I use this product off and on. I will use it for a while in order to have more defined curls, but literally after a couple months I notice that my hair falls out more in the shower than when I'm not using it. I know that sounds horrible, but it must not be too bad because I keep coming back to it! I have naturally curly hair, but I still have to use products or my hair just looks flat and frizzy. I will continue to use this until I can find another product that I like better. it does define my vurls, and not make my hair stiff and wet looking!! just try it, and see what you think!
