My new favorite hair product
Purchased

I absolutely love this styling creme. I have very long, naturally curly hair, so sometimes buying styling products can be tedious. I often have to use several at once. This creme does it all. I just use a touch, and my hair is soft, easy to style, and my curls don't get frizzy. I'm also impressed with how a little goes so far.

If you keep it away from your roots it's AWESOME!

I actually won a bottle for this in a Number 4 Facebook giveaway. The first time I tried it I used it all over on straight dry hair and it left my roots looking greasy. The second time I tired it, I used it on my towel dried hair, avoiding the roots, and let my hair air dry (I have natural wavy-curly). I am totally in love now! I may throw my hair dryer out! (kidding). Still, my waves have never looked so good. This cream gives them the perfect definition and totally fights the frizz. This is already in my Birchbox favorites and I will certainly continue to keep this in stock.

Didn't work for me

I got this as part of the stylist essentials set and it just didn;t work for my hair. I have medium length, big curly hair that is really thick and this weighted my hair down so much. I did love the smell of it though. I think this would work better for someone with shorter hair or longer wavy hair who is looking to get that beachy/piecey look.

Very heavy styling cream
Purchased

When I want piecey - looking hair, this is my go-to. It is especially effective at defining layers at the bottom of my locks. For me, it is too heavy to use at the crown; it weighs down my hair too much. In combination with other strategically applied products, though, it's a winner.

Not what I expected....
Purchased

This product has a nice feel, finish, and smell, but not nearly the hold that I had anticipated. If you're hoping it will accentuate curls or waves I think you'll be disappointed, too. Definitely does not fight frizz when there's any significant humidity out there. It isn't totally without merit, it is better than nothing and I really like how light it is and the smell, but for the price and quantity it is definitely not something I will purchase again.

Style for Awhile!
Purchased

I have a bit of unruly hair in small areas and curls in others but my hair is a beast of a different color when I use this product to tame the beast and even the little unruly hairs along my hairline and face fall into place! This makes a very zippy haircut possible. I LOVE THIS MAGIC CREAM!

Greasy feeling
Purchased

I bought this product because birchbox recommended it as the best styling cream and I have been searching for a replacement for my favorite which was discontinued. I found it made my hair feel greasy without giving my fine hair much volume. After trying it several times I have thrown it away.

Love this cream
Purchased

I used to use Bumble and Bumble texture cream but changed to to this brand because it used more natural ingredients. Love love love the texture that it gives me when used with with the protect spray.

Volume

I like the volume that I got from using this. I did not order it but I may consider it once I try a product that does not provide the same end result. I may find something that works better. Who knows. I wasnt "blown" away... lol

Very nice

It was easy to put on, and made my hair easy to style and added a nice shine. I put it on wet and then dried it. I could see a difference after I put it one. I liked the fact that the sample let me use it multiple times. It had a nice texture to rub it into my hair.
