Made hair stringy and limp
Sampled

Curly hair is a tricky thing to work with, because everyone's curls are different. However, I've used about a million curl products and this one is one of the worst. It made my curls limp, stringy, and gave them the dreaded puffy crunchy curl look. Gross. Also, the instructions are absurd -- you're supposed to put in into wet hair and basically DO NOT TOUCH your hair until it's dry. As many curly girls who don't blow dry their hair know, it can sometimes take hours for our hair to dry, and sometimes you just gotta toss up your curls into a messy bun while theyre still damp. This product is a no.

First off, I have ringlets when my hair is wet, but they fade to waves/light curls when dry and I am DESPERATELY searching for something to keep my hair at serious curl stage. Not only did Curl Keeper not do that, it weighed my hair down and was goopy against the back of my neck all day. I could feel it in my hair and couldn't wait to wash it out. Definitely not for me.

I was hopeful for this product as I am always looking for a product to tame my frizzy, curly hair. I was disappointed to find out that it does not work. Even worse, it dried out my hair and made it crunchy.

I did not like this product. I have curly hair and have high expectations when it comes to hair products. I used it and my hair was still frizzy and my curls were not defined.

I have straight to wavy hair (waves only occur near my face, noted in my profile) why in the heck would you send me a curl keeper? What a waste this month Birchbox, second item to go straight to the garbage in March's box. GRRRRR

When I was putting the product in my hands to put on my hair I thought "Wow! this is a light product so it's shouldnt weight my hair dow,", but instead it made my hair really stiff! I do not wash my hair every day but after the 2nd day I had to because I hated the way my hair felt. The size of the sample was very generous (could have been used 2-3 times depending on hair length), but I threw it away after 1 try.

Doesn't Work for My Curls or Frizz

Bummed. Had a lot of hopes in the title of "curl keeper" but it was nothing special. Average serum and didn't hold my curls well and did nothing for my frizz. I'm holding out to find that great product out there.

Nah!

I didn't like this product. It was watery and had no consistency. It didn't work for my curly hair. I would recommend it.

good curl control with no frizz

liked the way that this managed my curls and helped keep the frizz at bay. only a little product was needed. it didn't weigh down my hair.

Didn't work for my hair. :(

I have thick, sometimes-straight-sometimes-wavy hair. I put the product in while my hair was freshly damp from a shower. It ended up just feeling like I had a build-up in my hair. It didn't curl it or do anything for my waves. It might work for people with curly hair or a perm!
