Umberto Giannini - Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly

I am a big fan of all the Umberto Giannini range especially the one designed for curly or wavy hair as indeed mine is and this Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly has got to be one of my most favoured products of all time and would most certainly be in my desert island survival pack!


I have tried so many other different brands and products that are said to work at creating the perfect curl and keeping it throughout the day but none have even come close to how well this particular product works and keeps working which is why I always have a good stock up in my cupboards as I
fear the day that it would be discontinued.


The Product


I usually stock up on this item when there is some sort of special offer on in Boots and invariably this is a buy 3 for 2 which is where I get 3 of this particular product which then makes quite a saving as the usual price for one of these tubes is a few pence off of £5. This price is fairly competitive as most curling gels or sprays are a little higher than this if indeed you are going for a named product. The shops own range are of course cheaper but as with most things you really get what you are paying for.


You get a good amount of product within the tube and at 200 ml this range gives a lot more for your money than a lot of similar products from different brands. The product claims to be a "Long lasting curl creator for defined, sassy, smooth curls." It states on the back that it is suitable for wavy to curly hair and this gives a sexy tousled smooth curl look. It also states that the product is award winning, which I can well believe.


As with the entire range for curly hair from Umberto Giannini the colourings of the packing for this jelly are pink as is the jelly inside. The packaging is a soft bottle type tube which stands on its flip top lid, thus making the use very easy as a small squeeze allows enough of the product to come out
and with it standing on the lid this allows all the jelly to be used up efficiently.


The jelly inside the tube smells really nice although not overly strong. It doesn't really smell like the shampoo or conditioner in this range which smell lovely but this has it's own unique aroma which reminds me of a hairdressers. There is a sweet floral aroma which is combined with a slight fruitiness which is very nice although doesn't have an aroma at all when the hair has been fully dried off.


General Use


I find this product easy and wonderful to use. I will always use it after I have washed and conditioned my hair having given it a good comb through to make sure it is tangle free. I get a small amount of product in to my hands, about the size of a 50 pence piece and then rub it between both of my palms to get even coverage. Then with my head upside down and shaken out I begin to apply the jelly to the length and ends of my hair but scrunching the hair up in my hands.


As I work thoroughly through my entire head (still upside down) I make sure all sections of my hair have been scrunched and applied with the jelly. Sometimes I may well go back and use another blob if I feel more coverage is needed and this is something that is easy to gage after a few applications.


Once my hair has been coated thinly with the jelly and a good finger combed through I use the diffuser on my hair dryer to dry my hair whilst I am still upside down and scrunching all the time. My hair being rather long does take a good 15 minutes to fully dry and all this time I am still holding my head upside down. For the final few minutes of drying I turn up the right way and give it a final scrunch to create extra volume and curls.


My Overall Opinion


The results when using this Umberto Ginannini Scrunching Jelly are far superior compared to when I either use no product or a different product which is why it is my favourite all time purchase! The hair appears natural and curly and although it can easy be overdone and begin to look crispy and hard once you have used the jelly a few times it becomes second nature to apply the correct amount.


The hold on the jelly is again very good and can last an entire day or a heavy evening out dancing and drinking. Of course every so often it will need a quick head flip upside down and a shake through and can even be revived with a drop of water on the hands and a scrunch through the hair.


This product is so brilliant I can not rate it high enough. I use it so often and am so happy with it that I have now given up on looking for any other product that does this job as there just couldn't be
another that is priced so reasonably and works as well as this does.


I think a top score of 5 stars out of 5 and an exceptionally high recommendation.


I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.


Many thanks for taking the time to read.

I really can't put anything on my hair without it going ridiculously greasy, unfortunately. Good review.

I have really stupid hair which is neither straight nor curly, I might have to get some of this for when I do "curly", thanks for sharing.
