    It works differently for everyone. Some can use it for light hold gel while others use it as an additive to homemade curl enhance/moisture sprays. I personally can't use it every day for hold in place of hair gel because I have too much and too thick hair. But I do use it after a DT if it on the weekend and I'm not going anywhere just to keep my hair from going everywhere.
    I really like it as a moisturizer in homemade sprays. I use Fruit of the Earth brand but I prefer 100% natural right from the plant when I can get my hands on it.

    it works great for me. smooths my cuticle, and has a really light hold. i can reapply it during the day, no flaky buildup. my hair has nvr looked better, i'm excited to see what it will look like if i co-wash too.
