It didn't give the expected result, but it gave a different result that I never thought possible for my hair, so it still gets 5 stars for surprising me. I have strange fine but curly hair, which makes it do nothing but frizz. It won't wave or curl, just frizz. If I straighten it, it only lasts a few hours (even by professionals). I found some other stuff that let me embrace my curls, and that's all my hair would do (other than sit in a ponytail), and only with that stuff. But, it's no longer on the market, so I tried this. It didn't do the same thing, and actually made my curls go away, but left me with old Hollywood soft big waves. I put this stuff in when wet, let it sit, ran a sleeking brush through it, and voila! Happy to have a new style after so many years of suffering. NO FRIZZ!
