A bottle of the flora and Curl Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel

If you follow me on Instagram then you have probably seen me raving about the wonders of the Flora & Curl Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel. So in today’s post, I thought it would be best to fully review this product so you guys can know why this product is fire 🔥

  • You get 300ml of the gel
  • The product is plant-powered, cruelty-free, synthetic fragrance-free, phthalate-free and, sulfate and silicone-free

The Pros

The Definition

The main reason why I love this product is because of the definition it has provided my type 4 coils! Not only does this gel clump my coils allowing them to be visible for the whole world to see. It also defines most of my hair strands, leaving me with minimal frizz.

The Longevity

Not only I’m I left with definition, but The Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel also leaves my hair defined for some time! Even after I’ve finger detangled my hair, my coils still shine through instead of them unifying to become an undefined soft puff.

The Smell

There is nothing better than having a good gel that leaves your hair smelling gorgeous. The Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel has a really nice citrusy scent that lingers in my coils for the whole day.

The Packaging

To be honest with you guys one of the initial reasons why I wanted to buy this product was because of the packaging. It’s soo pretty. The way Flora & Curl markets this gel is good because I had not read the comments and I was ready to give it a try. Moreover, I love that it comes with a pump as it makes it easier to access the product.

The Cons

It’s a Bit Pricey

Although there isn’t a set price category that is considered expensive in the natural hair community. From what I’ve observed there is a general consensus that products over £12 tend to be seen as more expensive. In the case of The Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel, it retails for £16 (without delivery charge) and you only get 300 ml. Now that’s not super expensive but at the same time, I’m not always going to have over £16 to re-purchase this gel when it runs out. Plus there are cheaper gels out there that are also great like the Taliah Waajid Curls, Waves & Naturals Curly Curl Gello which retails for £7.49 on Kiyo Beauty.

Final Thoughts

Now although this product is a bit pricey, it still leaves my hair defined for a considerable amount of time. Not to mention it provides my hair with a lovely citrusy scent that lingers. Moreover, the packaging is pretty and practical! Therefore I can definitely see myself re-purchasing this product again as it has for sure become a new fave.
