I have a LOT of fine, curly hair (think Keri Russell or Julia Roberts) that has plenty of body and a tendency to frizz. Where I live it is very humid so I am always looking for something that helps maintain shape and can stand up against the humidity. I have to use about 4-5 pumps, and it takes several hours for it to really look nice. If I put in less, it doesn't hold the shape, but with that much, it goes through a phase that is sticky and sort of stiff. I let it air dry and for the first four hours or so it looks like my hair is still wet, then it settles into a nice cult pattern. If I try to break it up with my fingers before it settles on my own it gets frizzy. I really wanted this to work but its just too much messing about to get a consistent stye that I am happy with. I will stick with the Ouidad gel + a cream or oil smoother, which is what I use now. I really wanted this to work. Maybe in a less humid place or in hair that has a tighter spiral?
