I live in the South, where we suffer from gross humidity about 10 months a year, and this product did not pass the test. The only way I could get pretty, soft curls was if I stayed inside a well air-conditioned house until my hair was dry. If I tried to venture out into the humidity within and hour and a half of showering, my hair was a total frizz ball. I added a layer of anti-frizz hair spray and that seemed to help a lot but alone, this product was "meh."
Not what I expected...
This gel is runny - more like a liquid. It doesn't take much though to go a long way. It helps to cut down on the frizz, helps keep the hair from gaining volume throughout the day. I live in the Southeast US, and this product works during the hot, humid summer months.
I have really curly hair. This wasnt too heavy and gave my curls a great hold that lasted all day. But it did feel sticky which always bothers me.
I have shoulder length, partially dyed (purple) natural hair, and this works really well in conjunction with my other hair care products. I was already a fan of the company, this just solidified it for me!
Sad it's discontinued
I really liked that it wasn't very greasy or heavy. Just a little dollop and my whole head was super curly, so pretty effective. Though it wasn't overly greasy, residue was still present and had a tendency to clump curls a bit.
