Best thing about this gel is that it does not make the hair look wet. This gel is completely invisible. Great for windy days. I've tested it in some pretty strong winds and was shocked to see that my hair stayed in place perfectly, and still looks naturally dry.

i always need a gel to use when i straighten my hair to keep it straight and resistant to humidity throughout the day. so i decided to give this product a try, mostly because i like the smell of herbal essences products and it was on sale. and honestly, it doesn't even feel like a gel at all. i put it through my hair once, twice, three or four times throughout the day (tiny amounts), and it still has no effect on my hair. maybe makes it softer and smoother to the touch, but doesn't give me the "hold" i want. i would probably label this as a "smoothing jelly", not a "max hold gel".

Holds well for curly hair

By Naomi34

from Minneapolis, MN, USA

Comments about Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel, 6 oz:

My husband loves this gel best on his hair. The max hold is great for thick, curly hair. Can't seem to find it in stores anymore though. Can I buy it in bulk somewhere?

Curly Hair, Don't Care

By happyhannah31

from Undisclosed

Comments about Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel, 6 oz:

I have naturally thick wavy/curly hair that gets frizzy a lot. This gel is literally the only thing that makes it look great! I use it after I shower with damp hair and then scrunch it! Best product in the world! I ususally buy 5 bottles at a time!

has no "max" nor does it "set" anything "up"

By Basboosa

from Undisclosed

Comments about Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel, 6 oz:

Does keep hair shiny, Instructions don't say for curly hair- hair type not mentioned. I have thin, straight hair I wear in a pixie. I want some volume and some parts to lay down. It doesn't do either.

    Comments about Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel, 6 oz:

    I use this gel right after I apply the Nutri-Ox Step 2 treatment for thinning hair for everyday styling when I shampoo and condition my hair. I vigorously towel dry it first. Also, if my hair is askew after I get out of bed, I dampen my hair and add some of the gel. This helps my hair lay down correctly when I use the hair dryer to style it. If I let my hair dry before styling, it looks like it's still wet and it's stiff from the gel. This is eliminated when I use the blow dryer to style it. I use Nutri-Ox products for shampoo and conditioner, plus their Step 2 treatment for thinning hair. These are purchased at a salon retail store, but I have never found any styling product that works as well as the Herbal Essenses "Set-me-up" gel or hairspray.

    A great hold, no residue, use it on curly hair

    By curly10

    from New Hampshire

    Comments about Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel, 6 oz:

    Even though I also use totally twisted I find this good hold gel holds my curls nicely in shape. I put it on hair that is pretty wet with some conditioner in it and I get nice curls. Both are getting harder to find. Hope they are not discontinuing it!
