Aug 18, 2010 - This was adequate. When I first used this, I used it on top of other products, b/c I was anxious to try it out. No groundbreaking effects there ,just a little added definition. I used it again on freshly washed hair w/a light leave in, it came out ok. I agree that this is good for wearing pony tails, as I don't see this product doing much for defining a curly style left out. This balm has a nice texture, no heavy smells and plenty of slip. I would say it's good for what it's meant for and probably good for hair types up to 4a. However, for the price and the amount, I won't be repurchasing.
