Won't Wash Out Of Hair Easily
Sampled

I don't give poor reviews lightly because I realize there are people behind these products who are trying to make an honest living. I was excited to try something I hadn't heard of before in my thick, curly hair. The smell was nice enough, but the product was sticky and honestly a bit difficult to apply section by section, as stated in the directions. But I thought that if that was what it took for magnificent soft, curly hair, I'd deal with that. Once dry, my hair had some "crispness" to it, which didn't jive with what I thought that the product would achieve, which was soft curls. At this point I would have given it a mediocre review. But the next day when I tried to wash it out of my hair, it Would. Not. Come. Out. I washed my hair 3 times before I gave up and applied a huge glop of conditioner, hoping that might make it come out?! All in all, it took about 3-4 more days of washes before it was gone from my hair, but after my first round with trying to get it out, my sample pack and what was left in it hit the trash.

Didn't work for me
Sampled

I used this product three times before I decided it didn't work for my hair. It's so sticky it's really difficult to get through my hair. The directions say to put it through damp hair which did not work at all. I tried wet hair as well and that didn't work either. I'm really not sure how this product got such great reviews. I followed the instructions and it didn't work for me. I ended up with frizz and poof and no volume at the roots.

STICKY jelly curls
Sampled

Ridiculously sticky and stiff, like a hair gel from the 80s. Horrible for soft, conditioned curls

This product is great for black women. It will keep curls perfect without any greasy residue. I have gotten this twice in my boxes, and have given them both away.

Disappointed
Purchased

I really wished that this worked on my hair. Made my hair curly at first (when it was damp) but when it dried my curl was gone. I have very curly hair and I think I will stick with a leave in conditioner.

I was really excited to try this, but was very disappointed. It did nothing for my hair. It was like I didnt even use product. My hair got very frizzy.

This product did nothing for my fine wavy hair. I liked the scent and packaging and that's where it ends. I had high hopes, I love their leave in conditioner.

Does not smell pleasant
Sampled

Finally got around to using this sample. At first it smells like bubble gum, but then when you wash it out, it smells very like chemicals. I didn't notice the quality or texture of my hair, so for me, it's not a repeat buy!

Not what I thought it would be
Sampled

I was thinking that I would be able to put the product in, diffuse, and have soft curls, like the product says. I ended up with a frizzy mess. I threw it away after one use and didnt even want to give it a second chance. Not worth it at all.
