After the hair catastrophe that I experienced with the Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Haircare products, as mentioned I had to rinse my hair out and start all over. After all of that I didn’t want to apply too many products to my hair to style. I remembered that I received the new EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Natural Curling Jelly in my gift bag from Arielle Amor’s NYFW Mixer, so I decided to give it a try. I applied a small amount of Trader Joe’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil to moisturize my hair, followed by a small amount of SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Soufflé– which also provides a lot of moisture. I then proceeded to finger shingle my hair with the Eden Curling Jelly, making sure that it remained soaking wet. I let my hair air dry overnight and my coils came out juicy and poppin’.
The EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Natural Curling Jelly is a lightweight gel that provides curl definition with a frizz free, no flaking finish. It doesn’t contain any sulfates, mineral oils, dyes or parabens, and is cruelty free. The jelly can be used for a wash ‘n go and textured styles such as finger shingles, finger coils and twist outs. I find that curling jellies work best on extremely wet hair for best curl definition. My hair dried with a firm and slight crunchy finish, but settled down to a softer hold after a day. To style my hair after it dried, I simply lifted my roots with a pick and gelled my edges down with Gorilla Snot Gel. I’m currently on Day 3 hair and it still looks as good as Day 1, so the style should last at least a week. This was my first time trying EDEN BodyWorks and I’m looking forward to trying more from the brand.
The EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Natural Curling Jelly is available at Sally Beauty $8.49
