Most Helpful Positive Review I love this product...have used it for years.
After I wash my hair.
Most Helpful Critical Review Too Sticky
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!
Reviewed by 115 customers Tried to replace Redken 06 thickening lotion
Tmpc from Naples California
I am upset Redken discontinued the 06 Thickening lotion so I am trying everything to replace it! This is okay at least it doesn't smell but it does not really do the lifting job I am after
I purchase this product regularly.
George from Blackwood NJ
Excellent product I use on my hair daily.

Add product to a little water in your palms to dilute a little before applying to hair.

Best Hair Gel

I like to use this once my hair is dry. It holds it in place just as good as hairspray does.
Pat from Chicago IL
Not at all happy with this product and won't buy again
Not expensive because you only use a very minimal amount.
Deb from Edwards, IL
I really like this product. Smells good too.
Love this stuff. I have really thick hair; works great.
fleurdiva from Carson City
In my hair (DUH). Firm hold, but a bit sticky!
lb from St. Augustine, Fl
this product works to control friss, but it is very sticky. It does add shine to your hair, but the gel hold seems to disappear in a few hours.
Ericswife from Blue Ridge
When Kenra discontinued my favorite strong hold gel I bagan the hunt for a new one. I grabbed this one with high hopes and I LOVE it! I use this product with a strong hold mouse to control my curls. What I like to do is apply product and let air dry. I then break up the "cast" once dry. This product helps keep my curls from forming a tighter pattern. It kind of "locks in" the style I'm air drying too. It also gives my hair some grit, which I like.
I definitely will buy again. The product came fast too.
Amanda from Vermilion oh
I use it in wet hair before drying, every morning.
This gel is awesome! It keeps my hair in place all day!
Mom of Pirates and Princesses from Roanoke, VA
I put a very small amount on to my wet hair, then style!
I do buy this hardware again and again!
Sally from IL
I have short thick hair and can wash and go, especially with hardware #16. Keeps my hair fixed in a carefree look all day.
Always loved Hardware

Being using this for years and hoping Redken will continue making this product
Great product, but I wish it didn't flake!
4N6 Gurl from Phoenix, AZ
I am a Black female with a short hair cut and my stylist and I use this gel to mold my hair prior to styling. The gel definitely holds, but it also leaves flakes. If you have lighter colored hair, it's fine, but with darker hair it's a pain. Even after washing my hair, flakes are still present.
I loveeeeee this gel !!
Breeeeeeee from New York
I loveeeeeeeeeeeee this product. This is my fav gel ever!! To me there's nothing better. The hold is amazing!! I only* use this product when my hair is in some sort of bun. I wash my hair once a week this gel basically last the full week with min touch ups.
Best hair gel I've ever used
Val from Huntsville Al
Use it while hair is damp and scrunch while blow drying hair
