Nov 03, 2010 - I finally convinced myself to forefit the extra cash and try this touted gel out for myself. And I'm glad I did. I should first say that I applied this over the KC Knot Today leave-in first, as the instructions suggested. It becomes apparent when you start seeking professional quality products that they all tend to deliever the same results, and I can say that for this gel it really does stand out from the crowd. Noticable shine, bouncy popped curls, softness, agreeable ingredients, and what really convinced me of the gel's performance was how I was not only able to go for 4-5 days before washing, but that my hair maintained it's nice appearance. It was almost freaky in a way! Now, I will say this. If I could I would have given this 4.5 stars for these reasons- my hair tool a lot longer to airdry, putting the gel over the leave-in gave my hair a funny squeaky texture (but goes away when dry), and it is indeed a little on the expensive side (even for a professional quality gel), but I find these complaints to be somewhat trivial when it came to the final results which made me round up! I would definitely buy this product again.
