Good control but too thick for my taste
Purchased

I use this product sparingly as it can make my curls hard and unnatural looking. It does have good control, but I like products that offer a more natural look.

Before I start let me just say this smells A-MAZ-ING!! I think it smells Pineapples, and it just makes me want to forever use, for the smell alone. Ok, to the review...It was ok. I put this in my hair after detangling it in the shower, and normally after my hair is pretty tangle free, but after running this through, I notice my hair had a few tangles at the end. It also made my hair a little stiff, but that can be because I used too much. I think it would be awesome if used with Curlformers or any other styling utensil you would set with wet/damp hair.

Expected more.

I was very excited to receive this product. I was disappointed when I used it. It weighed my hair down and I didn't like the feeling of my hair.

Best for very curly hair

Did a great job of keeping the frizz at bay, but didn't give much of a boost to my curly/wavy hair, weighing it down instead. The price of some curl definition was definitely some crunchiness. Be forewarned - this product smells VERY strongly like a pina colada.

Not that great
Sampled

I really enjoyed the pineapple smell of the product but felt it did nothing for my hair. I have wavy hair and even with the product my waves were not defined and were frizzy. I believe this product may work for african american hair but not other hair types.

Smells like booze....
Sampled

The product was okay. The problem for me was the smell. It just felt like I was putting Malibu rum in my hair.. and for me that was kind of a no go. I ended up mixing some of it in my other hair products as a little hair cocktail in my palm to help mask the smell.

curly stuff

I used this product on my girls who have super curly hair. the smell was too overpowering and the cream itself seemed to thicken thier hair too much and make it hard to brush .I cant see myself buying this ...

I have mixed feelings about this product ust because it is meant for curly and thicker hair. Its a little on the pasty side but if you don't mind that, then this works well.

finally got to try it but...
Sampled

I've been wanting to try products from this company for a while but just never did until I received this as a sample from Birchbox. I was so excited to try it. So I did. First I must say your better off starting with just a little bit of product. I usually use alot of product when I use something in my hair since it can be pretty coarse and dry but not with this product. I will make your hair dirty and flaky. no bueno. But when I used just a little bit I liked it much better. I would love to purchase it but I don't think I can justify the $ for this product. If it came in a smaller size with a smaller price tag than maybe but until then I will stick with my usual stuff. If the price doesn't bother you than go ahead and pick it up :)
