Customer Reviews:

Great hold for all day styling

This styling gel provides a strong hold that lasts all day without feeling stiff or crunchy. It also adds a nice shine to my hair.

Leaves residue and flakes

While the hold is good, this styling gel leaves a residue in my hair that is difficult to wash out. It also flakes throughout the day, which is not a good look.

Perfect for short hairstyles

This styling gel is great for short hairstyles. It provides a strong hold that keeps my hair in place without making it look greasy or weighed down.

Not suitable for humid weather

While this styling gel works well in normal conditions, it does not hold up well in humid weather. My hair becomes frizzy and loses its hold within a few hours.

Strong scent that lingers

This styling gel has a strong scent that is overwhelming. It also lingers throughout the day, which is not pleasant for those around me.

Good hold, but difficult to apply

While the hold of this styling gel is good, it is difficult to apply evenly throughout my hair. It also dries quickly, making it hard to make any adjustments.

Product Summary:

The Kenra Styling Gel 17 provides a decent hold but may leave hair feeling dry. It enhances the natural shine of curly hair, although its strong scent might not be appealing to everyone. This gel's smooth and lightweight texture allows for easy, even application without leaving a sticky or crunchy residue.

It is particularly suitable for curly, wavy, and frizzy hair types, but not recommended for very thick or thin hair. The product comes in a large tube, ensuring long-term use, and is conveniently washable with water. However, overuse can lead to sticky, frizzy, and flaky hair, and its firm consistency might make brushing through hair challenging.

Overall, Kenra Styling Gel 17 is a practical choice for daily hairstyling, offering flexibility especially on wet hair.
