not for me!

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

Soft, bouncy curls
Sampled

I have used salt water sprays, curling lotions, etc to tame my wavy hair when I do not feel like straightening my hair. This was love at first use. My hair is not crunchy, its soft, the curls look even larger than normal as if I used a curling iron. The cream is not sticky and has a slight coconut smell but its pleasant. This was a great find for Birchbox and for me.

Great for super curly hair.
Sampled

The product is great if you have really kinky or super curly hair. I, however, have soft curls and this product is too heavy for my hair.

generous portion
Sampled

Wow what a generous portion! I usually hate putting product in my hair but with this product it doesn't feel like you put anything on. It did help my hair maintain it's curl without any gucky mess and I like the scent as well! Good job Misses Jessies

Sister's Opinion -- Works Well
Sampled

I have bone straight hair but both of my sisters and my mom have naturally curly hair and so I had them try this product. Both my sister and my mom said that this was good at calming the frizz and with defining the curls. My sister recommends using slightly more than the directions suggest to keep the frizz from taking over.

Original Curly Meringue

I liked the product, but I think it is for people who have truly curly or textured hair. Either that, or you have to wash your hair every day or so.

This one will hurt...my Garnier creme works better at defining my curls than this did. I know! Blasphemy! But all in all, I wasn't impressed with the end result. Super cute packaging, though!
