I love AO and Vitacost, but the Mandarin Magic had 0 hold for me, though it made my hair feel very smooth, light, and not producty at all. Usually a light-medium hold is enough for me, like KCCC and Alba Botanica Soft Hold Style Cream, but for me the MM has way less than those and less than AnGel. Does it actually give you hold? I'm thinking of trying it as a LI with a gel on top, when I find a new gel.
