Design Essentials Natural Defining Hair Crème Gel for Hold, Definition and Shine-Almond & Avocado Collection, 16oz.

Amazon Customer

I have thick 4a-4c hair and this is my good to twisting, braid-out, and styling product. It’s thick enough to hold my styles without a crunch or flakes. I’ve tried a lot of products and I keep coming back to Design Essentials cream hold product! This jar lasts me about 6 months with consistent use (weekly twist styles) and I use a lot of product to make sure every strand is coated.Everyone’s hair and style preference is different but I like how this product styles, holds, and protects my hair.


It’s a good product. I love the way my hair looks and feels. It smells so good too


I wouldn’t say it’s a great moisturizer, I used their lotion for that! But if you use to style your hair it’s great for that! It’s crazy it is like a very light weight gel it holds my 3 year old hair in place and mine when I do 2 French braids around the house. I love it!

I love the product, it work fine for me, will be ordering it in the future I have no problem with it! I think it is a great product


This product is great! I used it on my type 4B hair to do a wash and go. After washing and deep conditioning, I applied the design essentials daily moisturizing lotion which the product tells you to do. I then applied the product to my hair in sections. I did have to finger separate some of my coils to aid the defining process. After completing my whole head as the product tells you to do I sat under a hooded dryer for about 40 to 45 minutes to set the style. I am on day three and my hair is still retaining its moisture and the definition is still there. I am very pleased with the results of this product and I highly recommend giving it a try! I will definitely be purchasing this product again!


I have Z pattern curls and a mixture of curl patterns. This is my go to product for getting a great texture to my fro styles. It does not work well will other product lines however. But I love it despite that I have to be careful what other products I may use that week.


Worth it


By far the best curl product, and I've tried several over the years. I almost hate that it works so well, because it's sooo expensive and it only lasts me a month, if that. I have medium to long length hair. It really defines my curls, and does not give it that crunchy greasy weighed down look, instead curls are more of a soft defined curl look.For best results use with a smoothing conditioner such as Pureology Smooth Perfection or with Mircale 10 Silk leave-in spray. When you use this creme, section the hair in mid-size sections and work from roots to end. Make sure your hair is wet (for best results). And if you want to expand the product to spread it out a bit (so that it will last), then use with a bit of cold water. This helps a bit.In any case, that's my "two-cents" on how to best use it. 😀

Great product! It works wonders on thick coarse hair, makes it very easy tocomb through. Also, a great smell and that don’t leave your hands greedy. I will buy this again, I only use design essential products on me and my daughter’s hair. 😍

I like this product. Really defines and moisurizes my curls. I can go 3 days without reapplying. My curls snap back in the morning with spraying a little water on them. It isn't greasy, so with my long hair, I can sit back on the couch without making a greasy mess.
