I have to start by saying I have hard to manage hair. I typically get out of the shower, put leave-in conditioner in, and then let it air dry for 20 to 30 minutes. I haven't found products that work with my naturally curly hair. Most products make my hair look greasy immediately. I've even tried the more expensive brands. The only way I can wear my hair down is if I spend nearly 90 minutes blow drying and flat ironing my hair. And seriously, who has time for that? With that being said, I didn't have much confidence in this sprunch spray. Boy was I wrong. (And I'm an attorney...so I HATE admitting when I am wrong!!). I got out of the shower, towel-dried my hair, and used my leave-in conditioner (which is actually more of a frizz-reducing liquid serum than a creme). After that, I immediately used this scrunch spray. I flipped my head over to get the underside of my head, and picked up the top half of my hair to be sure to get the mid-section of hair. My biggest fear was that I would either a) use too much product, or b) watch my hair continue to grow in size as it dried. However, I have rather thick and lengthy hair, so I was more afraid of b). Once I was done spraying my hair, I used my hands to "set" my curls and adjust my hair before the spray "dried." I am so happy to say that my hair never a) looked like I used too much (or any!!!) product, or b) grew larger as it dried! This is by far the best product on the market for curly haired girls! This is now my go-to product, and I'll make sure I always have some on hand!!
