            I have been complaining about my hair crossing for months..... it looks great after I blow it dry and within 2 hrs it begins to get frizzy..... I was told to try the Kendra curl cream......I LOVE it!!!!!!! My hair stays nice for 2 days,even in the humidity and rain!!!!!!! I also wash it with the Kendra frizzy shampoo every other day. I am a believer and I feel much better about my hair and how it looks

              Not as sticky as other curl creams. Definitely controls frizz and helps my hair air dry into soft, almost beachy waves. Smells nice too

                I love the product. It performs as advertised. But it should be in a tube instead of a pump dispenser. The pump is is problem because: 1. Little control over the amount of product dispensed. I want to be able to determine how much product is dispensed. 2. Once the product is 1/2 used, I have to manually push the tube up with my finger (from the bottom) in order for the product to dispense. 3. If I need a second pump (which I often do), my hands are already full of product and I make a mess on the bottle and have to rinse it off.

                    OMG! This product is seriously perfect. I have very frizzy fair.... Like Hermione, very bushy and crazy unless tamed via straightener or diffuser. I previously used John Frieda's Frizz Ease mousse for when I wanted to go curly, but it wasnt smoothing my curls like I wanted. I had a good experience with Kenra products previously and after researching online, I decided to try the curl cream! It is a MUST HAVE now and I will never go back. It cuts down on frizz and enhances my curls. It says one or two pumps on the bottle and that is true! A little bit goes a LONG way, and I very very thick hair that typically needs more than recommended, but not with this. Oh, and it also smells like strawberries and cream(just lightly, not overbearing!). Can't say enough good about it! :) It tamed the beast that is my hair!

                        My hair has gone from curly to wavy in some areas and straight in other areas. This product helped to define the curls and now helps to define the waves but is a soft control. I think it will end up to be my only hair product.
