I took time to read the reviews and was excited to give this a try. I have ambivalent wavy hair and need a product to help my hair curl while it dries after showering and this really did nothing. It was crunchy like people said but it did not offer any hold on my thin-average thick hair.

This didn’t seem to help my curls very much. I definitely like other brands better

Great for curls

I have been using this for a while and love it. I have medium curly hair and a small amount keeps the frizz tamed for the most part. It gives it a bit of shine when dried naturally too. Nice scent.

Dries nicely

Very runny gel so sometimes messy but it dries nicely in my dry, wavy hair. Keeps my hair from frizzing and drying out and looks natural when I put it in wet hair and let it air dry. Doesn’t look hard or shiny but like I used something light in my hair. Always keep some stocked.

Too thin of texture

This product needs to be in a pump, not a squeeze tube. It did nothing for my thick, coarse and naturally wavy hair.

Great for thick, dry 3b curly hair

This gel works terrific on my my unruly mane of dry curly hair. Has a nice hold while maintaining softness. I use it after I slather my hair in natural leave in conditioner.
