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.

Great Curl Cream
Purchased

This is probably the most effective curl cream I have ever used. It keeps curls soft, but well defined. The only complaints I have are the ingredients, which are very chemical based (as opposed to natural oils etc.) and the fact it requires a maintenance product like Baby Buttercream.

Great for Big Curls!
Purchased

This cream is great at taming my big frizzy curls. I'm white, with medium-length, thick, red hair with tight curls. I have frizz all year round, but it's at its worst in the steamy summer.

I use Curly Meringue like I would any other curl styling product: rub some in my hands and scrunch into damp hair and air day. It consistently results in bigger softer (looking and to the touch) curls that aren't frizzy or too voluminous. *Note* I use only about 1/2 of what the directions suggest because more weighs down my curls too much. I got to that amount by trial and error and suggest that you do the same, especially if your hair isn't very dry or kinky.

The one drawback for me is that it requires me to wash my hair every day, or else I end up with greasy looking locks (if I use half the regular amount I use with just-washed hair) or limp and frizzy (i don't use any product). I suspect that's because I have normal hair, that isn't dry and usually doesn't need to be washed more than 3 times/week. If you have hair on the dry side, the greasy effect probably wouldn't be an issue for you.

The bottom line is that even though I have to wash my hair more often (and therefore have to condition it more often too), it's not such a big problem that I would stop using the product. I love the consistently good hair days that Curly Meringue gives me too much.

Miss Jessie's works!

I seriously love this product. I put it on while my hair is wet and when it dries, it is soft, frizz free, and good to go. I love how I get tendrils of soft curls, not hard spirals like with other products. It smells divine too!

Finally, my curls are saved!

I have long curly, fine hair which can easily turn into a frizz ball. I've tried so many products that weigh down my hair sapping the natural volume I have. Other products are super oily and gave my hair an all day wet look (no thank you!). I was skeptical when I tired this. To my surprise, a little went a long way. My curls retained their bounce, sans frizz! Light and moveable is key to my curl's heart. So excited to get the big bottle. Oh yeah, and the smell is amazing!

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.
