    Comments about Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream:

    This stuff is awesome!! It gives me a greater wave then other products did. The wave stays in even after i have had it up in a ponytail and has never had with other products.
    I would recommend this to anyone with curly or wavy hair.

    Comments about Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream:

    I had high hopes for this product as this brand shampoo is awesome. But I was very disappointed. It seemed to hold my curl just fine, but it left my hair feeling like straw! Plus it was quite pricey - certainly too expensive for daily use. I'm still on the look-out for a good product that will hold curls and waves, and leave my hair feeling soft. Unfortunately it is not this product.

          My curls are hit and.miss and tend to frizz. I also have very fine hair and this is not too heavy. Recently moved to a more humid environment as well. Just a.little will define curls and keep frizz down. Still soft to the touch.

          Comments about Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream:

          I have fine hair which frizzes easily without product. This made my hair look dull and didn't really activate curls before or after blowdry. Luster curl activator worked much better and was better value.

              Not For My Curls

                Comments about Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream:

                My Ulta store was out of my usual AG Re-Coil, so I did a quick check of reviews for other curl enhancement products and purchased this one. I have 2C wavy/curly hair (see Shakira's hair for a kind of reference) that sits several inches above my shoulder. I like to enhance the wavy sections for a more curly look. This product does not do that, at least for my hair. It does smell wonderful and did not weigh my hair down whatsoever, despite being a crème product. I used a bit over a fifty-cent piece size dollop, but I found that after I defused my hair, my curls were frizzier than normal (especially at the ends), looked dry and dull (my hair is healthy and usually shiny), lacked definition at my roots (which I get with Re-Coil), and no real definition or enhancement of my waves/curls. I will play with it the remainder of the week (maybe it will work as a second-day hair reviver) but it may have to be returned this weekend.

                  Comments about Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream:

                  Activating Curl Cream is a great product, easy to use and works great. I apply a small amount to damp hair and work it through. I can then let my hair dry naturally or use the hairdryer with a defuser. Either way, I get great results.
