I personally wouldn't buy this product again. It doesn't hold the curl like it says. I use this product on my sew-in hair which is 100% HUMAN HAIR. I notice I get more tangles using the product and it does have a better smell than most. I wanted to try it because i thought it would be better for my hair since I get multiple uses out of it and wanted something that had an all day effect.
Product 2: Aussie Instant Freeze Extreme Hold Cost: around 3:00 with tax at Walmart
My experience: This has been the best hair holding spray i've found to hold my curl. It doesn't tangle and it leaves the memory in the sew-in to the extent that if I go to sleep and place my hair in a pony tail and wrap it in a ball. I still have some the curl from the previous day retained and it still looks thick and curly. I typically style with the big barrel iron for volume and to get that extra sexy. I love this hair spray and more than likely won't try anything else. It doesn't tangle my sew-in hair which is important. It pretty much keeps the hair in place. HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE GIVING IT A TRY.

Product 3: Organics Root Stimulator Edge Control Cost: 5:49 at the Asian Hair Supply Store
My experience: One of my friends recommended Edge Control since I don't get relaxers on my edges and couldn't make it to the beautician due to school. My natural hair is a mixture of kinky in some areas and wavy in others. I do have to use a generous amount in certain areas. It does give you a fresh relaxer look but it is thick and I don't like the spread of it. I feel like at first it gives you the desired look you won't but I'm not a huge fan of putting gels, glue type substances, and etc in my hair. I don't recommend it for all day use - I feel that you will need to touch it up if you plan on being out all day. I use this product maybe 5 times a month. I have actually used it to help blend my hair with my sewin hair if I was doing a straight look. I feel it is great for that. This is not something that I personally wouldn't buy again but I did like the look.
