    Comments about Kms California Hair Play Gel Wax:

    Love, Love, Love this KMS Gel Wax!! I've been using it for years and have tried everything under the sun! Only wish it had a little shine to it....I mix the gel wax with a gloss to get a little shine. Great for textured hair and to tame flyaways and unruly hair.

            Comments about Kms California Hair Play Gel Wax:

            After embracing my glorious gray, the texture of my hair was much softer than when it was colored. I like a piece-y, spiky look, although not stiff and untouchable. This gives the extra texture I need to achieve a fun look in a conservative profession and if I want to go a little more "in touch with my inner wild child" I just add a stiff hairspray and voila! from soft shell to hard shell in seconds.

            Comments about Kms California Hair Play Gel Wax:

            I wash and blow dry my hair. I then add this product sparingly through my hair and again blow dry on low for a couple minutes. Gives great hold and separation for that messy look. It's so easy to use and takes about a dime size of product to do the job. I have no complaints about this and I've been looking for the right product for a long time.
