    "I love your hair!" I get this all the time, along with, "Is that natural?" and "Your curls are so hydrated; they're not frizzy." The proof is in the pudding.

      Comments about Paul Mitchell Curls Ultimate Wave:

      I have fairly thick, wavy hair. The first time I used this I applied to damp hair, scrunched and let air dry. When it was dry I tried to go through it with a wide-tooth comb and ended up pulling a lot of hair out. The second time I used it I used the wide-tooth comb right away after I applied it to distribute the product better, shaped waves lightly with my fingers and let air dry. This worked much better for me and I was able to comb through it easier when it was dry. I have only been using about a dime-size amount, but I think I need to use even less since my hair is pretty thick and I like to be able to comb through it.

      Didn't work for my fine, wavy hair

        Comments about Paul Mitchell Curls Ultimate Wave:

        Unfortunately, this product didn't work for my fine, wavy hair. It didn't add definition to my curls or control frizz. Maybe if it was paired with another leave-in product it would work better, but I'll be going back to my tried-and-true Beach Bomb tousled texture curl cream.

                This product works great! I have fine, limp wavy/curly hair. I used just a small amount on damp hair, and it gave me the most beautiful waves/curls. It made them shiny and healthy looking, absolutely no frizz or crunch and held up really well in a very humid night. Definitely buy it!

                    It holds your natural curl without any frizzy ends. Does not feel hard and crunchy - curls look and feel natural. Will definitely buy the product again!

                      Ok so I guess you can say I have 3C-4A curls. I have thin, very curly hair. I usually just drenched my hair in a leave-in lotion/milk and I'm set. I have use cream gels before like Miss Jessie's and my hair has liked it so I decided to give this a try. Love my first and second day hair with this. I raked it thru each section while in the shower and scrunched after it dried. It definitely has a stronger hold than I would like, but maybe I used too much? I will give it another try using less product. After the second day my hair felt drier than I would have liked, so definitely not giving up on this yet since I only used it once.
