This had such great reviews, I had to get it. I hate crunchy curls and thought this could be a perfect solution to let my hair dry naturally!

But, I'm quite disappointed with its performance. It smells bad, is super sticky and did nothing to hold curl in my hair. Yes, my hair was soft, as advertised, but it was also a fluffy, shapeless and frizzy mess. I've tried varying amounts of the product and letting it air dry or blow drying it--the results are always the same. I would not recommend this if your curls are not already well-behaved without product.

Now I have this enormous tube that I have no plans to use!!

Perfect for soft natural curls!
Sampled

I'm a naturally curly girl and when k saw the consistency of this products it immediately took me back to when I used LA Looks in high school and wore my hair super crunchy. Now a days I prefer softer curls and tend to lean towards creams vs gels to achieve the look and feel I want. However I really enjoyed this product. It felt light on my hair and definitively gave me soft bouncy curls. I applied with and without using a diffuser and both times I loved the result.

not my favorite gel

this product didn't do it for me. Ive tried a lot of different gels for curly hair and am always looking for the one that wows me. I am going to keep looking.

I really like this product.

After I tried the sample I ended up buying the full size. I typically use moose but I find that this works just as well and doesn't leave my hair crunchy at all. I don't love the smell it has right out of the bottle, but once it is dry on my hair it smells fine. I also really like that it is cruelty free and that they do not test on animals.

Loving my curls!

I am so happy I got this sample in my birchbox! I will definitely be buying the full size product. It keeps the frizz away and without weighing down my curls. It's so nice to be able to wear my natural curls with confidence!

Hoping for better
Purchased

I had high hopes for this product. Each time I used this product, it left my hair straighter (probably from applying it to "not wet" hair, as per instructions) and just as frizzy and unruly as without product. The product gave my medium-length, medium-tight curly hair no structure at all. Buyer's remorse.

True Love!

This stuff is the BEST. My hair is fine and thin. Normally its wavy, with the top being curly and the underneath falling flat and straight. This makes my curls go full on CURLY. Love it! Gives me so much volume and curl. Wish I had a life time supply!!
