I really like this product. I have medium length hair on top and short on the side. I use this product when my hair is wet. It provides good hold but still a lot of movement. When my hair dries, the product does not make it look wet or shiny. It makes it look natural, and controlled. My hair is left smooth if i work this product out. Not a lot of hold however, so you either have to use a lot, or go with a stronger product. So, not going to give you much on a very windy day, but, your hair goes back to its style if you brush it through in the event of it getting messed up.
