The Frizz of It! Ampro Pro Style Olive Oil Gel Review

Good afternoon, Curlie-Pies!

So there's this product that acted like it had some good home training when I bounced it off my CURLS, that turned out to be a holy grail for my mom's pressed hair! Can you believe that? An all around natural gem!

The good folk over at Ampro sent some Pro Style Olive Oil Gel to rock against my frizzies and I have to say, this one is golden to my coils. It is light weight, absorbs easily into my strands, does not have an overpowering fragrance, and didn't flake on me. My only con would be because this little ditty is so lightweight for my stubborn, spirals I had to reapply a bit more often than I've grown accustomed to. (I already have such a bad case of Hand In Hair disease...I don't need any extra help, lol!). But I love how it doesn't build up & how great my hair looks & feels with it.

But here is the kicker: Mom also tried it to lay down a bit of frizz on her silver, heat treated mane - and her straight strands LOVE IT! Because the formula is neither wet nor goopy, Pro Style Olive Oil did not force her straight strands to revert and even added a beautiful shine to it! She is actually going to buy up some at the store because she doesn't want to run out! One of my natural dancers also used the gel to lay down the kinks in the front of her puff with great results! Seems this is a keeper for our little group.

Now, I also received the Shine N Jam product, which is best for a light hold, probably on curls that do not revert or frizz with ease. For instance, in my day to day activities (work, yadda yadda) I can rock the jam. But if I DANCE with it, my curls will have a great time laughing in it's face!  What can I say? My beloved coils....tough crowd.

So there you have it curlies! This is a winner for me! If you try it, let me know how it works on your mane.

In the meantime, wish me luck. I'm trying the condish on styling this week. Day #1...and I'm scarrrreeeedddd (Mr. Brown voice)!!!

There's 2 sides to every FRIZZ,

I bought it a few days ago and it is thick enough to work with my unruly hair. I love this product and I will be buying again. Oh yeah it also works really well for me when I mix it with a little bit of the original ampro styling gel!

I'm going to try this on my beginning locs. Hopefully it will provide more hold than the regular loc gel. Wish me luck. :). And thanks for the review.
