I have fine, thin-ish, curly/wavy hair that rarely behaves. I have finally reached a length (several inches past my shoulders) that my hair seems to like. Because of its overall naughtiness and tenancy to fall flat on top (and share too much scalp in the process), I usually wear my hair up on the second day (I wash every other). I got this stuff in my box recently and stared at it for weeks. Feeling frisky but skeptical one day, I gave it a go. For the first time, perhaps ever, I gained a second hair-down day in a row. Volume restored. Curls revived. Happy girl. I rub pea-sized portions between my palms and scrunch away. It has a pleasant peachy smell and my hair doesn't get crunchy like traditional curl products. I'm buying a full sized version... before my sample has run out. As someone who is almost always disappointed by hair products, this was a glorious discovery.
