      Comments about Paul Mitchell Curls Ultimate Wave:

      It doesn't seem to matter how much I use, my hair always ends up crunchy. I put it in and let it airdry, I can't get my hands through my hair without because it's glued together. I put it in and comb through my hair to try to distribute it more, it still ends up crunchy. Any my hair is still frizzy with this. I think I'll switch back to my Aveda curl cream.

        I have short wavy hair with hilights. This product helped tame my curly hair and kept the frizzys away.

          Comments about Paul Mitchell Curls Ultimate Wave:

          This is seriously my holy grail hair styling product. It's one of maybe 3 brands that are cruelty free and actually work on my thin, porous, wavy hair. I scrunch in when it's damp, and let air dry or use a diffuser and I've got beachy waves. I'm terrible at hair styling, and this is the easiest way to a good hair day.

            "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.

                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!
