I bought this a couple of days ago after reading many mixed reviews. I agree with the strange texture...I was a little put off my it at first. It is a bit oily once in my hair, however, I have very dry hair so my hair actually loves the extra moisture. It adds great definition and no crunch...
So far I love it. I suggest that you try it, I know that target will take it back if you don't like it, so there is no risk.
