Jan 26, 2014 - Right now I have shoulder length 3a/b hair, and when I wear it curly it gets a little too "Shirley Temple" for me and doesn't touch my shoulders. So, I was looking for something that would provide a little stretch. It seems to do what it says. I followed the instructions on the box and let my hair dry naturally. It was super crunchy, so I scrunched out the crunch (upside down) and then gently ran my finger through the bottom layer. After scrunching my hair looks very soft and shiny. I like the results a lot--instead of having loose curls I would say that I have a natural looking wave. I have never been able to "wash and wear" with anything else, so I'm really impressed. Hopefully the results will last through the day. I like the lemony scent, which fades when the hair has dried. My only complaint is that my hair feels sort of gummy (which is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5.) If it washes well this will be an HG product for me!
