Most Helpful Positive Review Defines my waves and leaves my hair soft
I have long, naturally wavy hair so I like to accentuate them whenever I allow my hair to air dry. OGX Beauty Locking Coconut Curls Air Dry Cream has a light, coconut scent and leaves my hair feeling soft and bouncy. The cream blends easily into my hair and leaves my waves defined, bouncy and touchable without leaving them stiff like other products like mouse or gel tend to do. I apply this to my towel dried hair, a couple of pumps is all it takes to treat my hair and I absolutely love that the style lasts all day and it actually makes my hair feel healthier and defends against fly-aways. I'll be replacing my other curl enhancing/styling products, I get amazing results from this one product so it's a keeper, no more wasting money on multiple products for my curls - this one does it all.
Most Helpful Critical Review At least it smells good
First let me say, I have coarse, thick, color treated, naturally frizzy hair. I NEVER blow-dry. I have tried several products by OGX and normally love them. This cream was not a good match for my hair at all. It smells really good, with a nice coconut scent. The cream didn't seem heavy at all. But it straightened my top layer so much. I used this on days that wasn't very humid. Within 2 hours my hair was so frizzy. This cream did not help add definition to my curls. It basically left me with a fuzzy mess. I did follow directions and put on my wet hair and scrunched. Normally as I am getting out of the shower I have a really good conditioner I comb through and leave in. With only the conditioner my hair looked better than using this cream.

This was just okay...I much prefer the old Moroccan Oil Curl lotion - that was much better in my opinion as a base layer before styling products.
OGX - bring back the Moroccan Oil curl lotion!!
Pump didn't work
Sophie from USA
I had ordered this online, and when it came the bottle and pump were separate. I put the pump into the bottle but it seems as if there are missing parts, so nothing came out of the pump. I have to pour it in my hands, which is fine, but if the pump worked it would be more beneficial.. This is not the first time an Ogx product has broke. However, it did make my waves bounce and create a tighter curl.
Surprisingly good! Soft + volume!
heatheradair from seattle, wa
This stuff surprised me -- it's simple, good, smells nice, it's not fussy.....essentially takes your hair's natural texture, wave pattern and.....let's it do it's thing without interfering much. Strange way to describe a product. Here's the deal: I have long, fine (fairly thin) hair. It can be QUITE curly if I "coax" it a lot (layer on leave-ins, cocktail creams and gels, diffuse for an hour, that sort of thing). BUT -- I don't want to spent 90 mins on my hair. I want to spend 5 minutes and let it air dry. I've been on the hunt for A SINGLE PRODUCT I can toss in towel-dried hair, let air dry and have "reasonable"-looking hair. I know with one product I'm unlikely to get all the perks (probably not a combo of frizz-control, curl-definition, volume and hold exists in ONE PRODUCT), but I'd like to have "nice-looking" hair that doesn't need a hair dryer. BUT - this does a NICE job of taking my natural hair texture and "preserving" it while it dries. Very little hold, but some nice soft frizz control. Not amazing curl enhancement, but some small amount of volume. It doesn't so much "change" what my hair does so much as it "stays outta the way" and allows my hair to be wavy, beachy, it feels like there's NOTHING in my hair, there's ZERO cast, no-product feel, but definitely adds some volume and softness. I was *QUITE* surprised. Was looking for something to replace a Very Expensive Brand that gives you 5 oz of something that you'll tear through in a week. This seems to fit the bill. No heat required, some gentle definition, plenty of volume and hair that FEELS LIKE HAIR. Will be experimenting with using different amounts of this, but I'll definitely re-purchase. It "does a little, very well." Allows you to work WITH your natural hair, without requiring a lot of effort.

I have relatively easy curls to manage. Thinner hair with loose waves. Even still, this did nothing to take the frizz. Might be nice for a leave-in conditioner, but nothing more. Will be returning.
Autumn from Chicago
I love this. I've tried so many curl products for my wavy hair. I pretty much only use high end hair products but I tried this. It makes my hair really soft and defined. I hate it when curl cream leave a sticky residue and this doesn't. I have mid back length thick wavy and really dry and damaged hair.
My New Favorite Air Dry Cream!
Ami from Oakland County, Michigan
Pump the product into the palm of your hand, rub product together with both hands, apply to clean/damp hair with focus on your ends.
Great for Fine/Thin/Wavy Hair!
H Marie from CA
I would definitely purchase this again. I have always struggled with my hair, as it is not straight but not curly and when it air dries I look like Mufasa! hahaha So I always flat iron my hair! Well... I have finally found something that does not weight down my hair or make my hair greasy or crunchy. I literally towel-dried my hair and then used this and scrunched my hair. After allowing my hair to air dry, I actually don't hate it! This is a big deal, people! I think I may lay off the flat iron a bit. :-)
I would buy again

smells good and the thickness of the product is good and doesn't weigh my hair down
Evie from Brooklyn NY
I have used different kinds of curl products and I'm pretty amazed at how this is pretty good, not crunchy, very very low cast, price is good.
I would buy again
Whitparis from Alabama
I use on my damp hair and just scrunch it through my hair and let it air dry
smell is not pleasant
Kay from Concord
I usually love OGX products especially the smell, but unfortunately this one was not pleasant and really just gave me a headache.
Nice scent but not enough hold
Coffee_Mom from St. Louis
I am always on the hunt for the next great product for my curly hair. After trying this product, I have mixed reviews. It has a nice scent that isn't too strong. It has a nice consistency - not too watery and not too sticky. But overall it just didn't have enough hold for my curls. After a few hours, the frizz set in and it was back in a ponytail.
Amazing! Even on Wavy hair!
Annaliese from Indio,Ca
My hair has always been the dull wavy type but I recently cut it (thanks to quarantine) and my waves somewhat came back. I needed a product to help moisturize and define my wave and this is the product! Other products always left my hair too greasy but this formula is not heavy at all, has no bad scent, and really defines and locks in my waves without any weird texture! The dream! I use it on wet combed hair then I flip my hair over to scrunch it up so the waves form and let it air dry! Definitely recommend if you're looking for something to use everyday that wont take up a lot of time.
Angie from Florida
I've been looking for something to give me defined waves and not just weight them down or give me an overly oily look. This cream does the job and it's great for air drying or defusing. I've even used it as a touch up cream for in between days to tame frizz.
This stuff rocks for fine wavy hair
Beautylover from WA
This product doesn't weigh my fine, wavy hair down but manages to provide good definition and hold. My hair air dries soft, touchable and manageable. Best of all, it doesn't have silicones, so it's CGM friendly. Unfortunately it does have polyquats, so I have to clarify a little more often. I use this in conjunction with the Ouidad gel and my hair stays good for 3 days--that never happens.
Great for an after shower cream too
Coleee23 from Indiana
I don't have curly hair, I have very naturally straight hair with some little wave underneath if I let it air dry. I just used this as more of combing cream and I loved it. I don't blow dry my hair unless it's a special occasion or I'm in a hurry and my hair dried very soft and I think it may have added just a small amount of body. It smells great too! I know its not made for straight hair but I would definitely buy it again.
Great product for curly hair!
Cindy from Central Valley
You can use this product right after you shower and let your hair dry naturally. It will leave your curls looking healthy and bouncy.
EmmiKitti from Illinois
First time trying the Locking + Coconut Curls AIR DRY Cream.
I followed the directions on back of bottle, combed and towel dried my wavy curl hair, split my hair into two sections, two pumps per side, fingering combing and scrunching.
This is great Solo.... it adds so much moisture into my hair!
However I personally started using this in addition to the Curl Definition and the Mousse.
Grace from Pennsylvania
I would use this product after i got out of the shower. My hair is wavy, more on the curlier side. It did make my hair smell nice, but didn't enhance my curls. Even after I diffused it, it didn't give me what other products do for my curls.
Best for fine hair
Veronica from Portland
I have medium strand, medium density waves with random spirals. It gets weighed down easily but still needs a lot of hold to be frizz free, so it's hard to find that happy medium on a lower price point. This comes close, when I use a lot of it. For chin-to-collarbone length hair (layers), I use two full pumps, one for each side of my hair, and air dry. It's enough that I have to scrunch to "soften" the curls. The smell is a little annoying, but it fades. I've had this stuff for a few months and can't decide if I will repurchase, but I'll at least finish the bottle. Also, this stuff sucks with diffused heat or as a cream to scrunch out crunch from gel/mousse.
Favorite curly hair styling product!
Michaela from Norwalk, CA
I've used Locking Coconut Curls Air Dry Cream for a month now and my curls have never looked better! I used to use the Curl Milk cream, but it weighed down my curls. The Locking Coconut Curls Air Dry Cream makes my curls more defined and gives them hold to last throughout the day without making them look crunchy. Because my hair's not being weighed down, it also helps my hair air dry faster.
I part my hair down the middle, use two pumps per side and run it through my hair. Then I use the OGX argon oil and run that through my hair and then scrunch up. Lock it in with the Sebastian hairspray. Gorgeous curls!
I have thick 2C hair. Hope this helps! 10/10 recommend.
Hbpyall1 from Coats, NC
As someone with naturally curly and ridiculous hair, I was thoroughly pleased with the outcome of using this air dry cream. Most creams cause my hair to be too greasy or too stiff but this one gave a pretty natural curl bounce which is what most of us strive to achieve!
starrbrew from Arkansas
This truly helped to tame my frizzy wavy/curly hair during air drying! I mix it with the other curling cream (white bottle) by this brand and LOVE it!
Smells great, does nothing
Thea from IL
I air dry my hair nearly every day. My hair is wavy (2B) and average density and thickness. I use a mousse for my hair, but wanted something to prevent frizz better. This product smells great and applies easily even on dry hair (tried this as a last resort). Unfortunately, my hair soaked this product up very quickly and it did nothing. If anything, touching my hair when applying this product just made me lose my normal wave definition. Maybe on finer or thinner hair this would work better?
Jmmead693 from Elma, NY
I got locking plus coconut curls air dry cream. I have wavy fizzy hair so I tried this as I just air dry my hair it helped a lot with the frizz and gave me nice curls. I will probably buy again once I'm out.
