This is, for me, an okay product. I have naturally fine, very curly hair. I have to blow it out and then use a flat iron to make my hair sleek and shiny. This product works okay, but it seems to leave a bit of gummy filmy stuff on my hair after I have styled. I know I am being picky, but I just hate to be able to "feel" the product in my hair. I bought it because of the awesome reviews, so, obviously, it works for alot of people, just not me.
ProsKeep my hair nice and straight.
ConsGummy feel after hair is straightened.

I just LOVE this product. I couls never achieve the pin-straight style I wanted. But then I found Goldwell Flat Marvel and decided to try it. Every time I want my hair straight, I use this after showering the night before. In the morning, I use the flat iron and voilà! Pin-straight hair :). Well, today was the first time I actually read the directions and I realized it had given me heat protection all this time! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!

Makes my curly hair... straight
I have fairly curly hair. I use this product right out of the shower. I let my hair air dry in 2 pigtail types of braids and a bandana. I don't use a hair dryer. I use a Tourmaline T3 Wet or Dry Ceramic Iron on my hair and its fantastic. This product holds up for the most part unless its REALLY humid out. All in all, I LOVE this product and keep buying it :-)
Consdoesn't hold up in EXTREME humidity

Wonderful - what is in this anyway?? A lay person's dream to styling their
own hair! Only complaint - it doesn't come in a bigger container. When they've
got you hooked, they've got you!

I just kind of like it
Don't get me wrong... for the price point, this is a pretty good product. I've got dry, frizzy, thick hair so sometimes it is a little bit tricky applying it perfectly or evenly through the hair. If you get too much in one spot, it can take forever to dry and/or create uneven flat clumps in your hair when it does dry, and you have run the flat iron over it. Overall, the look that this product creates is really nice. I just notice my hair a little more dry after the next wash. More so than when I don't use this product with my flat iron.
Pros-Creates a nice look
-Takes frizzy hair
Cons-A little drying on color treated hair
-If you don't distribute it evenly, it is slow to dry and/or creates clumps when you run over it with a flat iron.

I have been using this product for a few years and I love it. I have thick course wavy hair that I like to wear straight. This product is great. It goes on without weighing hair down and gives my hair a soft feeling. Works great with humidity also.

The Flat Marvel works. I have used this product for more than two years. I live in Florida and it can handle the heat and humidity!
ProsEasy to use and no mess.

I have used this products for years. I like it because it straightens my hair with out taking out all of the body or making it heavy feeling. It gives some control without making my hair frizzy.

I have naturally curly hair and straightening it is a chore. This really helps!

I have only used it once, but it sure worked! I love Goldwell products, so I was pretty sure this one wouldn't disappoint me!
