    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".

      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!

      This is the only product I will use on my hair and the only product that i trust, not a lot of stores carry it anymore, therefore they better not be discontinuing it because it is honestly the ONLY product that I've found to make my hair perfect*

      Favorite gel for warm weather

      By Lemon

      from Undisclosed

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

      I have fine curly hair (& a lot of it) and have tried tons of different gels over the years. This is, hands down, my favorite for warm weather (which is the majority of the year here). It does dry crunchy, but the crunch easily scrunches out, and it gives me great hold, bounce, and shine. I love it! And the price is right! Please don't ever stop making this gel, I love it!

      I Found My Holy Grail!!

      By SuzyQ

      from Undisclosed

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

      I have very fine curly hair. The Set Me Up gel has the right amount of hold to keep my curls formed nicely, and it eliminates frizz--ALL DAY! While it is a little crunchy when dry, it is easily scrunched out, leaving my hair soft and bouncy. I've tried other gels that claim to have a max hold of 10, but there is no comparison. I LOVE this gel!

      This gel never gets flaky and it doesn't make your hair crunchy. It did hold all day and it had a very nice scent which made me want to use it again.

      By elizabetharamos

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

      Okay so I have been using gel all my life and I tried teh shampoos and conditioner for Herbal essences I was sold so I tried this Set me up gel and OMG it is bad once it is dry and u touch it, it will turn white yes your hair is flaky with white stuff. I wish I can get my money back I guess I just will stay with the shampoo and Conditioner only. The gel it is just not working. I can by the $1.00 or $2.00 gel and I have never had this problem.
