Customer Reviews:

Great hold for my hair type

I have thick, curly hair and this gel provides excellent hold without making my hair feel crunchy or greasy.

Didn't work for my fine hair

I have fine hair and this gel made it look flat and weighed down. It also left a sticky residue.

Love the scent

The fragrance of this gel is amazing - it's fresh and clean without being overpowering.

Decent hold, but nothing special

This gel works fine for me, but I don't notice any extra body or volume. It's just an average hair gel.

Too sticky and heavy

This gel was difficult to apply evenly and left my hair feeling sticky and weighed down. It also made my scalp feel itchy.

Might work for some, not for me

This gel didn't provide enough hold for my thick, straight hair, but it might work better for someone with a different hair type.

Product Summary:

The Paul Mitchell Extra Body Sculpting Gel is a light, non-flaky gel that enhances body and shine while providing a light hold. It boasts a refreshing fragrance, combining fruity and floral notes with undertones of citrus and jasmine. This gel is particularly beneficial for fine or thin hair, as it can add volume and create the appearance of thicker hair.

Its thick, creamy texture allows for easy application through the hair, offering a strong hold without leaving any sticky residue or creating a crunchy texture. Priced between $10 and $20, it's well-suited for fine and thin hair types. The gel is durable, capable of maintaining its hold for up to two months. It washes out easily and can be combed through quickly for effortless styling, leaving no residue or buildup for simple maintenance. However, users should apply the gel sparingly; overuse can weigh down fine hair and lead to white flakes or stickiness. A small amount is sufficient for effective use.
