I've been using Briogeo for years. Usually, I use their leave-in conditioner (amazing). It's heavier and turns my curls into waves which I love for air drying. Otherwise, air drying my curls with any other leave-in conditioner products over the years just leaves them frizzy, limp, or stringy. I don't use gels or mousse because I like as little products in my hair and it's allowed them to become healthier. This was my last leave-in conditioner to try and it was everything I wanted. I use the exact size they recommend. I have very thick, chest length hair that springs up to my collarbone when dry. It barely had a smell and it smoothly absorbs. My hair ate it up and it air dried beautifully. I flipped my hair upside down, moved it around a little (not touching), and flipped back to the hair part I like. It had volume and definition to my mixed curls. I'm thoroughly satisfied and will now switch between this, the Briogeo leave-in, and Davines OI leave-in. Olaplex bonding is great to put a tiny bit in beforehand too.
All great 5/5 air dry products.
After looking and looking for curl products I really wanted something clean after leaving Deva Curl (which I still love). I fell in love with this line's ingredients and currently use Briogeo curly charisma co-wash and I love it so far. However, this curl cream is no bueno! I have fine/medium 2b-3a curl patterns. When I put it in it felt good and smelled nice and clean. I leave my hair to air dry always. It felt great putting in the hair, not too thin or too thick. But I noticed immediately my curls looked too tight, and as it was drying there was a crunchy feeling to it. After it finally dried, the crunch went away, but my hair looked frizzy, weighed down, and had no define for my curls at all. The curls, on the top of my head, were very tight and the rest of my hair was stringy. My curl pattern was gone. In the morning, my hair was a tangled mess. I Will be returning and trying a new product until I find the right one- I guess.

I am so pleasantly surprised by how happy I am with this and the other Briogeo products I just started using. I have very thick 3b curls that get huge and frizzy with nearly all products I use, especially if I don't layer a heavier gel on top. I have used the curl co-wash, as well as some of the frizz line, along with this cream and let my hair air dry to amazing, soft results. Might need a gel when the weather grows more humid, but overall am so glad to have given these a try!

This product tames unruly frizzy hair and leaves a wonderful scent. The effect is softe4, shinier hair, with well-defined curls. A little goes a long way.

I have spent SO much money trying to find that right product for my daughter. She's a 4B. For once her hair feels so incredibly soft, her hair keeps its shape and shines! All the other products either left her hair dry or looking ratty by the end of the day. I honestly can not say enough good things about this product!

This product is really nice. It has a good smell and did enhance my curls a bit more. I did feel like it made my hair more frizzy which might have just been it bringing out more of my natural wave. I will have to try it a bit more before I decide if I would purchase it again.

So I have used many many curly hair products over the years, and many different techniques starting with sitting in front of a heater, and scrunching my hair to dry it. The Briogeo Curl Charisma definitely works the best for my hair type.
I have fine, thin type 3A/B, low porosity type curls and most products either weigh my hair down for being too oily, or don't have enough moisturizer, but Briogeo has the perfect balance. In the picture, I washed my hair with "Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair Shampoo," and "Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask" and then followed up with the Curl Charisma, and plopped my hair- that's it. The gel has the perfect hold for my hair type so it isn't weighed down, but it doesn't make my hair frizz either, and I don't need addition products. My curls are well defined, and I don't even need to use a diffuser.

I love this leave in. It smells sooooo good and it absorbs into my hair and offers some great hold. I layer with other products and love how it looks. I think it is a good price for the value and will continue to repurchase.

I have fine, wavy hair that is weighted down easily. I don't think that this does as good of a job defining my waves as a few other products I've tried.
However, it leaves my hair soooo soft and is a good option to use as a leave in to save time or for extra softness when I also use a wash out conditioner.
I think for people with tighter curl patterns this could help define their curls by softening the hair and making the curl pattern more visible.

I have thick, slightly course/frizzy 3 b/c curls. I have been slowly finding the best combo of products. Curlsmith has been a savior. Using their conditioning wash and Bond Rehab starts my wash day. Then I use the curl styling Souffle mixed with this wonderful leave in conditioner. creates shiny defined curl without the frizz I have battled in the past. Also love the way that this product smells, nice and light and mixes well with the Curlsmith scents. ❤

I Love it many many thanks to the girl who recommended it

I decided to try this shampoo out because I love Briogeo's hair masks. It's a great product overall and the scent is amazing, but I prefer thicker shampoos because my hair is so coarse and thick. This shampoo had a more thin, liquid consistency. I found that I needed more product to thoroughly cleanse my hair. It didn't leave my curls stripped or dry which is a huge plus, but I think there are other shampoos that better suit my preferences.

I got this as a gift & was skeptical when I read "creme". I have thick, 2C waves & have never had success with anything other than strong hold gel. I kept using gel, I tried so many!, even though I wasn't ever fully happy with the results. I'm thrilled to have tried this - I love it! My curls are defined & held, look & feel soft, no frizz! It takes the guesswork out of whether or not I look like Bride of Frankenstein or a normal human!
cristinav82 from Fort Lauderdale
Have gotten some good curl definition with this leave-in creme. It's an affordable product, too! It doesn't have any hold, so I do not use it by itself. It works best when I section my hair while damp, apply it, then section hair again and apply gel or another cream.
RIA from CT
Ran it through my damp hair. Sometimes diffuse it or sometimes air dry. Both ways ended in the same results.
clfreeman from Marion
One of the absolute best curl creams I've ever used for my wavy hair. I can use it alone for soft waves for a natural look or add the gel for more definition!
Patti from South Carilina
I really love this product. The price is great and it helps my curls look beautiful!!!
areliaz from Sierra Vista, AZ
I like using this styling cream for my daughter. It defines her waves and smells great!

Don't really see the difference in my hair to purchase again. Smells ok, but is expensive to use regularly

First time i tried this product it didn't work well for me. I have 3A-3B wavy curls. I tried using it again after treating my hair with olaplex and other deeply hydrating conditioning masks. I applied this leave in defining crème and it worked well. My curls are bouncy, healthy and well defined. Nice product ! It's a creamy texture not to thick with a nice scent. It's quite pricey but it is a really good hair product. Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino Avocado Leave-In Defining Creme

This product is great for curly hair. It defines your curls and doesn't leave a cast!
nataliad6 from East Hanover, NJ
Lovely scent, nice non sticky texture, easy to use, nice results on my hair. I use it with their other products as well as with other brands.

This product seems to hold my waves a little bit, but hardly. I won't buy again.
apaulso2 from Chicago, IL
I love the Briogeo scalp scrub but was super disappointed with their curl line. This just weighed my hair down and added nothing to the curl or volume.
taylers6 from Emporia, KS
HOLY GRAIL. I love the smell, the way my curls look, and the fact I don't have any frizz right now!! If y'all knew me, you know my hair is FRIZZY. This product is amaaaazing!
raquell51 from Lansing, Michigan
I love this stuff. I use on my coarse, very
thick, very long (down to my hips), 3a curls. Very easy to use.
Definitely recommend! Smells AMAZING!!!
jenniferp414 from Miami, FL
I love this brand honestly. It makes a difference on my hair from the moment I started using it. It is really worth the price and the smell it's amazing. Definitely give it a try Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino Avocado Leave-In Defining Creme
