Description:
For a while now, Jessicurl customers have been asking for a stronger hold styling product. If we had to rate our current styling line up, Gelebration Spray and Rockin’ Ringlets would be light hold, and Confident Coils would be medium. That definitely leaves room in the category for a firmer hold styling product and we hear you that you’ve been filling that need elsewhere. Well, you don’t have to anymore, Jessicurl fans! After months of testing, we’re super excited to introduce Spiralicious Styling Gel, the thicker, stronger hold styler for you’ve been asking for.

Spiralicious is much thicker than Confident Coils and very gel-like in consistency but does not flake in the hair like many gels can. While it can dry crunchy, that initial crunch scrunches out really easily, leaving the hair very soft to the touch, but the curls hold up all day. No ramen-noodle curls here! One of the best parts about it is the frizz control. Seriously people, the frizz control on this stuff is NO JOKE! If you currently use Rockin’ Ringlets, you’ll find that the two work together really well. If you don’t find you need a curl enhancer (which is what Rockin’ Ringlets is), Spiralicious will provide you with fabulous hold and frizz control but without giving you “helmet head.” It’s pretty awesome.

  • Blissy101 - Hair Type: Type 4a

    So far so good. I don't have a full sized bottle of this product, but I did try a sample size. I'm going to be honest, I am no gel expert, and when I cirst felt how runny and liquidy this product felt I was afraid that it wouldn't provide enough hold for my 4a curls. I used it for a braidout, and I loved how uzing just a small amount of the product leaves your hair feeling smooth. While I was applying it, I could be rest assured that the product got from roots to end, because it just saturated the whole section, as if on contact it melted throughout the length of my locks. In terms of hold? Well, while using this product I was able to achieve my first defined braidout with almost no frizz! I am so happy that Jessicurl offers samples, necause otherwise I would have assumed that it wasn't for 4 type girls! I will definetely be purchasing a bottle of this stuf the next time I go to target!

    I have 3c hair. I love this gel in combo with the too shea conditioner as a leave in. My hair is normally dry. This set keeps my hair smooth and silky to the touch with the perfect amount of hold. I'm so happy that I gave this a try. I dont even know what made me try this because I would have never thought these products would work for my hair type, but I'm in love. It makes me want to do my hair more often.

  • sherida01 - Hair Type: Type 3a

    At first I really loved how it didn't flake on me, and smelled AMAZING in comparison to my old gel. But now after about a weeks use, I noticed that my bangs (the place where I primarily applied this gel) are soooooo thin and loose compared to the rest of my curls. I'm so afraid about what that means and wonder if this is thinning out my hair. Btw I haven't straightened my hair once since I started using the gel. :/

    Loved this gel. I didn't realize that it has a creamy texture to it which was a pleasant surprise! I washed my hair with Devacurl nopoo and then conditioned with Suave Naturals coconut which I also use as a leave in. Then I blotted my hair so it wasn't dripping with a tshirt and put in 3 pumps of Devacurl FFVF then I sealed it up with the Spiralicious Gel. I diffused it to about 85% dry and I got great curls! I only gave it 4 stars because it didn't rinse out as well as I would have liked, but I will try it again, maybe it was just a fluke.

    I bought this thinking it would be a step up from Rockin' Ringlets, but was disappointed. After three or four uses, using different amounts to try and make it work, I shoved it under my sink and ordered more of my old product. My curls had less umph and more ewwy-stickyness-lankness than ever before. Would not recommend unless you have much thicker hair that can handle it.

  • LeahDK - Hair Type: Type 4c

    I received a sample of this in the mail and decided to try it in place of the gel I normally use when doing my twist outs, because I love some of Jessicurl's other products. When I took out my twists the next day, they were extremely defined, which was fantastic, but the gel turned white all in my hair and it didn't look very good. I had to let my super defined twist out go and wash my hair all over again. I will not be using this product again.

    Hair type actually 3c-4a. Thick and low porosity. I have finally found a replacement for my beloved UFD curly magic. I used this on top of Bee mine deep conditioner as a leave in. My curls were elongated and defined with no frizz. So excited to have a good hair day. Will be stocking up on my Spiralicious and revisiting some more Jessicurl products.

    Works great with my curls. I have great definition and all-over curls without "flat areas". Definitely doesn't weigh down my curls. Plays well with my other products. At first I didn't use it on very wet hair, but after reading other reviews (and the instructions on the bottle), I retried and love it! I just crunch out any stiffness once my hair dries. I have only used with other leave ins, but will try alone soon.....

  • chloe92us - Hair Type: Type 2c

    I'm updating my review because I've been using this now for 3 months, and am on my 2nd bottle. It very quickly became my go-to HG gel. It works with every LI I've tried, although I usually use JC Too Shea, or CJ Curl Rehab. It plays well with all other products. I've used it alone, or cocktailed with another product underneath. Every time, I get soft, clumpy curls with no frizz! The amount of crunch isn't crazy like other hard hold gels, but it holds the curls firm as if it were a hard hold super crunchy gel. I don't even have to SOTC, I just run my hands over my hair like I'm going to put it in a ponytail, and voila! No crunch. It seems to also help hold the moisture in my hair; I don't get frizzy ends by the end of the day. For anyone scared of the polyquats, I have had ZERO build up, and I use this at least a couple times a week and mainly cowash. This is just different from every other gel out there and I have at least 20 gels in my stash, so I know! Order a bottle and try it!

  • infamousbri77 - Hair Type: Type 2c

    This is my new HG gel, seriously! I have a love/hate relationship with gels. I've had a really hard time finding one that I like. I live in a very very dry climate and I find most gels just dry out my hair really bad, but not this one. It has great hold and I feel like it accentuates my curls very nicely. I chose the citrus lavender scent, which is very nice and fresh, but fades and does not stay in the hair. It leaves my hair moisturized but with hold! That's all I've been looking for in a gel, finally! Thank you Jessicurl! My one and only complaint about this gel is if you use to much product or get heavy handed, as you are scrunching out the crunch that you get some white residue on the over gelled sections of hair. This problem can be avoided once you figure out how much to use, I also notice this problem doesn't happen if you use the product on really wet hair. I tend to go overboard with products when I first try them out, so I wasn't super surprised. That is seriously the only complaint I have with this product and its so minimal I will definitely be repurchasing!

    More 3A--love the JC line--best shampoo and cond. for me--gentle lather and Aloeba. Have been using CK coil jam with these--received a sample of this and I am not disappointed. A bit difficult to figure out the right amount but it is worth trying--very good hold, minimum frizz, great island fantasy fragrance. Love JC.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. It allows my curls to absolutely shine and is the perfect leave-in conditioner/gel for me. Has the right amount of slippage and does not flatten my hair. My new go-to product. Thanks Jessi for creating something just great.

  • Megabird - Hair Type: Type 3a

    type 3A--I really like this gel. . Pros are nice hold--not too crunchy, minimal frizz, at least 4 good hair days for me. Cons are very thin consistency makes it hard for me to determine correct amount to use--I'm still experimenting. My first choice for a gel is still the Curly Kinks Coil Jam, but this is an acceptable runner up. Definitely recommend other curly girls to try.

    I want to give this 5 stars, but it is too inconsistent. On good days this stuff is GREAT, but the other half of the time it's merely 'meh.' I've tried Jessicurl products on and off for about 7 years, and I always ended up disappointed because they left my hair flat, with white flakes, and not enough hold. The pros were shine and curl formation. Pros of this gel: hold, shine, and frizz control (I live in south FL, so that's impressive). Cons: I purchased Gelebration Spray because this gel took some of the curl out of my hair, still see white flakes when I scrunch out the crunch, and the bad/flat days mentioned above. My hair is thin, loves product, and has 2C/3A loose waves/curls. The white flakes are probably because I have to use so much to get the best results. In the end I ordered another bottle because I like the touchability and shine I get. My other mainstay product, Mop C-Curl Cream was starting to build up too much and lacked that softness.

    Love this product! It is my new go to. The first day I used this product alone it was windy and it was drizzling all day. This product stood up to the weather and my hair did not frizz at all! I do prefer to pair it with rockin ringlets although you do not have to.

  • Shinningstar - Hair Type: Type 3c

    This is my new holy grail gel. I find that it works better for my hair than CIAB and I love the fact that it is thick in consistency so you don't need to use a lot. It also plays well with my leave in conditioner so there were no residue issues because it just melted into the conditioner. But what I love the most is that it elongated my tight curls into cascading ringlets. It also clumps the curls nicely and I don't see any frizz in sight on this windy rainy day. I love this gel and plan to stock up on this for the winter.

    I ordered a sample of this (and will be ordering a full size bottle as soon as it's back in stock!) and I was very impressed. I only had to use a little compared to the amount of gel I normally use. I had amazing definition, NO frizz (a miracle for my hair!), awesome clumping, and nice shine! It was an all around winner. Even more amazingly, my clumps were still intact on day 2! Didn't even need to add anything- just fluffed and walked out the door. Normally in the morning, I am a frizzy mess, forget about clumps staying in overnight! Overall, great gel!

  • marytheseal - Hair Type: Type 3a

    Love love love this new gel! I have short 3a hair, and I admit I probably used a little too much product the first couple of times. A little goes a long way. It comes out white and creamy looking, but you can feel the thickness of the product in your hands. Using the Spiralicious in combination with Rocking Ringlets has given me the best curls my head has seen in a long, long time! I get great clumping when I let it air dry, with hardly any frizz (which is a MIRACLE because I am a frizz magnet). It does tend to set into a crunchy cast, but that's nothing new to many curlies. Just crunch it out once my hair is dry and I have soft, bouyant curls. Also- I love the citrus lavender scent. In my hair, it lingers just a little bit to get a hint of lavendar when I shake my hair throughout the day. I can't wait to get my hands on a larger size of this product!

    Love this gel! I have a mix of 3c/3b with a tiny touch of 3a and I am getting same as or better results as I was getting with two products (confident coils and gelebration) and with minimal to no frizz. Scrunches out nicely and my hair is so soft but holds up all day. Still playing around with the amount needed because I think I was too heavy handed first couple times and you really don't need need to put it on heavily. The gel has a nice consistency. Not too sticky or slimy like some gels are. Distributes nicely. Quickly becoming my favorite gel. Love Jessicurl!

    This is an incredible gel - great frizz control, excellent definition and gorgeous curls galore! But when I actually got second day hair for the first time in my life, I was euphoric. THANK YOU, JESSICURL! I already use the entire line, but this has to be the best product yet. I am one happy customer!

    I used this product for the first time today and all I can say is WOW! I love it. It has great hold, lots of volume. I used it alone today to see how it works by itself and I don't think I need any other products with it.

    Okay, I have really long, fine and super super super thick 3a/3b hair. I participated in the testing of this product before it was revealed. I still have product left in my teeny tiny test tube after several months (that is with waist length hair almost), and I am still using it. On my hair, this product goes forever! I knew that as soon as it was revealed I would buy it, so I did THAT DAY (yesterday). Now I'm dying for it to get here. You should try this product, I am so picky, and I just love it. The consistency is really neat and not super sticky, sort of like a lotion but stronger. This is only the second styling product in two years that has made the cut for being a regular part of my hair care regimen. I use it by itself without having to layer. Try this...no, I am NOT being paid to say this!! ;) I just like to help out my fellow curlies!
