+1 I use this now that I'm growing my hair out to about 1" long instead of the regular 1/4" length. Provides great control, doesn't dry out & flake like most gels, and if you use more than a pea but less than an almond you'll get some shine out of it. Only complaint, it's a little hard to wash out. Usually wash my hair twice, then condition. btw, C&E shampoo w/jojoba is pretty d*&n good stuff. Been using it about a week and it's noticeably improved my hair.
