I am a huge fan of the smell of all Curlsmith products. I really wanted to love this product as I needed some good quality gel with strong hold. However, this gel dried my hair a little and was too sticky. I could feel the product on my hair even after it dried. In addition, the hold wasn't extraordinary. I have tried some gels with better hold and slip. I much preferred the Curlsmith suffle over this one even though it had softer hold.
