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.

This product didn't really work for me because I wash my hair at night. It left my hair feeling a bit dull and oily when I woke up. It also didn't activate my curls as much as other products do. Way too watery.

Not as good as expected
Sampled

I have very dry curly hair which responds well to many products. This one was more like I had a heavy coating that didn't give me bounce, nor great frizz control if that makes sense? I liked the large sample size since I have long thick hair but it wasn't a solution for me.

So far, I like the lightness of this particular product. I've been using it without the assistance of any other products, and the fizz is manageable. I can't say that it gives good curl definition though, and it's not a one stop kind of product. I do like the lightness of it. I may be adding it to my hair routine. My next step is to try it coupled with a curl definer.

I really like how lightweight this product is! It made my hair air dry perfectly!

curl enhancer, not creator
Sampled

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.

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...

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.
