Giovanni Styling Glue™ Custom Hair Modeler -- 2 oz
Best product for a soft hold on thin hair
This is the best hair gel I have come across.
To respond to the couple reviews of those who don't know what to do with this product, here's how I use it.
I have really thin straight hair, and a lot of it. I don't care for dryers or curling irons, so to give my hair some volume I towel dry it, apply product, then scrunch it constantly, or or loosely clamp it back, till it air dries . I start my very simple style on my heavily layered shoulder length hair, with Giovanni Styling Foam to give it some volume, and follow it up with this Glue. I rub a little between my water damp fingers, so that the product is slippery and thin, and begin by reinforcing my part, I then rub product into my fingers and run them through the sides of my head. To add texture, with dry hands, I twirl some product through random chunks of hair then pinch the ends on the pieces that frame my face. On days when I pull my hair up, I use this to mat down the fly-away's.
I like it because you can control the stiffness of the hold by diluting it with water; it lightly give shape to my hair; and a little bit goes a long way.

This stuff is great! I just cut my hair this summer and needed a product to give me definition, shine and hold. And this is it! I love all the natural ingredients. I could do away with the fragrance as it is a bit strong, but not a bad smell. I like it better than the wax, which is also nice and better for stiffer styles. This is softer.

I got this for my husband because I wanted him to use something more natural. He was using another brand from the salon which has tons of unrecognizable ingredients. I bought this for him to try hoping it will have the same texture and function as his other brand.
He is picky about the products he use so I am thrilled that he like it. On top of it all, this product was less expensive so it is a plus plus for us.

I decided to try this after I tried the Giovanni Magnetic Force Styling Wax which by the way is really good. I was just trying something new. I don't know if it is just me but I couldn't figure out how to use this stuff. It is like elmer's glue and you are supposed to put it into dry hair. I have thick short hair and do need some control, this was not the product for me.

I am very pleased with this paste. It's super sticky and yet slightly greasy enough, just the right balance. Better than the junk in the salons and not full of chemicals.
