Most Helpful Positive Review My #1 Cannot Live Without
I've tried it all. Moroccan oil, Ouidad, Ojon, Coconut Oil, you name it. Nothing seemed to help me hold on to the definition of my curls. I have very fair skin, but kinky, frizzy, and unruly curls. Curls that I just knew could be beautiful if handled right. A stylist used this Styling Balm on my hair. He separated my hair into sections and told me to keep the sections wet before applying. I have long-ish hair, (past shoulders,) so he told me to use two pumps per section. He ran his finger through each section and told me to make sure every strand gets covered. And then he scrunched. After, to secure it, he put an ultra hold gel on. We let it dry, scrunched open the gel barrier and OMG. There they were - the curls I always knew I could have. That was six months ago and folks, coming from a woman who straight-ironed her hair DAILY for FIVE YEARS, I haven't straightened it ONCE since finding this product. If I could give it 11 stars, I would. Those of you who find it heavy - maybe your hair isn't as dry, kinky, curly, or frizzy as mine, but this doesn't way MY hair down at all. I fear the day this goes off market. Fear the day.
Most Helpful Critical Review Thumbs Down
I was recommended this product by my curly haired friend who is also a hair dresser. I've been using the same curl cream forever, so I thought I'd give it a shot after I saw the reviews. I was super disappointed. The cream is so thick and sticky it can't really be worked through the hair. I managed to work it through my wet hair but it made my hair so dry. Even after I washed it I felt like it was still dried out from the cream. Maybe it would work better for someone who has less curly hair, but my curls need lots of moisture and a workable cream. I'm sticking with Curls Rock for life!

I wanted to love this, especially since it's ridiculously expensive, but I can't. It made my hair limp, heavy, look greasy, and didn't control frizz. So disappointed.
You have to try more than once
M from USA
The first time I tried this I did not like it. I had just washed my hair but I have extremely high porosity hair due to dying, and I did not lock in the moisture by simply using this alone. I decided to give it another try and the next time I tried it with the Curlsmith Soufle and the results were pretty awesome. I ran out of the soufle but I later used the Dippity-Doo Girls with Curls Gelee and my curls have so much shine and definition. I braid my hair at night with some of the balm and whichever of the gels above and use a tiny bit of hair serum and OMG bomb hair for days! I highly recomend if you are thinking of buying. I have, 3A-C hair with dyed ends.
Cote from Palm Harbor Florida
Great product. You only need a very small amount. I put ir on my hair after my leave in conditioner, and then I apply a gel.

CurlSmith is amazing!!My hair craves it..
Debz from florida
Always on the lookout for products to tame my wild curls and believe me I have tried a ton. Bought this one based on the reviews, but it didn't quite do it for me. Found it left a dulling film to my hair and did not control my frizz as well as other products I have used. This one missed the mark.
Actually curl enhancing!

I have fine, medium-density, high porosity, wavy hair (2b/c). I really only thought this would work on someone with thick, curly hair. Boy, was I wrong.
This product has saved me from 2 different bad product wash days and make it look like I have 3a ringlets. It's the best curl cream I've ever used and it really plumps your hair and turns my waves to bouncy curls.
For those with fine hair, start with a little bit of balm. It's somewhat thicker than I anticipated but I've yet to use too much.
This pairs well with the curl soufflé. (I'm surprised I like that one too!)
I'm buying the full size.
Better than I expected!
Brydie from IL
I didn't think a creme would do much for my hair except weigh down my curls. I was wrong. I tried it and it did the exact opposite. It made my hair beautifully curly, soft waves, not crunchy like many products. It's perfect. Go out and try it!
Something that actually works
Burby from Savannah, GA
I have fine naturally curly hair which is also graying (so many problems with this mop!). This is the first product I've used that defines and shines my curls without weighing them down. My hair feels soft and relatively frizz free. Happy hair day to me

Love this product
BEST THING FOR THIN CURLY HAIR
wambambrina from Mercedes, TX
I use this product after showering w the conditioning wash, & the oil-in-cream, it holds my curls perfectly!! i also like to re-apply in the mornings for any top frizz i might have. i have thin curly hair & it's hard to find products that don't weigh my curls down or feel too thick. this is life-changing!!
Weighs hair down
Jersey from Florida
Gives hair a nice shine and tames frizz well, but it's too oily for my hair.
Weighs it down and makes it super crunchy.
Supposed to be light hold, but it was much more than that for me.
I really wanted to like this product...
Cill G from New Mexico
Everybody seems to love this product and I really don't get it. My hair falls flat and frizzes up within an hour of using it. It claims to have amazing moisture but honestly my hair felt SO dry. It did feel soft though. I gave this product a fair chance but for my hair I just couldn't get it to work. It makes me sad because I really really wanted to love it.
Kathy from Hanover pa
Love this product! I have thick course wavy hair, and with this it is smooth with soft curls, and NO FRIZZ!
Love, love, love this product!
I would purchase this product again!
Brit from Chicago, IL
Y'all, this product is amazing! I have very thick, frizzy, curly hair and I've tried tons of products. This works amazing in my hair. I bought the 3 step system as well, and together my hair turns out perfect with barely any frizz and bouncy curls! I will DEFINITELY continue using this product.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

I cannot express enough how much I love the CurlSmith brand!!! Talk about food for your hair! Yes it is a little pricey but so worth every penny!!!! (Especially, when on sale!) I definitely recommend this product!!! So far I've been using this particular one for at least 6 months and have nothing bad to say. It leaves my thin curly hair looking bouncy, healthy, and refreshed without being hard. It's awesome!!!! Buy it, I promise you won't be disappointed! Me and my kids ages 8 and 3 use this. We all have different texture curly hair. The 8 year old has thick curls while the 3 year old has thick tight curls.
I must be the only one
Stacey from Phoenix
I can't stand this line. All of it leaves my hair very dry and brittle. I'll admit it does work on the curls but it leaves it very crunchy and breakable. Not what I need
Ambi from Texas
Most gels make my hair heavy and crunchy but this one doesn't
So far so good
Rhi from Cleveland, OH
I have long wavy/curly hair.. I washed it last night & put more than a quarter size amount all through my hair. let it air dry over night and this morning I woke up with more defined curls, less frizz. We'll see how it looks later when I'm out in the heat. so far so good
This Stuff Is AWESOME!!
Kari G. from Minnesota
After struggling for YEARS to find something to tame my frizzy 3a hair without weighing it down, I found this and couldn't be happier! I applied this to soaking wet hair, then used the soufflé, plopped, then dried with a diffuser. My curls are touchably soft, springy & defined. Plus, this line is CGM approved. So SO happy!
marissam from Wisconsin
I love this curl cream! I have wavy/curly hair that is coarse but not thick. This stuff really enhances my curls without weighing my hair down. For me the best application technique is to scrunch into wet hair and then top with a thin gel, then diffuse. I also use a small amount on dry hair to add moisture and refresh a bit. The product doesn't work as well for me if I just air dry. Also, I really dislike the smell of the products from this brand but luckily the scent is not lasting.
fantastic for super thick, frizzy hair
mk from michigan
i always tried the whole scrunch then t shirt on my head then diffuser, no matter what product it was it always frizzy and looked disheveled. with this one, i put hair oil on after the shower, brush w a wet brush, put this in ends to roots and like tousle it a little bit and go through it with a comb, and it's perfect beach waves. O B S E S S E D. i have like an ungodly amount of thick frizzy hair too, and this changed my life
Katy from Connecticut
I put this on with my leave in conditioner while my hair is damp from the shower and my curls come out beautifully and hold SO WELL.
I would buy it always
