Cons

    • Curly Hair

    Comments about Redken Hardwear 16:

    I use biolage gel as a base gel and then put this gel on top. Holds my curls perfectly on very humid days. It never flakes off when dry like other gels. It does make your hair crunchy, but works!

      This product is not for me. It made my hair feel like straw. I could not get the hair brush through my hair to blow dry it. I returned it.

          Too Sticky

          By taylor93

          from Wichita

          Comments about Redken Hardwear 16:

          As others have said, this made my hair feel like straw. It made it feel very unhealthy! The gel itself is VERY sticky, and I definitely can't run my fingers through it like others have said. Plus, it smells like sunscreen. My hair does look more scrunched, but it's not worth it!
