Most Helpful Positive Review Love this gel!
I've been using this gel for years. I ran out a few weeks ago and the big bottle is alway out at my Ulta so I had to get the matrix gel which I will be returning soon. This gel is so easy to use and blends well with other products. I have curly thick hair and it slides right on. It's not heavy...keeps curls looking great and no frizz.
I do top off with a hair spray!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed...not at gel. It is liquid.
Used this product for years. Stock up when on sale, but this last time the product was liquid. Poured out onto my hands. Very disappointed. Sales clerk said they probably changed the formula. They then should change the name.

Product provides good hold. However, when it dries it forms strings/ flakes that appear to be dandruff. I would not recommend for dark hair or with dark shirt.
Great for Curly Crunchy Hair, but Leaves White Flakes
Emily the Curly Girl from Miami, Florida
After applying my leave-in conditioner, I apply this gel to my hair and it leaves a super strong cast (which I love) and leaves my hair very defined. However, I began to notice that there were white flakes in my hair and thought it was dandruff. After experimenting with my hair routine, I found that the root of my problem (no pun intended) was the gel itself. It was very disappointing because it always left my hair with amazing results, but I never expected these white flakes to appear.
Good to Have if you want the squished wavy look
Sandy from Maryland
I use it after I've wraped my hair in a towel from washing my hair. So it's damp to wet.
Good for curly/wavy hair
ChiefyNJ from Princeton, NJ
Having curly/wavy hair that easily frizzes, it is tough to find products that fight the frizz while not being super stiff. I still have yet to find one that I could rate as perfect, but this one has good hold, not sticky & you don't need to use a lot. I use it on just-washed hair, trying to distribute it evenly, & letting my hair air dry.
I have bought this for several years
Cecilia from Aurora, CO
I have my hair cut short as I wear a helmet while riding my scooter as a main mode of transportation. I can take it off and muss my hair a bit and I am good to go!
I love this product. It really holds your hair!!!!!

final step in my curly hair routine
jenn 1376 from orlando
I see a lot of comments about it being runny, which has not been my experience in the 3 bottles I've purchased so far. it's always been your typical, medium/average consistency gel. I have fine to medium, mostly 3A curls (with a random 2C section), that's somewhat low density. I also live in FL, where humidity is very high, so I need to strong hold gel that has little or no glycerin in it. The protein in this really helps hold curl and keep out humidity. After using a small amount of curl cream, I then use biolage gelee. After that's scrunched in well, I take a small amount of this firm style gel and sort of glaze it over all the curls, being sure the ends are coated. Sometimes I scrunch again, very lightly, after applying this, but sometimes I glaze it over my hair and then leave alone, depending on my curls mood that particular day. lasting hold that "locks in" all the hard work I put into getting my curls to cooperate with me - about to order bottle # 4!
Ok. Not what I expected.

I love this gel. It gives my fine hair lots of volume. I have used this and Paul Mitchell Freeze and Shine hair spray for 25 or 30 years.
Best Product For My Thick Curly Hair
Tammy from Deerfield, IL
I have been using super clean sculpting gel for years. It is the best and only product that can control my frizzy, curly, thick hair. I have tried other "curly hair" products, and even my hair dresser's products but nothing works like this. If it is ever discontinued I will be devastated!!

does have a firm hold, but flaky when combing out hair and the pink hue is interesting
will continue to buy-helps me style my short hair just right

I have been a faithful user of this gel for years!
nonstar62 from Union, NJ
My favorite hair gel, hands down. I've tried others, but this is the one that I always come back to. It has no fragrance and it gets the job done. It's probably a good thing that it is unscented, because I have sensitive skin and I have had to throw away a LOT of hair products because the fragrance and/or lanolin derivatives caused an eczema outbreak on my hands and fingers. I have fine, short, layered hair; and this is not sticky, does not weigh my hair down, and does not make it greasy. If anything, I feel like it adds much needed volume to my style.
ND Linda from ND
I love this product and would not want to be without it. My hair is short, thick and has natural curl. It makes my hair easier to style.
Used the gel for years
Di from Denver
I have very thick ,curly hair. This takes it.
This continues to be my standby, old reliable!
Michael from Phoenix AZ
I've used this for years, and as a guy who had unruly thick wavy hair and who has seen it change to still full, but finer in nature, this is still the best product for both! My hair would frizz and this always calmed without creating an immovable helmet. And with just a little water on the hands it reactivates perfectly, all day. I've still found nothing that combines the control with the weightlessness and appearance of hardly anything being used. Just a great product.
Best Gel Ever!
Val from St. Louis Park
I'm so grateful this gel still exists. It is the only gel that actually works well in any weather for my hair. It's as if it was specially designed just for my hair type!
I would buy this part again and again

Not that Great!
Yogi the Bear from Texas
I have fine hair, but this doesn't really work for me. I was hoping i would get a fuller look, but by the end of the day my hair is still flat, especially with humidity.
