Overall the experience was not good. When I order the gel, I expected to wait for a week for it to get here. It ended up being about 3 weeks. That is too long for 1 item. Please fix your distribution center or something because I want to support, but not if it’s going to take that long.
First I would like to acknowledge that I didn't use the gel the proposed way, with the leave in, because the leave in is rich and creamy and could cause the gel not to adhere as well, so I went about my typical process of double gelling with a base slimy or gooey botanical gel then going on top with a gel like this that has polymers in it. I used the gel for three weeks and the first week it was amazing, with strong hold and moisture. The weeks following that the gel left my hair over moisturized, gooey, gummy, and moist. The humidity or just the product combo itself is too humectant rich for my hair. I will try this gel by itself and I will see how it goes!
