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:(
