    I really wanted to love this one. The price is right, it's CG-friendly and fairly easy to find. Unfortunately, it made my hair feel like a greasy, unwashed, weighed down mess - on a shampoo day, no less! Just ick/eeww.

    Having said that, I'm a fine-haired 2-wavy. My hair gets over-conditioned and weighed down very easily. I think what my hair hated in this was the PEG-40 castor oil.

    This might work well for someone with full-on unruly curls &/or a thicker/courser texture to their hair.

    Hope this helps!

    I had a kind of opposite (but equally bad) reaction to this.

    I wanted to like it too... but it made my hair feel like ICK. REALLY dry, stringy and just gross and coated.

    Very sad :(

    I like it occasionally, but it doesn't really spray - it spits blobs. I spray it on my hands and then smooth it thru. I usually only use it if whatever else just doesn't seem to be doing the trick that day, and it just needs a little extra oomph. My hair seems to like it OK with just that occasional use.

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    I love this stuff - but I agree, it's hard to spray - I open it and sort of "pour" it out... but it does have a great effect! although, now a days, I'm sticking with Eco styler and LA Looks Curls gel -works great! easier to use too!
    Tara - have a curly day!!!
