Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flakes ALOT The first time I tried this gel i used it over shea moisture curling smoothie, put 6 twists in, took them down and had brown particles all in my hair and shirt. I gave this a second try using the gel only on wet hair and next morning, to my surprise, my hair still had flakes. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. It makes your hair hard and dry and will leave you hair full of flakes and your clothes will get damaged as well. God forbid you wear a black shirt. I normally never have to make negative reviews but this was just beyond disappointing. I dont know whats going on with Shea Moisture but they have recently changed their ingredients in a lot of their products and they are trash now smh. And for the price, these products are no longer worth it. Time to search elsewhere for good natural hair care products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Edge Destroyer I gave this gel MULTIPLE chances. It flakes up something awful and it dries out my hair. I have 4a hair that is generally easy to manage and I can use most products. But this right here? Broke off my edges. Like to the point that I had to switch which side I part my hair. I like most Shea Moisture products but this ain’t it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product left my hair flaky I bought this product at Cvs and I was so excited to try it. I used it on a Wash N Go and on a puff and both times I used it I had severe flakes. My entire shirt was full of flakes. And I only used a little. I absolutely love shea moisture but this is one product I will never use again. I could not get my money back for it so I'm going to throw it away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't hold like i thought This didn't hold my type 4 permed hair down at all. I'm looking to gel my edges once and be done for the day lol. Maybe a touch up once later on but that's it. I love all the other JBCO products from Sheamoisture but this one wasn't for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clumps, holds for daaaays, and doesn’t flake! I have spent a pretty penny on gels and other stylers. It took me until a few months ago to give this gel a try. I live in the Midwest, US, so the seasons change from winter to summer in the same day seemingly. Dew points vary non-stop! My hair is smooth and wavy some days, and others it can be a frizzy variety of type to and 3. I wear it longer than my shoulders. I have mildly course and high and medium porosity with a wavy outer layer and ringlets underneath. I’ve tried soooo many different brands based on IG and YouTube divas having amazing results. I liked a few ok, but nothing lasted past day one. Then, I used this product...boom! All I have to do to refresh is spritz some water on my hair and mildly “scrunch the crunch” once dry. I mean, none of the other gels would crunch again once the cast was broken. This one does with water and the right amount used! Seriously, I hope I never run out of this stuff. I use it after my leave-in and an oil usually. Sometimes, depending on dewpoints, I mix it with KC Custard. I don’t get flakes, and my hair just appears more like it all belongs on the same head lol! I have used too much a few times, and the cast it gave me was perfect for sleeping in a pineapple top, but it would’ve been a challenge trying to STC otherwise. When I apply, I make sure my hair is soaking wet. I feel the clumps forming as I apply. I plop my hair and diffuse it on cold after a while. Is guess the gel could be too drying if you didn’t use a leave-in prior. It’s definitely not a moisturizing gel for me, but it’s not destroying my hair or leaving it too dry at all either. I’ve researched the heck out of the ingredients and product itself. I’m not entirely sure why more people aren’t using this one. Maybe you just have to have the exact hair equation? All I know is it’s my holy grail gel, and much cheeper than most of the others that were just ok! (To me, it smells like clay...not bad, just clay lol)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love the hold..FINALLY I have tried other products but this is going to be my staple for wash and goes. I washed my hair and conditioned then placed this into sections from root to ends while wet and dried with hair dyer while holding my ends. It left my hair shiny and my curls were POPPIN! yes, it's a little crunchy but I need it especially when summer comes. I am going on day 3 and have't had any flakes or frizz. I love this please don't discontinue!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves Hair Crunchy and Flaky The Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Max Hold Gel description states" it leaves Hair without crunchiness and Flakes". The Statement is not true my Hair was crunchy, Hard and had Flakiness. I am very disappointed with this Product as it left my Hair unable to comb out the Gel and left Breakage. Do not purchase this Product if you want to keep your edges.

I have mixed white, gray and some darker hair. I have gone natural. It is kind of out of control. I am using Aunt Jackies, but not holding as I hoped. Which do you recommend? I use Nioxin to wash with, for now.

Does the ingredient, fragrance (essential oil blend), mean there are only essential oils in the fragrance? Can you tell me exactly what ingredients are in the "fragrance"?

Asked by: Catt515
Our Essential Oil Blend is proprietary.

Hi Can the Max hold gel be layered with the styling lotion?  If so, how would it be applied? Also, is this item available in stores? Thank you

Asked by: rainydaze
Hi Rainydaze, You can use this with the Styling Lotion. If using together, you will want to use the Lotion first followed by the Max Hold Gel. This can be found in Target stores.
