A strong-hold gel for people with extremely sensitive skin and noses! It will definitely enhance wave and curl patterns - but may dry too crunchy and stiff for some. I would use this gel more often if the stem of the pump hadn't broken after 2 uses when I dropped it on the floor.It has not given me any problems with my sensitive skin, nor does it weigh down my fine hair. No bells and whistles - just a strong-hold gel. I like it layered over flaxseed gel or aloe vera gel to soften the hold. If you don't like humectants in your hair gel - try Free & Clear gel.
