I have PP gel, and I agree with the others that it is does not have hardly any hold to it. I anagain agree that it gives great clumps and shine. I do use this gel as my first layer. I find using more than one layer is the only way to control my frizz. I then layer either arcangel or CJ CQ next,and smasters with KCCC. I some times switch out PPgel with CIAB. But to your question, it definitely dose not have more hold. I think arcangel or curl queen are the best.
