The Batia & Aleeza Bio Herbal Mineral Gel actually opens the hair cuticle allowing the product to soak into each hair strand and revitalize the bonds between the cell. The product enhances naturally curly, wavy or kinky textured hair by using all-natural ingredients to penetrate the hair shaft and strengthen the molecular bond.
Have I tried the gel on my own naturally wavy hair which has a lot of curl underneath? Yes, and I absolutely love it! My waves are incredibly shiny. I thought it was just my imagination, but my guy mentioned how much shinier my hair looked.

When I received other compliments on my hair I knew it was due to the Batia & Aleeza since this is the only product I used.
Because the product appeared at first to be so watery, I applied a lot of gel the first time I used it. Yes, it's very very thin and watery, but I didn't need any other products although I tried it with and without leave-in conditioner. The gel, because it is so watery, is very easy to distribute.
The gel has a wonderful aroma. It also provided very consistent results. If you wish, you can do as I did and you can experiment with using your favorite leave-in conditioner and then slathering on the Batia and Aleeza bio-gel on top of that layer.
You may wish to scrunch the hair a tiny bit. In the end you will have awesome wave and curl formation (spirals), without frizz.

Depending on the texture of your hair (wavy, curly, kinky) you may have to experiment to figure out exactly how much of the gel to use for your hair type and texture.
You may need to use quite a bit of the gel which is very thin, to get the results you desire but it worth the experimentation.
This gel tends to work best for curlies when they don't diffuse their hair or keep running fingers through it. Saturate hair with gel, scrunch a bit from the bottom, flip it a couple of times and let it air dry.
Optional Use Of Gel - Apply While Soaking Wet
Apply the gel while still in the shower and hair is soaking wet. It should be noted the gel is the consistency of water and may take some getting used to.
Use your fingers to work it through your hair rather than using a wide toothed comb or brush.
As the gel dries it may have some crunch, but most are fine with the gel related crunch.
Many claim the gel will create more consistent curl formation rather than random straight pieces.
Easy To Distribute Through Curls And Waves
The Batia & Aleeza gel is much easier to distribute evenly through curls than other similar products. It offers much more consistency. Why? Because Batia & Aleeza gel is of a thinner nature that competitive products. Batia & Aleeza's gel doesn't cause product build-up.
This gel is more than just for enhancing curls. It doesn't necessarily weigh down curls, but it keeps them from being too full and frizzy. It does have crunch though, if you use too much. But I just scrunch it out if I do that. The end result for me has been sleek, shiny curls.
If you used the Batia & Aleeza and then towel dried after, it would have a much softer effect.

May Not Work For All Curly, Wavy Or Kinky Patterns
Like every hair product on the market for all types, textures, lengths and conditions of hair, it is important to note that not all products work for everyone. While it works for many with curls, waves and kinks, it may not work as well for others.
