not what I expected
Purchased

I ordered this with high hopes but was very disappointed. This product didn't work at all as I expected it to- it left my hair looking greasy but still frizzy. It didn't define or help keep my curls shaped in any way. As the day went on my hair just got frizzier and bigger.

Does not work at all for thick, medium curls
Sampled

This was one of the worst curl products I've tried. It made my hair soft, but in a way that made my curls extra frizzy and look like I had used no product at all - but even worse. On top of the product being useless, the sample packaging was one of those foil packages you tear to open, so I could only use it once, even though there was enough product for 2-3 uses.

Dislike

I do not use hair gel. The product wasn't one to cause me to switch. I would not use this product again.

Disappointed
Sampled

I was so excited to recipe this in my box. I had be waiting to get something for curly hair. I followed the instructions and hoped for the best but what I got was frizzy curls after they dried. So I tried again using more than suggested and I got a crunch. Not what I was hoping for. The search continues.

Dried my hair out instantly
Sampled

I have naturally curly, color treated long hair and I thought this would be great and lightweight, but the minute I put it on it was as if it had sucked all of the moisture from my hair. My hair is already dry and I use lots of conditioner (leave-in and otherwise) but in my experience all curly hair is different and some products work great for some and not for others. This is why Birchbox is great, you can try before you buy!

Maybe not for my hair type
Sampled

I was really looking forward to trying out this product but it did absolutely nothing to my hair. I have soft hair even though it's curly, so there's no need to make it softer and my hair was frizzier than it was when I used my normal hair regime. Overall I'm very disappointed in this.

PERFECT

This stuff is AMAZING for curly hair! It reduces the frizz and craziness and makes my hair look like it's actually tame-able. Will definitely be getting more!

Doesn't hold
Sampled

I used this products and it stated that it kept the curls with softness, but my curls didn't hold and they actually turned fuzzy within 2 hours after applying. I did use most of the product on my thick hair but it didn't maintain the curl.

Not effective
Sampled

generous sample size, decent smell & texture, but not at all effective. Did not give me soft springy curls, as promised. It gave me a frizzy mess. I used it as directed, on damp, not wet hair. I used the amount recommended. And waited. What I got was a mess. I have used other products for curly hair & have had much better results. I would not buy this product, nor woudl I recommend it to others.
