AVG as a curl refresher (at the end of the day if I'm going out again) works well for me. I experimented a couple of months ago using it as my regular styling gel. I got zero hold and curls became amorphous. When I tried it on 2nd day hair, it made my curls stringy -- works if I'm really in a bind (like oversleeping for work), but not my first choice.
