Product works, smells bad
Sampled

This product works just as well as my everyday go-to (Shea Moisture Organic Curl Enhancing Smoothie), but the ingredients aren't all natural and the smell isn't pretty. To be honest, the smell is kind of medicinal/clinical.

Not for me
Sampled

Despite what the product claims, it made my hair totally crunchy. Also, it disturbingly smelled just like my mother's fabric softener. Yuck!

Not a big hit

I don't normally put much in my hair. The smell was nice though.

Not for my waves.
Sampled

I have wavy to loose spiral curls and this product was too heavy/oily for my hair. But my neice has very tight spiral curls and she is always brushing her hair (which I advised her to stop), and after I applied this to her curls, they looked amazing. I suggest this product is best for those with a lot of tight curls.

Disappointed
Sampled

When I saw this was in the Birchbox this month I was very excited! I have naturally curly hair and most of the time I straighten it. So the idea of finding a hair product that I like and that makes it so I can wear my hair naturally made me super excited. But I was very disappointed. :-( It didn't do anything different than all the other products I have tried and it actually left my hair frizzy. I probably won't use the product again. Plus, the smell was like fabric softener and it was too strong.

Gives pretty good curls
Sampled

For some reason, my hair was still a bit frizzy with this product. The curl definition was pretty good, but I agree with some of the other reviewers that you have to watch how much you use to avoid crunchiness. A little goes a long way, which is really nice. Unlike other reviewers, I could not stand the smell. It smelled a lot like I had poured fabric softener on my head. It also contains a silicone ingredient, if you're trying to avoid those.

Loving My Curves
Sampled

I LOVE this product!!! I've tried so many curl products over the years, and this was absolutely wonderful! It was just as described on the packaging: as fabric softener for curls...I scrunched, flipped, fluffed and was gone, perfect natural curls to go! LOVE IT! :)

Soft and Defined Curls
Sampled

I have almost a natural spiral perm and this stuff works great. It made my hair soft and my curls defined without feeling crunchy like mousse does. And it helped control the frizz which is great!

Best Product For Natural Curls!
Sampled

I have very hard to maintain naturally curly hair and I thought I had tried every product on the market. I had decided on another brand that was alright, but still wasn't completely what I was looking for. Then I received this as a sample in my Birchbox set and WHOA!!! Not only do my curls look better than ever, but they are actually touchable and I can run my fingers through my curls and they smell amazing. I will never look back! This is my go to product from now on!
