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.

Good as an supplemental product
Purchased

The texture is a bit difficult to work with as it's very tacky and hard to evenly distribute. I've since figured out that it's best to just apply to the ends of my curls to tame the frizziness and maintain even curl structure and use my daily product throughout the rest of my hair.

Smells Wonderful
Purchased

I had hoped this would be more like a leave in conditioner, but it's a thick cream. I use this after shampoo/conditioning my hair and was amazed by how soft and shiny my hair was. I use it on my kiddos too who have curly thick hair and it works beautifully!

Too thick and sticky
Purchased

I didn't love this product like I loved the Pillow soft curls. It is ok, but a little on the thick and sticky side. Not easy to glide through my thick coarse curls.

Curly Meringue

I tried Curly Meringue to try and control my frizzy curls. It had a strong fruity scent that gave me a headache. It also seemed to heavy for my hair and left it feeling to thick and kinda filmy. i did like the texture of the cream and the packaging but felt let down about the scent and its effectiveness.

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.

On the fence

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.
