Smell&Consistency: Like most Aubrey products, this gel had an herbal smell. I added lavender oil to overpower the original scent. The consistency is similar to flax seed gel. Thick, but not Eco-styler thick, a little gumpy.

Review: This gel has great hold and did not leave my hair dry, but very soft. Along with very soft hair, I also had great definition when I took my twists out. HOWEVER, I noticed flakes in my hair after the second day of wearing twists. Flakes were visible in my hair when I took my twists out as well. Bummer! Since I love the Aubrey company so much (mainly because GPB is incredible), I decided to give the gel another go. The same thing happened. As much as I liked the softness, hold, and definition, I am not going to risk having to re-wash my hair due to flakes that this product caused. I used my shea light mixture and twisted my hair a couple of days ago and there are no flakes in my hair. This proves to me that it was the gel that caused my hair to flake.

Will I use this product again? Unfortunately not:(

*Please try this product for yourself if you are interested. All heads of hair are different and respond to products differently.

Desperately looking for a natural hair gel that works for my hair aka Evelyn

  1. Have you tried using aloe vera gel by itself?


  2. Hey Maggi. I've used the kind in a big gallon, but that is too watery to use as gel. I've seen it in whole food stores, but the one that I looked at awhile ago seemed like it had alcohol or some other added ingredients. I'll check the store that I frequent here and see what they have.


  3. Aubrey Organics products are great! I always buy them at You can use my coupon code NAK992 to get $ 5 off + free shipping for orders over $ 40 + free samples. They ship worldwide.


  4. Ooh, thank you for the tip! I know I'd like to take advantage of that.
