"Good product but pricey! "
. Saturday, September 3, 2016 05:38:16 PM
Product Review: I love this product minus the amount of time it takes the hair to dry. I will literally have wet hair all day or I'll have to blow dry it for 10-15 minutes to look presentable. Also, is it just me, or did the price randomly go up significantly? I don't remember paying more than 25 dollars in the past for this especially without shipping not even included. I'm a broke post grad student who really can't afford to drop this type of money, but I will because it is the only thing that works the best for my hair given my allergies to other products. I wish there was some sort of discount system. Anyways, I always get compliments on my hair after using this product. Could you consider a price drop for us brokies?

Product Review: The first time I used this I was so heavy handed & my hair STILL turned out nice. My hair loves this stuff & most of all it's not as sticky as KCCC! This is my new staple gel. I use it on soaking wet hair & I use warm water spritz because I have low porosity. My tip to other low porosity folks out there is to use just a bit on soaking wet sections, shingle & then wear a plastic cap for a bit to allow your cuticles to lift & allow the product to penetrate. Use a warm set on blow dryer if you want a little more heat. Do a little shake n go. My hair air dried beautifully. Curl Magic is the bomb & with a little practice you too can see & feel the greatness of this product! Eta: the movement you get is amazing.

Product Review: I'm new to UFD's products and let me say that I'm extremely impressed! After using many natural hair gels that my hair just could not get with resulting in flaking, dryness, lack of moisture and shine, I discover the Curly Magic which is absolutely a gem. Not only does it define my hair, it maintains styles for days at a time without drying it out. I've even attempted a SUCCESSFUL wash and go on my hair using this product, something that I didn't think was possible for my hair texture, but the Curly Magic has crushed that idea. My hair confidence has been raised many notches. Please maintain this formula and you have a customer for life!

Product Review: I have searched high and low for a product that brings out my Type 4 curl pattern and I must say that I am in awe. I can finally achieve a wash-n-go. This gel leaves my curls super defined and moisturized. Not to mention this is day 3 for me and my hair still looks great. THANK YOU UNCLE FUNKY'S!!!!

Product Review: Thank you for returning to the original formula. The first time I tried this was when the formula changed and I was not impressed. I was reluctant to try it when the formula changed back but I am so glad I did! It is my new Holy Grail! I finally found something that will hold my curl pattern and I still have movement in my hair when it dries (its the little things that matter). Thank you - for this product; I can't believe, each day my still looks good without having to re-wash my hair.

Product Review: I have bleached "natural" hair and after trying sooooo many products on this ole head of mine Curly Magic was THE ANSWER!!!!! The first day I tried it I was on my way to a birthday party and I couldn't get in the door with out being stopped and asked what I had done to my hair!!! :) Thanks for this answer to my curly prayer.
"This Gel Rocks!!!"
. Saturday, March 26, 2016 08:53:22 PM
Product Review: I got a sample of Curly Magic in my Essence Beauty Box this month. Long story short, I went online and purchased a full sized bottle of it from Target (online). It's worth every penny. I've tried sooooooo many different gels ranging from cheap to expensive. I do the curly girl method and this product is the finishing touch that I need for perfect, defined curls that last. I have fine 3b/3c curls. I love this stuff!
"Love this product!"
. Thursday, March 10, 2016 06:52:52 PM
Product Review: I have tried sooooo many products since starting the CG method almost a year ago. Most were just average which left me continually buying more and more products to try. I was hesitant to try to Curly Magic because the product info on this site recommends it for types 3 and 4 hair, and says it elongates curls. As a type 2c (non-ethnic hair) who is always looking for MORE shrinkage with my curls, I didn't know if this would be for me. So glad I tried it though! Great shine, definition, frizz control, and bounce. My first bottle is almost empty and I just reordered 2 more! This is the first of the dozens of hair products I've tried in the last year that I've actually reordered. The rest are sitting only half-used. Thanks for a great product!
. Wednesday, February 10, 2016 05:52:23 PM
Product Review: Finding this product after starting my new natural journey last year was awesome! I used it majority of the year and it worked very well for my hair texture. I purchased recently again and was pretty bummed that you guys resulted back to the old formula because it doesn't do anything for my hair! The new and improved formula was perfect for my hair! Now I have to find something else:(

Product Review: So glad the original forumula is back!!!!! After the "new and improved" version, I was forced to find a new product. My hair just wasn't the same. After failing to replace CM, I went back...and bang...pop.... my hair was back....bc the original was back. Love this product line.
"Fantastic Gel"
. Tuesday, May 19, 2015 12:54:44 PM
Product Review: I have 4a/4b, medium density, lo-po hair. My signature style is a wash and go, so the gel is one of the most important things in creating popping curls. I have always used, and had great results with the Eco styler gel, but I had heard so many great things about this gel, I decided to try it. OMG this gel right here deserves it's funky name. Not only did I get the same sheen and curl popping that I normally get with the Eco styler, but also my hair dry.....MOVES. That's right folks, I actually can turn my head and my hair turns with me!!! This gel reminds me greatly of homemade flaxseed gel, just pumped up on amazingness. This will definitely be a staple for me. Goodbye Eco Styler, CRN Curl Maker, Shea Moisture sticky excuse for a gel and hello UFD!!! Thank you, thank you for bringing back the original formula!!

Product Review: I have tried so many different types of styling gels for my curls, and Curly Magic truly beats them all. This product has a jelly type consistency to it, is easy to distribute throughout the hair, provides great curl definition, shine, and all day frizz control and hold. It works well in all seasons, and it has a light, lemony natural fragrance to it too. This product is a definite must try for all of you curly gals and guys out there!

Product Review: I live outside the U.S. where it is almost impossible to find a useable product for black natural hair that has rigorous studies/reviews. Please solve the problem of 'lack of product' so that others can have happier hair without snapping off their hair with other products that are not as 'kind'. Thank you :-)

I use it every other week along with a moisturizer. I still have about 3/4 of the bottle left. Does this product have an expiration date?

"My Staple!"
. Monday, February 24, 2014 04:59:11 AM
Product Review: I've been natural for two and half years now, and I've tried LOTS of products. My hair is super thick, and I probably have three different textures (3C with some 4s at the crown). This product does exactly what I need it to do - defines my curls and keeps the frizz at bay. And, it doesn't take a lot - three to four pumps for me. I've found that it works with just about any leave in, though I'm partial to Giovanni. I also love the way Curly Magic smells - very light and fresh.

Product Review: I napped on this gel for a good while and am glad I woke up! This is the only gel that gives my fine-med density 3C/4A tiny curls excellent definition, shine and moisture. I pair it with a bit of SuperCurl and a sealer and I can get about 4 day hair...maybe 5 or 6 if I pull it into a puff. Love my Curly Magic and plan to keep it as my only styler!

A loving suggestion: I KNOW there's a lot going on with all your responsibilities.

Product Review: This is amazing! It has very similar ingredients to Kinky Curly but the combo, order, and some ingredients are off but i tell you this is WAY better! It works with any leave in and has slip!!!! I love it and has become my only STAPLE GEL! I order 2 a year on black friday!

Product Review: I've been natural for years and have used LOTS of products to activate my curls. With 4B hair, I'm prone to frizz and dryness. After a deep condition over the weekend, I can use Curly Magic to set my curls and literally go the entire week without applying little to no product, because the Curly Magic is reactivated every time I spritz my hair with water. I LOVE this product!!!

Product Review: So, you only post reviews that are 4 stars or above? Seems a little unfair and lopsided to not have a rating system that accurately reflects the level of satisfaction per individual.We as consumers recognize that EVERY person is not going to love a particular product, but the majority of satisfied ratings will tip the scale. What I don't care for is companies that have deceptive practices such as the rating system you are using to unfairly market your product. This was my first time using any of your products. I posted a review yesterday that was less than 4 stars. Didn't say I hated it, but was truthful. As a result of your non-post, I will not purchase anymore of your products. Your deceptiveness speaks volumes about your company. If you have enough satisfied clients, there is no need to be deceptive.

Response from Uncle Funky's Daughter:
We post all legitimate reviews, including both of yours. However, as our system gets mountains of spam reviews (think of all the junk in your browser sidebar, times 1,000), it takes a little time to filter through them. We are sorry that your review was not posted immediately. Thank you for your thoughtful comments on Curly Magic, and we hope you have found something that works for you.

Product Review: The Curly Magic made me look like Shirley Temple. Way too many tiny curles with my wash n go. Not sure what went wrong. I shingle on soaking hair and wasn't impressed. May put this back in the rotation again in a couple of months. Maybe not. Rocking a twist out with it today. Will give that a week before I decide.

. Wednesday, August 14, 2013 06:09:27 PM
Product Review: My hair can get frizzy even though I have defined curls. I only do wash and go hair styles so I use this for wash and go on my hair. I wanted to see if it would tame my frizz and it did. I had some crunch but that's because I used too much. I thought I needed to use a lot because I have a lot of hair. I fixed the crunch issue by running some water through my hair to dilute the product. My curls are frizz free and look really great. I like it so much I ordered another bottle.

Product Review: I've spent several weeks searching for a natural non-toxic alternative to my Devacurl B'Leavin for a wash and go. This works great for me--curls stay defined and clumped together when fully dry, great ingredient list, excellent product.
. Wednesday, July 3, 2013 03:10:54 PM
Product Review: I can't say enough about this product. I've been experimenting with gels of all sorts. From cheap to expensive. I may acheive the curl definition, but my hair was always crunchy and hard. Along came Curly Magic. This stuff is magical!! The slip is amazing. Plus, I don't have to divide my hair into small sections for even distribution, and my hair is thick!! Application was simple and I only used a small amount to acheive the look that I wanted. I'm on day 3 of a wash and go.This product only works if your hair curls up naturally when it's wet. It helps to maintain the clumping and natural curl definition that you already have. I highly recommend if you crave maximum definition and touchable softness to your hair!

Product Review: Thank you for making a product that works on my 4a (soft, cottony dense) hair! I have spent hundreds of dollars the past 17 years trying various products, and not one of them did what Curly Magic does for my (ball point pin) coils, and a little goes a long way! I used to two strand twist my hair, but now I only wash and go w/ a little Curly Magic and leave-in conditioner! I often receive compliments on my hair, and I tell them about UFD! I second a previous reviewer, Please don't change the formula" my hair loves this product!

. Thursday, May 9, 2013 06:03:04 PM
Product Review: I've been trying to perfect my Wash-N-Go's since going natural 2 1/2 years ago. Finally a gel that: (1) doesn't make my hair hard; (2) give me second and third day hair; (3) minimizes shrinkage and elongate curls. I love this gel and just placed an order for more with summer being right around the corner. Don't ever change the formula!!!!
"Awesome Product, for any hair type"
. Saturday, May 4, 2013 02:07:38 AM
Product Review: This product is amazing, please don't ever change it! My friend gave me this as a gift, at first glance I wondered why. I am caucasian (as is my friend) with wavy/curly blonde hair. My friend and I have very similar hair so she knew this would work for me, and she was SO right. I can even sleep on it and refesh my hair the next morning by runnning damp fingers through my hair. I would recommend this product to anyone. Thank you for making this!

Product Review: This product is an OUTSTANDING curl definer for my dry, fine-medium, cottony hair. I use it on soaking wet hair with no leave-in at all and a little pomade on top to seal in the goodness. A staple for sure!! I have also used Curly Magic with Super Curl and Extra Butter as was fab! Order and you won't be sorry!

The UFD customer service is a little on the slower to non-existent side, though. If UFD could please respond to folks more timely and regularly (telephone messages, emails and/or Facebook) it would be great! Thanks!

Product Review: Going natural was one of the best things I could have done for my hair. WIth that being said, being natural is not as easy as one would think.... you have to find the right products for your hair. After spending a few days looking like Fredrick Douglas, I stumbled upon Uncle Funky's Curly Magic. This is wonderful in a bottle. My hair curled like it never curled before.... THANK YOU FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL PRODUCT!!!!!!

Product Review: I love each of the products I purchased. I have tiny baby curls & it used to be very difficult finding a product that would keep my hair moist & shiny. But with Squeaky, Richee Rich, Thirsty Curls & Extra Butter my curls remain supple & defined. I couldn't believe it! Before UFD my hair was dry/dry looking & with a frizzy Afro. I absolutely love these products & now I'm ordering the Curly Magic to see what magic can be created with these tiny curls.
