Boots Essentials Extra Firm Hold Gel
Wow - amazing
I started using this gel last year, and love it.
I use it on top of a leave-in conditioner (usually Garnier Repair and Shine), and Boots Curl Creme.
I find this gel incredibly curl enhancing. It has a light hold, personally I prefer to top it with Umberto Gianini gel if I'm going to be sleeping on my hair - if I'm just doing my hair for THAT day I will just use the Boots gel.
I get no crunch with this gel, just moisurised ringlet-y waves.
It is suitable for the CG regime - it can be co-washed out without using a harsh sulphate shampoo.
The whole Boots Essentials range is excellent, and the price just makes it better!

I have been looking for a gel to tame my frizz but also bring some volume to my ever flat hair! I saw this in store and thought I'd give it a go, as for 89p you may as well! I'm so glad I did! I massaged some in when my hair was damp and then blow dried it and then put some in when dry for extra volume. It's great. Holds invisibly which is what I really wanted and no crispyness or dryness. It does need to be replenished though, but because you only need a bit, that's not too much bother. I would describe it as having a medium hold though, not really firm. I would definitely recommend this before going for the expensive brands though!

Brilliant little pot of gel
This gel is excellent. I use it to scrunch my hair when it's wet and it dries into fuzz free curls. Much better than any of the more expensive curl gels. Please don't discontinue this!
