No good for sleek up-dos

I don't have curly hair, so I was bummed to get a sample I don't have much use for in my most recent box. That said, I've been loving a sleek, slicked-back topknot for summer, so I tried to repurpose the gel for this style. I know I'm not using it as labeled, but it certainly wasn't great for my purpose. I found it dried very crunchy on my updo.

not a product for me
Sampled

I have wavy hair that I need to straighten. I do not need a product that helps my curls. This product was a wasted sample for me. Sorry

Like a drugstore gel

This gel left my hair frizzy, weighed-down and half flat. My "curls" were sticky until they dried, then crunchy when they did dry. I cannot recommend this product.

my hair isnt curly, why did i receive this?

I was really disappointed to receive this product in my box. my hair isn't curly and I have no use for this. I did try it out to see if it would work in my hair but it just left my hair limp and lifeless.

Not for me

I tried this product even though I don't have curly hair. My hair can be a bit wavy, but not curly. It didn't do anything for my hair. However, I would like to try it again when my hair is longer again. :)

Not impressed

Even with using less than recommended, my thick and wavy hair was unmanageable and 'crunchy'. After my hair dried naturally, the product was visible. The sample was a generous size but the packaging makes it hard to keep for future uses. I was reminded of my grandmother's Dippity Doo.

Not for me

I have used this product in the past. I thought it was terrible! When I opened my box this month and saw it I was so disappointed. Although I have friends that want to try it so maybe they will have better luck.

So disappointed
Purchased

My hair is very tight curl. I got no definition from this product. Could not get my fingers through it. Looked like an afro, but that was not my goal.

disappointing
Purchased

This product was recommended to me by your site and everything I read in the description sounded like exactly what I was looking for in a styling product, but I am very disappointed. I have tried applying it at various times (from out of the shower to partially dry) and in various amounts. It recommends a cap full and I have tried that and more and less product. It always goes on uneven, leaving my hair partly crunch and partly frizzy. Not a good mix. I will not be using this or buying it again.

Big disappointment
Purchased

I wish I had a good review for this product, because I was really looking forward to it. I tried this product twice to give it an accurate review.

I know everyone's curls are different so to explain mine - I have very fine hair, with curl and frizz. I live in a very dry climate as well.

The first thing I noticed about this product is that it smells AWFUL - like grandma hair products from the 50's. That alone make me not want to use it because I can smell it the whole day. Second, it made my hair less curly and more frizzy than normal. Ugggg - nightmare. The only good thing I can say is that being a gel it does provide a decent amount of hold to give you some volume. But other than that big thumbs down for me. I have tried a lot of curl products and this is close to the bottom of the list.
