Not for me
Sampled

I have a little curl to my hair so I thought I'd give it a go. It smelled great, it felt nice, but I didn't see any difference in the way my hair looked, felt, styled... etc.

Not a winner
Sampled

I tried this product on my very wavy hair excited to see what the results were. I was disappointed in that it left my hair frizzy and didn't enhance my natural curl at all. It didn't work for my hair type.

Very Nice
Sampled

I liked the smell and the creamy texture. It was very easy to apply. However, it didn't smooth my curls.

not for me!

this was much too heavy for my fine curly hair...weighed it down and made it too textured.

This product smells amazingly good! However, it dried out...
Sampled

This product smells amazingly good! However, it dried out my hair something terrible! It didn't have a manageable feel to it at all and it was kind of stiff. It could work for others with not so curly hair, but it just didn't work for me.

Great for curls but not enough hold to prevent frizzies
Purchased

I really love Miss Jessie's Quick Curl and wanted to try a different product to see if I could get more definiteion to my curls. I have boingy-type curls that frizz up in summer (I am caucasian) The Curly Meringue didn't do what I wanted - maybe I could mix it with the Quick Curl.

It's pretty good
Purchased

I have naturally curly hair. I don't have tight ringlets.
This product makes my hair soft but it does not provide a ton of control.

Product too Heavy
Sampled

I am transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. This product was too heavy and greasy. It may work better for completely natural hair.

Way too heavy

I have fine blonde hair and the product is way too heavy. It made my hair look greasy and stringy. It does smell amazing though.

Pretty Good, but Curls a Bit Crunchy
Purchased

Overall, I liked this product. It smells really nice (but strong, so if you don't like pineapple, it's not for you). It was good at defining my curls, but they still seemed a bit crunchy when I used this product, but not too bad.
