Review by zernelle
I bought this gel to mix with Brocato Saturation Leave-In Conditioner. This combination provides a bit of control and protects my hair while I blow dry it, and it works great for my stick-straight, fine-but-thick hair that currently comes just past my shoulders. I like this TRESemme gel because it doesn't have any silicones, and it's becoming harder and harder to find 'cone-free products at the drugstore. I hate paying salon prices for my haircare products, but so often it's worth it. But at least I don't have to spend a lot on gel, so that helps bring a little bit of balance to my haircare budget.
UPDATE: Grrr! This gel made my face break out. I presume because my hair gets all in my face when I sleep. I've had it cut shorter to chin length since I wrote this review, so it's long enough to get in my face when I sleep but not long enough to pull back. I've stopped using it, and my face is clearing up.
