20 Best Silicone-Free Styling Gels For Natural Hair

20 Best Silicone Free Styling Gels For Natural Hair 1

I’m one of the many who have kind of stepped away from silicones since going natural. While they are great for many reasons (like fighting frizz, smoothing out your hair and shine) they tend to just sit on the hair and create massive build-up.

I also prefer them in serums as opposed to other products I use like styling gel. I need my styling gel to work but not to build-up. I wet my hair almost daily so when it’s time to wash out the gel I don’t want silicone residue. So for my styling gel I go silicone-free and find great success not using it.

Styling gels are necessary for many naturals it can fight the frizz, ward of humidity and keep the curls defined. If you don’t want silicones in your gel for whatever reason here are the 20 most popular and for good reason!

Kinky curly custard

Shea moisture is not the business for curl gel. Not at all

Maria Parham

I get great results when I mix the Shea Moisture Souffle gel with the smoothie. Kinky Kurly gives good hold and definition but a little too much crunch.

I love the Shea Moisture Souffle! I had to learn not to use it like a regular gel though. If it leaves my hair feeling even slightly sticky, I know I’ve used too much of the product. I can literally use a nickel sized amount of product for my whole entire head. It gives nice hold, amazing moisture, and incredible shine, but only if used properly (sparingly). I also find it works really well when combined with creamy products, like the Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk, or even the rinse out conditioner. I’ve also used it with Giovani Direct Leave in and Curls Creme Brulee with great results. Just have to be extremely light handed with it.
