Good for SUPER curly hair

My hair is really, really curly for a white girl, but the hair strands themselves are rather fine. I only use this stuff on my ends, but it keeps them from fluffing out just fine. I love the smell, too. It is very heavy, though, so I need to shampoo more often when I use it.

Just OK

I wasnt to crazy about this product. Tried it once and has sat ever since.

Smells great; not much hold

It smells amazing but didn't do anything to define my curls--in fact, it made them even less defined than usual (maybe that's the "loosening"?) while somehow also causing my hair to spring up more. A useless product for me but probably great for someone whose hair is more wavy than ringlets.

Okay

I thought it was okay. It left my hair soft and not crunchy at all, but it didn't do much for the curl. I'll definitely give it another shot though... wondering if I didn't use enough product.

Great idea, not enough hold

I really wanted to like this product, especially because I had heard so many great things about the company. I tried it on a humid day and it didn't do anything but smell nice and get frizzy. Won't purchase again unless it's part of a better-holding routine.

My Favorite Creme
Purchased

I only just started "embracing the curl" of my hair. Products normally make it dry and crunchy, so I preferred to beat my hair into submission with a straightener. Luckily Birchbox sent me this creme. It's exactly want I needed: it wills my hair into soft curls and waves that I just want to run my hands through (and I often do). Plus, it caters to my laziness--I apply it and then go to bed, and wake up with great hair in the morning. Win.

Awesome!
Purchased

I got a sample of this great creme and use it on the days i am too lazy to do my hair. i just mix some in my hair after a shower and im done. It almost makes me mad, because I get more compliments on my hair on these lazy days then I do when i blow dry :-/ awesome product, soft, light, smells good, and lasts all day.

OK product

I tried this on my hair after watching lots of Youtube hair gurus using it. It does what it's supposed to do, but it left my hair extremely dry. Also, this product is very expensive! I will finish using the jar I have but I probably will not repurchase it.

Impressive!

I loved how this worked on my curly hair. Solved the frizz problem while creating a different, more wavy look. Created more shine and the smell is very pleasant. I just might need some more.
