Pro tips: To avoid unnecessary flaking, for best result:
- Apply to freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. If you use a lot of product or have buildup, use a clarifying or detox shampoo.
- Always apply Nature’s Little Secret Flaxseed Banana Leave In Conditioner or Avocado Moisture Cream before applying the Custard.
- Apply the Custard to wet (not damp) hair and work in small sections.
- Work the Custard in your hair well ( especially if you are low porosity) making sure it penetrates your hair.
- Don't use too much product, just enough to saturate your sections.
- Try not to manipulate your hair during the drying process.
- Use Nature's Little Secret Herbal hair & Scalp Oil to gently break any custard cast you may experience

Good, but not great
This custard has amazing slip and does define the hair well, I would recommend it for hair types 2-3, however as a type 4 natural I generally prefer a thicker consistency as experience has taught me that this will provide a longer-lasting hold. This custard can flake if you're heavy handed, so heed the advice of NLS to combat this. I recommend Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic as a plant-based protein-free gel for type 4 naturals.
Hello There, Thanks for your review. We are sorry to learn the Nature's Little Secret Flaxseed Gel didn't quite do it for you. As mentioned in the product description, it is not ideal for Type 4 hair. Though you can still use it (for twists-outs and braids), the hold will be light. If you are looking for a thicker consistency gel with medium or strong hold, check out Alikay Hold It Styling Gel, Kinky-Curly Custard Gel, Ecoslay Jello Shot Gel and Inahsi Natural Avocado Custard Gel. Hope one of them meet you needs. Have a great evening!
