I naturally have wavy hair and after using this product, my hair became thick, greasy and it started to fall straight. yes that's right STRAIGHT.
Not a fan of this product and will not rebuy, normally AG is great, but I was very dissapointed with this product.

I have fine, 2b hair. I use this after I apply a bit of mousse. I really haven't noticed an increase in waves since I started using this. Also, it offers hardly any holding power. I need something with a bit more grip to it in order to hold onto my waves. That is why I need to use mousse and/or TIGI Catwalk Curl Booster in addition to this. It just doesn't do the job on it it's own. I will not repurchase this but I will use up what I have.

This didn't do much except make my hair softer. I have a good amount of fine-textured wavy to curly hair that I air dry. An SA told me this was one of their top sellers for people with my kind of hair. It didn't help with frizz, and there wasn't much hold. Maybe it works better if mixed with another product or on dry hair? Having better luck with a Giovanni frizz product first, followed by Alba Botanical soft hold styling cream.

Love this product. Been using it for a few years now.
You do not need a lot of product to make it work. I tend to use a small amount and diffuse my hair. Let my hair air dry and gives it a beachy look.

It is pricey but it lasts me about 6 months and i use about a pea size amount and its good for my hair.

I have long, fine wavy hair that gets weighed down very easily. Since I have been using this, I have had nothing but great hair days! For me, I have to mix it in with a palm full of mousse, and I only use a little. If I use to much my hair seems greasy. I just rake it through my hair and diffuse, and it works great. I think this is holy grail for me.

Good stuff! I get consistent results with this. It defines my curls very well and gives them great volume.

I have very fine ringlets that like to "frizz." I use this every single day and it's SUPER GOOD!!! I didn't like it at first for I abhor crispy, crunchy, curls. However, after it's in my hair for about half an hour, I....Me, Me, I FINALLY have soft, bouncy, defined ringlets. I could have cried. I got down on my knees and thanked the powers that be for finding this product. I have searched many years, high and low, expensive and cheap, and tried it all and have not found a product that worked as well as this one. I am 50 with dark brown, bouncy, shiny, wonderfully soft ringlets. Praise the Lord!!

I would say give it a go. I bought mine at Total Beauty Experience in Sacramento where a slaes person recommended it. At least there, if I don't like it, I can bring it back for stroe credit and choose something many times as I need, so I didn't mind paying the $20 for 6 ozs.

Bottom line: LOVE!

I have naturally wavy/curly hair. Previous reviewers have pretty much said it all, but I have to say this worked best for me when I used fastfood leave-in conditioner first to minimize frizz. I let my hair air dry and this combination gave me very nice results.

I am a hairstylist and this product was one of my best selling ones. I used it on every client that had naturally curly hair and those that didn't even know they had naturally curly hair! It activates the curls by just emulsifying it in the hands, apply by scrunching it in towel dried hair starting at the ends. Keep emulsifying the hands and scrunch moving up towards the scalp. Allow to air dry or use a blowdryer with diffuser! Great for lazy days!!
