This gel is AWFUL! It didn't define my waves but even worse it dried my hair out.

I've been using the Ultra Defining Gel for several years. I can't imagine my hair routine without it :) - smells amazing and works beautifully!

Review by Janet C. on 13 Sep 2020 review stating Product changed
I loved this product in my last 3 bottles (pump size) but my last one, bought in May 2020, is much thinner and watery. I cannot lean over with the product in my hands bc it runs through my fingers and all over my clothes, rug and floor. I struggle to actually get it in my hair without dropping half of the three pumps it takes for my hair. So, I have tried using one pump and another and another so I can keep it in my palm which works somewhat but it makes my hair so much more wet and doesn't allow me to get the product all through my hair and scrunch it like when it was thicker. I prefer to air dry and now this wetness pulls it down at the part. I have soft curls and I do not like that at all. It used to take 2 hours to dry but now it takes 3 and it is flat at the crown. If I want to wash it at night, it takes far too long to dry. I LOVED this stuff but now I'm going to be trying other products. They've changed something. It was great! Change it back.
