      Comments about Kms California Curl Up Control Creme:

      I LOVE this creme. My hair dresser recommended KMS to me a while back, but I wasn't too eager to give yet another product a chance. I was constantly trying new products and it was always yielding the same results: oily, limp and unattractive. I have fine wavy/curly hair. Every day is a different experience. For years I have diligently blow-dried and curled my hair every other day just to feel polished and styled. But recently I had a baby which meant less time. And I also wanted to be able to have healthier hair without foregoing actually looking like I tried to get ready in the morning. I tried using argan oil and scrunching, another friend recommended a non-professional brand and I tried and hated it, I used mousse and hairspray. But it always made my hair feel greasy and dirty afterwards. I could never go two days without washing my hair if I didn't just blow dry it straight. I just started using KMS after my hair dresser insisted that it would work. I combed a bit of it through my hair after showering. I scrunched it up a bit with my fingers and let it air dry. The first day it looked textured and smooth. My curls had definition and they were shiny! The next day I woke up looking clean! My curls had been a little smushed after being slept on. So I combed my hair out and worked a couple of squirts of the product through my hair again. It had the same effects of the day before and even better! My hair still looked clean but it looked voluminous and textured. That doesn't ever happen to me no matter what I have used in the past. I don't think I could ever go back. I LOVE KMS. Would recommend it to anyone with wavy/curly hair for that "I didn't even try and my hair looks amazing" look.

            I have used other KMS products which smell great. Unfortunately, this one didn't work as I hoped nor did it smell good.

                Use in your hair wet or dry. It's not sticky or heavy and feels flexible in your hair. Almost like you don't have anything in it. Best I've ever used and I've tried a lot of curly hair products!

                    This product hands down is best for bunching my curls for drying with the diffuser.

                        Comments about Kms California Curl Up Control Creme:

                        I have naturally curly 3a/b hair. I've used every product imaginable and have been air drying / diffusing / scrunching for years and years. I was in Ulta to buy another KMS product and saw they had a Buy 2 Get 1 Free promo. I hopped online to find the best rated KMS curl taming/enhancing product and this was it. Because it was so well rated here an another place, I took the plunge and purchased 2 of these. BIG MISTAKE. This stuff is thick like paste, very difficult to apply and made my curls look awful. Luckily it didn't leave my hair frizzy or matted but as it is, my curls have no definition at all and just look terrible. I'm definitely returning this stuff!

                          Great for daily use. This is the only styling product I've ever used that consistently defines and holds my curls all day. I've tried many other products, but always come back to the Control Creme - I've been using it for more than five years.

                              My hair is frizzy, especially in the Florida humidity. This is great at keeping the friz away. My hair is curly so I just let it air dry, this is the best product I've found to keep soft curls, and yet keep the friz away! My favorite, and I've tried lots!
