Finally, a nice soft curl.
Purchased

As a true and blue curly haired girl who has tried EVERYTHING, I'd have to say that this product is my absolutely favorite of anything I've tried previously. No crunch, no heaviness, no knots. Just pretty soft curls when I put it on towel-dried hair and let it air dry.
I will admit that the smell, while not unpleasant was difficult for me to adjust to at first. It has a strong laundry odor, which is just odd to have in the bathroom. But once dried it does give your hair a light clean smell that's barely noticeable.
Purchased the full size very quickly after my sample emptied!

Too soft, too smelly

I really wanted to like this product, but the dryer sheet smell was too overwhelming. In addition, it made my curls much too soft and did not provide enough definition. This might be good for someone with very tight, coarse curls who is not sensitive to strong smells.

Not a fan

I found it weighed down my hair. The scent was not attractive and it smelled like an old woman unfortunately.

Love it!
Purchased

I love it. It has a scent that reminds me of strong Ivory soap. I was a little concerned, but the smell, although nice, was short-lived. It leaves curls soft, bouncy, curly. I like it. With the humidity, I do need to use a serum or gel/mousse, but I usually do anyways. I am practicing with how much to use, and did not need to use much, so with practice, it may be used alone with practice, and when it's not a completely humid, rainy day. Overall, it did not weigh hair down, did not leave crunchy curls, but allowed for volume and flexible, soft curls, as promised. I purchased this and will do so again.

Works Great!
Purchased

This works well with my naturally curly hair. It makes the curl nice and soft and little more controllable. A little bit goes a long way or else my hair feels weighed down.

Works and Smells Great

This product made my curls look great without needing to apply a whole lot. I personally like the smell as well. Smells clean to me.

FANTASTIC PRODUCT!!!
Purchased

I've spent YEARS searching for a curly-hair product that would eliminate frizz and help maintain nice curls w/o crunch or stickiness! This product is it!!!! Even on a humid day my hair still looked great...And, the smell is delightful. Smells just like dryer sheets.

I really wanted to like this but...

I have pretty thick, curly hair and really wanted to like this. But I smell like a dryer sheet and my hair is completely greasy (my hair NEVER gets greasy). I'm tempted to wash my hair in the sink at work.

Double Curls!
Purchased

I got a sample of this awhile back and LOVED IT. Got 2 full-sized when they went on sale because I use it every day! Makes very soft, yet strong hold curls, not crunchy, truly pillow soft. LOVE THIS STUFF and I have thick, naturally curly hair. It's the best!

Not for me

This didn't really work for me. I used a "generous amount" as instructed. The product is VERY heavily scented. The texture of the lotion is nice and was easy to distribute through my hair, but the end result was disappointing. I let my (s-curls) hair air-dry and they were frizzy with no definition. I'll continue to work with this in conjunction with my normal mousse to see if the results improve, but probably will not purchase.
