Mar 07, 2014 - It gave my coils a soft feeling, yet a firm hold, without flakes or stickiness. This is the kind of "gel" I like to use. If my hair was longer, I think it would be nice for twist outs and such. It also has a nice perfume-like smell. I think it's pleasant and not too strong and unless you have longer hair around your face you probably won't smell it too much after it dries. I do get occasional whiffs of the scent, but I like it so, it doesn't bother me.
