My Go-To Product

Posted by 4776635542999821037 on Oct 08, 2016

This has become my go-to product, and I've bought it several times now. It moisturises and defines curls very nicely. Scent is mild, consistency of the cream is good.

Great curls

Posted by 5381843201911603681 on Jul 29, 2016

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

Posted by MissEC on Jun 19, 2016

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

Posted by 5336836848214538503 on Jun 14, 2016

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.
