I have been struggling to find something for my curls, creams seem to weigh down my curls and mouse isn't enough. I am loving this product. Day 1 isn't amazing for me but day 2-4 are really nice, honestly the best I've had. I have not had any flaking. only thing I would change would be the fragrance, it is pretty strong.

I really wanted to love this product because all the others are great. Unfortunately, when it dries the amount of flaking is unbelievable. I would not recommend.

I got this for a wash and go. I love the way my curls turned out from the product. I have low porosity 4b to 4c hair. I didn't like how fragrant it is. A week later and I can still smell the strong fragrance. It only bothers me because it's not a natural scent. Also the consistency was a bit runny. That could be why it was on clearance when I got it. I also didn't like how it became flaky after a couple of days.

I’m so disappointed! I LOVE ME SO MRS. TARAJI HENSON!! I wanted to support her HEAVILY. I have natural straight hair. And i have major baby hair fly away and I thought this could be used to keep the edges in tact plus a strong hold for my baby hairs.. BUT AS SOON AS MY HAIR DRIED IT TURNED FLAKY AND THE HOLD BLEW… I had flaky hair and fly ways sticking straight-up on the top of my head. This product was a DUD. Didn’t work, didn’t live up to it’s reputation. IM SAD.

The first time I used this product I thought it was great but when I woke up the next day, my hair was covered in white flakes. The description on the jar clearly states that this product "never crumbles or flakes" but that is obviously a lie. It took like 20 minutes to get all those flakes out of my hair. Definitely do not recommend!!!

i have 4c dreadlocks and i tried to use this on my edges like it said it can be used for but it just didnt work. Its amazing for defining but not for your edges... still on the lookout for an edge control.

I only use this gel now. Compared to other gels I use for twist/braid outs, this gel keeps my 4A-4B hair tamed! I love using it and will keep this as a staple for a while.

Saw Taraji using her hair product line on Instagram and since I’m a fan of hers and a natural hair product junkie, I figured I would give one of her products a try. Personally , I like this one. A little bit goes a long way as someone else said. And yes, there is a slight cologne smell but overall, it’s not something that would deter me from buying again. I would say it’s worth a try at least.

Before buying this product I did a lot of research that truly made me so afraid to buy anything out of this hairline ... It was hard but I looked pass all the negative reviews that where out there and tried TPH hairline and all I have to say is wow ...I’m so happy that I didn’t allow the fear of a persons review to Discourage me from buying this product .....It’s so hard to find a really good hair product at an affordable price ....Thank you so much for such a wonderful hair product that we all can afford ......please keep working hard at making more amazingly affordable hair product that’s good for all hair .....

love love love This gel so!!''Tough Cookie" has helped me maintain my hair and execute my hairstyles neatly opposed to me using ego styling gel which feels watery. I am a person who normally styles my hair in just braids and I like how light the gel is on my hair but secure at the same time.

I love this!! It’s a light weight gel, it tends to flake but that’s if you put too much. I love that this doesn’t dry my hair. It’s definitely worth a try. I’m very happy with this. It smells wonderful and works like a charm!

I wanted to love this as much as I loved the shampoo and conditioner, but...NO. It is very light and fluid, but I have never had any gel make as many flakes as this one did, in less than 24 hours. Issa no.
