This stuff is amazing! I have thick coarse hair that usually wants to do it's own thing but Slush Fund does an excellent job of giving my hair the perfect strong hold with just the right amount of shine(low/medium). I don't know how else to explain other than it gives my hair the perfect look and texture while accentuating the gray that I have. For me this works best on dry hair and a very small amount is needed. The key is not using too much so if you are using for the first time make sure you err on the side of caution. I usually just work it all through my hair then use a brush to sculp it into place. It may look too shiny at first but that will fade a bit and your hair will look the way you want it all day. A fantastic product that earns my highest recommendation.
