I love this stuff. It took a little experimenting to learn how much/little to use to achieve the results I wanted, however.

After shampooing, I comb my hair out and towel dry. After that, about four sprays does it. Keep the bottle far enough away from your head that you get a light spraying that covers more area. If you concentrate the spray on one area -- you'll get crunchy, straw hair. Flip your hair over, and lightly finger-comb through. Scrunch while using a diffuser or dry naturally. You can also use on dry hair as a very light hold hairspray.

My only real gripe is the shape of the bottle: It is very awkward, and does not conform well to the shape of the hand (especially a wet hand). The nozzle also requires frequent cleaning or you start getting a "stream" instead of a spray. I'm not big on the scent, either. It has a strong alcohol/chemical scent.

The price is moderate -- $9.50 US for a 7 oz bottle. They now sell a 24 oz refill size; a much better deal at around $19.
