Been using for 5 years now. I always used what my trusting barber who has been cutting my hair for 22 years now recommends and he uses this with all his clients. I recently moved to USA and even my barber here asked asked me what stuff I use for my hair, he said it’s natural and has a good hold with no residue. He now uses it! I have used the blue as well also very good. It’s the best stuff I have used and will remain using it for as long as they are in business!!!!
