Soft Curly Hair
Purchased

Growing up with very curly hair, I am always looking for a product that minimizes my frizz. This product certainly helps and leaves my hair feeling soft.

too oily!

This product made my skin really greasy and didn't help shape my curls at all! I most defiantly would not recommend this product to anyone!

Smells like fresh laundry
Purchased

I love pillow soft curls. I don't like scented products but this light styling product smells so clean. Say goodbye to frizzy coarse hair.

Keeps my curls in line all day
Purchased

I will use this at night after I shower. When I wake up in the morning, my hair doesn't look great but then I wet my hair and add more of the Pillow Soft Curls. From then my hair (which is thick, wavy, and frizzy) has looked consistently better than I've ever seen it. My curls have stayed looking nice with this even on rainy days!

A middle of the road product
Purchased

The smell is not very good. The product leaves my hands and hair feeling greasy. It does well hold the curl well, but the the greasy feeling and look detracts from my hairs overall appearance.

Low maintenance curl
Purchased

First off, if you hate the feel of a lot of product in your hair, this is great--but use sparingly! For my thin hair, I use about half the recommended amount (quarter-sized dollop made me feel like I had doused my head in pomade). My curls come out looking a lot more natural, but without the lion's mane pouf that I get without product. It smells decent, and my hair felt really soft for the next few days, even when straightened. The tube is enormous so I guess I am also pleased with the value!

Imperfectly Lovable
Purchased

My tendrills are high maintinence and this product delivers beautiful, lightweight curl cohesion without that 1980's, wet-and-crispy look. Apply too much and you CAN make it crispy, if that is your thing. What is holding me back from feeling 5-stars about this is the smell. Initially, I wanted to send it back. But it is truely a light scent that becomes unnoticable to the wearer very quickly and I have received compliments on the fresh smell when hugging others. I no longer have a negative reaction to the smell; I use it daily and am likely addicted.

Product Sampled and I LOVE IT

This does soo much for my hair, when I first got it, I opened it, tried it one day and it worked great but I felt like I smelt like tide or downy or something LOL but I put it away, the sample was so huge in my birchbox and I love it, I am overall happy with it and will be purchasing the full size :)

Terrible smell, way too heavy for fine hair

I disliked the smell very much. It smells a bit like Necco wafers plus some strong chemical scent I can't place. Nasty
Texture is very heavy as well, but I tried a small amount on my very fine, thin curly hair. The small amount (about the size of a quarter) would barely work itself through my hair, it was so thick and gloppy. I tried combing the rest through but couldn't manage it. I wound up washing my hair again and tossing the sample. I had wrapped my hair in a towel to let it air dry before trying to style it, and had to re-wash the towel as well, because it smelled so strongly of the product. Big no from me!

AWESOME
Purchased

I have fine curly hair and I have finally found a product that works in my hair. Its light on your hair and my hair is so soft! A little really does go a long way. It is the only product i need to put in my hair for a great hair day. I Diffuse my hair just a little and let the rest air dry. It gives my hair body.
