    Comments about Kms California Hair Stay Styling Gel:

    I used to buy this at the salon I frequented. When I stopped that salon, I couldn't find this anywhere. I tried so many other products. Nothing compared. Greasy, stiff, residue. I was so happy to stroll in to Ulta and see this again. Now I can really say it is the BEST I've found. So easy to use, I use to hold damp hair in place, or to hold sides of dry hair in place. Great to have hair held in place when I want to add a little bit of spray for solid hold too!

            this is great for adding body and a little "umph" to short straight hair. Clean and not real gummy. I have used it for years.

              Comments about Kms California Hair Stay Styling Gel:

              I have honestly been using this product for 30+ years, ever since a stylist used it on my hair when I was a teenager! I've seen packaging changes, prices increase (still definitely worth every cent), but best of all, its now much more widely available. My hair is not quite shoulder length and pretty fine and I apply this gel to the just the roots when it's towel dried. It's never too heavy, like some gels weigh your hair down, and its not sticky nor does it dry out my hair like alcohol based products often do. Its the perfect amount of hold, regardless of if I let my hair air dry or decide to blow dry. I'm surprised that some reviewers disliked the (fresh and pleasant)scent. For a product to stay around for over 3 decades and still get kudos, what does that tell you?! And I am NOT one to write reviews, but this deserves one. You won't be disappointed with any KMS products!

                  Apply to roots only after towel-drying still damp hair. This gives lift to lazy hair. I've used this stuff since the days of big hair. Really works well for flat hair.

                  Good for roots NOT ends.

                    This works good if kept on the roots. I originally spread it thoughtout my wet hair - from roots to tips. It dried out the tips and they were hard to style - kind of stiff'ish. Now I only massage it into the roots of my wet hair and it gives them body and lift and I can style my hair easily. Don't use A LOT if blow drying and styling. If styling and drip dry - this will work well for all over use.
