Curly Hair Gels for Summer

We have said it once, we will say it 101 more times - everyone needs a gel. As the weather warms, this is even more true. Having a go-to gel will keep your frizz at bay, and protect your luscious locks from the increasing humidity. We have rounded up some of our favorite gels to kick off your hot curl summer (frizz free, of course)!


Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel Curls Monthly Partner

The Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Gel is number one on our summer-gel-must-tries for a reason. This advanced formula has Anti-Frizz Nano Technology to lock in moisture and lock out humidity as the weather warms. It is glycerin free, another anti-humidity helper, and contains protein for those bouncy curls we all lust over. It gives your curls a medium to heavy hold, and even contains UV filters to protect against environmental stressors. Our subscribers loved this one in our April mailer, rightfully so, and the full-size version can be purchased here! Use code CURLSMONTHLY, valid until 5/31.

Ecoslay Jello Shot

Ecoslay Jello Shot Curls Monthly Partner

This gel is as strong as it’s real Jell-o Shot counterpart, that’s for sure! Formulated with Okra Extract, Aloe Vera Juice, and Chamomile, this thick gel will hold your curls in place all summer long. Shop it in our October Past Mailer or buy the full-sized version here! P.S. Use code CurlVit15


Inahsi Define and Shine Gel

Inahsi Define and Shine Fragrance Free Gel Curls Monthly Partner

This gel is named define and shine for a very good reason. What makes it perfect for your summer curl routine? It is lightweight (no weighed down curls over here!) and fragrance free.
