The gel smells a little different but it doesn't leave a funky smell or anything. I like the gel. People say it makes their hair a little crispy but if you scruch the hair it goes away I like that it's got good stuff in it for your hair. I honestly don't think you need to use a ton of it. I'm experimenting withi it, I have 3a/2b curls and I don't use a lot. I want to try more of it. :x
