amika Curl Defining Cream

Curly hair can have a mind of its own, but with the right products you can whip it into shape. amika’s Curl Defining Cream is lightweight enough for summer but hydrating enough for winter, and defines curls without weighing them down. Free of parabens, silicone, and artificial colors, it’s safe for all hair types — even color-treated tresses. We love the convenient pump bottle, with its bright graphic motif.

Not what it claims
Purchased

This product is horrible. It weighs hair down and does nothing to help with curls. And the smell is nothing to brag on.

AWFUL!
Purchased

I was so disappointed after using this product...the second ingredient is mineral oil and it left my hair super oily! I can't use it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT....

smells great!
Purchased

I really loved the great smell but didn't really notice that it defined or did anything to help my curls.

Its a little heavy for me
Purchased

I love the scent but the cream is a little heavy for my hair and looks greasy. I will try it again in the winter.

High Expectations, Met with Average Results
Purchased

After reading a lot of reviews, I was really excited to purchase this product. I never had a sample of it, and I was looking for a new curl cream. I typically use another brand I find at the salon I go to, but ran out and thought I would try something else. It took a while to find the right amount of this product for my hair...it's definitely the Goldilocks approach. Just a TINY bit too much and my hair is weighed down, too little and I have frizzy ends that puff out like a poodle. Maybe it's my hair. I have type 2C curly hair, so it might just be a bit too heavy for it. That being said, I think it would be a great product for others. Definitely leaves my hair soft, smells great, and has a pretty clean ingredient profile. There are some things that are unavoidable, but this is a healthier option I think.

It smells awesome
Purchased

This product isn't as great as I had hoped. There are much better curl definers out there, BUT it smells excellent and in a pinch, I would not hesitate to use it. I'm glad I have it on hand.

Smells Great
Purchased

I really wanted to love this product, but in the end, I found I just like it. It smells great and leaves my "frizzier" curly hair more tame and smooth however I find it quite heavy...especially for the summer months

another curl cream

My hair ha an awkward frizz-curl to it. i just stopped my routine keratin treatments and i still haven't found a cream that tames my hair. This cream worked for couple hours but didn't hold my curl all day and didn't prevent frizz. However it works better than my natural curl.

Decent
Purchased

This is a decent product, but not my favorite. It's not as "defining" as I'd like. I wanted a product that would sculpt my curls a little more than this did. It leaves them too loose and doesn't give enough definition to my curls. It smells great though.

Love the Smell
Purchased

I love the smell of this product, I don't like how it leaves my hair frizzy when I don't add another hair product with it. I have natural curly hair and I like the perfect curl look, and this just doesn't give it when using only this product.
