It has a pleasant smell. Holds waves in my hair for a few hours. I was hoping for a longer hold. My son likes it better than I do. It also holds a lot longer for him. Guess it depends on the style and texture of hair.
These are really good. On mornings we're behind schedule my boys just pop them in microwave. Simple enough for them to do and eat before the bus gets here. I've found them to be the cheapest at Walmart for $2.00 compared to any other store.
