Disappointed

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.

dislike this product line
Sampled

I hate when I get this product in my birchboxes and have received this or the other products from this brand. The smell is awful and these products are way too heavy and greasy for my hair. They do not work at all for me. Went right to the trash.

It wasn't for me
Sampled

I was apprehensive about using this. I have wavy hair but I don't use gel I prefer to use a bb cream, I tried it though and it made my hair puffy and hard. Funny thing I tried a little one hubby's hair and it was great! And he likes it! So maybe it's meant for him.

Why Would You Want Curls Like Jelly?
Sampled

This made my hair feel, well, about like jelly. And last time I checked, I had no interest in curls that you could spread on toast. Sticky, gooey, and weird, I felt insecure about my oddly shiny hair all day and washed this out asap.

Not for wavy hair
Sampled

I'm not sure if this product is good for curly hair, but with wavy hair, this product is WAY too heavy and makes my hair just look gross. I've tried this product before and it is not for me. I wish they wouldn't do repeat products like this, it's not good and you can get it in the drugstore.
