I was looking to mix up my routine and try a new product but the curl gloss was a big miss for me. I have a naturally wavy curl but this product didn’t help enhance or define and the hold was gone resulting in frizz after a few hours. I tried using more product and ended up with crunchy hair. I love the Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo but this product isn’t for me.
2.0 out of 5 starsNot made for thinner hair, maybe for thicker, longer hair

The product itself may work fantastic for others, and I have a feeling this is going to come down to hair type. I personally have rather thin hair, and my girls do too. Unfortunately due to this, the product weighed my hair down horribly and I was unable to really enjoy it. It definitely does add a gloss to the hair, and has a hold to it. The smell is alright, nothing way too overpowering, and your average "salon" scent. It is pricey, which is average for this brand. For me it is a miss, but again that it due to the type of hair that I have, and may have nothing to do with the actual product itself.
I have naturally curly hair, but because it is long my curls tend of get looser as the day goes on. I was hoping that this curl gloss gel would help them hold their shape all day, but unfortunately it just isn't up the to the task. I followed the directions on the bottle, and tried varying amounts over several days, but the gel either stopped holding my curls after about an hour or, if I used a lot, turned my hair into a crunchy mess.
This curl gel may work okay if you have shorter hair or tighter curls that can keep their shape well on their own. My loose spiral curls are just too much for it. I'll stick with my favourite drug store brand that does an awesome job at a better price.
If you're buying this you're buying it for the name only. I have thick curly hair and this might be great for wavy hair. Or hair more easily managed. But I had to use quite a bit of product. More than I typically do with other brands. And it did not provide hold or gloss, I had a head of frizz and no defined curls. This is a very expensive product and not at all worth any of it. Save your money and your time. It does smell nice which is the only reason I gave 2 stars.
