This is a wonderful cream that I have used for many months now and I have always come out with perfect 2 stranded twist that are very moisturized. This is my staple product and the only cream that I use specifically for my hair styles. I live in germany and this cream is totally non existant here, so you can imagine the excitement that I felt when I learned about Iherb and there very low international shipping. I have already ordered 6 creams,1 gel, the deep conditioner and the leave in,and I will continue ordering from Iherb in the future as I have experienced prompt low shipping.
I have very curly hair and Beautiful Curls products work for me. I've tried so many different products over the years and these products have no bad chemical ingredients, they keep my hair conditioned, frizz free and looking great. I use this in conjunction with the Curl Defining Gel to get the look I like.

I really like this product. I have also tried their other product and I believe they are on par. The smell is nice and only lasts for a few minutes so if you don't like it it's no problem. The first time the product is used on my hair it goes a bit crunchy. I gently smoosh my hair and the curls are soft again.
Not for me

Not what I expected. I thought it would do - more or less - the same job as a gel without the flakiness but it didn't; rather gloopy after application.

A very effective product, just not for me

I have tried some "curl activating" creams and this is one of the better ones. Only bad part about this is that my hair doesn't really absorb the shea butter in it and leaves it feeling greasy. That's probably because my hair is medium porosity and this cream would fit very porous hair better. It has close to the same effect flaxseed gel has on my hair, a little bit of "scrunch" but there is no flakiness at all. This cream gives really nice curl definition. I would recommend this cream to anyone who has very porous hair. Also I think this would fit kinky curly hair well. If you haven't got very porous hair this cream will probably make your hair feel greasier than you would like. The product is very loose than most creams I used, so I would be careful about squeezing the tube. The smell is a bit weird but it goes away after your hair dries so it's not a problem in my eyes.

SCENT: Bought it after smelling how lovely my colleague's hair was. I suspected the scent wasn't natural. WEIGHT: It didn't weigh down my hair. My hair didn't look greasy. PRICE: Too expensive so I switched to Argan oil.
