Most Helpful Positive Review Best gel for over 20 years!!
This is the BEST go-to everyday gel. I was introduced to this product when I was 11 years old. I get my curls from my Dad, and my mom has super fine straight.. needless to say, I walked around for years with a rats nest on the top of my head.. until my curly headed aunt came home from LA. She was aghast, "We (my other curly aunts) need to help this poor child!" She gave me the rest of her bottle of Vavoom Forming gel, and here I am 20 years later still using this product. I, like everyone else, have tried $1,000's of other products, but I always find my way back to Vavoom.
Here are a couple tips: this product is a bit slimy, so really work it into the grain of the hair. You should work it in until your hair feels smooth and coated. Either air dry, or diffuse. This can dry a little crunchy, so I like to "relax" the product, by lightly squeezing my dry hair. Doing this will create really controlled curls that look soft, but NO FRIZZ. I adore this gel.
Most Helpful Critical Review disappointment
Really wanted to like this! I've got very fine hair but lots of it - & it doesn't hold curl or volume for the most part. Unfortunately this didn't do much for me. I used it on damp hair, blow dry then straighten. Made my hair staticky when brushed or combed and weighed it down a bit. Dang it!

Matrix Hold My Body Forming Gel
Sandy from Canton, Ohio
I use this product everyday. I've been using this product for years, best product out there. Holds my natural curls all day, makes hair soft, shiny, and frizz free. Does not weigh hair down. GREAT PRODUCT, good job Matrix!!
Soft and shinny
D from Mundelein Il
Use to use this product in high school. Re discovered it and tried it again because I do not straighten my hair anymore, I wear it curly. I use it with hair oil in bed head foxy curls. I am so pleased with the result, zero frizz and super shiny. So happy I rediscovered this product
Great for baby fine, flat hair
King from Huntington Beach
Let me start with I have purchased over the many years numerous products to help with my flat, straight thin baby fine hair, most products are too heavy. I'm constantly looking for products, I've spent a lot of money over the years.
I use this product, a small amount, a nickel size, after I spray my roots with Paul Mitchell root lift, so far this seems to be working and holding my style, Finish with Kendra hairspray number 25.
Sprout from Ontario Ohio
I use this every day! Somehow I developed some curl to my hair. This product is the only one that will hold that curl. I have tried others but this does a better job!
Can't get enough

I have been using it for years. Makes my hair look great!
Jojo from The Villages, Florida
My husband and I love this product and use it everyday. Really helps to hold the style.
Taking care of my hair since the early 1990's!
Katco from Front Range Colorado
This is the best styling product I have found for my fine, natural curl blonde hair. When combined with a lightweight holding hairspray, my style stays in place. I can comb my fingers through my hair and let it air dry and maintain my curls, or dry with a diffuser to dry into my work/ dress up style. I love Hold My Body Forming Gel!
Nancy from Fayette, IA
this is best ever, have been using it for years. Doesn't weigh by natural curls down. I can style with a brush as I dry and holds perfectly!
A great product to add body to your hair!
Kath from Utah
I've used this product for years. It's the best I've found for adding body to thin hair! It's easy to use too.
A Must have!
Just Shelly from Southeast Tx
Love it!! It's a little bit thick, but that's ok, bc you can use a little and have a med. hold or use a little more for a stronger hold, your choice. I've tried so many different gels over the years, but ALWAYS have to have this one! Smells good and lasts for a very long time.
Jlee from Jonesborough, TN
I used this gel back in high school and loved it. I got away from it and used cheaper brands and decided to see it worked as well as it did back then and it sure did deliver.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

Boskojulie from Florida
I have used this gel for years. It is very lightweight but, helps with the frizz and Afro. I have thick, long wavy hair and it's difficult to find products that work and this one does.
Long time user.
nancy46 from Bridgeton
Use on damp hair to set my curl. Also use in between washes to tame my style.
😍 love it.
Kay from Southern Texas
After towel drying my hair, i crunch it up with this gel, sometimes adding a drop of oil for extra shine. When dry my curls look defined.
I have used this product for years and love it!
Sam from Bethlehem, Pa
I have used this product for years after shampooing, add a very small amount (nickel size), worked into my baby fine, straight hair gives it enough body during blow drying to add fullness and body pre-styling.
I do not like this product.
ba from Mesquite, TX
I used this product because Ulta was out of Height of Calm by Matrix which I like and have used for years.
I would buy this product again!! Great for curly hair!

After I get out of shower.
Hair care Staple
Susan from Yakima
I use this product daily and have for likely 10 years. It has the consistency of an old product "dippinty do". Works for the hair that needs a little body but not the weight of a heavy product.
My husband loves this gel
None from Austin, Texas
My husband uses this gel and absolutely will not use anything else. Please do not stop carrying it.
