May 03, 2014 - Yes, i agree with the last user. This is absolute crap. I was so "impressed" with the other reviews, + i read others on blackgirllonghair.com. Little did i know that many of the reviewers might have been "capes" for the company, or do not have 4 type hair. So i bought 2 jars since it's so much cheaper than Perfect Edges argon oil. Perfect Edges, your 4c hair IMMEDIATELY lays down without the use of water, scarf and time. With As I am? you need to slather on 1/2 the jar on top of using a lot of water PLUS a silk scarf. I wear lace wigs. At the end of the day, there is a bad smell from the lace being on top of the As I am gel. It smells like very dirty socks. i'm not kidding. i also find it strange that when companies cater to African american women, they use coconuts, bananas and other sweet "jungle fruit". Whereas with caucasion companies, AVeda, Paul Mitchell, and other reputable companies they use light scents. i will not buy this product again, due to the smell, the buildup, the hype and the absolute lack of hold. i'm looking at all the "Guest" reviews on this forum, and beginning to wonder, if they are capes as well.
