Aug 19, 2014 - This didn't work on my porous, extremely dense 2c hair. I wanted to love it, since it was easily available where I live and the reviews are largely in its favor, but it left me with stringy curls that were sticky when rewetted and a TON of buildup after using it for just a couple of weeks that took ten minutes of vigorous washing and a detox to remove. And I was doing everything right, using it with Knot Today as well. It's possible that this would work better for me after I've been CG for longer and my (pretty heat-damaged) hair is better hydrated, but I've gotten much better results from less expensive gels. On the plus sides: it cut drying time by a few hours (like I said, dense hair, usually takes 8 hours or so to air-dry completely), the cast was easy to scrunch out, and I liked the smell. A kind of vanilla or cotton candy smell; it smelled very artificial but I liked it anyway.
