It makes my curls really really curly. I have S curls and this stuff makes my S curls really pop and spring. I really like the results but I can pass on the smell. Smells like some old dude's cologne. It seems to go away mostly when the hair is dry. I notice for me it dries shiny which I like.
I don't use it anymore because I have a lot of hair..and I find that little tube to not be much for it to cost me 4 bucks and some change. Plus the smell annoys me after a while. But man if it weren't for that smell..and the price for so little..what a great gel!
I wonder why they wouldn't make a gel called Pure Clean not have such a strong smell. Frankly, no smell would have been great!
