Review: Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Geltastic Texture

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Dust It & Geltastic Texture

Given my love affair with OSiS+ Dust It, I was pretty excited to receive Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Geltastic Texture in the most recent Influenster Spring VoxBox. After seeing what Dust It it does to my roots, I'm convinced Schwarzkopf knows their hair. Frequent readers will have heard my complaints of fine, limp hair. I'm constantly looking for products to give it texture and body. Unfortunately, after my excitement subsided, I was a little confused as to how I was supposed to use a gel on my long hair. Luckily, Influenster came to the rescue!

On their tumblr, Influenster put together a full post on tips and tricks for using OSiS products. When it came to Geltastic, they had this to say:

1. Heavenly Hair: To achieve tremendous volume and shine, mix Gelastic 1/4 with 3/4 water and apply the mixture on wet hair from the roots to about midway down the shaft. Then, blow dry the hair in the opposite direction that it naturally lies on the scalp.
2. Smooth Moves: To smooth fly-aways, apply a small amount of Gelastic to a brush or your finger and the lightly coat your style for envy-worthy sleekness.
3. From Stick Straight to Crave-Worthy Curls: Got fine hair that won’t hold a curl? Mix Gelastic with water and apply it to the ends of your hair, scrunch and touch the hair dry, then proceed to curl with your curling iron.
4. Sleek & Slick: Put the slick pony tails of the runway to work on the real way by applying a small amount of Gelastic on a comb and then combing it through wet hair. Not for the indecisive: this style will last all day long.
Until I read this, I never would have thought to mix the product with water before applying. Below are two styles I created with Geltastic - one straight and one curly. When worn straight, I noticed some extra body at the roots and encountered less frizzy-ness. Styled curly, I noticed it was easier to style and the style lasted longer! So far, I've really liked what this has done for my 'do! While I haven't tried it yet, my next move is to incorporate it into a sleek bun.

As far as I know, OSiS+ Geltastic Texture is only available in salons that carry OSiS or Amazon.com for $17.50. If you have trouble getting your styles to stick or like to enhance your hair's natural wave, I recommend this!
