    So far from all the products I've tried it's without any question the best. First components are natural and you hair is not damaged. But your curls are getting their shape really fast and dry quickly. Also, no frizz for all the day !!

    I use this as my 2nd and 3rd day hair cream (though it works perfectly fine as a 1st day, too!). This works FANTASTICALLY in my hair! It absolutely loves this stuff! Can't seem to find it anywhere, though. :( I'm out of my old bottle... sad times! :(

    OMG! tried this on my hair for the first time today. I used the super soaker method and plopped for 15 mins with a micorfibre towel. After leaving it to airdry I was left with really nice waves. almost looks as though they have been put in using heat... so happy!

  • curlsare4me - Hair Type: Type 3b

    Do yourself a favor and try this if you have 3a or 3b hair. Since going curly girl 1 1/2 years ago, this is the first finishing product that holds my curls, clumps my curls and keeps them in the 3b that they truly are. I also need a protein free, glycerin free and silicone free product otherwise my hair gets dried out and/or weighed down and looks like it has no curl. This product fits the bill. I am finally loving my curls again and how nice they look on me and suit me. It is somewhat similar to Curls Rock as others have stated (it's been a few years since I used that so I don't remember if CR clumped my hair like this product does). I would have given it 5 stars instead of 4 but my 2nd and 3rd day hair is not perfect, even when I spritz it to help revive it. Having said that, I get beautiful 1st day hair which doesn't happen with numerous other products and chances of 2nd day hair are laughable. I will definitely buy this product again but I don't use much so it will be quite awhile before I need to. Maybe I will find someplace in Canada to buy it by then.

    This is the only product i found so far that has gotten rid of my frizz. Frizz is my #1 hair issue. I can't even describe how bad it is and I'm so happy that I finally found a product that gets it under control.

    LOVE! I was looking for a curl defining cream that was both protein and glycerin free and I found it here! My curls are well defined, bouncy, shiny and frizz free! The best part is that a little goes a long way. I add a pea-sized amount to KCKT along with a drop of honey, then top it off with KCCC. My curls are beautiful and I'm on day three! That's rare for me. I was able to find a tube for $7 on Amazon. But now that I know I've found an HG product and a little goes such a long way, I'd be welling to shell out the $$$ to get it.

    I LOVE this product. My hair dresser introduced me to it. You have to apply when your hair is wet. It groups my curls together well while keeping them frizz free and touchably soft. Right after my hair is dry it is a little crunchy but I break that up and voila!!! I can usually get 3 days of great hair out of this product.

    Love it. No fail. Works well in any weather. And plays well with almost all my other products. And very small amount is needed. I had the same tube for a year and a half and used it often and there's still a third left. Scent is meh, but doesn't hang around. Gives definition and shine. Will always keep on hand.

  • Auntie Bubbs - Hair Type: Type 3b

    This would get 5 curls if it were cheaper, and easier to find. It used to be at ulta, but now I can't find it anywhere except at this one obscure store in the next town, and any day now, they'll stop carrying it. I actually live in fear that it will be discontinued! I love the curl I get, the hold is good (I still use a gel over it, but that's a given for me), the definition is beautiful, and the frizz control is perfect. No frizz at all. I can get 3rd day hair with this, and I usually struggle to get even 2nd day hair. If this came in a bigger tube, I think it would be perfect.

  • elenabess4 - Hair Type: Type 3a

    This product must be used with water and then all of the crunchy nightmares will be a thing of the past. It's simple, just apply about a quarter (depending on hair length, mine is to shoulders) in palms and quickly run hands under water, then rub palms together. Scrunch from ends to roots. If it feels too heavy, just add a little more water in hands and scrunch. Follow with three drops of MOP Glistener. This product is amazing for those of us who live in serious humidity (New Orleans or New York), but even works wonderfully in dry places like Southwestern Colorado. A great, environmentally friendly product.

    This curl cream was okay, but I couldn't use it more than twice because I can't stand the smell! I'm usually not all that sensitive, but I found this to be stomach-turning. Luckily, I'm not terribly disappointed because I wasn't wowed by the results like many others are.

    This cream gives me pretty nice waves but leaves my hair extremely crunchy. I like to use this following a PT+DT and it always give me really nice waves!

    I have to agree-Very similar to Curls Rock but without the silicone! Have only used once (and I think I used too much but was able to scrunch out the crunch) but nice curl formation and barely any frizz. Did use this on top of a leave in conditioner. You only need a little (dime size for shoulder length, fine hair). Does not appear to need anything else on top of it!

    I love this product! I have "wurly" hair - S shaped curls that lay flat on my head instead of out. I put this on fresh out of the shower with a couple of sprays of the C-Curl Curl Refreshing Spray - then put my hair up in my CurlEase towel. It gives great definition. It's been the only product so far to hold my curls all day, even into the next. And the products smell great without being overpowering.

    I love this curl creme! It is glycerin free so I can use it any time of the year, and along with the Super Soaker method, this creme defines my curls without stickiness or tackiness. I make sure to not use too much and emulsify it in my hands and voila - great waves and ringlets!

  • CurlyKathleen - Hair Type: Type 2a

    First, I agree about this product's strange attributes: it has the consistency of watery Elmer's glue and smells like mint and oranges. And, I agree with others that it can cause hair to be too crunchy or weighed down. For me, I found the perfect way to use it. I have 2A hair, and because it is thin, most curl products tend to flatten my hair to my head or weigh the curls out into mere waves. First, I tried using this product and then following it with light gel. That was a sticky crunchy mess. But, the next time, I tried something very different. After getting out of the shower, I very lightly blotted my hair with the towel so that it was still pretty wet. Then I spread 1/2 teaspoon of this product between my hands. with my hair being so wet, the cream spread evenly throughout it. And, I did not put anything else on my afterward. Once the hair was totally air dried, I scrunched out the crunchy parts and was left with beautiful bouncy curls without any frizzies!! I suggest using this very damp hair technique or using this product solo if it seems too heavy for you.

  • Alexjoujou - Hair Type: Type 3a

    Definitely gives me nice tight curls and enhances my more wavy parts. It is very curl enhancing! The reason for 4 stars is that it is like an Elmer's Glue Minty Toothpaste--and something about that consistency is just kind of unappealing. Also it has Polyquat's and I find I need to use a cleansing low poo to get this out of my hair. I can't use it everyday but when I want excellent tight enhanced curls it is my go-to product!

    Sorry, folks but I hated this stuff! It's has the consistency of glue and is extremely difficult to distribute. It made my hair frizzy, gunky and stringy. It's also difficult to wash out. I tried a small amount - didn't work. I tried a medium amount - too crunch and gunky. Then I tried mixing it with a little water - still awful!

    This is one of my favorites. I end up with great body and big, fat waves you could surf. Gnarly dude!. It's pretty thick, so you have to be careful not to use too much. I've actually discovered I prefer it when I mix it in the palm of my hand with a little Jessicurl Rockin Ringlets.

    Great product. At first I did not like it but as the day went on it kept my curls in tact. You don't want to use it too much of it at once and good to finish it with Curl Refreshing Spray. Also great packaging.

    This is one of the worst curl products I've ever used. It made my hair extremely crunchy, weighed it down, and basically gave me Ramen style hair all day instead of the ringlets I usually have. I am extremely disappointed with it (especially since it was so expensive), and will be returning it straight away.

  • kira1413 - Hair Type: Type 3b

    I would give this a 5 but for the price. It's very expensive at $18 for a small tube, and doesn't come in a bigger container. It does give great curl and definition and is an excellent frizz controller. I can sometimes get great 2nd and even 3rd day hair, but not consistently. A little does go a long way, but if you have a lot of hair, you still use a lot compared to price. I don't use a lot and a tube still won't last more than 3 weeks.

    Other than the price for the size, this is a very nice cream. It has a pleasant scent & gives good clumping & not bad hold. What little crunch there is, is easily scrunched out.

  • This cream gives fabulous hold, clumpage, and firzz-control. A little goes a long way, so the price doesn't matter so much. Smells like minty oranges. I'm a big fan.

  • 3B This product is Amazing!! I stopped using it for a while, so I could experiment with other things. Then I came back to it and realized how wonderful it really is! Great clumpage, defined curls, easily scrunched out crunch, doesn't weigh me down, and no need for gel with it, which is a huge plus! I like using the least amount of product as possible.

    This is the closest thing to Curls Rock I have used! This gives me GREAT hold without weighing me down. I get nice defined curls, and can even get second day hair! A little goes a long way with this stuff! Make sure you rub it between your hands and distribute it evenly, or you will get crunchy clumps. A pretty thin coat will have you set!

  • FrizzBgone - Hair Type: Type 3a

    I received this product as a 'freebie' awhile back. It is amazing. Had I paid for it (thanks NCC!!), it would be a little on the pricey side to be used everyday, particularly for really long hair .... but it is a great addition to a PJ's collection! It gave me amazing curls - lots of clumps and big spirals. I rake through the curl defining cream after a leave-in and then scrunch in some gel on the sides and back of my hair. Results: amazing curls that gave me two days! I never get 2 days !!
