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.

It was okay

I have slightly wavy hair. So im not sure why i got a curl product. It didnt do much considering my hair doesnt need a curl product.

Jelly Soft?

I also was excited when I got this sample in my first Birch Box as I have super unruly curly hair. I have seriously tried EVERYTHING under the sun. This product was a Blah to me. I used it as the instructions said, but my hair was not "soft" nor was it especially cute. It was just big, and Mufasa like. Will keep the search on.

Feels a bit sticky
Sampled

It's important to remember that while this is a soft gel, it is still a gel. My hair does not respond well to gels because it is so fine; It ends up feeling coarse and sticky every time. This product was light, kept my natural volume and curl, and smells fine, but the sticky feeling will keep me from purchasing this product.

The brand in general makes my hair dry out, still on the fence about this product.

I have curly hair tinged with gray so my curls tend to be frizzy. This product tamed the frizz and made my curls defined - all without the heaviness and crunchiness of other curling products. I will be buying!

Not great. I have long, long curly hair and it really didn't do much of anything.

liked it

I have tried NUMEROUS different types of products for curly hair. I have thick, curly, frizzy hair that I have been trying to tame. I was super excited to try this product. The hold is a little too soft for me, doesn't quite tame my curls. I won't be ordering, however I am glad I found the company Miss Jessie's because I am ordering one of their other products that they advertise as having a medium hold.

Not sold

I was excited to get this product in my box, because I have wavy/curly hair and am always looking for a good new product. I use finishing cream now and it works great, but was happy to try this soft finish gel. It smelled pretty bad, but I kept at it. When my hair dried, the gel seemed to have little to no effect. Will stick to what I use.
