This product is clearly a creme that is not shy to define, and give your hair a subtle yet noticeable shine. IMMEDIATELY after drenching my hair in water, and applying the product, I barely had to touch my hair, and the definition was VERY apparent. Y'all, when I say, I was shook… I have never in all of my 21 years of life had a product instantly define my hair upon application. I barely had to finger comb. It for sure provides a nice element of moisture as well, and I find that the more I've used it these past couple of weeks, the softer my hair is getting. I'm not 100% sure if it's this product, or some of the other products that I've been using in my hair for the time being, but I do know that this is clearly the moisture and defining agent in the squad of hair products I've been using. This product has chia & linseed oil, babassu oil, and coconut oil in it, which are clearly carrying the product and running so that it doesn't even have to jog on it's own. Babassu oil is known as an oil that promotes high moisture retention, which seals the moisture into your hair shaft (ideal for high porosity hair types), and you know lack of moisture retaining products in your haircare routine is one of the #1 causes for breakage.
Chia seeds are rich in fatty acids which work to not only penetrate your hair shaft (great for low porosity hair types), but seal in the moisture as well. Linseed oil is the same as flaxseed oil, which is high in vitamin E, and not only treats hair loss, but promotes growth. For my dry scalp peeps, flaxseed oil also can be used to prevent dandruff, and can provide relief. If you have damaged hair, or chemically processed hair, this is very ideal, since it has great moisture retaining properties, and it seals damaged cuticles.
My only con is that I have been noticing slight flaking on certain occasions, but that happens with whenever a bad combo of products is mixed. I highly recommend!
Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for my honest review so these thoughts are completely my own.
This product didn't wow me but it wasn't bad either. It claims to define your curls better but I found that my hair looks pretty much the same. It doesn't really have slip though, so I would put a leave in first then this. So would I buy this product? No, personally. Would I recommend this product? I feel like if your curl pattern is 4a or looser this might be good for you because my 3c was defined in the back (but as I said it pretty much looks the same with or without it in my hair at least). Not much to say about this lol
Side not: if you don't regularly put anything in your hair to define it, of course you're going to love this lol
Also, orange shirt (with moon and stars on my face) is WITHOUT curl creme and burgundy shirt (half up half down hair style with the pink hearts) is WITH curl creme

This is the best for coarse curly curls highlights only 1 problem the container bursted out the wrong end. BUT its so good I will keep & continue to use!
Di from St Louis MO
It helps w/ curl but I bought it to replace a product from Lush that added shine, body, & "crunched" curls without making them stiff but has been discontinued. This product is nice, Quai is a good brand, but doesn't replace the Lush product, isn't tacky like a light paste, no shine or crunch!
Katheryn from Las Vegas, NV
I bought the cream and the spray for when my hair is dry. Both are fantastic.
I DON'T EVEN NEED TO USE HAIR SPRAY ANY LONGER. Thanks.
Stephanie from Weeki Wachee, Florida
I love that this product leaves my hair soft and curly, with no sweet smell!
Jaclynkate from Providence, RI
I liked this right and fine. The smell was pleasing but light. For some reason all my other cream creams are heavy and smell like grapes or green tea.
I had no frizz all days I used this.
I'm taking a star off because it was a tiny bit heavy for my roots and the skin on my jawline did feel a bit off or greasy.
I just have ridiculously sensitive skin
Jennifer from West boylston, Massachusetts
I liked that this hair product is fragrance free and didn't leave my hair feeling weighed down, but only noticed minimal change in my curls and how much my hair would tangle after the product was in.
Nessy from Nj
So i had frizzy annoying hair and honestly this changed my life. Its my go to and it changed my hair and made it soft and perfect. I love ir
Erin from Melbourne, FL
I loved this curl crème. You can use it on wet or dry hair. I like to use it on wet hair and either just let it air dry to bring out my natural curls or twist my hair into the desired curls. It smells really good and doesn't feel weird when it dries.
Dani from Atlanta, GA
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion. I really liked how this product is fragrance free! Don't get me wrong, I love when my hair products smell great, but sometimes I have to be around people who are sensitive to smell. Also, if your like me and have to use at least 3 different products for you hair to curl, sometimes the smells clash. So, with this being fragrance free, I can pile on other products to make my curls pop while not having too many scents going on. Again this did not magically define my curls and make it pop. But it did reduce some frizz, had flexible hold, and slightly defined my curls a little bit.
Missy from Texas
It took me a couple of tries until I finally figured out how to use this in my curly hair routine. I definitely saw a difference in my curls. I use this before I add curling gel.
Isha from USA
Used it on my curly/wavy protective style and it made the curls pop again and was moisturizing. Didn't notice it doing much for frizz but I do love the way it revives the curls and adds In moisture ! I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

I received this product complimentary to give my honest feedback. I'm not super impressed with this curl creme. The product had a light pleasant scent and decently defined my curls, but no more than typical, cheaper products. I wasn't impressed with the level of hold either. My hair overall felt greasy after using as well. I wouldn't recommended.
Daniellel from Mobile,Al
I really am pleased with this product. It gave me all the volume and definition I need when trying to do my stretched out twist out. I stretched it out first for elongation but I can't wait to see what it does on a regular twist out and see how juicy my curls are forming from wet to dry curls.
ambs from Houston, TX
This product is great for curly or wavy hair. I've applied to wet and dry hair. It is light weight and moisturizing. It leaves my curls and waves feeling bouncy and doesn't make my hair feel crunchy. I recently cut my hair that was down to my tailbone. My hair went from wavy to curly and this cream keeps my curls looking nice! Would reccomend giving it a try.
Tori from Los Angeles, California
This product did not make my hair crunchy at all. My hair does not feel caked with product and makes my hair so soft. I have used it ever since I received it complimentary.
Anne from Detroit, MI
I enjoyed that this product was unscented since scented products usually irritate my sinuses. Unfortunately I didn't find this product very effective. It did okay at cutting down on frizz but I didn't notice that it helped with much else, definitely didn't make a big difference in curl definition. For me, this is not something I'd get again. I like to be able to wash my hair and go and this is a product meant for that kind of routine. In my included photos you can see the minimal difference between my regular air dry without product curls and the air dry with the curl creme - the difference is negligible and not worth the additional time or effort in my opinion. You may have different results if you blow dry your hair, I wouldn't know bc that not something I do. For reference, my styling 'technique' is: applied to towel dried damp hair after a shower, gave a few scrunches and let it air dry.
C from UT
Per my usual styling routine, I applied this creme to sopping wet hair, head flipped over, and used scrunching motion* from ends to scalp. Then used a cotton tshirt to gently sop up / squeeze water from my hair... *The instructions say to comb through.
I first tried using 1 tsp worth, but ended up super frizzy with lackluster curls that looked limp and lacked ringlets. I upped to 1 Tbsp and then 2 Tbsp, and I think 1 Tbsp is the sweet spot for my 3A curls. But overall: this made my normal ringlets stringy and weighed down.
Unfortunately, I used this product ~10 times and could not get a consistent good hair day. The first two selfies were good days, the others I wasn't super stoked on. Maybe it takes the more practice. Also, I wash my hair daily and given the amount of product necessary, I think I would blaze through this bottle in 3x faster than what I currently use.
So: 3/5 stars. Would maybe work better for another curl type.
Noelanigiselle from Connecticut
I used the product on my hair which is very thick and kinky. It worked fine but wasn't enough moisture so i gave it to a friend who has looser curls and it worked wonders for her! Definitely recommend to be used on wet hair.
Katie from Hickory, NC
This is a nice, thick curl cream. I put it in wet hair to style. My curls were defined and no frizzy. I have 3A curls and this was a little heavy for me. I think going forward I would use this on the ends of my hair and use something lighter on the top. Overall it is nice and I like using it.

I've really enjoyed using this, not a lot is needed, no extra unneeded fragrances. Really moisturizes the hair and helps to give your curls more bounce.
abby k from richmond, va
I love the fact that it is scentless! I struggle with highly scented products so this has been amazing!
Meg from Portland, OR
This is amazing. My curls are tight and intact without being crunchy. I just wish the cream wasnt so thick. But thats the only downside. Other wise i love it
Juliana from Naples Florida
Love love this cream I definitely recommend this to anyone who haves curly and frizzy hair because it really work it hold your hair very well
Momow from Malden MA
It does gives curls but I believe it better for less kinky hair type. It's fragrance free like it says so it doesn't affect your sinus
