I use this product on my daughter who has very curly hair. This product does not even keep the frizzies from developing and will not keep my daughter's hair smooth into a ponytail. We have the pump version of this hairspray, and the pump gets stuck often due to the stickiness of this product. This is definitely not helpful when you're trying to get a five year old to hold still long enough to do her hair. However, the pump does make the spray easier to aim and helps prevent it from getting in my daughter's face and eyes. The scent of this product is very nice and we have gotten compliments on the way it makes my daughter's hair smell.
This product is very affordable, but I believe you are getting what you pay for here which isn't much. I think you are much better off paying a little more and getting a product that actually works, especially if you will be using it on difficult to control hair.
