Yes it will. This product works for curly or straight styling. A little goes a long way, so be sure to start with a very small amount. For short hair, a pea-size is a good amount to start with, then the longer the hair length, a dime, nickel, and only a quarter if you have really long hair. If you find your hair feels stiff/crunchy or anything that is not soft and manageable, that's your sign you're using too much!
