This was the only styling product I used for a while, while my hair was still very long and required very little styling. It serves more or less as a leave-in conditioner. What styling it does for me is tame flyways a bit, and it adds a bit of smoothness and shine, but I don't use it for extensive hair work.
It's funny stuff; you shake to mix up the oil and salt-water, then you spray it on. The product is designed to scrunch one's hair into beach-tossed waves (mimicking the effect of salt water and sand from dunking your hair in the ocean, I suppose), and I suppose that would work marvelously on hair more pliable and less dead straight than mine. Spray it onto wet hair, presto! My hair, however, pretty much looks the same no matter what (being long and Asian). Since it's dry, and fine, I like this to smooth down puffiness and flyaways. It makes my hair fairly soft, though it's no big thing. What I like best about it, I suppose, it that it's weightless. I spray some on my hands and smooth it through my hair—damp or dry—and it's not bothersome or oily. A lot of the smoothing/grooming creams feel to heavy for me, but this is very light.
It does smell very strongly of coconut. I'm not a big fan of coconut, but I don't mind it.
