The secret to success with hair products is understanding your own hair type and needs, and understanding what purpose of each product and therefore finding the right match for your hair. This product is a perfect match for me. I have type 2c curly hair (S-curl with some ringlets forming, and finer and straighter at the sides near my face, and my hair holds a curl very easily, just using my fingers). The colour is that dark/dirty blonde/mouse brown but not a true brown, lightens easily but lacks shine. My top layers were dry, crunchy and frizzy from sun damage and my freshly washed hair is frizzy, very pouffy and thick. If I straighten my hair it goes pouffy and frizzy again a couple of hours later. I washed and conditioned with inexpensive sulphate-free products then used the glaze as instructed. After blowdrying and setting in large rollers my hair was amazingly silky, soft and smooth. And yes,shiny, so I took photos. Even better, I rubbed in a tiny amount of the glaze into my frizzy dry ends as a leave-in conditioner. This worked beautifully. The next day my hair is still smooth and sleek. The secret of this product is high quality water soluble silicones which are good for your hair (it's not true that silicones damage your hair). There are many silicones, some are water soluble and some are not. So this glaze does not build up or dry your hair. Note that if you already have straight, smooth shiny hair this product will not make any difference so you need a different kind of product. But for me it gave enough weight to tame and smooth the poofiness without looking greasy or oily. I will definitely be buying some more. Try just a dab on your dry ends and leaving it in as you would with the glossing cream (which I also like). I like the texture of this product, it is a thick white cream, not a messy oil like most glazes. Highly recommended. It is a small bottle and pricey but you only need a small amount, so it is better value than cheaper products that don't get the same result because they contain only a small amount of the right silicones. I keep stroking my hair because it feels so silky smooth and soft. I have also been growing out a short haircut, have had only one trim in 12 months. This is making my hair more manageable and healthy. Ladies throw out any plastic hairbrushes which cause breakage, get a boar bristle brush. Switch to shampoos that do not contain sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulphate, which are harsh detergents that strip your hair and irritate the scalp which longterm is the cause of hair loss. Also avoid products that contain alcohol which is drying. Remember it is not necessary to go "silicone free" or "cone free", just look for products with quality water soluble silicones that protect your hair. Also the best oils are coconut, avocado and olive which are used in many Fekkai products.
