For slicking my long hair back in a perfect, frizz-free, sleek ponytail, this gel was amazing. Lightweight and easy to wash out. I only have two gripes. One, my hair would then look wet for this rest of the day, and never really dried. Two, I wish I could have used this as a normal gel when I wasn't doing an updo. If I did use this, then blow-dry my hair, it would make my hair look greasy. I beleive this product is discontinued, which is good. I would rather purchase a gel (or any styling product really) that I can achieve multiple looks with.
