      Comments about Kenra Professional Curl Defining Creme 5:

      I have thick, wavy, long hair. I usually let it dry and keep it natural and i don't style it too often bc it takes too long. I use this stuff daily. It controls my frizz, and defines my waves without making my hair sticky or weighing it down & it looks like I did style it! Makes my life easier.

                I can't say enough good things about Kenra products! This curl cream is heaven for wavy/curly hair! I have both... curls and waves. It doesn't leave your hair crunchy like mousse or gels. Nothing but soft hair!! No frizz!! I've received multiple compliments on how great my curls look. And This stuff smells sooooo good, like strawberries! Will be buying this for life!

                  I've tried ALOT of gels/mousses/curly hair products in general and for my thinner, curly hair... and this is bomb!! You only have to use a dime size amount and it makes your curls defined without feeling crunchy or gel-like. It's more of a creamy texture. I've been using for 2 years now and I put a small amount through my mid to ends and then use a light hairspray and I'm good for the entire day.
