Hockeymomof3: I have this and don't care for it for curly style days. It works great as a shiny, sleek, slicked back ponytail look. I think those w/ very short hair or very fine hair would get the best results. It didn't provide any hold for my long, thick mass of hair, and it actually pulls out my curls quite a bit (may be the cones). The apple smell is nice though (not sour smelling like GF)!

I used it before I went CG. I really loved the way it made my hair feel, but sometimes it didn't give me enough hold. That might also be because of the change in the weather/my hair length as well. It's not too expensive and worth a try, IMO.
It worked really well for me at first. Actually REALLY WELL but then it seemed to just make my hair droopy and it gave skinnier curls. It was god but not the ultimate solution.
It is very similar to the B&A gel the way it acts and how the hair turns out, with the B&A gel being a tad better in my opinion.
Well worth a try I think.
Smells very good.
