I have very (and I mean very) thick unruly wavy hair that is super curly on the nape of my neck. No stylist can get my hair to "go curly" in a style, most matter what is tried. This is the only product I have found that works to define some curls without making my hair greasy/oily or weighing it down. I use 1 or 2 pumps for my entire head of hair (to my shoulders). If I used what others recommend, I WOULD have oily, weighed down hair. Give this a try - there is no odor, no lasting evidence, just nicely formed curls that hold shape. I am 52 and growing my grey out, which is proving to be even MORE curly, so I am excited to finally see if I can keep a curlier/wavy style day to day. I keep scrunching my hair as it air dries (like I would with any product) but again, this one is the only one that works so far and I am thrilled I found it!
