Great for Managing Unruly Curly Hair

Posted by 5477701745645315110 on Dec 09, 2016

I am a Caucasian female and have fairly curly, frizzy hair. I've been using this product for quite a few years and it never disappoints. It's very lightweight and never makes your hair feel weighted down. It has a nice scent as well. I usually order several at a time from iHerb as the cost in stores (i.e. Whole Foods) is much higher. I highly recommend. Note: I do wish they made a travel size, but I just bought a 3 oz squeeze bottle and put the product in that.

Not Too Bad

Posted by Yes0Yes0 on Aug 14, 2016

Great volume, lasts a long time. You must have a great conditioner, wet your hair then wear this, if not it will never work. It defines my curls so well and lasts 1-2 days after that, it's great, my hair did not feel straw-like. Only downfall is that it would be better if Beautiful Curls did a different package/tube - the ones with pumps as this has quite a runny texture so it might be inconvenient to some.

Good in moderation

Posted by nileann on Aug 01, 2016

This does a good job of helping form my curls, but a little product goes a long way. I have wavy to curly hair and I definitely only need a little to beat the frizz and maintain the shape of my wave and curls. Too much product and it is easy to get the over gelled 'wet' look.
