Rediscovered (Aura) Naturalle Hypoallergenic gel

CsaracCsarac Posts: 861Registered Users
I used 3 half-dollar sized puddles CK first on plopped hair, while my hair was still flipped upside down. Then, while still upside down, added a quarter sized puddle of the Naturalle hypo gel. Flipped my head back up added one more quarter size puddle to each side and scrunched - it was so squishy and I had that squishy sound for once!

I didn't touch it to let the whole thing "set" then let it air dry for a while, like 30 minutes or so, then diffused. FANTASTIC hair - shiny, no crunch, curls/waves beautifully defined and nice volume AND it worked in sticky humid weather and in the rain we had today.

I never realized this gel (which I used alone in the past and didn't like for some reason - I don't think I used enough when I tried it last time) would work so well with CK but it does. Bonus that I don't need to use a much of the expensive CK to get frizz free results!

Just wanted to share.
HG: Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee (always and forever)
Cantu Naturals s & c (shampoo 1x a week), use conditioner as a co-wash every day and LI under my gel.


Air dry then diffuse canapy layers only for volume
Coconut oil before/after coloring grays and on ends.

2b/c mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color, protein sensitive but I still need it sometimes, glycerin-sensitive (I think) in high humidity. After 16 years on NC.com I FINALLY figured it out..

    I will have to try this! I've used the Aura gel by itself and it didn't have quite enough hold. But it may be time for it to come out again!

    I hope you like it! I am soooo pleased this works for me. I plan to experiement with the gel alone when it's cold out.

    I can use CK alone but I need to use a TON to get the results I want and I simply can't afford it so it's nice that the Naturalle gel has a similar texture and I don't get stiff hard hair at all with it like I do with Biolage Gelee or BRHG. I may even try it alone over a leave-in when it gets cold out again.

    I am not CG at all but I love that these rinse out clean and don't coat or build up in my hair.
