I've tried many products that make the claims that this one does, but this is the first that lived up to its promises. It both defined & held my natural curls without that stiff, sprayed appearance. Use SPARINGLY--too much & your hair will get a case of those dreaded "crunchies". I was about to give up on sprays of this type, since they always gave me that awful plastic look, & when used sparingly, didn't work at all. This product, however, made the grade. If you need to apply to a smaller section of hair, such as the curls that might fall around your face when the bulk of your hair is in a barrette or something, dispense product into your hand 1st, then scrunch into hair. Yes, that'll make your hand sticky, but better to have a sticky hand that you can easily cleanse with soap & water, than to have sticky icky hair.

I followed the directions and sprayed it on dry hair. After that, you're suppossed to blow dry it for 1 minute to avoid tackiness. As soon as I sprayed it on my hair, it got hard. I didn't even get a chance to blow dry it because it was already hard. Tried to comb out the hardness but it was very difficult. I was able to curl my hair but I could not run my fingers thru the curls or comb or brush them. because they were so hard. The only thing I could do is leave them alone or wet my hair. I would not buy this again.

    I have tried for months to find a replacement for the discontinued Nioxin Root Lifter and this product comes closer to it than the other 8 products I have tried. It dries quickly and adds body which improves the heat-curled hold.

        I use this after shampooing and before drying. It gives my hair that little extra "oomph" so my curls (a la the curling iron)are bouncy and shiny and hold all day long.

          I use this and root lift after my shampoo. Then I air dry my hair (when I can) and I end up with beautiful curls that last all day, even in muggy weather.

            I've been looking for a heat activated setting lotion (for lack of a better term) so when I use my curling iron on my stick-straight hair I don't have to fry it to get it to create a strong curl. I'm very happy with this product. It does just exactly what I wanted.

                I really didn't like this spray because it was very sticky, as if I was using hairspray. I used this once and ended up tossing it the garbage. Definitely won't buy this again.

                  I have straight as a stick hair and wear it in a bob. Using this product with my heated rollers gives me just enough bend at the ends to get the style I like. I especially like that you apply this to dry hair since I do not wash my hair daily.
                  Holds even in humid weather. I haven't found a better product -- at any price point.

                  I just wanted a heat/hair protector that gave a little body and bounce to my hair after using my curling iron. Unfortunately, this product is way too strong and in fact glued my hair together. Trying to comb or brush it out was painful, uncomfortable and I lost way too much hair in the process. I will never buy this product again.

                      On dry hair: my hair is fine, has uneven wave & body, I brush and style with blow dryer (I don't straighten), then I mist with this product and scrunch a bit and it gives loose waves and hold without weighing down, almost like using a a soft hair spray to style, creates body, texture and hold, soft gloss.. Use on damp hair: with a diffuser or scrunch with your hand while blow drying, creates waves esp. on damp days..This works like no other product, hard to find in stores, even though it sprays like a pump hairspray.
