I absolutely love this hair product. I almost always have a short hair style. One side of my bangs is long (a kind of punk cut or pixy) and then the sides and back is kept short and spiky. This product has phenomenal hold. My hair dresser first introduced me to this and I won't use another product for spiking my hair. A little goes a long way... dab your finger in it and add a little water if you want to thin the product out without taking away the strength. Its a great way to style and add texture to your hair.
