I decided to buy this one day because it sounded like my permed parched hair would like it. I was not let down. It went on smooth and even detangled. When my hair dried it was soft, not crunchy, but still had hold. It does a have scent that smells similar to their other products, although a little lighter. This is better than most of the high dollar salon stuff I have been recommended and tried. I will buy this again and again.

I used to use a gel/cream twist product that is no longer available, so I tried this as a replacement. This is very slippery going on -- might be good for creating styling slip... but I like to air-dry, so I never tried that and it just felt weird. The fragrance is nice, but very strong. I would have put up with those two things if this had actually defined my curls. To get any definition, I felt like I had to use so much that it weighed my hair down. After a few hours, whether I used a lot or a little, my hair would look puffy and messy with flyaways even though I was inside nearly all day and had not touched my hair. I live in the desert, so I don't have a lot of trouble with humidity... this was just a product that didn't last. When my neck broke out in pimples after a couple of weeks, I threw out this tube. It may work for you, but it didn't work well for me.

Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel, Extra Strong, 5 oz:

I was intrigued by this product's claim to be a cream and a gel at the same time, since I usually style my hair with both a cream and a gel to get the best of both worlds. My hair is very fine and I am always looking for products that give me shiny, conditioned, yet voluminous curls. I applied this to soaking wet hair, diffused it until it was 80% dry, then let it air dry. After it dried, my hair was stiff and crunchy, but like with any gel, that was remedied by flipping my head over and scrunching out the crunch. My hair now has sexy, defined, long-lasting waves/curls of multiple sizes... BUT it also feels dried-out, has some weird unsightly fly-aways all around, and is still a bit stiff. On top of that, the fragrance is still VERY STRONG and definitely overpowers my perfume. There are better drugstore products out there!

      Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel, Extra Strong, 5 oz:

      Garnier's curl line is hands-down the best. I have used every other brand that you can possibly think of...I've spent upward of 30 bucks on conditioners and styling products...and this out-performs them all. I have extra-curly, frizzy, unruly hair.

      This has been my stand-alone styling product for 5+ years (although until recently it used to come in a tub of goopy green stuff...) and it seriously works wonders. Defines every curl, fights the frizz...and just a great great value. I could not recommend this product more. It is my savior.

        I have dry hair. and I have tried MANY products. This is the best one that I have ever tried. It gives my hair the perfect curl and hold without drying it out.

          Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel, Extra Strong, 5 oz:

          I have naturally curly hair and I am always trying out new products designed to be used on it. Generally I can't get away with using fewer than 2 styling products (after shampoo/conditioner). This is the one product I can use ALONE and get GREAT results. I do have to say that I don't care to use it when my hair gets around shoulder length, but I have been wearing it short (around my ears) for a while now and this is my go-to product.

            Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Sculpting Cream-Gel, Extra Strong, 5 oz:

            I bought this product for only [$] at [...], and I must admit I was skeptical on how well it would actually perform. I had been using a styling creme for my thick, wavy-curly hair at nearly $30.00 per bottle, and I am thrilled to say that this product performs! It smooths the frizz, has a nice scent that lasts nearly all day without being cloying, and it defines the wave and curl in my hair. Only a small amount should be used. It glides through your hair like silk, detangling it.My hair looks good even when I let it dry naturally with this product.

            I usually love Garnier products, but this is a little underwhelming. It made my hair smooth but didn't define my curls at all, which is what I was looking for. It wasn't terrible, it made my hair better than having nothing in it, but it didn't live up to my expectations.
