This review is for the hard hold gel in the bottle (not jar). The gel is very hard hold- as advertised. It washes out of your hair clean with no residue. It adds some shine to your hair, but does nothing to control frizz. It's a great hard hold gel- best I've found yet, but a little too stiff for my hair. The bottle lasts months (I have medium length curly/ wavy hair) so it's worth the expense.
This stuff says what it does and does what it says - gives your hair a good hard hold where you need it. Where it is applied, it keeps your hair just on the softer side of crispy. It's a good quality product, so unlike others it doesn't look like you've smeared snot on your head unless you really, really overdo it. In the jar, the consistency is like translucent, iridescent jello. You have to rub it between your hands to melt it before applying. It has a nice smell and there is a lot in a single jar.
