Works great on my fine curly hair

My hair is by definition multicultural and I have several different textures in my head ranging from loose waves to tight curls. My hair is dry and tends to frizz as I live in the tropics. I generally need a LOT of moisture. So I bought this hoping it might do some good and I was happy to say that it did! I initially thought it might be a bit heavy as my hair felt a little weighted down and coated on the first day. But it was beautiful in the second, third and even fourth day! And I never get pretty day 3 hair far less for day 4. My hair was soft, hydrated, and my curls looked lovely. I give this product a thumbs up. It works really well for me.

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!

Not meant for me

I do not have multicultural curls. I have white girl curls and so my fair is very fine and easily weighed down. This was a bad product choice for my type of hair.

Okay so I am multicultural. Mexican/Filipino/+5 other dashes of other ethnicities. I have kinky, curly, wavy, and mixed textures in my hair, and I have a lot of it. My biggest concern with my hair is taming frizz and keeping my curls together. On my best days I have a natural finger wave at the top of my head that transitions to ringlet curls, with this product I kind of halfway achieved that once. It made my curls soft, loose and somewhat manageable.

However! Since that one time this product has not worked for me. My hair was frizzy and the curls wouldn't stay together. I tried applying more but that just made my hair look greasy and made my hair cling to my head.

I've heard people rave about this line of products but so far I've tried this, Jelly Soft Curls, and the leave-in Condish. None have worked for me and I'm not a fan of the scents.

Miss Jessie's Multicultural curls
SampledPurchased

I buy this product for my dear sweet cousin who loves loves loves this product. She has told me that it's the ONLY product that takes away the frizz from her usually frizzy hair and also makes her very curly hair much smoother so she thinks this is her liquid gold and since she's only used it the two times from Birchbox, once by a sample and then she bought the tube I felt bad that she didn't tell me she loved the product so that I could have purchased it for her so this time Im getting it before she has any chance to buy it for herself. BRAVO Birchbox for another GREAT product that is especially so for any women who have very curly/frizzy hair.

worked wonders!

I used this product and found that it held my curls beautifully! No frizz, soft curls...not that stiff feeling most products leave. The true test was in SE Asia! It worked pretty darn well with all that humidity in Laos and Vietnam. My curls stayed frizz free all day...no an easy task. I love this stuff!!

For those with mixed hair

This is an all-in-one miracle product. I've almost eliminated all my other hair products for maintenance. And it smells amazing!

Black/Indian Hair Review
Purchased

I used this product after showering on damp hair. Dried with a diffuser and applied more product. I'm not 100% sold on the product. It has a great scent and my curls are super soft, but I personally like more of a hold with my product. Over time my hair still is prone to frizz.
