You can't beat the wonderful scents of Garnier, because they go on really nice and strong but still linger lightly after they dry. This spray must be more natural in its ingredients because it doesn't cause a reaction in my overly-sensitive nose (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) like the Wave Curls spray does, which is odd because you'd think Garnier would make all their line pretty much the same, but apparently they don't. I prefer the wavy to the crispy crunch, but since the Wave Curls spray really bothers me, I use this one when my hair is very wet or I spray it in my hand and add water to it to make a lighter serum that I can then apply and comb through so that I can distribute it really really evenly. I think that if you're getting really crunchy curls, then you aren't evenly applying it. Then, when my hair is dry, I run a pick very carefully through any crispy places and the crispiness goes away without becoming fuzzy (if you use a brush or comb, it will get frizzy). The curls will LAST. And there's no glycerin or wheat germ, which my skin is sensitive to. While I prefer a lighter "wave," this product CAN work if you are careful and patient! If you CAN use the Wave Curls, then use it, but if you need a stronger hold or if your nose needs this product, then try adapting it like I do. And it smells very natural.

I really wanted to like this product. I heard so many good things about the Garnier Fructis line, and I have used the Seek and Shine system for days when I straighten my curly hair. This gel, however, did absolutely nothing for my hair. When I use this product my hair my hair got quite frizzy, and it did not shape or define my curls at all. I even played around with the amount and distribution method to see if that made a difference, which it didnt. I didn't even finish using this product. I ended up throwing it in the trash.

It was okay...I bought it thinking it was the wave spray..which i absolutely love even though my hair is more curly then wavy. But for some reason that spray isnt carried on drugstore.com. grr. This one is a gel plain and simple, nothing extraordinary. Although it does smell great

      I have straight hair but found this is a great product to give me some body and smooths my frizzled ends. Worked best if my hair is slightly damp, and then shape in some body waves with my hands. I like it much better than a heavy gel or slimy mousse product. Smells okay too.

      Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray Gel, Strong, 8.5 fl oz:

      I have curly hair and have a hard time finding products that are not too heavy and don't cause frizz. This product is great for a later day pick-me-up to my style...and also to add in a little more volume. I use it in addition to hair gel I use on a daily basis. I have tried A LOT of products and this is a good product at a great value.

      It's crunchy, but it is gel. Smells nice and gets the job done with a few crispy curls along the way. Not bad.

          Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray Gel, Strong, 8.5 fl oz:

          My hair is dry, curly, and out-of-control frizzy. And this product, combined with an anti-frizz serum or cream, works wonders. My hair is left soft, shiny and full of bounce. But don't use too much -- a few sprays around your head, and then a few with your hair flipped over does the trick (at least for me).

          I love this stuff. When I run out, I get nervous. I don't mind the stiff, crunchy curls, as long as there's NO FRIZZ :)

          I have tried many products to control my long, dry, frizzy curls. Finally one that works! I have received many compliments on my "new" hairstyle, when all I had to do was spray it on and a few quick scrunches and my hair looks great all day! I would highly recommend this!

          Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray Gel, Strong, 8.5 fl oz:

          This functions as a (much cheaper!) version of Redken's Curl Scrunching Gel. If you use too much, the curls do get crunchy, but use a smaller amount in conjuction with a curl creme, and the results will be beautiful. One of the best curly hair products I've found, salon or drug-store brand.

          Comments about Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray Gel, Strong, 8.5 fl oz:

          If there were a 0 stars option, I would have picked that. I have thick wavy/curly hair that tends to be very frizzy. No matter how much gel I applied, whether on wet or dry hair, using either the pump or my hands, the effect was the same. Every time I ended up with crispy, dried-out, dull looking hair. I much prefer Garnier's Soft Curl Cream.
