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.

Strawberry sweet

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.
