            My curls have never looked better!!! I've tried a million and one products to find something that's moisturizing enough for my 3A curls, but not so greasy for my fine hair. This is the holy grail.

              Comments about Redken Curvaceous Curl Refiner:

              I was looking for something to really condition my waves/curls and this does the trick. My hair doesn't feel weighed down and isn't greasy, but it doesn't actually define anything. I will probably buy it again, as it doesn't leave my hair crunchy. I am not a fan of gels.

                I bought this as a leave in conditioner for my fiancé's super dry curly hair. No matter what he has used to control the brittle, dry curls nothing worked! I went with a recommendation for this and he loves it! It leaves his curls very nourished and doesn't look dry and he doesn't have any breakage. He issues this daily and loves it! So happy to find something without spending a million dollars!

                  Lives up to it's name and price. I never knew I had such great waves until I tried this product. I get my hair done at the Ulta salon and the stylist recommended it for me. She used the product on my hair after my haircut. This product has shown me the beauty of my waves. It works so well that the waves activate right out of the shower. I have experienced zero frizz, awesome hold, and great shine.

                        A:

                        Curvaceous Curl Refiner is not a detangler. It is formulated to deliver moisture and frizz control. Take a look at Curvaceous Conditioner. It can be rinsed out or left in. When detangling is desired, leave in for optimal results

                      I was told to try this product at the salon to gain my curls back ? Would I use this as primer ? Then use another product to style my hair ? How long would you need to use this product until you see the difference ? Considering I just got my hair professional dyed (no bleach) , cut , shampooed , a deep conditioner treatment , etc .
