Most Helpful Positive Review Good styling creme for volume and body
I almost did not try the free sample of this Nitro Memory Creme after reading the reviews, but I thought what the heck, I can always wash it out if I don't like it. First, I will say that I have very fine, thinning hair, which tends to frizz and is "bob" length. I only used a small amount (about the size of a quarter), rubbed it in both hands and applied it to the roots of my hair, then used my hands to smooth the outer layer of hair (my frizzy layer). I blew my hair dry and styled it. Yes......it did make my hair feel a little dirty at first, but that seemed to go away by the end of the day. What I did notice (and my hubby did too) was how much fuller and thicker my hair felt and looked. No, sadly there was not really any "memory" left in my hair the next day or the day after, but what I did like was that my curling iron worked much better and faster, and my style was still full, not flat. I went right out and bought the full size one at Ulta! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was that at first the smell was overwhelming (smelled like a man's cologne). I think I'm used to the scent now because I hardly notice it. I use Kenra Platinum thickening shampoo & conditioner, Nitro memory creme and Blow-dry mist.
Most Helpful Critical Review No Style Memory
The first time I tried it, I used way too much product and my hair looked full but did not retain any style whatsoever. I figured I weighed it down, so I then watched Kenra's promo video to see how to properly use this. I followed the video and sectioned my hair, used a small amount of product on each section, blow dried with a round brush, and then curled with a 1.25" iron. I was hopeful because my hair seemed to curl easier. I also left the curls tighter than I usually like but my the end of the day my all curl was gone. Maybe a little bend at the ends, but that was it.

Generous use of product to really get hold
Not for me
vpaps from Ft. Myers, Fl
I love Kenra products and have used them for years. This is one product I have to say that for me it wasn't good. I have short, straight but thick hair. I also have a headful of cowlicks. I normally use the regular Mousse or gel but thought this might be worth a try. I found it to be very heavy and I felt like my hair always needed to be washed.
Actually kept my hair curly
Sierra from Seattle WA
I used this on a Saturday and curled my hair, which usually falls out by the end of the day but this kept it curly then left me with beautiful waves next day then wavy body on third day.
AMAZING PRODUCT LEAVES HAIR SOFT AND CURLY! NO FRIZZ!!
My3girls from Clarksville, TN
Use right after I shower, works best. Feels great in my hair.
This really works for volume
Sooze from Missouri
I was leery about using this product. At first I thought it was a mousse but it's actually a cream and it works really well. it gives you a nice volume and holds style for several days. Not sure why some of the people reviewing said it was so sticky because once you massage it in, it feels really good in your hair and helps hold the style well. I would definitely buy it again
Nice creme for curls
sarahk814 from Sterling Heights, MI
I use this product on my very frizzy curly hair. It does a nice job of moisturizing the curls and leaving them soft. But it's not quite enough control for me, so I add in Kenra's sugar spray and together these products do the trick.
Great Product, Terrible Can
Plander from Dawson, GA
I loved the product; however, long before the can was empty it stopped dispensing. For the price of product, one would expect to be able to use until can was empty.
Love this! Really works on my thick hair
Yellow Tulips from CA
Only negative I have is the spout is poorly made. I had to throw away half my first can because I couldn't get the creme out. Other than that its fantastic!
Barb from Omaha, NE
I have thin fine hair, this is the only product I have ever found that really helps with all that! I highly recommend it.
Great Product for Fine Hair!
Gloria from Texarkana, TX
My hair is very fine with a tendency to frizz. My stylist uses this product on her fine hair and asked if I wanted to try it. It is a product that gives my hair weight, texture, and will control the frizz. I use it with a thickening product on the ends and Kenra thermal hair spray.
Jen from Sylmar
I love the hold of this product as it leaves my curly frizzy hair in place. The only downside is that at the end of the day my hair feels sticky.
My Bottle Must Have Had Amnesia
Lola from Hutchinson, KS
Applied after washing & styled. My hair felt greasy & weighed down. It didn't hold the 1st day let alone the 3, I think, was claimed. I may have applied too much for my very fine, straight hair. But I wasn't going to waste my time trying it again.
Bought it by accident...
Flygal from Phoenix, AZ
I have previously purchased another Kenra mousse. I thought I grabbed the same product. My hair felt so much softer with this one. I have naturally wavy hair and with the right product and I diffuser I can get it to curl. Love this!
This stuff is the BEST!
LailaK from Syracuse, NY
I am so happy I found this! I have a very fine hair. I used to use multiple different products trying to get the volume but ever since I found, I only use heat protective spray, then this before blow drying and finish with volume/texture spray. I know this doesn't have great reviews but I think the trick is to use only a little amount. Spread it evenly all throughout your damp hair and then dry your hair. My curls look amazing after using this and they hold for a few days! This is the best find!!
Frahmer99 from Wisconsin
Tried this product in my hair 5 times and all it does is weigh my hair down and makes my hair look hard and greasy.

I love this product! My hair stylist used it on me and I liked it. It gives great body and shine and flexibility.
Karen from Radford Va
I like that I don't have to wash my hair everyday when I use this product.

GAME CHANGER FOR THE CURLS
Simone from Sioux Falls,SD
I love this I use it actually for curly hair! I have 3A curly hair and it holds them all day! Not scrunchy wants the cast is complete dry and tossed. Need to use more so it's a coated. But it keeps them boundary and keeps volume! I use canssss of this. And if straightening and the curling it works great as well
I'm very surprised
Sabryna from Orlando, FL
As someone who has coarse thick dry low porosity curly hair I have to say that this may be a new holy grail of mine. honestly for someone who uses creme and mousses on top of each other every single day I was very surprised and happy when it came out it was fluffy but also a creamy consistency. And my hair looked great for days and smells good too. I will be purchasing again! But I do agree if you have fine hair steer away from this. But if you're hair is curly and unruly like mine, I would say give it a go.
HJS from Oklahoma City
It is definitely a cream, feels greasy in hair before dry . Takes longer to dry hair, but has kept my style through out the day
Returned this product!
ladyBug2178 from South Dakota
This product was a disappointment. I was super excited to try it out. I have been using Kenra products loyally for over 15 years, so I was excited to give this product a try. Unfortunately, this was a fail. It weighed my super fine short hair down (while only using the smallest amount), and made my hair look super greasy!! Definitely did not have any style memory. I tried to love it - but ultimately ended up returning the product for my Kenra volume mousse extra 17!
Nikki from Charlotte, NC
I could hardly get a brush through my hair after using this product and drying and styling my hair. I usually wash my hair every 3 days but will have to wash it again after 1 day because of how dirty feeling and rough this made my hair. This is getting returned.
Tere from Texas
I have been using this product for about a week. The first time I applied way too much and my hair felt dirty like others have noted. I read that it was suggested to use a dime size amount. I tried that, but it didn't seem like enough. Maybe a nickle size is more like it for me. But the jury is still out on whether I will continue to use it. I feel like it weighs my fine thin hair down at the roots.
Nope...can design is defective
TX CA Girl from AUSTIN, TX
I returned this product twice so this was my third can. Every single one of them broke after third use. Love the product but they need to redesign the can. Very surprising of Kenra, as I use many of their products!
