Rated 1 out of 5 by azera from Pure Clean Gel We love the super stiff gel and spike explosion. Several great products have been discontinued. It is nice that this is free of parabens but the smell is so awful that my boys (age 6 & 9) won't use it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Louperson from Used twice but will throw it away I used only a small amount as recommended but the gel stayed too thick on my hair. I might have gotten past that eventually, but the worst part was the smell--musty. It smells like that in the container and it smells like that on my hair!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CurlySue2222 from Not comparable Please bring back super stiff gel. After going through high school with unmanageable curls, this was the first and only gel I found that helped me love and embrace my beautiful curls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PamE from Not a good product When I found out that Super Stiff Gel was discontinued, I couldn't believe it. That gel was GREAT. It not only helped me style my hair, but it gave me extra volume. It was one of the best hair gels I had ever used. So fast forward to the Pure Clean Gel. Huh??? A replacement for Super Stiff Gel? You have to be kidding. This junk just makes my hair oily. I tried it multiple times and with varying amounts, and the result was always the same---YUCK. Please, please bring back the Super Stiff Gel. Listen to your customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by unha from Poor hold This is poor compared to Fructis super stiff gel that I(and many others) LOVED. Will now abandon Garnier products & find another brand of Everything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DAC3 from Bring Back Super Stiff Gel!!! Used Super Stiff Gel for years. Used to buy it by the truck load. Devastated that it is no longer available. This replacement does not work at all. Is in no way remotely comparable. Bring back Super Stiff Gel!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blardblar193 from Great for what it's meant to be It's a shame so many loved products get discontinued. Garnier seems to have a quick turnover rate especially, but it happens and there are reasons. It seems like most of the bad reviews here are because they want the super stiff gel. Well that's not what this is but I love it. It's not flexible at all but it's not rock hard. It perfectly holds all my baby hairs back which are STUBBORN, but doesn't feel crispy. Not too thin or sticky either. The smell is also nice, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzieQmn from A little goes a long way... I really like Pure Clean Gel. It is a thicker gel, so I only use about a quarter coin sized dollup for my entire curly head. I evenly distribute it right after shamp/cond. Next, I twirl shape my curls then cool air diffuse to dry it, then scrunch it out. Able to have 2 days of lovely curls. Happy that there arent any heavy cones in it! Super control of frizz on summer days. Highly recommend this stuff!

Rated 1 out of 5 by GMan from Not a replacement for Super Stiff I bought this thinking it was just new packaging. This does not hold unless you're going for the Grease look. Smells horrible too. Not sure what the scent is supposed to be but to me it smells like tree sap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4b4c from Awesome gel I have thick super curly hair that turns into tumbleweed if I don't use gel. This gives the perfect hold, my hair is not crunchy, it does not dry out my hair, and most importantly does not make my scalp itch. Please DO NOT change the formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hobstar from Gummy mess! I just bought this for my thinning, very fine, hair to help put some body into my hair. What a gummy mess it made of my hair. My hair looked greasy all day, was gummy to the touch, and I couldn't even get a comb through it without pulling my hair out. I'm throwing the whole tube out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bunnygal from Love This Just used this for my straight hair. I'm 60 years old and have used all kinds of products for many years. What impressed me with this is it has a subtle nice smell, its gentle but firm hold and that its 98% naturally derived. What a nice product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DisappointedDude from Bring back Super Stiff gel I don't write reviews but this gel simple stinks. I user the super stiff gel for years and was a great product. Discontinuing it and calling this the replacement is just wrong. Need to use 4 times the amount to get the same hold power. Started losing hair with it. BRING BACK SUPER STIFF!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mike123 from Replacing the Super Stiff? In mid-March I discovered the Super Stiff Styling Gel by Garnier was completely wiped off the shelves, replaced by the "Pure Clean" line of products. Searching everywhere for my favorite gel...the "Pure Clean" arrival seemed to nest its eggs everywhere, and I was rather upset not to find Super Stiff anywhere here in the States. Having trusted and relied on Garnier products for years...I decided to give the "Pure Clean" line a shot, not having much of a choice. Unfortunately, "Pure Clean" doesn't work for me! It's not easy to style with damp here or completely dry hair. Makes my hair too sticky while trying to style, and when I finally get it to look the way I want to, it quickly falls apart. Unless Garnier brings back the "Super Stiff Styling Gel" with its original ingredients...I'm going to have to look elsewhere for a company that meets my hair needs, even if it means paying a steeper price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CurlyGirl25 from Excellent as a Curl Definition Gel! I'm thinking maybe those with straight hair didn't have success with this gel. Thus- the reason for the 3 star reviews. As a 3b/3c curly haired girl with thick course hair.... this does wonders for me. I wash, use a silicone free leave in conditioner, detangle, section my hair in 4 parts, then put a dime size in each section. I use a denman brush to clump my curls together, and let it air dry. My curls are super defined and my hair feels moisturized. Lasts for at least four days with the pineapple sleep method and silk scarf. My hair type doesn't like silicones so this is perfect. There are a few things on my checklist to decide whether I like a product. They are 1. Curl Definition 2. Frizz Control 3. Moisture Retention 4. Silicone free with natural ingredients. This product covers all 4 so it will be a staple. Maybe Garnier should look to marketing this to us curlies.....sales would definately increase! Don't ever discontinue!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JeannieKV from Worst gel I've ever used! This gel has 0 holding power and feels more like I put olive oil in my hair. I used an amount about the size of a quarter the 1st day and my hair looked and felt greasy all day. I decided to give it another shot and only used a very small amount - about the size of a dime. Again it made my hair look and feel greasy. Will not be using this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maybebaby123 from Used this for years. I love this gel. I've used it for years and it works great! I've gone through one after another because I won't use anything else! It keeps my hair in place and it doesn't have a gross smell. I love that it's natural and good for your hair! It doesn't leave white flakes in your hair when you brush it out which I love! I totally reccomend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by homewrecker from Amazing If you have THICK, CURLY hair, this is a dream come true. I notice, from the reviews that people with straight hair or fine hair have less success. But for my hair type, I've never tried a better gel. (You might consider marketing it to curly haireds.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLB48 from Disappointing Like another reviewer, I signed up solely to offer feedback on this product. I was so happy to find a naturally-derived gel, but I believe you should go back to the drawing board with this one. It dries with an unappealing gummy feel and residue; it leaves my hair dull and limp. Frankly, it's one of the worst hair-styling products I've tried. Garnier usually does much better! Wasted my $s!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ginny400 from Very unsatisfactory product. While out of town I needed to purchase the Super Stiff styling gel that I usually use, but it was not available. I purchased the Pure Clean gel since I am quite happy with Pure Clean shampoo. To my amazement, it left my hair sticky and greasy and with no shine. I will not use it again! This is very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuziQ from It goes on easy with a clean feel to it. Worked quite well without the sliminess and residue of the old stiff stuff gel. I love this product! A little goes a long way so don't judge the product until your hair is dry and styled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hutzle from Great hold, no crunch I have been using Garnier products for my very short, wavy hair for many years. The extra strong gel was too sticky and left major residue, but usually gave me the "look" I wanted. This new version is so much better!!! No residue (unless I use way too much) and great hold without being sticky. I didn't see it today in my local CVS and started to panic---please don't discontinue it! I work in a very busy high-end department store and am constantly being complimented on my hair and am asked what I use to create the look!

Rated 1 out of 5 by cisb from GREASE CITY I signed up just to write this review. I am usually satisfiled w/Garnier products, but this was one of the worst things I've ever tried. I have fine, thin har. This product was like rubbing oil in my hair. I had to wash it out just to leave the house. I had tried small dollops of it w/the root booster and the mousse. I realized something was wrong. Today, I used it alone, and seriously, would not go out in public with my greasy hair. I am throwing it away, NOW.
