Works great
Review by mym on 26 Jan 2023 review stating Works great
I have medium texture curls, and A LOT of it. So I have to use quite a lot of this product, but I've figured out exactly how much. Unlike other gels, this one doesn't get hard like a helmet on my head. I do have to lightly break the cast after it dries, but my curls are touchable and bouncy afterwards, and yet the gel still maintains hold. I prefer doing it that way because it gives me more control, as opposed to using less of heavy gel that gets hard and crunchy right away. The gel washes away nicely with co-wash.

Light defining gel is a great addition to my hair routine. It’s light and not sticky. Gives my hair a natural look!
