“The Crunch Complaints”
In TGIN Curl Bomb Reviews from 4C Hair Customers

So here is one tgin curl bomb Gel review from a commenter on Mary Maxine's YouTube page...

By the way:

Mary Maxine is a bubbly, cute 4C hair girl who actually loves the TGIN curl bomb gel, you should check her out on her channel ...

But one of the reviewers who was influenced to buy the gel because of Mary's video said this …

TGIN Curl bomb gel on 4C hair Is_TGIN_Good_for_4C_Hair_tgin_Curl_Bomb_Moisturizing_Styling_Gel_ comment_at_marAlexis aint feelin' it...

And Mary gave her some advice that we often hear about using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair, and that's to also use the TGIN argan oil hair serum to remove some of the crunchiness of the hair …

Is TGIN Good for 4C Hair tgin Curl Bomb Moisturizing Styling Gel

Here's the thing:

Alot of other TGIN Curl Bomb Moisturizing Styling Gel reviewers said the same thing, they mentioned that it was crunchy until applying oil, and then the crunch disappeared. 

But if you don’t know that, you’ll be upset, ya know?

You don't know what you don't know.

Shoot, some folks out here still didn't even know that TGIN made the curl bomb gel. Ha!

Here’s another honest review from a 4C natural about TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair who loves all the other TGiN products except for the Curl Bomb gel...

Still though:

The news about TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair isn't all bad...

Mary is Loving Her TGIN Curl Bomb on Her 4C Hair

Earlier, I told you about Mary Maxine and how she has a YouTube channel for real 4C hair women. And she loves the TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair although she also thinks the product is a bit expensive.

By the way:

Mary has low porosity hair 4C (and some 4B) hair, so take note of that if you are also a low porosity girl. It's important.

TGIN Curl bomb gel on 4C hair what_does_4c_hair_look_like_natural_hairMary WORKIN' them sections with TGIN Curl bomb on 4C hair

Here's what she liked about the TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair:

  • Barely had to use any product, so it will last her a long time.
  • It smells really good, kind of like a pear scent.
  • It was very moisturizing for her.
  • It gave her good definition. 
  • Her 2nd day hair looks better than ever with TGIN Curl Bomb Styling gel.

TGIN Curl Bomb Moisturizing Gel First impression

Now remember:

Mary has low porosity hair so that’s likely the reason she barely used any product, so it's going to last a long time.

And she knows that she doesn't need heavy products.

That's one of the advantages of knowing your hair porosity, understanding how to use products to your advantage. 

That way you're really able to get your money's worth out of 4C hair products. 

She use both TGIN Twist and Define cream and the TGIN curl gel, she felt like she can get probably 6 wash and goes out of the two products together.

One "con" is that if you're a cheap natural you might not want to spend the money on TGIN products because they are a little bit pricey. 

MARY’S PRO TIPS: She clamps her sections of hair to elongate her curls when doing using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair wash n go’s, that's a good tip for type 4 honeys. She also air-dried her hair for an hour and then diffused it.

Also, one of the ladies over at Lipstick Alley with 4C hair and a 4A crown liked TGIN Curl Bomb on her 4C hair but still not as much as Gorilla Snot for maximum hold. It's good to know that is not runny or sticky too...

Hold on though, because:

The Verdict:
TGIN Curl Bomb Gel on 4C Hair Reviews Wrap-Up

Now remember:

These reviews are 4C-hair specific, and not all 4C hair is the same.


While we were studying reviews we noticed that many women with 3C and 4A hair love the Curl Bomb gel product more than most 4Cs we saw.

So, the overall vibe that I picked up from the TGIN reviews for 4C hair was that it was not the best choice for 4C hair ladies.

And that's weird, because:

The rest of the TGIN natural hair product line is beloved by 4C hair women.


It is what it is, sis. So check this out...

Here are some of the main pros and cons that we noticed:


  • It moisturizes for most women.
  • It defines well.
  • Low porosity 4C's don't need to use much product. 
  • It smells amazing.

And here are the cons of using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair…


  • It flakes on a lot of 4c's
  • It makes your hair crunchy if you don't oil afterward.
  • Many complained that it leaves a residue.
  • It doesn't have great hold for 4C hair.
  • It's not humidity-friendly.
  • 4C hair wash-n-goes likely won't last a full week.
  • It cost too much for some.

PRO TIP: The TGIN Twist & Define cream is a great candidate for doing a one product twist out braid out or wash-n-go on 4C hair. Because it's very moisturizing and it smells amazing.

A “keep it real” type sista named Linda Lynn on Youtube made some very interesting points about TGIN curl bomb on her type 4 hair. 

She lives in New Orleans and her wash and goes don't last a week in that humid climate,  She found it to be not very humidity-friendly. 

She did make the point clear though: 

If you don't mind doing a CO-wash every week or if you don't mind washing your hair twice a week then it may work for you, and you may be fine.

She wasn't about that life though.

What about you?

If you have kinky coily hair you might not feel like washing your hair 2 or 3 times a week just to refresh and redo your curls.

If you do have the time...

...then handle that sis. But most don't have time to be reapplying a product 2 or 3 times a week.


Some naturals say that using TGIN Curl Bomb Styling gel isn't much different than using aloe vera gel. 


Too many people reported the snowflakes, flakes coming off and getting on their clothes, although that does have something to do with your hair porosity.

Another good reason why you need to know what your hair porosity is. 

And even though most TGIN natural hair products are just the bomb...

...and many naturals are very willing to spend the money on their products because of the results that they get.

Look sis:

TGIN Curl Bomb Moisturizing Styling gel for true 4C's might not be the product for you.

It seems that there are better options out there for you than TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair.

Still though:

If you decide to give it a whirl,  we'll explain to you how to use The TGIN Curl Bomb for the best results...

How to Use TGIN Curl Bomb
 for a 4C Hair Wash-n-Go

So, how do you use TGIN Curl Bomb? 

Here's your answer: 

  1. Start on washed, conditioned, and deep-conditioned hair.
  2. Detangle your hair as much as you can during the conditioning process, but it doesn't have to be fully detangled because you're going to finish the detangling with a wet brush. 
  3. Separate your hair into sections with hair clips.
  4. Start with your 1st section and... 
  5. Spray your hair with a water aloe vera juice mixture, it doesn't have to be completely saturated, just wet enough to spread the product. 
  6. Once the first section is moist apply TGIN Green Tea Super Moist Leave-in Conditioner.
  7. Now separate that first section in half with your hands.
  8. Brush detangle with a wet brush.
  9. Add one or two pumps of the TGIN Curl Bomb gel to the section Using the shingling or raking method to make it clump. 
  10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 for each other section of your hair.

PRO TIP: Shingling your hair causes your 4C kinks to clump better than raking, you can also do a hybrid of the two techniques to save time versus doing pure shingling when short on time. Don't know the difference between raking and shingling, go see the video further down this page...

Once you are finished with all of these steps on how to use TGIN Curl bomb for a 4C wash and go, let your hair dry out if you have the time. some 4 C's choose to use a diffuser to speed up the process.

Once your hair has dried, in order to lessen crunchiness you can break the gel cast with TGIN Argan Oil replenishing Hair & Body serum.

Do you have to use TGIN’s Argan Oil Hair serum? Honestly, no.

You can use any high-quality argan oil, but you’ll love TGIN’s argan oil hair & body serum when trying TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair…

  • It's non-greasy.
  • It's an amazing smelling product. 
  • It's great at sealing in moisture. 
  • Multi-purpose for hair and body.
  • A little goes a long way.

PRO TIP: Start at the back of your head,  because if you start at the front when doing a wash and go it makes the process more difficult because you’ll have hair in your face and it makes the styling process harder for you to control. 


Keep in mind that wash-n-go's require alot of manipulation which makes kinky-textured type 4 hair more prone to more tangles when using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair. Sooo...

To fight against tangles, it's best to keep your hair stretched during the process.

If you're looking for natural hairstyles that don't require as much manipulation when using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair, it's probably better to do a twist out, flat twist, updo, etc. 

FINAL NOTE: During this process of using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair, apply it from roots to ends. Be sure to separate your hair as you're applying. Once the product is applied you can wear your hair out or style it as you please. Twistouts and braidouts add extra curl definition when using TGIN curl bomb.

TGIN Curl Bomb for 4C Hair - Gel Ingredients

Here is the Ingredients list for TGIN Curl Bomb Moisturizing Styling Gel: 


As we mentioned in the article about "Is TGIN Good for 4C Hair?", you don't have to worry about the product ingredients when using TGIN Curl Bomb on 4C hair, they are always high quality. You can see more reviews of TGIN Curl Bomb here.

And although you can't claim that these products are “all natural” ,the same probably goes for every bottle of product you have on your shelf if they have any commercial preservatives in them.

Still though:

TGIN does far better than most hair product companies as far as the amount and quality of natural ingredients they pack into their natural hair products for 4C honeys.
