I love it! I use it as both a RO and a LI. I only use GVP and gel, no other stylers, BUT my hair is thick and coarse and sucks up moisture so I can see how it might weigh some people's hair down. My hair doesn't get very tangled so I don't have an issue with that. As far as the bottle...I keep it upside down in the shower so it doesn't have to make its way to the top each time.
