Quick solution

I purchased this after just a few uses of the sample because it worked well as both a hairspray and gel alternative. I don't normally wear hairspray but a few spritz and working it through the hair really worked well for me.

I like the product but not sure about everyday use. I like it as a restyler though.

Hair Stays in Place

I am known for using firm grip or extra hold hairsprays to shape and form my hair. However, this alternator is perfect for not making my hair look bogged down in product; it is flexible, yet firm and helps keep its hold.

Great texture

doesnt hold as much as hairspray, dont get the crunchy feeling. but holds enough to give a great look throughout the day. wonderful product for my length of hair. not too short but not long either. great look to my day.

No Use for Curly Hair
Sampled

I have thick wavy curly hair that can become very unruly. This product did nothing to help. I must use a fair amount of pomade or other cream product for my hair. This may work well for others, but for my hair type, it is of no use.

Works as depicted in the birchbox article
Sampled

I like the product, but I'm still unsure if it is a gel or a hairspray, though I think that is the point. It works well for restyling and with hat hair / mild bed head, but the residual texture / hand feel is that of crunchy hairspray, which I don't usually go for.
