I got a good amount of product in the sample - often a problem because I have a ton of hair. but I just didn't like how it made my hair feel.

wanted to love it as much as everyone else did
Sampled

Maybe I just can't expect miracles from my hair... it in fact WAS crunchy for the first few hours (and very hard to apply, very very thick - like old school DEP), and I probably didn't distribute it evenly. It's a very hot, humid day in New York and I wish I could say that my curls were holding up to it.... I will give it another try, though.

Too heavy
Sampled

I have curly hair, but it's short, so this product may have been too heavy.

Frizzy, but defined curls

I have pretty temperamental curly hair, so I'm definitely willing to give this another go. It was absolutely crunch-free and soft as promised, but it wasn't strong enough to contain the frizz. I'm hoping another go around will produce better results. I did like how defined my curls were, though! Big ringlets instead of the usual smaller ones!

only ok

I have medium thick, curly/wavy hair that can be coxed into ringlets with the right product. Unfortunately, this is not it. Despite the other wonderful reviews, I found this gel to be drying and did nothing to decrease frizz. I might try the cream, but I can't recommend the gel until you have very curly hair.

It smells good, and it doesn't leave a crunch to your hair like hair gel does. But it doesn't prevent frizz.

Decent curls
Sampled

It wasn't bad. I didn't care for the smell or texture. Definitely didn't add any crunch to my curls though.

Works Ok
Sampled

I do enjoy this brand and this product worked okay for me but I would not purchase it because it didn't work amazingly well and I find myself still on the look out for a nice product.

Not a fan!

The Original Pillow Soft Curls works better for 3b-3c hair. This gel is too greasy.

Makes hair greasy

This gel doesn't make your hair crunchy... but it does make it greasy! I have very fine hair so it was just a bit "much" for me since I usually use a creme or mousse. Would be nice for thicker hair, I think.
