There are 2 versions of this - the regular hold and the ultra hold. The one in the picture is the regular (medium hold) while the ultra hold is similar but has orange on the packaging. That is the one birchbox has in stock.
The regular hold is perfect - the ultra is too strong, flattens the hair and gets hard (and white).
The Kérastase Bain Capital Force Gel has great hold, and I like the sleek look. It can make my hair fuller if I put it on right after the shower and blow-dry. I prefer the sleek looking after affects it can bring.
