This really, really, really worked for me. This works well on wet and dry hair. It defines curls and smooths, and de poofs and de frizzes, just like it says. The texture was strange at first, like slime or something! LOL! But it works!
My hair is extremely wavy, on the verge of curly. This is the wort time of year - summer - but I think I'm gonna use this in the winter. This defines my hair perfectly while dry. I'm often needing to re wet my hair in the mornings in order to re set hair, after sleeping on it, it gets messed up. Anyway, no need to re wet. This stuff is great. I hope it never gets discontinued. I'm of Mediterranean descent, and my hair is that stereotypical type, kind of like Dominicans get sometimes. Poofy, wiry, etc.
Anyway, I hope others have success with it.
I have very fine, flat hair that's pretty weird- it's curly/wavy underneath but then pretty straight on top. I've been searching for my HG curling product that would define my curls underneath and also sculpt some on top. This product worked AMAZINGLY well. I've tried many curling cremes, gels, mousses, you name it.. I haven't found anything that made my hair so curly, voluminous, bouncy, yet still soft at the same time! I scrunched this in the ends of my damp hair and added some Aussie flexible hold hairspray and then scrunched some more.. it lasted all day and looked great! It's definitely worth trying!
I love this product! I have long, thick, curly hair. Not to mention frizzy. I need about a silver dollar sized amount of this product to tame my hair. Makes my curls..... curlier? Also, it doesn't make it crunchy so it pretty much looks like my hair is naturally that soft and shiny. HA. And I don't have to pair it with any other products. Another pro is that it smells good. I always get compliments on how good my hair smells :) Doesn't really give it volume though, which sucks. But that's what a diffuser is for!
This is a great product! It smells absolutely delicious and does exactly what it says it does. It does not leave your hair crunchy and it makes your curls extremely nice and soft. This one is a keeper!
I have super curly hair and this is the only product I use on it to keep them from getting frizzy and dry during the day. I go through so many of these. I comb my hair in the shower so that I can de-tangle it (it has to be soaking wet to comb through), and once I am out, I apply a quarter size amount to my ends since they need moisture the most, then a nickle size amount to the rest of my hair and my scalp. I do this just about everyday since I can't really style my hair unless it is wet first. So this stuff is great! I let my hair air dry and this product takes care f the rest. It doesn't leave my curls crunchy. It leaves them all soft and defined. This is the only product I need for my super curly hair!
I am a huge fan of almost every Garnier product I try - this being one of the only exceptions. I have had great success with mousses in the past, but I saw this on the Garnier website and it seemed to get good reviews so I gave it a shot.
I have fairly fine 2B/C hair, and I find that this just weighs it down and makes it clump more than anything. It feels oily in my hands, and makes my hair feel (and look) greasy after it's applied. My hair looks and feels like it needs to be washed, no matter how much of the product I use.
If you have hair like me, this is definitely not for you. I've had it for over a year now and nothing I ever try with it works - it's finally going in the garbage.
I like the smell and consistency of this product, but overall, it just didn't work for my hair (wavy/frizzy). It didn't control frizz at all for me or help define my curls. I like the spray gel much better than this stuff.
I love this product! It is my go to curl product, and I have tried more than I care to count. It works especially well in the summer, I can just let my hair air dry after using this, and I get great curl and very little frizz. It never makes my hair crunchy, and while I don't mind paying a lot for products that work - this has a side benefit of being shockingly cheap! I've used it for over a year, and I don't have any problems with it.
I think this had one "bad" silicone in it so its not Curly Girl approved. Which sucks because I really like this. I will continue to use but I might have to consider finding a replacement.
I love this in my 3C DD's hair. After washing & applying a leave-in, I put a decent amount of this in her hair and she's good to go. Her curls are short and very spring-y so she doesn't really need a lot of hold. (I am going to experiment with adding the smoothing milk to see if I can combat frizz a bit more). Soft, shiny & well defined curls.
I also add a tiny amount of this to gel & apply to my 3A/B DD's hair. This lessens the crunch and adds softness.
Overall, I like this gel. I have thick, long, permed hair that tends to be frizzy from over-styling and this gel works really well for taming frizz. It feels a little slick and oily in your hands (I'm thinking it much be packed with silicone) but it doesn't seem to weigh my hair down. It's more of a smoothing gel so don't expect a whole lot of hold but it's nice if you want a softer more natural curl look. Will I repurchase? Maybe. It's good but I'm always looking for something better.
