    I've tried probably 10-15 different hair creams. I tend to go for the semi-short semi-messy looking style, a little spikey and kinda erradic. So far this is the only product that doesn't make my hair shiney, doesn't leave residue, and doesn't dry crunchy. It leaves your hair with a somewhat natural feel, although it is a tad bit sticky. If you're a fan of the crunchy look, you won't like this. If you want a more natural look, you'll love it.

    I've seen a few reviews saying it doesn't spready easy or clumps... YOU'RE PUTTING IT IN WRONG! You can't put this in like normal gel. Follow these directions for perfect application:

    1. Wash hair.
    2. Let hair dry, and apply IMMEDIATELY after hair dries - don't let your natural oils rebuild. This is a very small window of about 5 minutes.
    3. For short hair scoop a ball with the diameter of a nickel, more for more hair.
    4. Rub FAST between your hands (make sure they're clean and water/lotion free), generating heat to the product and making it pliable.
    5. Lightly run hands over hair, texturizing by mostly applying to the tips of your hair and letting natural groupings form. no need to apply to the roots - applying to the outside half of your hair will hold perfectly.
    6. Periodically rub hands together to reapply product.

    If you follow these steps you'll see no white clumps, unevenness and you'll have a better hold overall.

    I bought this after reading the reviews and have to say I was very disappointed. Even using just a little bit it left my hair very greasy feeling and looking and didn't add any of the texture or body promised. I have very fine, short hair. I used this product once and tossed it in a drawer. Mighty expensive "trial" I might add!! Why don't these companies, seriously, produce "sample packs" - I can't tell you how many hair products I try and toss because they don't perform as advertised!

              My barber uses this product so I thought I'd give it a try. My hair is straight and thick. The product was very tough to blend in. Also, the fragrance is too strong for me.

              I've looked around and haven't been able to find anything better. It keeps my hair under control, isn't crunchy or shiny. I wish it didn't rub off so easily so that I could wear a hat or put sunglasses on my head without them getting gunked up, but perhaps that's an impossible request. Overall, very happy.

                I really like the fiber, use it on my haird daily. It allows for decent hold, makes hair seem thicker and does not give you a that wet look a lot of gels do.

                      I have used this stuff for years, ever since my hairstylist recommended it and used it on me. It does a great job of holding your hair in place and works well on damp or dry hair.

                      It's a bit heavy so use sparingly and it might not work well for you if you hair is super oily or greasy.
