I am slightly disappointed with this. I have used for many years the previous version, the Curls Rock in the funny blue pump tube and although the first times I had troubles trying to spread it in my hair because it was so thick and sticky, once I found out how to use it (dilute a small amount with lots of water and then applying it on my wet or dry hair) the results were amazing. It really amplified my waves in beautiful curls, kinds of spirals that looked very natural and sophisticated even the next day with few touch ups. This new version is different. Same scent and almost same consistency although this is less sticky. But I think it is loaded with more silicones as it makes my hair really smooth, to smooth for curling, and the amplifying affect is gone. All I can obtain are enhanced waves, actually my waves, and good de-frizz, but no curls, let alone the cute spirals. Also it has not longer the volumizing effect of the previous version but tends to flat down my hair. And what I dislike most is that it gives a sort of “wet look”, even after my hair is dry and “de-scrunched”. Nothing to wear for business or for elegant occasions. It is like using a conventional hair gel: if you have wavy/frizzy hair it can look nice if you wish that tousled, wet “beach look” and if you have really curly hair you can have good definition and smoothing, but it is useless if you want to bring the curls out of your waves and make them look natural. Nevertheless I keep using it when I want the beach look but at the end I almost prefer the much cheaper Tousle my Softly mousse from Herbal Essence as I can obtain more volume and more natural curling with it. Very sad that TIGI changed the formula.
UPDATE: I'm using it as smoothing creme after shampooing and conditioning and I have to say that for this purpose it is awesome. Silky sleek hair how I couldn't achieve from any other smoothing serum. Weird!
