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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not use with other products on your first WNG!! I simply washed/detangled/deep conditioned my hair, rinsed all of the conditioner out (use a deep conditioner that leaves your hair soft&shiny), applied this to wet (more than damp) hair, and let it air dry. I did not use any other product in conjugation with this one due to the risk of flakiness and this was my BEST wash n go to date!! It defined and held my curls like nobody’s business!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left brown flakes and a very stiff feeling Does not have good slip, leaves hair feeling gunky and gross, plus brown flakes. Hair should be soaking wet when using this product. Label says it works on both wet and dry hair but imo that is not the case. I used it on damp hair and when I took down my braids 5 days later I had so many areas that were filled with gunky brown residue!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Let it Snowwww! The flakes were unstoppable. I used it with my curl enhancing smoothie, which is my go to for all styles. I love Shea Moisture but this gel isn’t it. My twist out was crunchy and Flakes. All over my clothes and pillows. The product smells fantastic but I can’t shake my hair out of fear of looking like a head and shoulders commercial.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I bought this gel a few days ago and was so excited. Seeing that it is made from a lot of wonderful ingredients, I didn't hesitate to give it a try. I used it and was so happy that the hold was what it said it would be. It holds great for my 3c/4a hair. But throughout the day I noticed sooooooo much flaking omg. I was so disappointed. I use shea butter and a mixture of my own oils on my hair and for this gel to still create such a massive amount of flakes was so surprising. I just expect better from this brand. Now I don't know what to do with the remains because I can't walk around flakey. I have tried other gels with similar ingredients at a cheaper price that didn't give me this problem. Come on Shea Moisture. I want to support :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yay! Finally, Strong hold! This gel finally has the hold I need! I’ve tried many other styling products, some great but never gave me the hold I need. Even though they claimed to be strong holding. But I’d always end up having to use hairspray. I don’t want to have to do that! And this gel delivers. ZERO flakiness. Yes, some crunch that you have to work out, but isn’t that what gives you the holding power?! I have dry, frizzy, curly, graying, damaged hair. Man that’s pretty bad! But I’m thankful to have found this and I use it in conjunction with the Strengthen & Restore styling lotion. No heavy perfume smell. This helped me cut back on having to use 4-5 products. Give it a try if need control and you’re tired of boxing rounds with your hair! Thank you! Please don’t discontinue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Hold! Wow, this stuff works great for the price! I have 3b medium density curls (porosity unknown) and this gel gives me amazing amazing hold that lasts for at least two days. I am a big fan of products that give me definition and control frizz and this gel does it! Highly recommend. Can be drying. I layer JBCO Leave-In underneath to get my best results.

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.

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

Can low porosity use this?

Asked by: Ash97

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.
