5.0 out of 5 stars New name for this product is "Hemp Curl Defining Gel Lotion." 23 July 2013
By Tony Polito - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This product is discontinued & the reformulated replacement product is called "Alterna Hemp Curl Defining Gel Lotion." And it's not as good. It smells different, not too awfully bad, but the older product smelled better. It doesn't work nearly as well (YMMV). Not awful but not good either. So basically, it's been reformulated, and for the worse. The old stuff was really, really good!

Now it comes in a 4.2oz tube. Versus the 5.1oz tube for the older product. (That's an obscured 20% price hike). It is not available in the 10.1oz pump bottle, as was the older product.

More corporate nonsense. You have a product that sells well and customers love. So the brainless greedy marketing suits try to figure out how to cheapen it -- while also raising the price -- while creating a new "image" for the product to attract additional customers. The result will be, of course, loss of customers and loss of sales. The old customers won't like the cheapening of it and staring trying out other products. From other companies.

And that's IF they can even figure out what the replacement product IS so they can try it. All the vague flowery verbiage prevalent in the beauty industry these days doesn't make it easy to figure out what product does what - or what product supposedly replaces what. It took me over an hour to figure out this is the replacement/reformulation. By doing everything, including comparing labeled ingredients and MSDS's. Meanwhile there are gobs of people over on eBay who don't even KNOW there is a replacement product paying a King's ransom to get the last bottles of the older product left on planet Earth. And some of that ebay vintage product is probably counterfeit, of course.

Anyway, anyway, anyway ... my main objective is to make sure that people who liked the older product know the name of the new product ... so they can find it ... and try it out.

BY THE WAY: Alterna makes much of it's "pure & natural" products, branding their product lines Bamboo, Hemp, Caviar, etc. In fact at their website it says " ... these precious, sustainable ingredients deliver pure, powerful benefits. And what we leave out of our products is just as important as what we put in .." That too is marketing jibberish. Just take a look at the ingredients listed on the back of their products (as required by law). Nothing but the usual suspects -- chemicals spelled using 45 or more letters and numbers. Somewhere at bottom - since ingredients must be listed in order of volume - they'll be a line item acknowledging the trivial amount of "pure" ingredient that allows them to legally make their marketing claims.

UPDATE: The new product is definitely worse. Old product, an application in the morning and I was good for hold through all night at the club. New product, on at 8am, total lack of control before 5pm, like I never put it on at all. On personal recommendations and tons of positive Amazone reviews, I switched onto Redken Rewind Pliable Styling Paste, 5-Ounce Jar. It's even better than the original Alterna product. Superior and more accurate hold. Smells wonderful. I find the morning application has to be refreshed by say 10pm or so. Only comes in the jar, no bottles/pumps. And when you dab it out with your fingers, you have to be careful to be neat, as it tends to be quite "stringy." Give it a try.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best Products for Maintaining moisture, body & curl 22 Feb. 2012
By Caroline MacDougall - Published on Amazon.com

I've used this product in my fine, fly-away hair for several years now. It is the best at adding control and maintaining curl for those of us with hair that needs some help maintaining moisture and shape. I've bought other products including Redken's Curl Refiner and none of them are as good as Alterna's Texturizing Glaze. I have lots of partly used bottles that I've abandoned to return to this product time & again. I put it on after wetting my hair in the shower and towel drying it. You can then blow dry or air dry and if you want curl, just scrunch your hair as it dries or do like I do - hang your head upside down and blow dry with a diffuser to create body or clip it up all over your hear with tiny clips to crimp the curls in place until they dry in the air. My son believes hemp will save the world and I believe it saves my hair everyday!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great product, hideous dispenser 16 Nov. 2013
By Sybil MT - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I used this product on my curls for years and loved it. When they switched from the tube to this style of bottle I felt like I only got 50% of the product out of the bottle. I would spend a lot of time pounding the bottle upside down (with the pump removed) to try to get more out, and it was really frustrating and felt wasteful. I haven't found anything as good for my curls, but refuse to support a product with such a wasteful bottle.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 4 May 2011

Hemp Texturizing Glaze was recommended to me by a hairdresser originally. After difficulty finding it locally I ordered it from Amazon. The cost was less than the original tube I purchased from the hairdresser. After trying several different types and brands of glazes and texturizers, I have found this one to be the best at styling hair without a hair dryer and allowing my hair to maintain a soft instead of a stiff look. It only takes a little of the cream to work.

5.0 out of 5 stars curls curls curls 4 Sept. 2008
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This is the BEST curl definer I've ever used! I've tried high end brands, medium, and discount products, but this works the best. I have lots of hair so I had to play around with the amount, but after that, it's been lustrous curls since. I can even air dry and not get frizzies! Your curls look healthier and my husband says my hair is soft too.... no build up. The "pump" just adds to my convenience, now I want pumps in all my bottles.
