I use a small quarter size on my damp/wet hair to style, it does not cause too much build up, and I only need to use this 1 product! I typically use to use a frizz serum, mousse/gel, and hairspray, which if you have curly hair, you know leaves a ton of buildup! This 1 product is a 1 for all and I love it! The next day I just use a spray bottle to dampen my hair and I am set for the day, no need to add additional product! Well worth the money and lasts a long time!!
