Most Helpful Positive Review i wasnt exactly sure what this product…
i wasnt exactly sure what this product was meant to do at first but what i noticed right away was that this product left my hair feeling silky and smooth! it took away all my hairs frizziness and also helped protect from any unwanted static that my hair usually experiences in the dry winter air. i used this product every few days since i only wash my hair about once a week and it has kept it looking smooth and fresh on all my non-wash days. so whatever this product was created to do, i dont think i really care, because its working great for me! :) i would recommend this to anyone who wants soft, touchable hair!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sooo the conditioner is my favorite…
Sooo the conditioner is my favorite but I was not the biggest fan of the gloss... After showering, I put it in my hair when it was still damp. I threw it up in a bun (I try not to use heat products on my hair) and left it dry. It definitely creates shine but I felt it was a little thick and heavy compared to what I usually use. Maybe I put too much product in (I am known to do that....problems with my massive lion mane for hair ). I suppose if you leave olive oil in your hair it has a similar effect to a coconut oil leave-in conditioner, more suited for course locks. I would recommend this product for someone with very course, dry or frizzy prone hair that usually uses lots of oils, moisture, and coconut oils.

I bought this while it was half off because I dont use silicones, had wanted to try this brand/product for ages, needed a new leave in cream for my mid lengths-ends, wanted a non spray/oil shine product. I have belt length extremely thick+dense 2a hair. This took all the shine out of my hair whenever I used it, wet or dry. I had to use the rest of my shine spray after blow drying(normally I just need a few sprays of it),later my husband commented that my hair looked more matte than usual. It's a glue like lotion consistency that barely spread at all, even pilling in wet hair, with a basic fake fragrance. I gave an extra star because it washed out np & helped hair stay soft after drying wit less weight than some, applied to dry hair it also added softness, creating hellacious flyaways tho. I might not have returned had it added any moisture or didn't leave a v. matte finish that can't be fixed till next wash. Since I'm already silicone free, I know its a bad product, not my hair, and I'm super grateful Ulta returns sale items so I wasn't ripped off by Fekkai.
SAD- BRING BACK THE OLD PRODUCTS!!!!
MR841 from Chester Springs, PA
I used Fekkai exclusively for years. LOVED how my hair felt and looked.
No longer! Why did you change it? WHY, WHY??????
Now I have to buy all my products from my salon...but I'd buy Fekkai if the originals were back.
Mandyz from Chicago
Please bring back original!!!! Worked way better!!!
Miss the old one!!!!!

I don't know why they replaced the old brilliant glossing creme with this. No where near as good. I'm moving on from this product line.

I wanted to like this product, but it fell far short of the original product. Unfortunately, the original is no longer an option, so I won't be purchasing Fekkai any longer. Sorry!
Miss the original.
Ckg from SC
Miss the original sooooo much. I still can't find a replacement product that lives up to its performance. It's what made my hair fabulous.
Please bring back the old one product!
tseward from AZ
I used the Fakkai glossing gel for years. It was the only product that worked on my hair which is curly and very fine. I tried the new product thinking that they just updated the packaging, but I was very wrong. This perfecting creme is NOTHING like the glossing gel, it simply does not work at all. I used it once and will have to throw the whole bottle away because it is terrible. I am so upset that the glossing gel was discontinued. Now I am in search of another product that will work for me. Please bring it back!
Bring Back the Old Glossing Cream - PLEASE
Roxie59221 from New York, NY
I had been using the old Brilliant Glossing Styling Cream for years and loved it so much. This new version does not even compare, I'm not sure it does much at all for my hair to be honest. Please, please bring back the old version!
My gold standard for 10 years.
Love_skin from San diego
On wet hair before blow dry. Helpf with frizz
You had the market cornered and you blew it.
Maureen from Midwest
I have been using Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styying Creme for years. I have short hair with body that just needs a little direction. I don't use heat on my hair. After shampooing and while my hair was still damp, I would put a dime-sized dab on my damp palm, rub them together and scrunch it through my hair. Any time during the day I could dampen my palms and scrunch again and it was good to go again. Nothing else worked like this. The new product was made to handle a whole different customer. What was the point? Please reconsider your decision to eliminate this wonderful product.
Not as good as before
Dissapointed from Connecticut
Not sure what happened, but this product isn't the same. This was THE ONLY product I used for YEARS to keep by hair manageable. It used to be able to blow dry my hair straight and it would completely smooth my course, frizzy hair, now the new formula makes my hair feel tacky and I can't run my fingers through it. PLEASE go back to the original formula. I'm so dissapointed and can't find any other product that can compare.
Bring back old version
MAM123 from Westchester Country NY
The new version does not help with frizz. Why did you change what was working well?
EFR333 from Sarasota, Florida
I used it on towel dried hair and dry hair. My hair is so soft and frizz free which is hard thieve in florida! Piece of advice to people that are used to the old line that was full of silicones, you have to give the products and your hair at least 3 weeks to adapt and rid your hair of the silicone buildup. I promise you that after that you will never use silicones again. Your hair will go back to its natural state. Smells so good!
Forget it. it is not the same
jessi from undisclosed
Why did Fekkai destroy a great product???? I hope they bring back the old Brilliant gloss, it was really brilliant. this multi tasker is the worse. it is heavy and it simply does not work.
Miss the old Formula!
Joann330 from Neptune, NJ
I ran out of the Brilliant Glossing cream which I have used for years and found they replaced it with this product. To be honest it is no where near the same as the old formula. I have very dry curly hair that I blow dry straight. The old formula was so nourishing and conditioning and the olive oil really helped with the dryness. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any product that even comes close. Please consider bringing back the old formula. You will have many happy customers if you do!!
A complete fail as far as a replacement goes.
pwill from oklahoma
This is a complete waist of money. Doesn't do anything for your hair , no shine or softness.
New formula is TERRIBLE
Bjohn from Memphis, TN
I LOVED the original and have used it for several years. This stuff is NOTHING like the original formula and it TERRIBLE. I am very disappointed.
Where is the original glossing creme?
mbrkie from Bozeman Montana
I bought this after not being able to find my original fekkai glossing creme anywhere, and boy am I disappointed! Why would you try and fix something that is not broken? That has been my go to styling cream for 6 years! I am never without it. It smells amazing, is lightweight and makes my hair feel and look great. This is not even close to the original product. Super disappointed and no longer a fan of fekkkai.
I'm SO TIRED of this company discontinuing amazing products!
Tigerlily7979 from Los Angeles
I have long loved Fekkai, and have been using their products for almost 20 years. Back in the day, I used their original curl line, and my hair has never looked so good! I was devastated when they discontinued it, and had to change shampoo/conditioner brands because I hated their new curl products so much. However, I continued using the glossing cream for years. Now, they have once again discontinued an amazing product, and replaced it with total garbage. I don't know whether they're replacing their ingredients with cheaper ones, or just have terrible, out of touch leadership, but now I'm done with this brand for good.
Miss the original Glossing Creme !
Kim B from Vermont
I recently received the Brilliant Gloss Multitasker - I had been a long time user of the original Brilliant Glossing Cream - which worked so well on my thick , coarse colored treated hair ! I was so disappointed that it was no longer available so I thought the new replacement would be even better - was I totally wrong ! It did nothing for my hair except make it feel greasy and heavy - couldn't wait to wash it out - and I used a dime size amount . I contacted customer service to return but was told because it was opened I could not return - but wonder how they would think I could have tried without opening the tube ??
They sent a few suggestions of a shampoo and conditioner to try but now I am stuck with a product that I can't use ! Would definitely not recommend this new replacement for a holy grail product that they have discontinued- PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL!!
Please bring back the old formula!!
Cynthia from Kentucky
I am known for my hair and it's because of the Brilliant Glossing Creme. I can't believe it got discontinued. This is like what they tried to do when they introduced New Coke! Don't mess with perfection!!! Please bring back the old formula!!!
Sassy Sasha 48 from City Island, NY
I just started to grow my hair after being in the hospital for six months and five brain surgeries, a stroke then on life support for 2 months. I have new growth finally... It's finally about 4 inches in the back from being shaved off for my surgeries and on life support for two months. My hair was to my mid back before all this happened. I love this product, it leaves my hair/curls soft and shiny without weighing it down. I have about 4 inches of new growth. This product seals the shaft and leaves my hair soft, smooth and shiny. I highly the recommended This product. A must have.
madi from los angeles, california
i love how little weight this product is on my hair! it smells good and i will definitely buy again!
Amazing stuff !
Sold from Washington
This is the only product i have found that gets rid of frizz and leaves shine WITHOUT greasing down my fine hair !
Yay finally NO SILICONES! Curly girl approval.
Doolie from D.C.
So I have always loved using this when I straightened my hair back in the day. When I decided to go silicone free for my curls, I had to give this up due to the plastic feeling on my hair.
I will say, wow! This is curly girl approved (without silicones and parabans) and it works! It actually works!
I will say people aren't usually happy with new formulations of a product, And I have been guilty of this myself (thank you suave for the change in the coconut). I think that with time, people will start to understand that they need a detox period from using silicones. I know I did!
You have gained a customer back that's for sure!
