So Paul Mitchell is a tiny bit pricey, BUT... this product is amazing (and vegan AND cruelty free!) I’m in the military and between this and my hairspray, my hair stays out no matter what. In the field? Hiking around with 60 pounds on my back? No problem. Hair stays out... sometimes for like 48 straight hours. This product smells great and it lasts for a while. The tea tree oil keeps my hair clean and free of bacteria. So important in my job! Thanks Paul Mitchell!

It does its job. It holds the hair and has a nice scent. I feel the texture it leaves the hair is not very pleasant and has a very sticky feel to it. It also leaves the hair hard to the touch. I would rather use Paul Mitchells other products

I used this every day when I had a perm. This hair gel didn't bother my dandruff because it does contain tea tree oil. I felt like it didn't make my hair feel heavy or nasty once the gel dried. It didn't take a lot for my hair so I feel like the pricing was good.

I bought this gel for my husband’s hair. It has a great scent. We have tried so many for styling his hair, and this one is the best. I use it also to to a side sweep as my side shave grows out, and it worked perfectly and held well throughout the day.

This is my favorite gel to use! I am a Paul Mitchell lover but this is outta this world!! I recently found it whilst looking for my usual shampoo. It comes at a great price and has a great hold. Not to mention it doesn't make my hair feel brittle like most styling gels

My entire family has pretty coarse thick hair. This product has changed the styling game for us for quite some time. It is my brothers favorite for his coarse, thick, curly hair. It holds which says a lot for the type of hair we have and it doesn't leave a sticky or "gel-like" appearance.

After Matrix discontinued Dirty Trix Messy Matte Clay, my stylist has had to come up with some of her own concoctions to try and duplicate the hold without the clay. She uses this Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Gell on my hair first before she adds anything else to it. The tea tree helps my scalp tremendously and gives it a little crunchy hold that the other products she uses (construction paste, etc.) can use as a basis.

I don't use this as part of my daily routine as I found matte clay that works (Baxters of California) but since my stylist doesn't carry it (she's a Paul Mitchell Salon) she uses this gel on me every couple weeks when I get my hair cut. If I had spiky hair, I'd use this product for sure. But for the messy look, I would do what she does and put a dime size amount in your hair before you add other products to it.

This Paul Mitchell, Tea Tree oil, Firm hold hair gel is THE BEST hair gel. I have thick wavy/curly hair and this is the only gel that give my curls definition. My hair does not become frizzy or look dry with this gel. I can spritz some water on my hair the next day and this re-activates the gel and my hair stays curly and not frizzy. The price is reasonable and the scent is of tea tree and if you are familiar with tea tree scent you know how wonderful tea tree smells.

I love the smell of tea tree so I love the smell of this gel. One bottle tends to last me a long time and I have pretty curly hair. I would say it is a med-strong hold and can leave the hair crunchy if a lot is used. If I just use a little it is still pretty soft with still keeping the frizz down. All and all it is hair gel!

I need something for the summer that is gentle on my hair but can help with the frizz on a muggy day. How well does it work?
