Great for styling kinky/curly hair.

I have very thick kinky/curly hair that requires a lot of product to be tamed. I got my hands on a sample of this product and I thought it did a great job. I experimented with using this product for a roller set (setting my hair on rollers after washing it) and also for a twist out and it did a great job with both styles. Lots of hold for a number of days and left my hair soft. This is a pretty thick cream, so if your hair doesn't require a lot of product, be very sparing in your use/application.

I'm not super crazy about that scent, but it's not offensive, so I can deal with it.

If you keep it away from your roots it's AWESOME!

I actually won a bottle for this in a Number 4 Facebook giveaway. The first time I tried it I used it all over on straight dry hair and it left my roots looking greasy. The second time I tired it, I used it on my towel dried hair, avoiding the roots, and let my hair air dry (I have natural wavy-curly). I am totally in love now! I may throw my hair dryer out! (kidding). Still, my waves have never looked so good. This cream gives them the perfect definition and totally fights the frizz. This is already in my Birchbox favorites and I will certainly continue to keep this in stock.

Style for Awhile!
Purchased

I have a bit of unruly hair in small areas and curls in others but my hair is a beast of a different color when I use this product to tame the beast and even the little unruly hairs along my hairline and face fall into place! This makes a very zippy haircut possible. I LOVE THIS MAGIC CREAM!

Greasy feeling
Purchased

I bought this product because birchbox recommended it as the best styling cream and I have been searching for a replacement for my favorite which was discontinued. I found it made my hair feel greasy without giving my fine hair much volume. After trying it several times I have thrown it away.

good to have on hand!
Sampled

I am a hairdresser. I test products constantly. I really like how this one made my hair feel...not too sticky or greasy. It works great as a curl cream, a way to smooth your bangs or along your part line (where those pesky flyaways always seem to be). Too much hold to be a simple leave-in moisturizer, definitely for styling. Made my fine hair look "piece-y" which was a nice surprise. Nice pleasant smell.

Naturally curly wonder!

I have naturally curly hair that frizzes unbelievably. I can only dream of effortless beachy waves, but this stuff might come very, very close to being one of my ideal styling products. I have long hair (shoulderblade length) and a nickel-sized amount in wet-damp hair (just out of a turban or towel) gives me great curl control with no white flakes or wet, clumpy look. Even air-drying my curls via car window didn't cause them to become frizzy or super fluffy!
I am very impressed.

decent product
Sampled

I use this product sometimes straight out of the shower either leaving my hair to air dry or using a blow dryer. It's a decent product, but I think it may leave my hair feeling a little heavy, like I accidentally left some shampoo/conditioner in my hair while showering.. so I've started to use just a tiny amount only at the tips.

Love No 4 products, but this is my favorite
Sampled

I love the scent of this, and having just recently started making "beachy waves" and actual curls with my flat iron, this has been the best product for keeping the waves/curls defined, with great hold and super soft touch.

Incorrect ingredients
Purchased

I received this product in the mail and was very disappointed to find that the ingredients list actually contains propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, and butylene glycol among other things. The smell is pleasant but I will not be using this product.

Great for frizzy hair

I have a lot of frizz in my hair. This texture styling cream was a miracle. It took care of the frizz and made my hair easy to style and much more manageable. Thanks again, Birchbox.
