I did not like this at first but I gave it another shot and I like this version of the hair gel better than the old version. It doesn't leave any residue behind and I love how pure it is because I am extremely hyper sensitive in my old age. I still have a full bottle of the old version and I am not going to use it.
I was very upset at first being a customer for more than 25 years, but once I called and spoke with Dr. Easterling, he explained that it's the same base formula it always with some very nice enhancements like the herbal blend, Horse Chestnut encourages healthy circulation, Witch Hazel acts as a natural astringent for optimal scalp health, Willowherb soothes and calms, Green Tea provides antioxidant protection, and Horsetail Extract strengthens hair strands.
I was even more impressed to hear about Xylityl Sesquicaprylate this is a sugar-derived preservative that protects the integrity of this product without the use of parabens or formaldehyde releasers. I personally like having a healthy option for a natural preservative in the product. This particular preservative is the only one approved globally for Whole Foods.
Thanks Real Purity and Dr. Rich for continually innovating and finding/creating healthier options for those of us that are very sensitive!!
I've tried many natural organic brands and this is the first styling gel that has NO ODOR, leaves no residue and really adds bounce and fullness after blow drying.
I like how incredibly pure this hair gel is. It's fantastic that it contains no plastics, or other chemicals of any kind. It is very rare to find such a hair product, even at my health food store. I was disturbed by an odor that smelled like alcohol when I first unsealed the tube, since it is not supposed to contain any sort of alcohol, natural or otherwise. I find that the product gives a moderate to good amount of body, though, even on my very thick and otherwise demanding hair, and it doesn't clump or leave "crunchy" areas as much as other products might. It is truly a "soft" volumizer, which is pretty amazing.
I don't get much chance to use it, since I mostly use texture pastes or hairsprays on my hair, but it does it's job well, and I congratulate it heartily. Thank you, Real Purity! :) :)
This is what I've been searching for for *years.* No scent, no residue or build-up on my hair, no toxic chemicals. I have naturally curly hair that frizzes, and this keeps it smooth without making it heavy, sticky, or flaky.
I wish you'd make it in a bigger size, Real Purity, because I will be using a lot of it.
As an MCS sufferer it is not easy to find
friendly products that you can trust will not make you ill and that work. My naturally curly hair and I thank you for this product. My hair looks great. This product never leaves your hair sticky or stiff. My only request is that it came in a larger size. I have a lot of hair and 4oz does not go very far. Thanks Real Purity for making such quality products!
I have curly hair and love that this gel does not give me the crunchy look that most gels do. If I have a really dry hair day I will add some of my conditioner to the gel too.
I had/have severe chemical injury (building fire and decades of renovation chemicals which left me at an end stage)... Much improved over decades of holistic therapies but I needed to find a true non toxic product for roommate (remember some chemicals have no odor but are toxic). (background in biochemstry)
Took much research to find this one - sampled it and it's perfect in all ways!
Smooths my frizzy hair!
I'm sensitive to ingredients in every other hair gel and serum that I've tried. I'm not sensitive to this styling gel at all! It smooths my frizzy hair, and seems to make my hair look healthier.
Love the natural ingredients and feels good on my hair... I have frizzy wavy hair, I can use it on wet hair before I dry it or I can use it on my dry hair to control the friz.
Nothing wrong with it, just not a fan.
I was really excited for this product, but it just doesn't work for my hair. I have very curly, unruly hair. This gel makes my hair very flat on top, yet it doesn't do anything to define or help my curls on the bottom. Basically, it turns me into a triangle head. I've tried using hardly any, to using a little extra on just the ends, but it's just a no-go for my hair.
I'm not going to review it poorly just because it doesn't work for me, because the product itself is still good. I wanted it to work so badly :(
