I don't find it that much stronger than the light hold version(aka Angell).
I washed my hair this am and used DC One Condition, left about 25% of it in and raked a half dollar size amt of the gel in and scrunched. Then diffused. I don't find it overly mousturizing...but on my straw like hair, nothing is.
