KINKY CURLY CURLING CUSTARD
The Kinky Curly Curling Custard ($14.39, target.com) is hands down one of the best gels on the market. Yeah, I said it. If your hair pattern has any sort of curl, kink or coil, this lightweight gel will make it pop and hold its shape for days. It works wonders for defining my hair, which is majority type 3, as well as my friend’s more tightly coiled, type 4 hair. My favorite thing about the custard is that it’s made with all natural ingredients including agave nectar and aloe vera juice, which make it great not only for hold but for moisture as well. While I use a leave-in religiously, this is one of the only gels I would dare to put on my naked hair.
