For my hair type (4A-4B) I would probably use this more for my protective hair styles, and the Strong Hold Gel for longer lasting defined curls....It’s not heavy so it doesn’t weigh down my curls. The gel doesn’t hold the curls as well as some other gels do but aids in the formation of curls.

Great for extra hold and lower temp on tools...Great, lightweight gel. I used in tandem with the prime and protect and was able to curl my hair at a much lower temp with the same hold (280 vs 350+)...Must have gel without the typical gel crunch feel!...It has great hold for styling, but in a more natural way!
