Not good

I have curly hair. When I say I have curly hair, I don't mean I have hair with some wave to it or that my hair has some curl to it. I mean I have hair that is coarse, dry, frizzy and never needs help curling, it curls on its own and every inch of my head is curly. This product did not work well for my hair. It was drying, didn't help with the frizz and honestly it just seemed like a regular gel. There was nothing special about it. The fact that they advertise this product as something specifically for curly girls, is kind of ridiculous. This product would be good for those girls that say they have "curly hair" but they really don't. I have met many of those girls and to them I say, "Stop saying you have curly hair and please use this product."

Just Ok...

I didn't love this curly hair product. I am more of a curl cream user, not jelly, and the stuff I use currently daily is better at leaving defined curls, while the jelly left defined curls but they didn't last very long at all. After applying, my hair needed a touch up after 2 hours. Two positives are it smells great and it's not sticky, but I personally wouldn't buy this.

SUPER Drying/Damaging - but great hold

I live in Florida, so my naturally curly hair is a disaster waiting to happen. I tried this product, and I really liked the hold - it was a little crunchy still, and I do have products that make my hair softer. BUT - what I hated is what this did to my hair. My hair became a giant, dry, brittle rats' nest after using this product. Attempting to wash it the next day, my hair fell out in clumps it was so tangled, and I had to use an obscene amount of conditioner to be able to run a wide-toothed comb through my hair again. I think I'll try something else from this line, maybe more cream-based if there is something, but stay away from the gel if your hair has any tendency to dry.

Love receiving hair care products

I always love receiving hair products, especially curl specific products, BUT this product was a total miss for me and I didn't like it.

Alright

This was no match for the humidity outside, but when indoors it was nice.

Good but too sticky

I'm very opened to trying new curl products. This product worked but it made my hair hard and the goo was somewhat sticky. I don't like products that make my hair hard because it gives it that wet look. I would try this product again to give it another chance in the future

Okay...

I didn't love this curl activator - I prefer curl cream, not jelly, and the stuff I use was better at leaving defined, separate curls that weren't crunchy. Wouldn't buy this.

Weighed down

The curls do come out soft but it weighs my hair down. There is no volume at all and I'm not looking for this style for my hair

not very effective

The packaging hinted that I would have the best curls ever. This is basically a weak, non crunchy hair gel. It did nothing for my curls or waves. It did nothing for frizz. It did not moisturize at all, but felt a bit drying.
