My hair is long, dark, dry, previously damaged and on its slow journey to recovery. Blow drying and heat stylers are my hair's nemesis and I try to avoid them. However there are times that the hair needs some styling and this product is great on my hair. It puts a shield and I can definitely feel it doing a great job. My hair doesn't feel affected by the heat styling with a thin layer of this gel.
I liken this product to a half wax, half hair spray product with just the right amount of hold to give me that slightly 'piece-y, lived in hair' look. It finishes matte and creates texture in my medium-length straight hair without weighting it down or turning it greasy, and is perfect for soft up do's needing that little bit of hold.
