    I love this product, I have used this with the Almond Jai, Coconut Water Style Setter as well as the Coconut Water Leave-In treatment with awesome results everytime. I don't use all three leave-ins, I normally just use one or the other, but each time my curls turns out beautifully moisturized, shiny and has wonderful curl definition. It does not flake at all and my wash and go last about 3 days and could last longer, but my scalp starts to itch. Imo this is soooo much more moisturizing than kccc and it doesn't make your hair hard as a brick. I have recommended this product to all my curl friends. PS I buy multiple bottles at a time so I won't run out.

    I love this only on dry hair after a small base of cococurls on my dry ends. For Some reason, this lotion pumps up my curls and keeps them in place the whole day. On wet hair, as a gel, iTS way too strong a definer for soft bouncy curls, kind of like kcc with a faster dry. 3b Curls, low porosity.

    Low porosity, 4a here. Along my journey, I have stopped women with beautiful curls of all textures and each time I ask them what "cocktail" of products they use, they just mention a hair gel. No leave-in, no oil, no conditioner. So, I have been looking for a styler I can apple directly to my hair after washing/deep conditioning for maximum hold and definition. Most of the stylers I tried were drying after a few days or needed multiple layers, which would cause frizz and buildup after a day or so. It took me a while to try Curl Maker because of the high price, but I finally tried it when I got a gift card + sale. I would gladly pay full price now that I have tried it because it eliminates the need for multiple layering products when styling coily/curly hair. It is a perfect combination of all the great stylers out there. Performance wise, it has the detangling ability of Kinky-Curly Knot Today, the super slip of flaxseed gel, the definition of X-treme wet line, the long-lasting hold of Eco-styler and the moisture of a leave-in conditioner. Most of all, it defines my hair all the way up to the root, which is difficult for most stylers to do with my texture. The consistency is thick, yet slippery and the scent is a fresh grapefruit that fades as your hair dries. The ingredients are nourishing and moisturizing for the hair including nettle, horsetail and Vitamin B-12. No glycerin in this formulation fortunately. The product works well alone for me, but I have tried it on top of Camille Rose almond jai twisting butter, Keracare natural textures leave-in (best combo!), Knot Today and Paul Mitchell The Conditioner with soft and shiny results each time. I have not tried it with my Camille Rose aloe whipped butter gel or curl love moisture milk because those combos do not seem to get good reviews, but I will try it eventually. The hold Curl Maker gives is flexible with movement and it lasts at least for second-day hair. It is truly one-step styling. If you have low porosity hair especially and too many layers of product make your hair undefined or dull, give this product a try. Warm it up before applying for better absorption.

    I paired this with curl junkie beauticurls leave-in conditiiber and the results are on point. My curls are soft, defined, very moisturized and the shine is amazing. To be honest I don't think I need a leave-in right now. That might change once the weather becomes drier. The best part is that I didn't have to apply in sections due to the length of my hair (twa). Imho this is better than kccc for my hair.

    When I first saw Camille Rose Naturals in my beauty supply store, I was so hyped to try it out because of all the great views I've read about it. So I quickly scooped up two products, the Curl Maker and the Curlaide Moisture Butter. When I got home, I quickly washed my hair and styled my hair into a wash and go with the gel. I must say it really delivers, it gives MAXIMUM hold without the flakes. However it does leave my hair crunchy since the hold is so strong. But nothing good ole shea butter cannot fix.

    I used this in conjunction with the Aloe Whipped Butter Gel. Let me tell you, I HAVE NEVER...EVER...HAD CURLS SO BEAUTIFUL!! I have 3C/4A hair and I live in North Carolina. The humidity here reeks havoc on my hair! I always end up with a half frizzy, half curly fro. I tried this after watching several YouTube videos. The price was a deterrent for me. I was afraid to try it just to see it fail. Best money I've ever spent. This is my go to from now on!

    Ok I didn't think it was possible to find a product that I like better than kinky curly curling custard but curl maker is now my go to styler. both products have the same main ingredients but curl maker does not make my hair hard or leave a gel cast, my curls are soft and bouncy and defined. I will be repurchasing this .

    It's a toss up between this and Uncle Funky's Daughter Curl Magic for my favorite styler. Makes my 4a / 3c curls pop and shine. When I saw it on sale I had to grab an extra bottle, even though I'd just cracked open a new one I'd paid full price for. Never want to be without it!

    I put off buying this product because of the price for a long time. I am glad I finally gave in, this product is amazing. I have curls that are tighter, and others that are looser (mostly in the front). This product does a good job of providing hold to all the different curls textures and types without weighing down the looser areas of my hair. This product has a nice smell, but it is faint and not as strong as the Aloe Whip Gel.

    This gel is amazing. Before using this the only gel that would give me good results for a wng was Wet line Xtreme gel, but it left my hair dry & crunchy. I can use this product alone on soaking wet hair & the results are soft, super defined, super shiny koils & curls that lasts for days. I can't wait to use more Camille Rose products.

    This is one of my top three favorite styling products! I use this over a leave in and always end up with shiny defined wonderful curls! It has the perfect amount of hold for my hair. I have already repurchased another bottle even though I'm not even half way through my first bottle. I LOVE, LOVE this jelly! Two thumbs up :)

    the only reason why this doesn't get a 5 is because it does add quite a bit of "crunch" to my curls. this is probably one of the best all natural, vegan, hair gels i've used! the smell is pleasant and doesn't linger too long. it's easy to apply and dries pretty quickly on a warm or cool setting. i get some really nice definition on my 3c curls with this product.

    Awesome! I've used this gel a few times and each time I've gotten great results. Like others, I've tried it with and without a cream base. I used one from the Original Moxy line because that's what I had on hand. I start with freshly co-washed and conditioned hair, then apply Kinky-Curly leave in. Next I added the OM cream product as a light cream layer underneath. My hari is not so much kinky but super duper frizzy! I don't really have a "curl" pattern but more of a z-formation. With this gel, I am able to apply the gel in sections then twirl small sections, dry, untwist and go. All before I go to work in the morning. So that's been my routine this week. I have never ever achieved second day hair so I do mine every single day but with this routine it's pretty fast - except maybe the drying process which I use a portable hood dryer while I do my make-up then switch to a blow dryer with a duffuser attachment to get the still damp parts. My hair is not completely dry when I untwist, but it still looks amazing!

    This gel is OK. I love a good gel and a great hold. This gel is not part of my regular routine. My curls were somewhat defined but I had way more shrinkage than I get with other gels. My hair is very fine so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I will probably not buy this gel anymore. The price point is high for me not to be in love with it.

    I only used this product twice; once with the Camille Rose Moisture Milk and once without the Moisture Milk. My 3c hair hates heavy butters and creams and sits on top of my hair as buildup. I used Curl Maker as suggested by the Youtube reviewers and my hair looked and felt great....until I looked in the mirror and saw all the flakes and dirty buildup! I washed it all out the next day and used the Cocoa Creme Condish by Bobeam as my leave-in and Curl Maker on top of that, Voila! Just like magic, it worked for me and I was able to wear my Wash n Go for two weeks and it was still looking good when I washed it out after 2 weeks.
    Ladies, try the product with something light if you find that it flakes or you get that buildup look.

    I love this product!

    I was skeptical of this product. VERY skeptical. It is expensive for my budget and had WAY to many "raves" for me to trust it. But now, I see what all the hype is about. My 4A curls popped and a wash'n'go lasted longer than normal. I am heavy handed so I had a few white boogers but as the days passed and I refreshed with water, the white boogers disappeared. It took a few tries to get the amount of product just right but I got it. Too much and your hair will feel mushy and sticky for a long time until everything dries (which could take days). Too little and you don't really see any results. So play with the amount in different sections of your hair before applying to your whole head.

    Is also good for braid outs or other styles where you need a little hold but not too much. Bought it as a gift for my curlfriend along with the curlaide moisture butter and she loves them both too!

    This is a staple in my hair care regiment with this gel, the Curl Love Milk and the Curlaide Moisture Butter for my wash and go's. All Camille Rose products that I use leaves my hair (3B/C) soft, moisturized and bouncy curl until my next washing. These are my Holy Grail of products and I will give all the products a chance and I order my products here at CurlMart because of the great deals!

    3c hair
    While I LOVE this brand and appreciate the quality natural ingredients, I did NOT like this gel. It dries my hair out badly. I will say that a little goes a LONG way,so this bottle will last you a good while. I will stick to Kinky Curly Custard for my wash and gos.

    Posted by curlycamille (Type 3c) on 01/31/2015

    I love this stuff! I've been waiting for it to come back in stock because I tried a sample and my hair just loved it. The saying a little goes a long way is key when using this product. If you use too much it could leave your curls too perfect and a little crunchy. For that reason I'm giving it a 4 instead of a 5. You have to play around with the right amount but when you do it leaves your curls defined and so so soft! I'm not too fond of the smell but it's not that bad. It just doesn't smell like normal hair products but that's to be expected with all natural products. Ulitmatley I love this stuff and I'll continue to buy it!

    I spent my $22 bucks hoping for a good botanical gel to tame my 3C/4A tresses. Nevertheless, my hair looked a mess. The gel did define my curls while wet, but the hold did not last once dried. I read so many reviews about this gel, but I guess the climate i live in does this gel no justice. Well back to the Eco-Styler Blue Gel it is :(

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! This stuff okay yeah shelling out $22 bucks is a lot but its like kinky curly you don't need a lot. My curls are soft, and my wash and go last for days!!! I think I have the old formula, but it doesn't bother me because this stuff is gold. I'm literally finished buying any other styler. This is my go to styler nothing can compare. This stuff is definitely worth the money. My hair type is 4A-4B.

    Loved the way it made my hair feel but it left white particles throughout my hair each and every time I used it. So disappointed because I loved the consistency and feel of my hair as well as the smell.

    Second impression: I heavily applied the Almond Jai Butter to soaking wet hair. Afterwards, sectioned my hair into twelve parts and finger combed two pumps of Curl Maker through each section. I dried my hair beneath a bonnet dryer on medium setting then scrunched out the crunch. I applied my oil blend on top and my hair was shiny, shrunken and moderately soft.

    I'm still not sold on this gel. KCCC keeps my clumps less frizzy. This method was considerably better than the first, but this method was also considerably more expensive because I used a lot of the Almond Jai Butter to create a strong moisture base before applying the gel.

    I purchased this gel from Curlmart on sale. Per ounce, this is less expensive than Kinky-Curly Curling Custard; so, if it was as great as the sponsored reviews claim, then it was worth a try.

    Anyway, the description promises:
    1. {Will not leave hair hard or crunchy.}
    In sections where I applied too much, there was crunch. (minus one star)
    2. {Amazing curl definition, bounce and moisture.}
    In sections where I didn't apply enough, my hair was frizzy. (minus one star)
    3. {Perfect for wash and go styling.}
    Application wasn't very smooth...needs more slip. I ended up with a few blobs that wouldn't blend...had to apply more water. Took forever to dry. (minus one star)
    4. {For extra definition and moisture, use with Curl Love moisture milk or Fresh Curl}
    I refuse to purchase any more CRN products until I finish the ones I have; so, I used my Aloe Whipped Butter Gel as a leave-in. This combo was not moisturizing, at all. Next time, I will try my Almond Jai Butter. Next, next time I will use my beloved KCKT because it seems to work with everything. When this jar is done, I will go back to Kinky-Curly Curling Custard.

    Based on videos I saw, this gel seems to work better on naturally slick hair with curls that are already shiny and defined. I have afro-textured coils. My hair is also mixed texture. It worked well on my fine strands (of course), but my medium-coarse strands were left more frizzy and dry than before I applied the gel. KCCC provides consistent results throughout my head and makes my coils look more uniform.

    I bought this item and 2 cleansers with the pump...and the pumps on all 3 do not work. Ugh. This completely annoys me because I'll either have to find new pumps that fit at the craft store or waste product by squeezing too much out of the bottles.
    Despite this issue, the products smell good and left my hair feeling soft....

    This will be a keeper for me. I like that it elongates my curls. I used Qhemet Biologics, Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee as a leave in and the Curl Maker as my styler and I absolutely love the results.

    I have 3c hair and this product gave me very shiny, very soft curls. My hair had lots of body and the shine and bounce lasted until teh next wash. With the old formula I would have never tried this product due to the cost and bad reviews, but it looks like they really did a great job with the reformulation because I love it. I only had to use a very small amount dividing my hair into 4 sections on each section. Its well worth the money. I think this is gonna replace Jessicurl as my go to gel. I used Curl junkie smoothing lotion as my leave in underneath. Great Combo!

    My review is in regards to the 3rd formulation of Curl Maker that Camille Rose Naturals recently launched. I have never tried any of the previous versions, so I cannot say how they compare to the version that I bought. Normally my hair doesn't do well with products that contain xanthum gum listed within it, especially if it is listed high on the ingredient listing. So, I was sort of sceptical about trying this gel, because it does contain xanthum gum in it. However, because the amount within it isn't alot, I decided to give this gel a try. And, I am so glad that I did, because I absolutely love it!

    First off, the gel is all natural, with no harsh chemical ingredients in it, which my hair truly appreciates. This gel gives my curls lots of definition, added shine, all day frizz control, and most of all it doesn't flake on me. I am not sure how much if any curl elongation it provides, as my hair is at slightly below mid-back length, so my hair is long already. I always get a little bit of shrinkage on the first day, but that's normal and I've grown used to it. Also, this product has a mild, scent to it that is not overpowering at all.

    This is definitely a product that you do not have to be heavy handed with. As, you do not need to use alot in order to get great results from this product. This product provides me with a fabulous wash n go, but I am sure that it can be used to create other natural styles as well. Even though it may be pricey, I feel that it is definitely worth splurging on. This product definitely is on my list of holy grails, and I sincerely hope that Camille Rose Naturals will keep the formula the same the way that it is now, and never change it again.

    3b/low porosity/coarse/dry
    Just what I needed for frizz! Curl Maker is very similar to KCCC (which is an amazing product). Curl Maker has a similar consistency, and it works beautifully for definition. One huge difference in my hair is that as soon as I "scrunch" KCCC I get frizz immediately. Something in Curl Maker keeps the frizz away! KCCC has more shape hold, if I'm willing to battle frizz, but it's easier for me to kill the frizz with Curl Maker and use something else for hold. Curl Maker makes my hair feel SO soft! It has no stickiness or flakes...I can literally run my fingers through my hair when this gel is in it! It reactivates with water, so it's great for several days worth of curl. I wouldn't recommend this on its own for strong definition, but in conjunction with another gel or curl cream it's frizz's worst enemy.

    This product has glycerin even though under Ingredient Attributes it says "Glycerin Free". It worked OK for me. I love the line but I wasn't blown away by this gel. My hair doesn't really like glycerin.

    3c/4a...Smells good like all CRN products. But didn't work for me at all. My hair felt like straw afterwards. I will not purchase this product again. I really wanted to like it but it was a definite waste of $22 for me. I wont chance it on my kids 3a/3b due to how dry my hair felt.

    I purchased this product not liking gels or any gelly type anything in my hair. Ecostyler dries my hair out so I stay away from that stuff but the curl maker works well on top of a leave in and it works even better on top of Camille Rose Hair Milk. I wasn't using this product for curl definition but more for a crunchless light hold. I was able to achieve 5 day hair with this product. I am a wash and go person and prefer to wash every 3 to 4 days. I did have more curl definition which, I didn't think was possible. I did not have any flakes or crunch. My hair was not hard when used alone without anything underneath. Overall, I am glad I purchased this and will repurchase.

    Hair Stats: 3B, waist length, low porosity and normal density.

    I am NOT a fan of using gels in my hair for my curls I hate the crunch, so I found this thinking it would hold my curls but have them fluffly I loved how my curls came out and there was a little bit of crunch but maybe its because I didnt diffuse, so ill reuse this product on a day I'm not rushing

    This product is very nice. I like how it's easy to apply to your hair and it doesn't take long to dry. I've used it on both wet and damp hair. I like the consistency of the gel so that you can gage how much to put on your hair without using too much product, unlike thin gels. Also I like how your hair is not dry the next day. It's pricy but worth it, IMO.

    The curl maker is a good for one day hair but to make it to my HG list I have to be able to get a minimum of 3 day hair.

    I've only used this one time, but it was okay. My hair looked good, nice curl definition, but my hair was a little dry. This is not as moisturizing as some of the other jelly products I've tried, but I think it could work well with a more moisturizing LI. Not quite 4 stars for me because there are other similar products I like better in my hair, but still a good product with great ingredients.
