White Sands Gel-Us

Gel-Us by White Sands is a gel that provides shine and hydration while improving the texture of your hair and adding volume to it.  I tested it out for a few weeks and here is what I found.

What Worked:  My fine hair does not hold volume as well as I would like.  Any product that promises it I want to try out instantly.  I used Gel-Us right after my shower and styled my hair as normal.  I have medium length hair and used a dime-sized amount.  As my hair dried I immediately noticed how much thicker the texture was while not being sticky or hard to run my fingers through.  It stayed that way all day.  My style held longer and I had no frizz too. I actually laughed out loud with glee when I realized this half-way through the day.  I was incredibly happy.  My hair had more shine each time I used Gel-Us and it washed out easily.  There was no heavy scent either. Always a plus!

What Didn’t Work:  I can’t use this product all the time because after a few days of use it just doesn’t create the volume I want or like.  If I use it a few times a week it works but that is it.  My hair remains shinier each time I use it regardless of how many times I use it and it still eliminates frizz.

I’m not in love with the name.  Why do we have to create beauty and hair care products that sound catty? It doesn’t make me want to buy the product. I get the play on words but I become annoyed when I see names like this for products.

I would purchase White Sands Gel-Us again.  It’s a 7.5 ounce bottle that will last so the $15 price tag doesn’t hurt so much.  I think it works well and when I use it a few times a week it really performs.  On a different hair type and texture it probably works even better.

Gel-Us allows 100% of the entire product to work synergistically in styling and conditioning to provide hydration and shine unlike any gel out there. With hair now in a perfect moisture balance after using Gel-Us, each cuticle layer is closed to eliminate frizz, improve texture, repel moisture and provide volume.
