It's your average curl product. My hair would turn out not bad with this along with a curl mousse, but for the price I would expect it to be at least sufficient on it's own. If you're only using this you'll still have some frizz and not as much definition. I've had much better luck using suave captivating curls mousse with marc anthony curls stretch. Put together they are still a better price than this product.
This really defines my curls, makes them soft and keeps frizz away. A lot of curl definers I've used make my hair hard & crunchy. I have thick, somewhat coarse chin-length hair that curls with the right product....otherwise it just gets puffy. Love this stuff!
