Not quite right
Review by Lisa F. on 21 Sep 2021 review stating Not quite right
I want so badly to love this - I might purchase again but it's definitely not as good as the original - The consistency, smell (too strong!) and hold are definitely sub-par.

Fragrance is way too strong
Review by talogu80@gmail.com G. on 18 Sep 2021 review stating Fragrance is way too strong
Used to love this product but the recent change has made the fragrance way too strong. I also find I have to use more product to get the same definition and control as before. Not too happy with it and looking for a replacement.

This product is not the same as it used to be. It doesn’t work the same in my hair. It feels greasy and doesn’t form my curls like it used to. Just flat and frizz. I’ll be looking for a new product.

Not what I expected…😩
Review by ahna a. on 15 Sep 2021 review stating Not what I expected…😩
It barely did anything for my hair. If anything it just felt like a lot of product in my hair. I am honestly pretty disappointed.
