This gel can only be explained with one word, Amazing. I have two boy's, one with curly and one with straight hair. This product leaves no residue and is not harsh in any way. My oldest has extreme excema and this product, along with all the rest of the Suave kids hypoallergenic line has no negative affects on his skin. This product line has actually improved his skin and his excema has not flared up once. My husband as well as I have begun to use the same products. I am simply in love and am beyond thankful. I only wish they would create a light lotion to complete this product family.
