        Terribly overpriced considering it performed no better than a drug store product.

            Years ago my hair stylist recommended it for body. When we relocate and I go to a new stylist, I carry it to my appointment. I have converted many stylists and they use it for other customers.

                      I was looking for something to keep my husband's hair nice and slicked back like he's been wanting. So I got this and just used a little bit and it works great, keeps the hair in place and smells good too! He's got thick hair as well so it's great to find something that keeps it where he wants it without it feeling hard.

                        I have very long curly hair. I use this after using the Sebastian Whipped Creme mousse, when it goes on it feels sticky but dries very light, leaving your hair soft and not very "crispy" like a lot of mousses out there.
