Customer Reviews:

Great Hold

I love how this taffy gives my hair a great hold without making it feel stiff or sticky. It also adds a nice texture to my hair that I really like.

Difficult to Apply

I found this taffy really difficult to apply evenly through my hair. It kept clumping up and making certain sections of my hair look greasy and weighed down.

Nice Scent

This taffy has a really nice scent that isn't overpowering. It's a subtle, fresh scent that I really enjoy.

Works Okay

This taffy works okay for me. It's not amazing, but it's not terrible either. It gives me some texture and hold, but I've definitely used products that work better.

Leaves Residue

I noticed that this taffy leaves a lot of residue on my hands and in my hair. It's really difficult to wash out and makes my hair look dirty and greasy.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this taffy. On the one hand, it does add some texture and hold to my hair. On the other hand, it's difficult to apply evenly and leaves a lot of residue. I'm not sure if I'll buy it again.
