I love it!!!

I made a new batch of FSG last night and added agave nectar to half of it. I keep seeing all these raves about it on here, I thought I just have to try it. It gave me lots of hold, lots of curl, and the hold has lasted all day! If anything, I think it's a bit too much hold, there was some crunch that wouldn't scrunch. I'll put a little less in next time. I'm really impressed at what a difference it made! I've used honey, and thought agave would be the same, but it's really a lot different!
