Jul 22, 2013 - I bought this Friday (from Sally's for about $6) and used it through the weekend. The smell is alright. To me, there's kind of an ... after smell(?) that I don't care for but its not strong enough to stop me from using the product. I really liked this product a lot. It curled my hair up instantly and made my hair really soft. Oh, that morning I had used the Hawaiian Silky Dry Look Activator Gel. Over the weekend, I had used the 14 n 1 under the gel activator and had really good results. Still a little fuzzy but that doesn't bother me. Unfortunately, mineral oil has started to make my scalp itch in the last year so I'll be returning this product. Still a really good buy.
