    Unimpressed by this product. I bought it last year after my big chop. I thought it would bring out my curls but I felf like it just sat on my hair. I also combined it with the coconut curling cream but I just got a lot of build up.

    I used this product and combined it with the curling coconut cream. The next morning I had so many flakes, I was horrified! Did I do something wrong? Should I not combine the 2 products, help me?

    Was my first time using it and I'm not impressed. The smell isn't bad it's just very high and it lingers, i smelled this when I woke up a couple times during the night. Pros: it dries quickly it played well with my leave in (no white residue) It provides a medium hold a little goes a long way Cons: it flakes and boy does it flake. I woke up this morning to flake city after I took my twists down. while my hair does feel some what moisturized, its not as moisturized as it normally is and it does have a crispiness to it that I don't get with regular gels. I had a layer of oil and leave-in on my hair and this product still managed to dry it out a little, not even regular gel does this to me and I get a much softer hold, which is what I thought I would be getting with this product. I used it again on wet hair as per the instructions, no leave in and it dried hard. Not a fan

    At first, I was using this product daily. Now I've come to hate it. I was wetting my hair in the shower daily then I put my cantu curling cream and then this. After a while, I stopped wetting my hair everyday ( it was too much manipulation ) so I wanted to wait and see how second day hair would turn out. Turns out the second day is what makes it flakes. Won't be repurchasing. I love cantu but this product is not crackin'.

    This stuff is amazing for me ! I use on most when I'm doing my 3 strand twist out and it gives me great hold! The only downfall is that i still have frizz using this but i don't think it's made to control frizz! It gives me the hold and shine I want and that's all I wanted!

    This stuff was horrible on my 3b hair :( It left a lot of yucky white residue and flaked, even though I used a small amount.

    I bought this because i love the cantu conditioner. but this product was not my favorite. it leaves my hair really hard and sometime i get white residue kind of like with gel. but i think is good for pony tails.

    I've been using this product for about 3 weeks now & we've been fighting!! I have a mohawk style & the nape of my hair to a little below my crown are 3c curls but the rest of my hair is between 4a-4c as I gradually go up. Anyway, I've used this product and I get GREAT results for the nape of my hair but as for the rest, where it's no longer's terrible. It flakes up, crusts, makes it look like I have dandruff in my hair, & causes massive buildup! I co-wash 3 times a week as well as an ACV rinse & deep conditioning once a week. But after 2 days, I'm ready to wash again. & when I used their natural curl cream, no problems!! Not a great hold, but no problems. But as far as this stuff goes...hate it

    Just used this in my hair today for a wash and go on top of the Coconut Curling Cream from this line, and for the most part, I really like how my hair has turned out. My 4a curls are bouncy, shiny, elongated, and smelling like a tropical vacation. I'm still waiting to see how my second and third day hair will look, though. Will definitely post an update.

    This is fantastic! It really controls my hair! One of the best I have used! it's as good as As I Am but a whole lot cheaper. It's half the price!
