        Comments about Rusk Radical Crème Thickening and Texturizing Crème:

        I have fine, medium length, curly-to-wavy hair and have tried numerous products that promise to add volume and/or texture, but few actually live up to the promise. Either they don't work at all or the results are short-lived. This product actually delivers! I put a small amount in my towel-dried hair and style as usual (with hair dryer and straightening iron most days) and can't get over how my hair has just the right amount of volume and texture that lasts all day but doesn't feel gritty or tacky. I also use Rush Dry Texture spray to finish the look. Awesome and highly recommended!

          I have been using this product for over 10 years and am no longer able to get it from my hairstylist.
          It works GREAT on wet as well as dry hair (for a quick touch up)

            Comments about Rusk Radical Crème Thickening and Texturizing Crème:

            Love Rusk. This one just isn't right for me. Apply to damp hair, tousle, air dry. This did give my hair a little body while it's usually super straight. However, it really weighed my hair down and got greasy within a couple hours. I tried it again and blow dried it and it was just straight, heavy and greasy instantly. This would probably be good for something like a messy up do on me. Just didn't pull off the effortless "messy" look while down. Just looked like I hadn't washed my hair in 3-4 days. Boo. This would probably be good for someone with thicker hair that already has some body or curl and would need frizz control.

              I have used this product for YEARS, as it was introduced to me by my hairstylist. It is getting harder and harder for me to find it. Ulta usually only has 1 tube of it at a time. Hope it is not being discontinued :(

              Comments about Rusk Radical Crème Thickening and Texturizing Crème:

              I have thick hair that is thin, corse, and wirery. It doesn't like many of the products I buy but the Rusk line seems to help keep it under control. My favorite part is I don't have to use several other products with it to get the results I want.

                    I use a pea size amount of this product to give my thin hair body. I scrunch my hair which brings out more waves and curls and I air dry my hair.
