Everyone with braids and dreadlocs in my souse use this to help seal all the frizzies and flyaway's down. I have never used it myself but have felt it (very sticky, gooey, and actually snot or mucus like in texture) and smelled it up close (it smells absolutely delicious! Especially for a hair gel!) I will be trying this for a slicked back look and in my curls pretty soon and will try to update with how I feel about it in my natural soft to semi-tight little ringlets! 👍 I would highly recommend based on what I have seen, but truth be told am not sure if extended use could be bad for the hair...as I've heard most gels are..
