I am on the verge of tears, and it's not because my menstrual cycle is heavier than most days, but because this is the first product that I have used on my very curly, spirally, unruly hair (2B hairtype for a better visual) that works miracles to achieve a soft, wavy hairstyle.

I have used about a million other products for my curly hair to give it more of a relaxed wave, from …

I just tried this (at my mom's house, I don't have my own) but I think the name is misleading. It doesn't straighten your hair, it's just a serum that you can use TO straighten your hair. Similar to Paul Mitchell's Super Skinny Serum. This is cheaper than SSS and a bit more like a gel, yet still serum-like. I have the SSS at home and while I don't use it often (I …Read more

Had my slightly-longer-than-shoulder-length hair cut at Fantastic Sam's this weekend. My hair is fine and wavy, but I have a LOT of hair. I also use permanent color. I wash my hair once a week, and flatiron it after washing/drying and "touch up" flatiron daily.

The Fantastic Sam's stylist towel dried my hair and then took a dime-sized blob of this product, rubbed it …

I got a bottle of this for free. It does okay, but not great. My hair is naturally thick, curly and pretty coarse. Without styling/product it gets very frizzy and remains rough. I often blow it out with a large round brush and it smooths out very easily. My hair seems to like silicone products. This was just a little too gel-like rather than creamy or more like a serum, which I prefer. …Read more

This product is pretty much useless. It has a gel consistency, it's not a cream like most straightening products. I've used it a couple times, but never got good results. It's also way overpriced. I would never purchase this product. There are so many better products out there.

This is the worst product I've used on my fine, wavy hair! I wouldn't give it a second chance. I've never had such flat hair! My hair doesn't even feel good to the touch. I can't wait to wash it out!

The best product for me was Graham Webb Stick Straight. Since it was discontinued I've never found anything that works as well for my hair. Still …

Oh, how I love Straight Works. This product is amazing! I have wavy hair and this gel tames it like no other straightener I have tried, both drugstore and high end. One tube lasts a long time, and it doesn't leave hair feeling sticky, tacky, or dry. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 lippies is because it's a bit expensive and the packaging isn't so great. The tube is …Read more

My hair is pretty rebellious. It does the reverse of what I want it to do. Usually, styling my hair takes hours and gets me really tired and fed up. I use this on my damp hair and sometimes I add some Garnier straightening balm to it. I comb my hair and then blow dry it till it is completely dry. Then with a big curling iron, I go over small sections and make sure that the ends are curled. I …Read more

I have been using this product for years and I LOVE it. I have long, course,dry, wavy hair and this is the only product I have come across that I feel is thick enough to protect my ends and keep them from drying out. I usually put a small amount in while my hair is damp before I blow dry and straighten it. When I am finished, my hair is smooth and my ends are silky. I don't feel that this …Read more

I love this hair gel! For reference, I have very thick, course, wavy, hard-to-straighten hair. It really has a mind of its own. I have tried quite a few straightening gels out there only to find that they did nothing more than make my hair smell pretty. It seems like most will help treat frizz or add smoothness but the wave is still there! This actually helps straighten my hair. I apply about a …Read more
