Both products have Custard in the title, so naturally I thought to compare these gel’s. They also have glycerin as the second ingredient, so I thought comparing the two would be fair. I washed my hair as usual, and ended with a bentonite clay treatment, then I applied Kinky Curly Knot Today as my leave-in and proceeded to style with the custards.
The Miss Jessie’s Coily Custard side clearly has a bit more frizz than the other side; however, my coils are well defined. I felt no gel cast and my hair was very moisturized once dry. Unfortunately, it took TWO DAYS for my hair to dry (can we say mega amounts of glycerin) and the strong clean smell became decidedly annoying. I was very happy that once dry, I still didn’t experience flakes. This gel works with many leave-in’s without resulting in flakes or a film over the hair.
The Moptop Curly Hair Custard left every coil, wave and curl on my head well defined. My hair was not weighed down, but there was a light gel cast once dry. I was happy my hair dried by the end of the day, but I did experience a visible white film in the front, but that would probably not be so if I used the Moptop leave-in (thus I can’t count that as a con). The coils were moisturized and there really wasn’t much frizz.
Is my preference obvious? I really like the Moptop Curly Hair Custard better. I do think that both gel’s are great for defining wash and go’s, but I just like what I like. Check out the video for a look at application and more Now that you’ve seen a comparison, which result do you like better?
