KISS MY FACE UPPER MANAGEMENT GEL...



Hey there fabulous naturals!

I just received my bottle of kiss my face upper management gel in the mail today.  I've been looking for a second gel with a lower price than my curly magic.  In the event that a time arises that curly magic may not be in my budget, I don't know if you ladies know but it is a bit pricey :(. http://www.unclefunkysdaughter.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=192

After hearing a few good reviews on this gel in which you can find here http://janeensjourneyback.blogspot.com/2010/10/my-journey-to-find-perfect-gel-is-over.html  and here  http://www.youtube.com/user/denimpixie#p/u/28/HgCo5uxdX18   I decided to check this gel out for myself I then went on over to i herb. com to price the kiss my face gel in which you can find here http://www.iherb.com/Kiss-My-Face-OHC-Upper-Management-Styling-Gel-Grapefruit-8-fl-oz-236-ml/8272?at=0

I found it to be much cheaper than my fave curly magic. Kiss my face gel is $6.44 and curly magic is $25.00 , see what I'm saying.    Then I checked out the ingredients and found that they aren't that bad at all:

INGREDIENTS:

Certified Organic Aqua of Urtica dioica, Calendula officinalis & Anthemis nobilis, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate (Amino Acid derived) , Faex, Panthenol, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus grandis.

Here is what is great about this product.  It clearly states on the bottle that it's pH balanced and it is ( you guys know I what!?!...yes, that right gave it an ole pH test of my own, lol) and true indeed it came back a lovely pH of 5.  Which is in fact lower in pH than curly magic which tested at 6.  Kiss my face is also Organic.  It has no sls, no parabens, no artificial color or fragrance.  And it states no build up.  Sounds great right!

It has a pleasant light smell, and the consistency is pretty thick.  Now, this is not at all a full review.  But , you ladies know I had to try some out on a portion of my hair.  Based off of the little I used so far so good.  The first thing I noticed is that it seemed to elongate my curls, which means I didn't notice much shrinkage.  It states it has a medium hold, and it does.  And, there is not a feel of the crunches in my hair.  My hair actually feels pretty darn good.  But, remember I performed this quick test on a small section of my hair.  So, a full review shall come in a few weeks, god willing.  So stay tuned.

My plan is as follows to alternate between cream based gels and gel...gels.  I am doing a bit of a experiment with my hair trying to narrow down which of the two types are currently working best on my hair.

So , ladies if your interested go on over and check it out.  I will post the link once again below.  And for first time buyers over at iherb.com feel free to use my $5.00 off code NAB882.

it was nice but not nice enough for a repurchase, for the amount that i used on one section i would have to buy more bottles per month than one jar of kinky curly gel, so on a yearly basis i would shell out more for the KISS. It has a nice smell and it plays well with others I can say.

Let me know how you like it

@shawnystheone...really, Sorry to hear that. As I was saying earlier I have yet to apply it all ovwer. Hopefully, it will last . But, you did however bring up a great point that I really forgot about. The curly magic although a bit more in price last me forever! I mean a looooong time, great point.

Thanks for sharing how well it plays w/ others thats always a plus.

I will be sure to give you ladies an update and final review in a few weeks. Thanks a bunch shawny for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Take care.
