I have been using this gel for about 3 months now and I love the way it smells! I actually used it on one of my children's hair and his preschool teacher asked me what I used! I like that it's lightweight and yet it helps with volume! It doesn't really hold as well as I would like, but it does give me the volume I was going for. This gel makes me feel like I'm treating myself to something nice! I think it's a bit pricey, but it also has lasted a long time, so it's one of those things that if you don't buy it all the time (since it lasts long), it's not too bad on the wallet! It also helps with shine, it doesn't make my hair look oily, and instead it makes my hair look shiny and healthy! I recommend this because I feel like it also makes my hair softer once it dries, or once I use a blow drier to dry my hair. When I think of the brand Redken, I think of great hair, and that's what I've been able to achieve!
