I am not a person who spends a lot on hair products for my curly hair but this one is worth every penny. This gel has an amazing consistency give the amazing hold and a little amount goes a long way. I have 3b 3C course curly hair which is very dry in general. I use gels very occasionally since it tends to make my hair dry but whenever I use it the results amazing. This gel is not very drying. I usually use a coin size amount on each partition of my hair divided into two parts and apply using praying hands motion followed by scrunching very gently. And after a drawing or diffusing the hold it provides is very very good and my hair looks like it has been professionally styled. This is my third purchase of the arata gel and I love it will definitely purchase it again and again. If you have curly hair like myself and you are confused regarding which gel to buy I would strongly recommend this one since this is Indian Vegan and cruelty free contents flaxseed gel extract and does not make your hair dry. Besides this is one of the cheapest and most effective products available in India for curly hair and I simply love it. Would recommend it a million times over❤
Works for any type of hair. Vegan, cruelty free. One of the best gels at a nominal price.
I have been this product since 2 years now this one is changed packaging blue one. Worked well in my curly hair
This gel is probably the best for wavy hai. It reduces frizz. Give a great crunch and hence definition. Definitely will keep on using it.
My hair is 2b type,fine hair.it doesn't weigh my hair down ,gives a decent hold .love the smell. I use it along with cantu curl activator cream . Works really nice also washes off easily . But the hold doesnt last long
Very unlikely. Leaves the hair dry. The product is too harsh on my hair.
So here's the deal with this gel. It does exactly what it says, and more! Gives great definition and volume to your curls, I've bought this gel 3 times till now. Loved that it was a gel so not too oily and keeps that baby hair tucked away! I almost thought I found the perfect product until this happened: terrible product fallout. Since this was a gel based product, after applying the gel, the water dries out and remaining product almost solidified, and so whenever I would even remove my hair band, touch my hair, fix my hair, basically do anything that moves my hair, small white dandruff like particles would keep falling and in huge amounts. I got scared thinking maybe it's dandruff and used anti dandruff shampoo but it didn't help. This was extremely embarrassing because sometimes it would just fall onto my laptop and made everything around me look hideous. Black t shirts and jeans were out of the question because you could see so much of the fallout and clearly. It went to the point where I would try so hard not to touch my hair anywhere except when I'm alone in my room. The fallout would never stop! One day I asked my sister about this issue and she said it could be product fallout, so try not to use the gel for a week. I did that, and voila! The fallout was completely gone. My scalp was fine and no dandruff. So here's my review: it does the job very effectively, but becomes utterly useless because you'll keep generating fallout and you can never confidently fix your hair without expecting some serious white dandruff like particles falling. Do not go for this product, it's absolutely useless unless you are okay with dandruff in your hair forever. Instead I would recommend the hair cream by Arata which is amazing, and no fallout for that. Way better than this gel.
Amazing for my 2b-2c curls and lightweight for everyday use.
A little is all u need for that awesome definition and moisture. Frizz free for atleast 2 days if u protect it well while drying. I usually sleep in my satin bonnet while my hair is drying n it gives me the best results than air drying it open. Much more manageable 2nd and 3rd days without the need to refresh except maybe a spritz of water here n there and this gel (very very little amount) to keep it going for another day.
Maintains my curls for long time. Good moisture and Definition.
Love love love this gel!! Holds my curls very well
This is the first ever gel I tried during my CGM method. Doesn't offer a great hold. The hold extends to Day 1 and slightly to Day 2. But not beyond that. May not repurchase this.
