Curly Hair Solutions™ by Jonathan Torch

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s the biggest mistake a curly-haired girl can make. After working too much gel through your strands, they resemble a bowl of uncooked fusilli: curly, yes, but also hard and crunchy. Make the switch to this unique styling lotion, which adds definition and controls frizz without leaving your hair—curly, wavy, or somewhere in-between—stiff. Since the formula is water-based, it won’t leave any sticky residue behind. Best of all, the re-activating formula is ideal for styling between washes: when you dampen your hair, the serum kicks back in to smooth down unruly strands.

How it Works

Curls and waves are notoriously temperamental, and this hardworking serum fights off the frizz-inducing effects of humidity and dryness alike. The water-activated formula provides weightless hold and brings misbehaving strands into line.

How to Use

While your hair is wet, comb serum through from roots to ends. Follow with your other styling products, and let hair air-dry (don’t mess with your strands in the meantime). To reactivate the formula and restyle, dampen hair with wet hands.

Great for curls
Sampled

This stuff is great. It definitely controls my frizz and helps my hair form ringlet type curls. I do put some leave-in conditioner in my hair as well but the combo definitely works for me.

Mixed Results
Sampled

The first time I used this I went by the instructions and while there was a bit more definition to my curls, they were still a frizzy mess. The second time I used a little more, with slightly better results, but still more frizz than I'd like. On my third attempt I went overboard with the amount I used because I was really going for great results that would last all day and well into the evening. I also skipped the combing through from root to tip and just distributed evenly with my hands. I really liked how my hair looked and was even able to rock "second day hair" in a ponytail the next day, but putting that much product in means getting that much product out. I thought I was going to break my hairbrush (or all of my hair) when I tried to brush it out, and had to shampoo twice before it really felt clean.

Works

This product works. Use lightly for fine hair so not to weigh down your hair at the roots. I played around with it until I found the right amount for me.

LOVE it!!

Works so good. My hair is in between wavy and curly and this stuff bumps it up to all the way curly and keeps all the frizz away.

Tough to tell
Sampled

I'm not sure that this is any more fantastic than other curling products. The more I used the better results I got, and I didn't find it to be sticky at all. Enjoyed the sample but probably wouldn't go for full size.

Great for Frizz!
Sampled

My hair isn't curly by any means. It is slightly wavy but only when it dries the right way - so picky! But this stuff made my waves look good. It didn't weigh them down at all and kept the frizz away.

I can't blab about this enough - this product is AMAZING! It doesn't leave my hair sticky - it dries instantly! It is smooth to the touch afterwards and it keeps my curls - curly all day!

Good

I liked product overall. Just be aware that it is very watery and you will need a lot of product. Hair must be completely saturated with product of nice results.

Made hair stringy and limp
Sampled

Curly hair is a tricky thing to work with, because everyone's curls are different. However, I've used about a million curl products and this one is one of the worst. It made my curls limp, stringy, and gave them the dreaded puffy crunchy curl look. Gross. Also, the instructions are absurd -- you're supposed to put in into wet hair and basically DO NOT TOUCH your hair until it's dry. As many curly girls who don't blow dry their hair know, it can sometimes take hours for our hair to dry, and sometimes you just gotta toss up your curls into a messy bun while theyre still damp. This product is a no.
