I received a good size sample of this and didn't use it at first. I haven't used gel in a long time since I wear my hair straight now. But one day I thought that I might as well try it. Kicking myself for waiting so long! This stuff is amazing. It is very lightweight and not sticky at all. I agree with the other reviewer that this is not a typical gel type of product. My hair is soft, straight, no frizz or flyaways and it adds a load of shine! I have been using for almost 2 weeks and I have had no build up either! This is becoming a HG item for me!Here are the ingredients;PROPYLENE GLYCOL, CYCLOMETHICONE, DIMETHICONOL, AQUA/EAU/WATER, PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, GLYCERIN, SILK AMINO ACIDS, ALEURITES MOLUCCANA, ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE, BENZOPHENONE-4, C13-14 ISOPARAFFIN, POLYACRYLAMIDE, LAURETH-7, METHYLPARABEN, DMDM HYDANTOIN, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE.
