Mar 15, 2010 - This stuff completely surprised me. Originally I used a very small amount and got straight stringy hair. Not good. Then I used a grape (large) sized amount and what a difference. It left my curls enhanced and defined--even on my straighter canopy. It held all day and I got 2nd day hair. I added just a bit of a hard hold gel over it (because I usually do and am paranoid about hold!). It is hard to distribute (its only drawback outside of smell which isn't that great to me) but you can either add some other gel to it or a bit of water. Using it on soaking wet hair also helps a lot. Really great curls! They weren't as bouncy but they held fine. Not too producty either. Thumbs way up!
