I was given a trial size of this, otherwise I never would have tried it. I have used this 3 times as of today, and regret those days I have. I have naturally curly hair that is med-length, fairly healthy that easily styles and holds its style all day without much fuss or product. Oh my...this stuff is like tea tree scented glue. The first time I used it I was out of my regular gel(aussie volume gel) and used the same amount of this as I do the aussie...thought that was my mistake that time. The second time, thinking I needed to use a lot less, it left my hair the same. Today, weeks later I used it, out again of my gel, and soooo regretting it. This leaves my hair so coarse, crunchy and dry feeling that I can't wait to wash it out!! Not to mention the shine that is usually in my hair is gone! Agree with other reviewers, this is likely best for a short pixie style or for a man, because if you want touchable hair this isn't it. It also leaves a buildup after only one use. No way would I buy this. Sticking with my cheap aussie which gives hold with softness.

I prefer to use this in mens hair. Helps to give a strong hold. Although its not a favorite of mine....

I was amazed to find that Paul Mitchell makes a "firm hold" version of this gel, because the original version is like glue! I think this product would only work for those with short, spiky hair-- definitely not anyone who wants a natural look. When I couldn't find my preferred curl gel in Ulta, I picked this up as a temporary replacement. And it's going right back to the store for a refund! (This was recently reviewed in Lucky Magazine as a gel that would turn wavy hair into curls...well, it will likely turn wavy hair into a big, sticky mess instead).
