Fabulous
Review by Gloria L. on 18 Jun 2022 review stating Fabulous
I love this gel. Just like it says, it is light and defining. It’s not sticky at all, it does not weigh down my hair/curls. I love it and I totally recommend it!

Change in formula
Review by Linda L. on 4 Jun 2022 review stating Change in formula
I'm very disappointed with the new formula. I've used the old formula for years and loved it. Really helped accentuate my fine curls without feeling like I had anything in my hair. The nwe formula makes them flat and my hair gets very frizzy. I bought a huge bottle of it and now don't know what to do with it.

Good hold without being stiff, doesn’t smell bad, keeps the curls from getting frizzy.
