Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions™ - Original Curl Keeper - 3 oz

It’s the biggest mistake a curly-haired girl can make. After working too much gel through your strands, they resemble a bowl of uncooked fusilli: curly, yes, but also hard and crunchy. Make the switch to this unique styling lotion, which adds definition and controls frizz without leaving your hair—curly, wavy, or somewhere in-between—stiff. Since the formula is water-based, it won’t leave any sticky residue behind. Best of all, the re-activating formula is ideal for styling between washes: when you dampen your hair, the serum kicks back in to smooth down unruly strands.

curl enhancer, not creator

Because this is a water-based product, it's sensory attributes were almost non-existence. It has a texture slightly thicker than water (not goopey at all) and no smell that I could detect. It combs in your hair easily and doesn't leave residue. As it dries, it gets slightly crunchy in spots, but ultimately ends up leaving your hair soft and natural looking. I think a downside to this product is that you have to allow your hair to air-dry and that takes a lot of time. I also wasn't a huge fan of the packing because I like to be able to close products and this had a tear-open.

Personally, I would not buy this product. I have straight hair so I was very confused about why I received this product but tried it anyway. I put it in as directed and twisted my hair as it dried. I let it air dry for about half an hour but I had to resort to blow-drying because otherwise my hair would've been wet all day. I ended up with a slight wave/bounce at the ends of my hair that initially looked very Grace Kelly-esque, but it didn't hold. This product is probably true to its name as a curl maintainer/enhancer, but creating curls is not its forte. Ultimately, just not for me.

This worked great to get rid of the serious frizz I get.

Scent is its best feature
Sampled

This was super liquidy and almost like the consistency of water. It smells great, but I wasn't too impressed with it. My hair is naturally curly and really frizzes up, especially in the humidity. I couldn't really tell a difference in frizziness in my hair, but it did feel like silk even if it didn't look like silk.

My daughter has curly hair and it works well, but I already use a similar product.

It's growing on me...
Sampled

I got this sample in my March box. I found the product a little difficult to work with at first, mostly because I didn't expect it to be so "liquidy". However, the second time has been a little more successful. Since the weather is still somewhat cold, I couldn't "air dry" as suggested, but only used my fingers gently when drying. My hair is not too curly, but it resulted in giving me a nice, soft, curly-wavy mixture that truly can be revived with water if necessary. I'm still using the sample, and I'm not exactly sure I'll be running to purchase the full size right away. We'll see...I still have about two uses left.

Magical

OK, so I'm a real skeptic when it comes to anti frizz-junk. This stuff really surprised me, I was concerned about how runny the sample was, but it really does control frizz.

I have curly, thick, long, frizzy hair so I've dealt with my fair share of curly hair product. Unfortunately this one didn't really do much for me. It's extremely light weight which is nice if you don't need thick product to control your mane. But too light to handle what I've got. I don't like the packaging because it's not resealable, and when I tore the end off it left frayed edges, so parts of the purple paper stuff got in to the first bit of the product I squeezed out.

Amazing

This is the first anti-frizz product I have tried that is actually effective yet extremely easy to use. It made my curls soft, bouncy, and defined. I love that it reactivates with water! This is a sample that I definitely plan to purchase a full size version.

Easy to use product

I used this today for an easy laid back hair day, I have really thick wavy curly hair, and this product really seemed to give the perfect amount of shine, and relaxed the frizziness.

Curls have new life!

At first I didn't like this product because of the watery consistency. Took me a moment to get a good amount in my hand without spilling it to work through my hair. It was easy to evenly distribute and I saw an immediate difference. This winter has been rough on my hair, drying it terribly. My hair looks so light, bouncy, and healthy right now. I'm very happy with this product.
