Most Helpful Positive Review Nice, affordable styling cream
Mahoganycurls got me to buy this product to try on my natural, fine, 3C, curly hair. I've tried this on both wet and damp hair with similar results, but I feel that my hair looks fullest when used on damp hair after blotting with a t-shirt. As for curl definition, this product defines my curls for the most part with just the right amount of frizz to give my hair more of the natural look. Drying time is a bit longer than usual for me; it seems like it takes an extra half hour or so. I do feel this product is a bit heavy, so less is more, if your hair is fine-textured. Overall, I think it's a good, budget-friendly moisturizer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
Was looking for a curl cream to replace the one I was using that is discontinued. This is not it. This is more like a gel cream, very sticky, and has a strong peach smell that I am not a fan of. As for performance, I need to use other products with this and still find it's performance not holding up. I have very fine very curly hair for reference.
Reviewed by 150 customers it's pretty meh.

It's just a bland boring product. It's too sticky and it actually messes up the nice curls the matching conditioner gives me before using this product. It also has no particular scent which sucks because the conditioner smells SOOOOOO nice. Either way, I'm regretting not buying another conditioner instead of this awful stuff while they were on sale.
So necessary for my curls

Leaves my curls soft yet defined. Love it!
I don't like it.
Monique from TN
I have type 4 hair and it's naturally very dry. This product probably was not made for me and I accept that. I will not be purchasing this again. I just don't like it. It makes my hair feel weird and dry...DRY.
Decent cream for fine curls
Tess from Boston, MA
I have fine curls and have found a lot of curl creams weigh my hair down and make it super greasy and heavy, specifically the shea moisture curl milk. This is much more lightweight and works way better for my hair. Still had some frizz after diffusing, but will try more next time.
Good, but a little heavy for my hair!
Corrina Rose from NE
I'm really enjoying this combing cream, but I plan on trying something different when it runs out! I switched from It's a 10 to this and it works much better for me, but I think this would be best for someone with quite thick hair as it weighs mine down if I'm not careful with how much I apply. It smells so good, like candy, and does a great job detangling and defining my waves!
Enid from Puerto Rico
No more frizz, yesssss!!
Jordan from Florida
My hair feels rough? I don't know how to explain it but I don't like it I don't see the hype . The smell didn't bother me
this is the best!
Abby from San Luis Obispo, CA
I use this for refreshing my hair between wash days! This is my favorite refresher product. I also use it with leave in conditioner on my ends. I just brush through my damp hair with this all over and my curls are as good as new!
Steph from NJ
Some other reviews mentioned the smell-I didn't even notice it. I'm not sure what "type" of curls I have, but I have fine, naturally red curly hair. My curls love to not cooperate, so I usually throw my hair up or straighten it. With the covid-19 situation, I have not wanted to do anything to it. So I decided to embrace them and keep trying curly styles. I previously was using Deva Curl B'Leave In gel and liked it but for the price, this works just as well, if not better! My curls were not frizzy at all, like they usually are. The curls were well defined and once it fully air dried, I worked out the "cast" and they were soft and looked really nice. I would recommend it :)

It didn't smell good at all. The scent seemed more like cough medicine. I returned it the next day along with the rest of the line.
Courtney from New Jersey
Moisturizing and defining. Love this stuff.
No more frizzy hair days
CurlyGirlinDC from Bowie
So far so good. I love how this works in both my thinner hair and my son's thicker hair. We both have curly hair and generally share the same products. This is good because it helps maintain those frizzy moments without weighing my hair down. I use it daily after spraying mines and my son's hair with little water; works best if hair is wet.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
Carlie from Michigan
I love this product. I have been using mousse for years and I was so tired of having crunchy weighted down hair. I bought this hoping that it would control my curls and it absolutely does! It smells amazing, I have zero frizz, my curls are so soft, I have amazing volume, my hair feels light, and my hair feels amazing! I will continue to purchase tbis product forever and ever. The cost is great. I wish there were other sizing options other than 8 oz because I love it so much! I have spent so much money trying different products and this is the best one I have come accross hands down.
Added to my Wavy Hair Routine from Los Angeles, CA
My hair is naturally wavy and this cream works soooo well. It makes my hair smooth, smells amazing and instantly starts forming my waves as I comb it in
Curly girl from United States
When I tried this it was so bad I had to return it... if I used too little my hair would be dry, undefined, and frizzy. If I used too much and would feel dirty, gritty, and oily. I love the conditioner from this line but this product was not for me. I don't recommend.
crazy hair lady from CA
I've been using Curlsmith oil-in-cream but needed something cheaper for times when the budget is tight. This stuff is great! I use it in my hair before applying LA looks gel, then scrunch out the cast when its dry. This stuff weighs down my hair a little, but it's probably the best product I've tried for the price.
THE BEST curls definition cream I have ever tried
Tracey from TN
As an Asian girl with thick unruled frizzy curly hair, I keep straighten my hair in salon since middle school. However I was so bored with this kind of "flat straight" and started seeking different types of curl definition cream/oil, just try to see if I can make my curls less frizzy and more manageable. I tried different types of hair oil (Moroccan, Kerastease, Rene Furterer, Garnier, Verb, etc) or hair cream (Oribe, Phyto, etc). This is the ONLY product that do the magic to my unruly hair! And compare to above products, this styling cream is not greasy at all! I wish I can know this product earlier!
Must for 3b/c curls
Keeks from NYC
I love this leave in. I use it with the shampoo and conditioner and am on my second bottles. I love the way it keeps my curls hydrated and smelling good through out the day.
Works amazing and smells wonderful
ChelsieW from Tiffin,Ohio
I use this as part of my curly girl routine to give my curls extra definition and also it conditions your hair to cut down frizz. I absolutely love how this smells too it's perfect for keeping your curls bouncy and soft for days.
Great wash and go product.
Lovelyy KT from Chocolate City
This is great curl cream. A little goes a long way. Also doesn't leave your hands sticky or grimy. The only down side if you do over use you makes your hair a little crunchy.
works great on hair for styling and control
Kelgal from iowa
i like the texture, how the curls looked, but the smell at first was not pleasant, but it went away in 15 minutes or so... I would use this brand and type of product again...but NOT this SCENT.
Sticky and smells pretty bad
Sunshine Lulu from New York NY
I've been trying to find a cruelty free curl cream to replace my current cream. I was really hoping this would do the trick! My hair has 3a/3b curls and isn't thin nor thick, but somewhere in the middle. I opened the bottle at the store and this cream smelled pretty good; but after I applied it and let it air dry in my hair, it smelled terrible! The overall feeling of it made my hair feel sticky and heavy, although it did keep my curls in place, I was hoping for a lighter softer feeling.
Hate the Smell
KenKayla from Aiken, SC
I can't even use this line and I bought the whole thing. To me it smells like a greasy scalp. It doesn't make your hair smell clean what so ever! It grosses me out.
Would buy again
