The sample of this product I received in my first BB was stiffer, didn't leave white streaks, and held my curly hair in place quite easily. After a few months of trying this compared to other samples, I bought this one because it was the best out of the bunch. When I started using the full size, I was disappointed because it was a totally different thing. It was a runny paste that was more difficult to work into my hair and seemed to have a lower hold. I don't know if the formula changed or what I was originally sent wasn't this product, but either way that makes me hesitant to order full sizes from now on.
I'm not going to knock this product too much. It's halfway decent, but simply not what I wanted or ordered.
