Color Gel FAQs
What is the Get Hued vegan color gel?
Get Hued is a vegan curl defining gel + temporary hair color makeup all-in-one. It is an aloe vera based gel that defines curls + leaves the hair feeling soft and moisturized while depositing vivid color.
Is the color gel safe to use every week?
Yes! You can use it as often as you like!
Will the color transfer onto my skin/clothes/furniture?
When fully dry expect minimal transfer onto your hands when you touch your hair (like fluffing your hair or taking down your twists). The gel will easily wash off with soap and water. You may also expect minimal transfer onto your clothes + other fabrics that may brush up against your dry hair. In most cases, these will not be permanent stains + will wash out with laundry detergent. If possible, wash any stained fabrics (per the fabric instructions) as soon as possible.
Can I apply the gel on dry hair?
Yes! The gel can be applied on damp or dry hair. We recommend you play around with the application to determine what your hair likes the most.
So how wet does my hair need to be?
Ideally, your hair should be mildly damp, NOT dripping wet. When applied to dripping wet hair, a lot of the color may end up on your bathroom floor instead of your hair. :(
Is the gel sticky?
No, it is not.
Will it leave a gel cast (i.e. dry hard and stiff)?
Possibly. It depends on how much gel you apply + how thick your leave-in conditioner is. If you experience a gel cast, it will likely dissipate on its own or you can lightly apply oil to your hands + "scrunch out the crunch" to break up the cast.
How long will the color last?
The color will likely be vibrant for the first 2-3 days then slowly begin to fade as the days go on assuming you do not apply more gel.
How long will one 2 oz jar last?
On shoulder-length hair, one jar of color gel should get you through 3-4 whole head applications (if you are especially heavy-handed with product then possibly two).
Will this work on straight hair?
Yes! You can use a small amount of gel on straightened natural hair or relaxed hair to add highlights. We recommend using a hair dye brush to apply color to straight hair.
Will the color fully rinse out of gray/blonde/bleached hair?
Although rare, there is a possibility that the color may stain highly porous bleached hair. On most occasions, the color will rinse out completely on the first wash. If your hair is naturally blonde or pre-lightened, please do a patch test first in an inconspicuous area to make sure the color rinses out completely before committing to your entire head. We recommend you apply shampoo twice during your hair wash session to make sure the color is completely removed.
Will this work on locs?
Yes, the color gel works great on locs! To use, take a small amount of color gel and using your fingers, press and roll the gel into the loc. To remove, just rinse the hair with shampoo and water.
Can I apply heat?
You can flat iron or use a curling iron after applying the gel (please no hot combs). Also, please make sure you are using a heat protectant as well. You can expect some of the color to transfer onto the iron but it can be easily removed with a soapy paper towel. Additionally, we do not recommend applying the color to your entire head, consider applying only to the ends of your hair or as highlights throughout.

Will it drip when I sweat?
We recommend applying the gel about 1-2 inches away from the scalp to prevent color from dripping around your face.
Do I need the Curl Awaken Primer or the Seal It Up Serum to use the gel?
Both of these products are formulated to provide the best results when used with our Get Hued gel and are highly recommended, however, they are not a requirement for color success! You can also use your favorite leave in conditioner (generally lightweight creams are best) and a lightweight oil to seal the color like jojoba oil will work well.
