Umberto Giannini / Curl Friends Scrunching Jelly!





A lot of you may not know this but I have naturally very curly hair. It wasn't until I reached my late teens that I started to wear it naturally not only because super straight hair was all the rage in those days, I was not confident at all to wear it like this. It sounds so silly to think I would never dare wear my hair how it naturally looks but I think we can all think of things we wish we could change about our younger selves.

Curly hair is hard to maintain, I think you have to really take care of the ends and we also don't was the 'Frizzy' curly look going on as that's really not cute. Over the years I have mainly been using different mosses to maintain the frizz and keep it looking fresh however, as I have told you before I can not stand the feel of product in my hair. I Received this at Christmas time of someone and it was a set of Umberto Giannini which had products in especially for curly hair.

I had never heard of this brand before so I tried it out straight away, and was really impressed. The set was from the Curl Friends range and also contained the shampoo and conditioner which were really lovely. The main product I have fell in love with and am still using is the Create A Curl Scrunching Jelly. This is suitable for anyone who has any type of natural curl to their hair. It De-frizzes, defines the curls and makes your hair look really glossy.

When I read the back of the packaging after using it I could not believe that it actually ticked the boxes and did everything it said it would. After washing my hair I use a towel to soak up any excess water, I then comb through my hair with a wide tooth comb (which I also have from this brand). Finally I turn my head upside down and scrunch this into the hair like you would with a moose, then leave to dry. I find my hair is not frizzy at all and my curls are definitely more defined. I don't have to touch my hair at all with any tools to get the look I want. The picture of my hair above have not been touched and I have only used this one product after shampooing. My curls last a really one time and I have also brush through them with the comb to freshen them and it doesn't damage the curls at all. 

The main thing I also love about this product is that you can not feel it at all. Its doesn't make your hair feel greasy or irritated, its not sticky and doesn't make you hair feel hard like a moose would. I will definitely continue to use this product as it works great with my hair and will try other products in this and the other ranges too.

  9. I've got naturally curly hair and it's so hard to find products that tame the frizz. I think most products give you all the beauty bullshit in the packaging but when you apply them they either look greecy or they give that dry crunch sound. This sounds really good though I think I might have to give it a try, am really wanting to get more into hair care at the minute x
