I picked a tiny little bottle of this from Ulta with my roommate. He has ridiculous hair and was looking for something to manage it a little better. We said, why the hell not? and took it home. He ended up traveling for a bit and it ended up at my house and in my possession. I have stick-straight hair and really appreciate hair products that don't make my hair greasy and sticky and gross. I figured a product aiming at short hair for men might work well for me in lightness and ease. This is one of the least tacky but effective products I have come across. Like mousses, I feel there is a decent amount of control so the product doesn't go where it shouldn't in quantities you don't want. I need to experience it more to give more feedback, but so far so good.
