I tried this product and then ended up switching to Aveda's Custom Control. I did not like the waxy feeling to Self Control. I've got heavy black Asian hair and this product was too heavy for me. Even when I warmed it up between my palms, it still left little waxy globs in my hair. My boyfriend thought I had dandruff! Yuck!
Custom Control is a heavy gel-like styling treatment for hair. I have straight and heavy Asian hair. I tried the Self-Control wax and it was too sticky and ended up in globs in my hair, even though I warmed it between my palms first. I like Custom Control a lot better because it's not as heavy as Self Control but has more holding power than your average drugstore gel. It's great for giving heavy hair "pieces" or for flipping and separating out the ends.
It's pretty expensive for gel ($16.50) and the packaging could use some improvement. The top of the container pops off very easily making it hard to travel with.

I have very coarse, dark hair that grows very quickly. I will shave my legs in the morning and then shave again if I'm going out at night. I have noticed improvement in my hair growth since using this lotion. Granted you have to use this lotion for about 3 months before you see results. The only thing that I don't like about the lotion is that it's too thin for my liking. I usually have to follow up this product with a heavier cream like Nivea. But I definitely have seen my leg hair grow slower and thinner in the last six months.
