Definitely gets anything stuck how you want it. This gel also works great for those with weaves. The gel is sticky but it works the best when you blow dry it once it is applied. It does dry invisible you will not have white flacks after. I purchased mine at Walmart for a decent amount and I will be trying the hairspray very soon! ...read more

I have tried so many products over the years and this has been the only one that works for me. My hair is thick and full and naturally curly. Most products either weigh it down or make it too dry. This gel not only is not sticky, but It makes my hair stay in place without the hard clumps that some products bring out. I swear by this gel. I use it daily and it never drys out my hair. ...read more

Gel freaks me out. It makes me nervous. It makes me think of the 'wet look' from the 90s or makes me worried my hair will come out looking like ramen noodles.

But THIS stuff just about has taken my fear of gel away. It's perfect for any type of curly hair (and I know - because I've got just about all the curl types on my head). My hair dresser recommended that I put it in while still in the shower and then squeeze the excess water out. Then gently use a microfiber towel to scrunch any extra water away. I use the 'plop' method of drying, which involves tying your hair up in a t-shirt, and this gel gives my curls just the right amount of support to dry into pretty ringlets. If your hair is a little crunch after drying, just scrunch your dry hair and the gel casting breaks, leaving gorgeous, soft curls. This gel has become a staple in my beauty routine! ...read more

I love this product! I use it whenever I want to scrunch my hair and does an amazing job at holding my waves. I put some of this in my damp hair, spray some hairspray, and let it air dry. It can make my hair a little crunchy, but I don't mind that when I'm scrunching my hair. It's at a great price point, and I have repurchased it many times. ...read more

Let's be honest, who doesn't love Herbal Essence? Can't say enough good things, but let's focus on this product. My hair tends to have frizzy somewhat unmanageable waves. But after I bought this product.. Game changer. I love using gels in my hair when I'm wanting a longer tighter hold. & this gel does the job. It makes my unmanageable frizzy hair so pretty. Always complimented on it. Xoxo ...read more

I absolutely love this product! It added so much shine, moisture, & definition to my curls/waves! I have struggled to find something that will fight my natural frizz and not dry my hair out and this is definitely what I've been looking for! Putting too much can cause a bit of crunchiness but if you add just the right amount for your hair type, it will define your curls/waves and help with frizz so much! I've only had it for two weeks but I love it and definitely recommend! I bought mine at ULTA but you can find it at any drugstore around! ...read more
