How to Use
Rated 4.24 out of 5 stars
I really enjoyed using this! I wanted to be able to try out the different products without committing to full sized packages in case I didn't like it. I've been learning how to style my 2b/3a waves/curls and was recommended this line. I'm not sure what the cream does but I use that and the gel on wash days. Don't be afraid to use too much gel, you can just scrunch it out if need be, but I never had to. I don't think I initially used enough! It has a much softer hold than the mousse, so you gotta use more product. I'm going to buy the full sized of the gel and cream because I liked those, will continue to test out the mousse and see. I would say this lasted for like 3-4 washes, enough to know whether I liked it or not/it worked, etc.
This is a great set to try these products without spending full price for each item. However, I am not fully in love. I will describe why below:
First, I am not a fan of the smell. Each product leaves a very pungent odor on your hair that I can only describe as a fake fragrance/product alcohol type smell. I could smell this stuff even after I showered thoroughly the next day.
Second, if your hair is not fully wavy this stuff will NOT help create those waves. I found a major difference in the results if I plopped my hair first to bring out my waves before applying product rather than just scrunching my hair with these products and not plopping my hair. The products themselves just have no hold to them to help you achieve and lock in those waves/curls.
Third, my hair felt like it had product in it and did not feel soft. It actually felt uncomfortable throughout the day. However, when I looked at my hair in the mirror, my hair looked shiny and not like it had a hard cast of product in it which was nice. Just felt producty.
Fourth, major product buildup. I got these little white dots everywhere in my hair the day after using these products which was NOT cute. My guess based on application would be the cream and gel do not seem to work well together.
All in all, if you have naturally wavy or curly hair these should be fine. However, if you want a product that will help give you more waves/curls I would look elsewhere. Also if you are sensitive to smells I would stay away. I am glad I tried this because in the end, I like to keep a curl cream on hand for when I curl my hair and this will work perfectly. But for me, I am just not a fan of these products if I were to use them for a natural wave routine because my hair needs more help than these can offer.

I like all three products separately and all three together. They're instructions on the box about how to use all three and that's my fav way to use them!! Holds tight and no frizz!!

After using these products on my hair they left my hair feeling sticky and my hair was very frizzy. At the end of the day my hair felt crunchy and when I would run my fingers through my hair my hands would feel sticky from the product.

Best advice is section your hair in 3 and apply product, this way it is applied uniformly
Nina from Katy, TX
I applied this product on washed and detangled hair. I applied the cream first, then mousse then gel. Diffused my hair til halfway dry, then let my hair air dry completely. I bought this small set to see if it would work for my hair and I really like it. Kept my hair with normal volume and defined curls, and soft.

All hair is different and what works for one, may not necessarily work for all. There are a lot of good reviews on videos and blogs for this product line (especially the mousse) and I was excited to be able to try it first without buying full size products. This kit has plenty of product to get a good idea of whether it will work for you or not. As for me: loved it. Price is better than the on-line only curly brands, too. I will definitely be trying more from this line and buying full size!

Please make product without fragrance!
Ash from OR
Did what it was supposed to. I have long hair and it can be difficult to scrunch my hair but it worked well with this set.

I love the way this stuff makes my hair feel it makes the curls look smooth and beautiful idol hate wearing my hair naturally curly because of the phrase but this product works wonders. Highly recommended

I love this trio. You get a curl balm, curl mousse and curl defining gel. I did find that using three at once made my hair look a little flat and greasy but using one to two items at a time really defined my wavy hair and made it look smoother.

Didn't do much to curl or even make my daughter hair more wavy or curly. So I wouldn't get this again I had high hopes but didn't work! My daughter has curly hair already and it couldn't even help the curls.

Works great on my daughters hair. Used this on my 5 year old whom was born with curly hair. It revived her curls and left it looks silky and smooth. The smell is good too which is a plus. It's very gentle and would recommend to everyone

This kit is perfect for travel. Each item is only 2oz which is perfect for air travel. The kits comes with 3 styling essentials. Gel, mousse, and curling cream. These products are perfect for my 4c hair. It gives my hair curl while holding it in place with added moisture.

I love the product I will buy it again.

I used these products in the order it said on the back. I used my diffuser afterwards.it gave me a lot of Volume and made my curls more defined. I had some frizz but only near the roots at the top of my head but that was probably me from using my diffuser to dry my roots. If you wanna try this brand this travel size is the way to go! I just might buy the full size when I'm done with these cause I loved them so much! Smells awesome too

I have straight black hair which i would like to curl without the diffuser. These products help a lot and looks very natural

When I first used this is made my hair dry and my curls extremely tight. The less product I used the better the results were. My Curly hair is damaged and I have been using Olaplex No3 for over a month to repair it. I just started using No0. Upon using the No3 my natural 3B curls are coming back, currently I'm more of a 3B/C. When I used the styling cream on my wet hair made them really pop with little product and when my hair dried it was very soft. My hair was and is very manageable when I use this product. So when they said it dhows your natural texture, they did not lie. I think all the products are great but I heart the styling cream the most and I will purchase it again after it's gone :-) If you did not receive good results, try it again with less product❤️

This kit was great! The products in it were super easy to use and pretty inexpensive. It's a great way to try out new products without spending lots of money for the full sized. My natural hair is a frizzy mix of waves and curls, so I would straighten it every day. I've been experimenting with new curl products and combined with their shampoo and conditioner, these are by far my favorite! They give my hair pretty defined waves/curls without the frizz! Plus the smell so good! Definitely recommend.
EC from WV
My 3b/c usually takes to new products easily but this set has made my hair so incredibly dry. My hair is often super soft, smooth and tangle free regardless of the products I use but my hair actually feels dead because it's so dry. I also found so many tangles in my hair using a wide tooth comb and I can't even remember the last time I had tangles. This might work for you but definitely be weary. I only used a small amount and it still did this much damage to my hair.
Benitamt from IL
these products pass the smell test (i have tried others that made my curls look great but the smell was a turn-off!) My hair does not like coconut oil so I was happy to find that this line is not a coconut oil product.
Kimme from Simi Valley
If you've got curls, and love to let it dry naturally, but run into frizz, all three of these products are amazing! Convenient way to easily try each out before hand too so you'll know if you want to buy the full size
