I find this makes curling my hair go much faster because it locks in the curl more quickly, so I don't have to hold each strand to the curling iron for as long. It also leaves my hair noticeably shinier and doesn't seem to weigh down my fine hair as much as other shine products. My only complaint is that the sprayer is very targeted and sprays a lot out at once, so it's difficult to evenly coat my hair. Some areas end up with too much product and others with none at all. I wish they'd use the mist function of the super fine hair spray or the texture spray instead. When you first apply this product, hair is very sticky, and the curls can feel crunchy (but no longer sticky) once curled with heat, but the crunch goes away when you tousle the curls. Because it has quite a bit of hold, if your hair is frizzy, the spray will set the frizz, which is not great. Overall, it's pretty similar to spraying your hair with hairspray before curling it. All of that said, I still give it 4 stars because I still like the results and will keep it.
