    My go to styling product

    Comments about Kms California Curl Up Control Creme:

    I've been using this product for over 6 years! I keep trying other comparative products and this is still my go to. I have a frizzy wavy hair. I like to style it with a curling iron into loose curls. Because this is thick, I usually apply it to wet hair after a shower and add a conditioning spray on top for protection. It absorbs in the hair very well. Not sticky at all. And it holds my curls very naturally and holds for 3 days without hairspray. Love it so much!

      I've replenished this product twice! I like it a lot! I've tried several and this works well. Two pumps for my hair and works better when hair is wet not drenched. I always get perfect curls and stays throughout the day. Soft curls. If I want curls to hold better, I used the spray curl up. The spray smells like alcohol though- stinks!

      Comments about Kms California Curl Up Control Creme:

      I am a Caucasian Female, but my hair is very curly and gray (But professionally color treated), so its course as well. The Curl Up Balm worked perfectly to control my curls and keep them contained. When KMS discontinued that, I purchased the Control Crème. I just don't get the containment from this product and my curls get frizzy often within a few hours. Please, Please, PLEASE bring back the Curl up Balm !!!

        Comments about Kms California Curl Up Control Creme:

        Since Ulta discontinued selling the KMS Curling Balm I decided to try this product. I am thinking about returning it though. It doesn't define my curls as well as the Curling Balm did, I don't see much difference in my curls with this product. Not much frizz control either. It's a very weird texture too. I wish Ulta would bring back Curling Balm.

                I use it after shampooing. It works to control my newly emerging curls.
