3.5 lippies. I wish there was a "maybe" option for buy again, because I'm on the fence. I got the travel size for a trip up to the ocean. I have curly 3b hair and I flat-iron. This product has a light pearlescence that doesn't show up when applied. It has a tacky, gel feeling to it, and I was worried because it really didn't melt-in like other blow-dry lotions I've tried. Normally, I dislike the smell of Redken anything, but this one was ok, if a little plastic-y. I applied the product to both wet and damp hair, air dried, then flat-ironed. I concentrated on the parts of my hair that tend to frizz (the back and the ends). Decent results. It cut the frizz, but I was still able to wear the style for 3 full days without getting oily or flat. It definitely performed better at home rather than in the salty air.
