OMG I love your rating system LOL Woo Hoo!

I love this gel too! It compares to BRHG (IMO) I was getting great shine with BRHG but now I use CK so I am getting shine from that and have great hold with La Sports gel! Best part...It's CHEAP

Love LA Looks gel. I've used it for about a year and a half.
I don't seem to have a problem with proteins, tho most of my products have them pretty far down on the ingredients list and some don't have proteins at all.

ITA with the hurricane part!! lol. Love your review and 2nd every bit of it. but the smell doesn't bother me. I love this gel!

And yes, I would buy it by the gallons too, if they sold it like that!!

If this ever gets discontinued.... You may hear about me on CNN. And it won't be positive.

I've tried another level of LA Looks....I think it was the level below the Sports Gel. I liked it, but it was very VERY flaky. I had white stuff all over my shirt by the end of the day and I hated it.

Is this stuff any better??

Hmm....I may have to pick it up the next time I'm at Walgreens....

Since it's so cheap, I'm willing to give it a try!

I've heard great things about this gel too. I'm having great luck with the new HE gels but since this comes in a travel size I may have to try it too. It would be nice if it worked because it is cheap and I can take the travel size with me when I vacation at my lake house!
