Overall, I am pretty pleased with the curl defining cream. I bought it for my granddaughter, who is biracial, and therefore, has very curly , slightly coarse hair. Hair combing time is a NIGHTMARE for her, as she is only 2. But, her hair is easier to manage since using the Amika line. Was hoping for a little more moisturizing benefits from the c.d. cream, simply because I try to keep product usage to a minimum, overall, since she is still a baby. But, I will definitely be making this a regular purchase for her in the future.
