Good stuff but not for me

Comments about Redken Hardwear 16:

Really like this gel for my super fine, soft and lifeless hair. However it gave me an itchy scalp. If you are not sensitive definitely try it.

      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.

            My son wanted it because the hair dresser used it on him and recommended. IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE!

            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!
