May be unfair for me to review - -
 February 22, 2011
"My hair's very naturally curly and long. I'm in Key West with the humidity, so it takes something very hefty to keep my hair from becoming frizzy. This doesn't do it, no matter how much I put on. It gives my curls no definition and in no time, I'm just a fuzzhead. I'm trying to change all my products to non-toxic so am experimenting. This one failed the test, but as I said in the title - my case is extreme. Others may love it."

Too heavy for fine hair
 January 20, 2011
"I like the natural ingredients but it just didn't do the job for my fine hair, as it was weighed down and coated. Maybe better for thick hair."

exactly what I was looking for
 December 20, 2010
"I know some folks have not reviewed this product very highly but it all depends on what you are looking for. I wanted a product that was natural, not tested on animals, not sticky feeling or stiff when dry, and provided just a little extra hold to my limp hair. This product fits that bill. If you are looking for a lot of hold look elsewhere. I love the fact that it leaves my hair still feeling soft. I don't use the sprayer directly on my hair but spray the product into my hand, then rub my hands together and apply that way."

DON'T USE AS DIRECTED
 September 2, 2010
"BWC Spray Gel is THE BEST hair styling (hold) product I've ever used. BUT I must say that it's best to open the spray container and pour about the size of a quarter in your hand and rub your hands together then apply it to your hair. I say this because like a lot of spray gels it's too think to form a "spray" but shoots out like a stream. Good Luck because THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT!!"

We love this gel!
 July 13, 2010
"I agree that the gel gets clogged up in the nozzle and this is frustrating. However, as for the product itself, it works great! I put it on my hair when wet then style or spray on and let dry for a stronger hold without gross feeling like hair spray or mousse. My hubby puts it on his hair and lets it dry for an all day shiny, spikey and hold. There is no smell either - chemicals, perfume or otherwise!"

Poor packaging
 October 12, 2009
"The product is just ok. The packaging is awful. This is a fairly thick gel, and it does not come out of the spray nozzle. Terrible design for this product and it makes it practically useless. If you do manage to get some out, the results are just ok. *Maybe* adds a little volume, but that's about it. I would never purchase again."
