As promised, today I am reviewing the Strand Strengthening Styling Gelee, one of the products sent to me by ORS. You can find my review on the Edge Control here, if you missed it. This new line of styling products focuses on moisture and shine while keeping the hair in place. These products are new and they are not widely available to the public yet. I will add more information as it becomes available to me. I have used the styling Gelee on both mine and my daughter's hair so far. Keep reading to find out what I think.
How ORS describes the product
Ultra firm hold with extra conditioning. Moringa Oil helps hair stay strong during rigorous styling No crunch, No flaking. No sodium hydroxide. No alcohol.
ORS Strand Strengthening Styling Gelee looks like a gel, feels like a gel, but works on the hair like a custard. It provides the hold without making the hair feel sticky or heavy. Don't count on it to give your curls great definition. That did not happen for me. This product smells incredibly good and it is not messy. I love the packaging. I know the product already contains olive oil, but after I washed my daughter's hair on Saturday, while the hair was still damp, I added some extra virgin olive oil to the hair before applying the product to it, and combed it with a wide tooth comb. I did a two-strand twist style on her hair and undid the twists on Tuesday. Her twist-out will probably last 3 days because today is Wednesday, and I am starting to see the hair puffing out.
The bottom line
ORS Strand Strengthening Styling Gelee worked as promised on both mine and my daughter's hair. I find it to be very moisturizing, although I did not notice a great amount of shine. The flakes were more noticeable on my hair than they were on my daughter's. I guess it depends on the hair's porosity level. My daughter has high to medium porosity hair. And there was absolutely no crunch! The best thing about this product is that I can just spray the hair with water and re-twist it until it is time to wash my daughter's hair again. I don't have to worry about her ends breaking off. This product is definitely a winner in my book.
