage with little frizz. Is this asking too much? With a few tweaks to your wash day routine and trying out different products, you can achieve the curls of your dreams!

A holy grail product for long-lasting curls is a strong-hold gel. Some curlies shy away from gels, afraid of the stickiness or crunchiness that they associate with gel products. Curl gels have come a long way and when you know how to use them properly, they can be the secret ingredient for curls that last. 

Have you tried our Mega Hold Gel?

Many of our customers are big fans of the lightweight Enhancing Gel which has a softer hold, but have you given our Mega Hold Gel a try? For those who love products with more hold, the stronger Mega Hold Gel is the one they reach for to perfect those long-lasting curls. The Mega Hold Gel is used in exactly the same way as the Enhancing Gel, applied after the Hydrating Creme and scrunched into the hair to add definition. The only difference is that once your hair is dry, you scrunch your curls to break up the gel cast that the Mega Hold Gel creates.

Some people stay away from gels that create a cast, but it could be the vital step in your routine that you’re missing. What does a gel cast do? One thing the gel cast does is protect the hair against frizz while drying, either while diffusing or air-drying. Amazing, right?!

The gel cast also helps each curl dry in its natural curl pattern and maintain definition, so all the effort you put in when styling doesn’t go to waste. 

Our Mega Hold Gel is thicker in texture and contains natural sugar to form this cast. The sugar lifts the curls and holds them tighter throughout the drying process for maximum definition. For soft, defined curls with no crunch, all you have to do is scrunch your hair when it’s 100% dry to break the cast. If you have a more stubborn cast, try smoothing a little of our Hair Oil in your hands to soften the cast and make it easier to scrunch. To see how to scrunch-out-the-crunch, check out our tutorial here.

 

How to use the Mega Hold Gel in your routine

A good foundation for amazing curls is key!

Always make sure to prep your hair before styling with our Hydrating Curl Creme. Apply this on soaking wet hair, straight after rinsing out your Conditioner to add moisture and smooth frizz. The Creme also helps your lovely curls to form.

Gently scrunch dry with the Microfibre Towel to remove excess water and add definition, then apply our Mega Hold Gel to lock in the curls. For extra hold and definition, add a bit more gel when your hair is about 80% dry.

As an extra step in your routine you can do a little Denman brush styling for more definition and smooth curls. Our gorgeous OC x Denman brush is the perfect tool for styling.

Protect Your Curls For Long-Lasting Results

To maintain your curls in between wash days, sleep protection is essential. Using a silk pillowcase or a satin turban will reduce frizz and tangles overnight, while also preserving your curls. This will make a huge difference and ensure your curls keep looking their best!

In the morning, the Mega Hold Gel can be used to refresh your curls too and add more bounce. Not sure how to revive your next-day curls? See our helpful guide hereon how to refresh your curls with the Mega Hold Gel. 

Have you been struggling with overly soft curls that lack definition and don’t last past wash day? The Mega Hold Gel could be what your curls are looking for! Using a strong-hold gel will add long-lasting definition so your hair looks fabulous on wash day and beyond. Give it a try on your next wash day and see the difference it makes to your curls.
