Birchbox Breakdown

You’'re a complicated lady. You aren'’t only your city, your family, and your job: You’'re also your love of solo bike rides, your scrumptious (and totally secret) recipe for triple-chocolate brownies, your dancing-in-your-seat roadtrip playlists. Likewise, your hair defies pat description: It’'s a blend of textures, each curl a bit different than the last. This styling lotion is designed for all of them, giving you a frizz-free, manageable, and utterly you head of curls. This smooth formula is loaded with safflower oil and olive fruit oil to tamp down frizz without weighing down strands. It gives hair a sleek, more uniform curl while adding gentle, anything-but-crunchy hold.

How to Use

Evenly work a capful or more of styling lotion through clean, conditioned hair. Gently scrunch hair, then blow dry with a diffuser or let air dry.

Not sure why I got this

I have straight hair, it's not multi cultural or curly. I'm a little upset I got this in my birchbox when I don't have it marked that I have hair that needs this type of product.

Perfect for my hair!

I have thin, wavy hair. I've tried countless mousse and salt spray products to get that curl but its always either too heavy on my hair or makes my curls crunchy. This gave me a soft, pretty curl and I loved it! It doesn't take a lot. I get compliments every time I use it! I would definitley recommend it!

His works very well on my very wavy hair. I just scrunch it in wet and let it dry. When it's dry I just scorch again to get the little bit of stiffness out

Love this and I don't have multicultural hair!

I've got very curly hair, but am uni-cultural (Mexican) and this has been a giggle product because of the name. It works well on my hair and holds well. I'm ordering again. Thanks for offering a product I'd never have chosen otherwise!

My hair is naturally wavy/curly, and while I prefer to blow dry and straighten I don't always have the time. My hair has lost some curl over the years so it really is more wavy now. I am constantly searching for curling products that will help really bring back the curls. This left little to be desired. I tried it a couple times and it never really made my hair do anything that it doesn't do without any product. Plus this felt a little think and make my hair crunchy. Would not recommend unless your hair is already super curly and all you are looking for is something to hold what you have already in place.

Perfect

I couldn't get a hold of Ms. Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls anywhere so i went for the Multi-cultural curls and I must say this is my new favorite! I have never been able to find a product that works so perfectly on my hair which is best described as multi-cultural. Thank you Ms. Jessie's!

I love this product for my curls!

I was skeptical about purchasing this at first because I really did not know what to expect because there is always false advertising about curly hair products! But I do have to say that I am in love with this product! I have thick frizzy curly hair and when using this you only need a small amount because if you put too much it can make your hair feel a little sticky but it made my curls soft and frizz free! When you use too much it can give your hair that crunchy feeling a little so if you do all you have to do is wet it a little bit and then it will be perfect!

I had a sample of this once, and the sample was pretty decently sized. Once i got through it i knew i had to get the full size. I tried getting it at walmart because they do sell it there but they were always sold out. Birchbox had it in stock and they are pretty good with shipping so i bought it here. This stuff is lightweight so it doesn't make my hair look greasy or weighed down. It tames my hair so well ( i have thick wavy, frizz-proned hair)! I can use it with other products without having product build up. It has a lemony smell, nothing overpowering so it's nice.

I FINALLY FOUND MY MIRACLE PRODUCT! exactly like the descriptions says - I am multicultural and have been searching for what feels like ever for a product that works for my hair. I'm half black/half white and nothing seemed to work. Gels make my hair crunchy or flakey and mousse or other creams just didn't do enough for my hair. This product is the perfect middle. It's heavy enough to handle my curls but light enough to not be crunchy or "gel looking". My hair is so soft, touchable, and smells fantastic! I have long, thick hair and after wearing my hair down and touching it all day it still looks great.

I could not be happier - I finally found the product for my hair. HOORAY!
