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.

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 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

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.

Oki2ki from New Jersey
I am super happy with the products. Two weeks of use and my hair is totally another hair. Smooth, defined curls. Caring for all care for curly hair. I have never had my curls like now. I can't believe the results, I'm happy. I recommend the products

Best products on the market
Cml from Orlando
I gave this cream a go once before wasn't a fan because I was also using devacurl, the last few weeks I got rid of all my Shea moisture and cantu products, switched to curlsmith cream, flex gel and intense serum... my hair ia popping and I have gotten tons of compliments. My curls are 3a
Im in love...
Curls-natic from Home
Im in love again with my hear, this product leaves it smooth and frizz free. It is so soft that I cannot believe it can give you curly hair/ringlets like that. I wish I had purchased this before I cut my hair because it was so dry and parched. This has definitely be a 360 for my curls. To say the least I never thought I had the beautiful curls I get after using this styler. I'm in loooove! 😍 I recommend and will buy again and again! 🙌🏽 I do pair it with the soufflé and co-wash with same line but it still a soft feeling throughout.
Soft, frizz free curls
LC from MO - Missouri
I have long, naturally curly hair prone to unbelievable amounts of frizz. I use this after a bit of gel and it provides fantastic frizz control with soft, crunch free curls. Best I have found and I've tried a lot.
I have found my forever hair product!!

I use about a quarter-sized drop for my medium-length hair as a little goes a long way.
Love this product.
Susie from Louisiana
I use both the In Shower Style Fixer and Hold Me Softly. Normally I apply the In Shower Style Fixer to wet hair then wrap my hair up in a tshirt overnight and let it dry naturally. In the morning or during the day I will bottle spray a small amount of water to get my hair going in the right direction and add a little more product. I prefer the Hold Me Softly gel in the morning and sometimes during the day if needed.
Nyah from Austin Southpark Meadows
My daughter loves this product. She said left her hair felling soft and beautiful. She also said left her hair smelling nice.
Best product ever!
Mari from Las Vegas
I have really thick and dense hair. This product is so lightweight and I don't feel buildup on my hair. I used it with the curl soufflé and this is now my holy grail. My curls haven't looked better
Have only used once
Missy from Redondo Beach
Not as much hold as I would like.
Best hair cream ever!
Coco from Tn
So I stopped using product in my curls years ago because it seemed like they just affected my curls negatively, dried out my scalp, etc. I tried this and suddenly my curls have no frizz, curl better, look better for longer between washes and feel so soft.
Curlylocks from Florida
I've always had issues managing my curly, frizzy locks until I began using this product. I shampoo, condition and add a small amount to my damp hair. I also use some scalp/hair milk oil and scrunch it all in. Abracadabra! Defined curls! If works for me.
Soft bouncy curls!
Btow247 from IL
I recently bought this product and let me say - it is amazing! I twisted my hair last night after washing it and this morning my curls came out defined and super soft! My curls are actually moving which they normally have not done with other products I use. I have 3c hair and this product is perfect! It is more expensive than other products I have purchased but it is well worth it - a little goes a long way.
Finally! Something that works perfectly!
Docjessp from Pittsburgh
We have been looking for a way to coax out my daughters gentle curls while taming her frizz. This is perfect. We have tried countless products, this is the first that kills her frizz (especially during our coronavirus lockdown and no haircut in a couple of months) Without weighing down her curls. Will be buying this on,y from here out.
Mesh from Delaware
I applied after my leave in- primer to wet hairs. Wet brushed through to ensure product was dispersed. I then proceeded to diffuse my hairs following Manes by Mells' technique.
Holy Grail Product!
mua.autumn.wormtongue from San Antonio
I was looking for a replacement for the coconut styler from deva curl, or demon curl, and this did not disappoint! Definitely moisturizing, helps with frizz, and actually has a little but of a cast when it dries. Will definitely be repurchasing when I run out!
Great replacement for Deva Curl products.
CJM from Virginia
I use Hold Me Softly Styling Cream with Curl Smith Styling souffle gel in the tub and The In Shower Style Fixer gel.I apply the Styling cream on my wet hair. I apply the Styling Souffle gel next. Then I apply a small amount of the In the Shower Fixer gel to the ends. I diffuse my hair and the results are magical. I get soft shiny bouncy curls.
I wanted to love it, but...
Cookie from WI
This product worked well with my 2c/3a curls and provided softness and a light hold. However, the smell! I couldn't take it! It reminds me of the smell of some medicine that I had to take as a kid, and it makes me a little sick to my stomach! If Curlsmith made an unscented version of this curl cream, I'd try it, but this one will either go back to the store or be regifted!
Ok curl hold, not good for frizziness.
And from Tennessee
Product is ok to hold curl but doesn't do a thing for frizziness.
Will definitely be my go-to for summer!
mcl103 from Chicago, IL
Just a nickle-size dollop covers my shoulder-length hair, letting it air dry, leaves me with the best curls that last all day. I absolutely LOVE the smell of this awesome product.
Use every time
Samantha from Temecula CA
Everything in this product line is a 5 Star product. I do use this every time after washing my hair. First some curlsmith oil in cream as a hydrating primer. Then this. Gives a soft beautiful hold. Sometimes I follow with the in shower styler gel if I want a more defined curl that lasts for days.
