  • 4BeautyandLife - Hair Type: Type 2c

    I am a 2c curly girl. I have used confident coils for 2 years and I loved it. Until I found a better product ;-) It gives the curls a good definition and makes sure that the curls are healthy and lush. However, there are two downsides. First of all, the hold is only half a day. When I come home after work it has done its trick and my hair looks lifeless. Secondly, I got dandruff from it. The whole day I was brushing off white skin from my clothing. So, in the end it gets 4 stars because when it does hold, it looks really nice. But my hair needs something a little bit tougher.

    I use this when the dew point is above 70 or below 45. It acts like an anti humectant, keeps my hair from exploding in high dew points and from going limp in low dew points. I have 3b hair, not fine but not thick either, love protein. I gel, diffuse to about 75%dry, scrunch in a quarter size puddle of confident coils, air dry the rest of the way. Leaves my hair soft, shiny, and fantastic.

    Didn't like this so much when I first started being natural,however recently my hair has been limp, undefined and either frizzy or greasy so thought I'd give it another try and I loved it!!! I used it with my SM curl and style milk and enhancing smoothie (as I love these products) and it works really well. I love the rockin ringlets also but haven't used the two products together yet. I don't like gels and don't want a lot of hold on my hair so this is perfect for me, I feel it's like a strong style cream hold rather than a gel that really helps with my frizz ( which is my biggest problem) but I can also get volume with product..... I love it! A frizzy 3b/3a x

    Mixture of 3c in front, top and sides and 4a in the back. I love Spiralicious when applied over conditioner as a leave in. However, the Confident coils gives a softer hold and shine. The slip is awesome. I use with Trader Joes aloe vera gel underneath and I get a soft hold bouncy wash and go. Wish I could post pics of results. I'm going to try more combination with this product. I also use CJ Curls in a bottle as a finisher for extra shine.

    Not perfect, but still the best styling product I have used so far. Very hydrating for a styling product and very good shine and definition. Hair doesn't have to be soaking wet but definitely wetter than I am used to which I don't like because I don't dry my hair. The hair looks healthy and feels very nice. The hold is ok but I prefer products with a little bit more hold. Spiralicious should be perfect for me!

    Nowhere near enough hold for my hair. Frizz city, although I don't know if most of the frizz is coming from this or from the Rockin' Ringlets I wore underneath. My hair felt really dry as well. I will be trying Spiralicious to see if it works better, but I'm certainly never using Confident Coils again. 2c, porous, dense, fine hair.

    I have anywhere from 2B - 3B curls, kinks and spirals. Purchased this along with the Rockin Ringlets after reading some great reviews, and got it with the Christmas sales here at CM. They are both going back. First, the fragrance: I got the Citrus Lavender - loved the scent when I first opened the bottles, but when I started using them in the shower they started smelling almost medicinal and woodsy/masculine. Second, the application: while its pretty straight-forward with the instruction, beware that the Rockin Ringlets comes out as a brown liquid (yuck!), not as a gel. Third, the results: after diffusing until about 60% dry, I finished air-drying. I scrunched out the crunch that the directions said might occur. I ended up with dry frizzy waves, not the springy curls and ringlets I was expecting. Finally, I usually can get 3-4 day hair - these products left my hair looking greasy by the end of day two. I will return these. In my opinion, I get much better results with Curls products - for half the price - at Sally's.

    A really nice product that really defines my coils and smoothes my hair well. Next time I will try it with the other recommended products. I didn't realize this is a cream and not a gel.

    It works great togheter with the rockin ringlets potion, gives lots of bounce and definition together. I really wanted to like to brand and these two products but after a week I started to notice my hair got very dry from it. I read the ingredients and realised that the magnesium sulfate was causing this. After a day at the beach you want wash out the sea salt from you hair so why spray it in after washing again. I will use what I have left over occasionly as I do love the effect of the two product together.

    It works, I have 3c and 4a combo hair and yes you WILL get defined curls, just follow the directions, I used this along with the rockin ringlets and the too shea conditioner (which is just about an HG to me) I got ringlets for days and so it was the stuff, or would have been if I had kept it in, but I just used the product so that I can review and did not review how long the coils and ringlets last or if later my hair felt crunchy (I washed it out within 15 minutes of confirming the curl giving power--but I find myself liking Jessicurl products more and more as I learn to use them.

    I have just past shoulder length hair, fine, bleach blond, mix of 2b-3a curls, I used in combination with gelebrations spray as recommended. The first time it worked fantastic, Improved curl pattern, lasting for days!, got very excited. But from the 2nd attempt on it lost it's zest & my hair would feel so dry & became more difficult to wash in the shower. So hato stop using it. Maybe once I restore the moisture in my hair I will use this combination once again & see what results I get & save it just for outings so not to dry it out again.

    I have to update my review on this. After being natural for more than a year, I've learnt more about my hair and how to better use products. So when this came as a sample again I decided to give it another try! I used this underneath some gel for some extra hold, which is exactly what it gave. My hair also didn't feel dry and I liked that it had good slip when I applied it. No complaints!

    i dont have wavy hair i have 3b curls... Dont use to much of this or else you will get loose dry beachy waves! (unless thats what your looking for) I find this to be a tad more moisturizing than Rockin ringlets but the overall texture of my hair is just dry! its winter where im at and the last thing i need is dry hair with the dry air = dead end. i gave this a 3 because i did like it and i want to give it another try and use less and mix it with some real good stuff like KCNT or AG recoil. however it ISNT what i was looking for.

  • JJ - Hair Type: Type 2c

    Keeps my hair non-frizzy all day and actually permits it to air dry faster than a competitive brand. Thus my hair time is actually cut down because I can leave the house before it has fully dried unlike when I use the competitive brand (sure glad they were out of stock when I needed to restock or I would not have tried anything different). I need to use CC followed by RR or as a combo to get a curlier look, but using in smaller proportions as per label prevents my curls from becoming weighed down.

  • Arbelaez - Hair Type: Type 3a

    I think this is a great product. I think KCCC has better hold, but that is all. This styling gel has good hold, gives bouncy curls that are not weighed down or greasy. It feels like a styling gel that makes your hair look good because it is good for your hair, and not because it has a lot of strong shit in it. It really feels like it moisturizes my hair and it does not cause build-up at all. This works well with kinky curly's leave-in conditioner "knot today". The smell of the island fantasy one and the one without added fragrance is very nice and not overwhelming when the hair is dry (or when it's wet for that matter).

    I LOVE THIS!! I have not ever used a product that defined my curls so well. I have a few pieces in the front that are wavy, and then the rest of my hair is a little tighter curls, and this was perfect to define both. I've never used a styling product that actually worked well on all of my hair without having to use anything else! The one little complaint I would have is that it isn't really moisturizing, but other then that this is perfect.

    I am in love! I just purchased a bottle of the Confident Coils along with a bottle of Rockin' Ringlets and I can't believe how well they work. I have really thick hair and I loathe having crunchy curls-this stuff (used in combination with the Rockin' Ringlets) does the job! I get soft defined curls that aren't frizzy or crunchy. And my second and third day curls are great, too!! This product will definitely be one of my mainstays!! Four stars only because the price is a little high and because I have so much hair, I use a lot of product.

  • themedievalist - Hair Type: Type 2c

    So, I'm posting to revise the review I posted a couple weeks ago. Since I was having a major problem with build-up, I finally banished non-water-soluble silicone products for good, just a few days after I posted the review here on Confident Coils. It turns out that on all of those days when I used Confident Coils, I was using it with a silicone-laden leave-in conditioner. I was curious whether this product just reacted poorly with silicone, and decided to give it one more try. I used my regular conditioner (silicone-free) as a leave-in, scrunched in 2 quarter sized puddles of Rockin' Ringlets and 1 of Confident Coils, scrunched with a microfiber towel, and then scrunched in another quarter-sized puddle of each. I was definitely rewarded! Hair dried with some crunch but was easily scrunched out, and I got the volume and curl formation I expect from any product I continue to use. There was a bit of frizz, but I smoothed a dime-size amount of Confident Coils lightly over my hair, and that basically took care of that. I'm not sure I'd call it moisturizing, but it's not drying. This isn't my favorite product, but I think it's one that I'll happily keep in my rotation.

    I just don't get it... According to most reviews, it should work well for my 2c/3a curls, but I've tried this with Rockin Ringlets and with other products. I checked the Jessicurl website to see how much to use, and tried the recommended amount, a bit more, and a bit less. No matter what I do, I get frizz without volume and mediocre curl definition. If I use too much, my hair also starts to feel greasy. I really wanted to like this - I bought the set of this, Rockin Ringlets, and the Awe Inspiraling spray - but it just isn't working with my hair.

  • Prispicacity - Hair Type: Type 3b

    I am only giving this two stars instead of one because I do not want to mess up its rating simply because it wasn't the right product for my hair. Confident Coils felt like it dried out my hair and it didn't seem to provide any humidity protection or definition. I used it during a week that was very rainy and wet. I even tried combining it with different products, but it just didn't do anything for me. This is probably better for those with less obstinate/less dense curls--maybe.

  • CurlieCookie - Hair Type: Type 3b

    My hair is baby fine (mostly 3b) and sometimes dry. Products often weigh it down very easily and leave my hair feeling full of product. Also, I have allergies to various things. So, I needed to switch from what I had been using because my scalp was breaking out and itching. Needless to say, when I saw this product's ingredients, reviews, and that it's price, I wanted to give it a try...really try (e.g. following the instructions before becoming frustrated that it didn't work). Let me say that I LOVE this product. Most products claim to retain moisture, but end up drying out my hair more. You can order this product with either no scent, citrus lavender (haven't tried this scent), or island fantasy. I chose island fantasy. I REALLY like it. Also, my hair feels like hair; it's not stiff, it moves a lot, it's quite shiny, and my hair held its curls even through all the crazy Southern California Santa Ana winds. Lastly, I successfully have second-day hair with this product. I realize not everyone will like this product, but I sure do. As long as the ingredients don't change, I am a Jessicurl fan for life.

    I have 3a/b curls. For me, Confident Coils is an absolutely outstanding product for definition! My hair is layered, and the shorter layers, especially at the crown, like to clump together into about 4-5 big Nellie Oleson style curls, which is not a good look on me. The Orphan Annie jokes get old quickly. I'm growing my hair out again, but until the hair gets longer, I have to fight with it. Confident Coils makes all my hair separate into "beachy waves" and spirals without giving me a lumpy mullett, and there's no crunch. The hold is excellent, lasting much longer than other products, and this reactivates well with water or refresher spray. I have the Citrus Lavender fragrance and I love it so much I could wear it. It's so fresh and summery smelling. While this does not completely eliminate frizz for a whole day, when used with Rockin Ringlets I can go longer without refresher sprays than with any other products I've tried so far. I use about a dime size amount, so I really get my money's worth with this cream. It seems to moisturize my hair as well, which helps keeps my curls bouncy. Highly, highly recommend!

    I have a mixture of 3a,b,and c hair that is fine and highly porous. It seems that nothing works for my hair, and if it does, an hour later it flops. I used this product with recoil...first i put it with soaking wet hair and cupped puddles of cold water on my hair to seal it, then blotted my hair with my tshirt, applied recoil and then a bit more of the JC CC. (even applied it to my scalp. I had the best hair ever! My brother came over and asked me why my hair was so freakishly curly. He has never said anything regarding my hair in my 3 years of life. I'd say it's a winning combo. I just ordered Rockin ROnglets...I'm excited to try it. I figured that I can't apply products to soaking wet hair bc they stretch out too much.

    I have type 2a-3a hair--very fine and wavy to curly. My hair is exceptionally porous and can absorb a lot of product before getting weighed down. I do a lot of mixing and layering of products, in fact, just to get my hair not to be so flyaway. I found this product did what it said--offered enhanced curl definition; however, I found it worked even better mixed with a Curly hair Solutions product that also aims for curl definition: Curl Keeper.

    I tried this years ago when I first went CG and it was just ok. I was looking for something to mix with my home made flaxseed gel and my beloved Fairy Tales curly q gel but everything I tried just didn't turn out well. I tried Paul Brown Goo, BRHG, CHI hard hold gel, etc. So I decided to give this a whirl and sure enough used in small amount mixed with Fairy Tales gel it did the trick. No frizz, great hold, and good curl definition.

    This product is incredible. I keep trying different products and always come back to the Jessicurl line. My biggest issue with my curls has always been FRIZZ and this with RR underneath pretty much eliminates any frizz I could dream about having in the most humid of weather (I live in FL). Once your hair dry it's like you have nothing in your hair! Curls are bouncy, soft, and SO healthy.

    I really like the Jessicurl line of products, particularly the Gelebration spray, but this did nothing for my hair. My hair is 2b, thick and course. CC left my hair extremely dry with no curl definition. I tried to use it several different times, alone, and with other products but it was a no go for me.

    After reading such incredible reviews for the Jessicurl line I purchased CC along with Rockin' Ringlets. I was really, really, hoping to love these products, but unfortunately just ended up super disappointed. To put it simply, neither product, alone or together, did much for me. I have long, thick, coarse, 2c hair that really needs smoothing and frizz protection. CC had no control, no extra definition, and left me wishing I'd spent my money somewhere else.

    Gives great hold, as others have said, a little goes a long way (or you may find your hair to fall a bit flat). I wish the ratio was the same as RR but it's not..RR is very liquidy so I find my RR runs out fast and my CC stays pretty consistent. (I have shoulder length 3b hair, and use two puddles of RR and a quarter size amount, sometimes less, of CC). I haven't tried Island Fantasy but adore the Citrus Lavender scent. A lot of people comment that the CL scent is more citrus than lavender which I agree...but the lavender in the product smells like true lavender oil.. so it won't have the "french lavender" i think a lot of people may have expected. From what I have heard the Island Fantasy is very coconutty/ pineapply (haha do you like my word reference?) I personally enjoy more earthy scents, and if you do you want to try the CL before IF.

    I have 3c/b curls... I use AG recoil (love it), but it makes my hair super crunchy if I don't have my Confident Coils. I alternated so many of my hair products, but you can bet I use CCs EVERYDAY. I apply products to soaking wet hair and then squeeze excess water out before I apply CCs. CCs keeps my hair from being super crunchy and it is perfect for plunking.

    This worked ok for me. I got more clumping and more well defined curls when I layered CHS CK under Jessicurl CC. When I used RR with CC it left my curls defined but very stringy. Glad I got the sample, I will not repurchase.

    I use this with Rockin' Ringlets underneath and get great results! For more surface frizz control, though, I need a strong gel over both. And then I get clumpy, soft, curlier curls. You've done it again, Jessicurl! :)

    Wonderful curl definition and hold that lasted until the next shampoo. If your hair is slightly dry, you will need to apply a leave-in conditioner first, and a small amount of Confident Coils. Am pleased that the description matches the results. I give it 4 curls because there was a tiny bit of barely noticeable flaking, but that could be due to the interaction with the leave-in.

    I'm really dissapointed with Jessicurl CC. It is fantastic in terms of being soft and crunchless. It looks and feels as if I have virtually nothing in my hair. However, I get little to no hold, intense frizz, and what little hold I do get only lasts about an hour after my hair dries. I use it with RR as directed by their video, but to no avail.

    Gives such great, soft curls, especially over RR! Any crunch that occurs can easily be scrunched out. I use 2 dollops of this over 2 of RR, and then define any especially frizzy front areas with I.C.O.N.'s pomade (which I can't find here, sadly), and I am set to go all day!

    I really like this product. I use it over Jessicurl's Rockin Ringlets for great definition and medium hold (which is fine for me, I don't like hard hair.) Second-day hair is good, so's third. I recommend this highly.

  • phat_tmr - Hair Type: Type 3c

    I love this product! I read reviews of many others that liked this in combo with Curl Keeper and/or Batia & Aleeza Gel, so after some research and reading the reviews, I decided to try this product. I have very thick 3b/3c hair that likes to spiral, I debated whether to get the Rocking Ringlets product. However, I read some advice on the Jessicurl site, where Jessica recommended using CCSS alone if you had thick hair that spiraled on its own. I used this a little differently from the JC videos, since I was layering this with CK and BA gel. The first thing I did was break my hair into 4 sections. Then I went through, and with my fingers raked in the CHS Silk Leave-In, followed by the CK, CCSS, and BA gel. I could clearly see CCSS clumping my ringlets into groups as I applied it! Best of all my hair had body, movement, curl definition, no frizz, beautiful ringlet groupings. Day 2 looked great as well. So although I didn't do the flip over the head and puddle and scrunch application process, the sectioning and rake technique worked out wonderfully. This will definitely be a HG summer product for me!

    Ok. I just tried this product last night. I have to say, I absolutely LOVE IT!! I used it in conjunction with the Rockin'Ringlets, and I am blown away. My curls are not frizzy. They are defined AND They are SOFT!!! Most products will make my curls very stiff. My curls are so soft, I can't believe that this is actually keeping my curls in place! Sorry so long, but I had to say it.

  • When this works, my hair looks awesome. I get a little frizz, but it's very minor and far less than any other product I've tried. Only problem I have is that it doesn't always work. Sometimes I can get awesome hair and other times I just end up with a stringy mess, need to keep experimenting.

    This is a wonderful product for my 3a/3b hair. I use this product after Rocking Ringlets and before adding some gel on the hair framing my face (those hairs need extra hold). This leaves my curls soft, clumpy, and shiny. This product is silicone free, which is great for my CG routine. The Citrus Lavender scent is heavenly! I believe she may use the essential oils to achieve that lovely scent. All-around a great product.

  • Hair Type 3a. CCSS gives me great clumpage and curl definition. However, it flakes pretty badly, and the flakes fall into my eyelashes. I am continuously rubbing them off. I used only a nickel sized amount as recommended in the accompaying pamphlet in the styling products trial pack. It does not offer a secure strong hold as advertized in the bottle. It needs to be reformulated.

    I love the turn out I got with this styler! Being that my hair will not adhere to one product alone, CCSS gave me great clumping, softness, minimal pouf, and piecey curls, while working together with CK for frizz reduction and Moptop's anti frizz gel for light hold. I like that all of these products are silicone free as well!

    I'm a long-time user of Paul Mitchell super clean styling gel, so I was very reluctant to go without my precious silicones. When I first looked at CC, I thought oh great, it just feels like a conditioner. I was very happy with the hold it gave me, NO frizz, bouncy, soft, curls with no crunch! It works good on it's own, better with Rockin' Ringlets. No more silicones for me (that is, when I use up what I've got left; hey, I'm cheap!).

    Holy Cow. This stuff is so great, I cannot even begin to gush...but I will. I used this after applying RR as recommended. Super ringlets, great clumping of tendrils, almost zero frizz. I applied to almost sopping hair then plopped for about 5 min. Then let air dry completely without touching. When dry it was slightly stiff, so I flipped my head over and shook and VOILA! Soft curls with great definition. DH said he has never seen my hair curl like that and loved the softness and scent. Highly recommend for soft hold and definition on slightly coarse 3B.

I may need something stronger on that part mixed with the CCSS. I LOVE the way my hair feels after I apply it, and with the rockin ringlets I get awesome shiny and spiraly curls, but as I said, not enough hold to prevent frizz for my thick 3a/b hair. I was hoping it would help more to prevent frizz on my halo.

    I really, really wanted to like this product; but alas, I guess it just isn't for me. No matter how much I use, I find the hold to be very light, ultra light (even lighter than RR). I live in South FL and we are still in the depths of summer humidity and this product (combined with RR or alone) did not hold up. My hair was undefined and frizzy... and my hair is rarely ever frizzy. I did have good luck when I paired the CCSS with a very firm gel (namely Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee), but it just doesn't work consistently enough for me. Maybe this would work well for those in cooler climates? As usual though, I love that Jess makes her products available it 2 scented choices and an unscented choice.
