Dec 27, 2009 - I only gave this product 3 curls because of the learning curve, and the drying time. Currently, it only works for me when I wear my hair back in a ponytail. It has great hold, but can get crunchy if you use too much. I have yet to master the loose curls look, (my first attempt was a disaster). My hair looked like a crunchy jheri curl, which isn't the look I was aiming for at all. I don't mind the price because a little goes a long way and this jar will last me forever.. I will probably not repurchase when I'm finished cause i've found another product that does the same thing, and although price isn't an issue to me (if a product is worth it) I'd pick a product with the same results at a cheaper price tag any day..
