Wonder Curl was born out of pure frustration. Owner Scarlett Rocourt was using 4 to 5 different products to tame her naturally thick and frizzy curly locks and even so, only achieving temporary smooth definition. She set out to make the perfect hair gel and the Get Set hair jelly was the result. Wonder Curl was built on the lofty idea that a hair gel should provide smooth definition to curls of all textures. The formula is designed to be humidity proof, dry weightless and last for several days. The company’s product line has expanded to include a shampoo bar and a fabulous moisturizer, among other offerings. Click here to shop.
