I have thick, sort of course hair that is between wavy and curly (short sides medium/short length on top). I am looking for something that gives a little shine, but has quite a strong hold. This product doesn't seem to dry up in my hair, even after rubbing it into my hair alot or touching my hair throughout the day - good! However, It gives practically no hold whatsoever, and is uselesss when applied to damp hair. I do use Hairbond Designer and that has served me quite well for what I'm looking for but often dries up in my hair when my hair is slightly longer. Overall this product is deffinately not worth the price, as the previous review says, you can get things that do the same for much cheaper. But, it doesnt seem to contain silicones which is good, and it doesn't dry up (sometimes appears a bit greasy though) , so make the decision. Is it worth the risk for your hair type?
