Medium hold- Forms a cast. For all hair types. Performs best in temperate climates.
Full Size: 8.5oz / 250 ml - Sample Size: 2.7oz / 80 ml
Botanical Gel is perfect for those needing a soft-to-medium hold in their styles. It will form a cast that can be left in or scrunched out.
Botanical Gel will aid in definition and offers a lot of slip, with soft-to-medium hold. It even helps to detangle upon application.
It contains botanicals such as aloe, marshmallow root, slippery elm, horsetail, and more. We included film-formers that don’t cause buildup to help you maintain sculpted curls.
For hold, we added a naturally-derived, peg-free alternative to traditional carbomers/polymers that are typically products of the fossil fuel industry. Most gels, mousses, or holding products are petroleum-based, unless otherwise stated. This is something to be aware of because the fossil-fuel industry wreaks havoc on the environment. There are more natural, renewable options available, and here at Consciously Curly Co, we believe all companies should move away from unsustainable and unethical practices, and toward a greener future.
Botanical Gel is appropriate for Wavy to Coily Hair Types - performs best on low-to-medium porosity hair.
It is appropriate for all climates, but performs best in temperate climates with dew points from 35F-55F.
Temperate climates are moderate weather areas- not too humid, or too dry. Use in areas with dew points (not the same as temperature) averaging from 35-55F. To determine if this dew point is applicable to you, simply look up the average dew point of the season for the city you are in.

How to use for the climate you're in:
Temperate - Leave in or scrunch out cast based off of your preference. For softest curls, scrunch out the cast. Follow with an oil if preferred.
Humid - Leave the cast in for best results and follow with antihumidity mousse or a sealing oil using the prayer-hand technique. Dry hair completely with a diffuser before entering humid air.
