Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect for my 2c/3a Super Fine hair! :)
I have been following the Curly Girl Method (no SLS's, etc.) for about 5 months now, and have been searching for my perfect Product Routine. i started with DevaCurl and while my hair looked better than ever before, i still needed more Hydration and Definition. Tried 2 other product lines and finally found CurlSmith, LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!
This gift box was great price and i also bought the Curl-Oil Conditioner which i 1/2 rinse out with cold water before i apply the Styling Souffle. My hair looks amazing!
Things I Love (Souffle): Souffle air-dries into a slight cast for definition. Once you "Scrunch the Crunch" out, my curls are left Soft & Bouncy. I have not noticed any residue on my hair (just the opposite, in fact!), but i make sure to add the Souffle when my hair is still dripping wet with water.
Things I Love (Co-Wash): i do feel like this gets my fine hair clean enough. I work in a kitchen which is full of vaporized grease & meat oils flying around, so my hair gets pretty gross. I absolutely feels like this does a great job without drying my hair out at all. I will probably still use a super clarifying shampoo once a month or so though just cause i'm paranoid of having hair that smells like burgers. :0
Things I Love (Curl Enhancer): This is pretty much a leave in conditioner. I find it works great on my 2nd or 3rd day hair after i wake up, i mist my hair with this and a little water to "Re-activate" my curls and tame the frizz. Doesn't weigh my curls down, but i have added too much the first day i used it and the back of my neck felt like i poured a ton of lotion on it. Now i just cut it with a bit of water & it works perfectly.
OVERALL: absolutely in love!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Fell for the Shills
My usual routine is wash, condition, leave in, seal and style. These products proved that cutting corners is not the way to go. I have type 4 hair (a mixture but mostly 4c). I was initally shocked by the lack of lather with the co-wash but upon re-reading the bottle, realized it was "foamless." You're supposed to put it in, massage then wash out after 3 min. I followed the directions and finger detangled the larger knots. I then combed throw and to my surprise, the slip was actually pretty good. Still, my hair didn't feel clean. I even spread my hair to have it go in full scalp.
I then put in the leave in/curl reactivator. I did slightly start to recurl my hair after my comb detangling left my hair straight. It also worked as a good detangler.
Lastly, I flat twisted my hair using the souffle. It caused my hair to shine but my hair also started to fray as it got closer to the tips. I bonnet dried and unraveled my hair this morning.
While my hair certainly is curly and looks presentable, it's also dry, frizzy and has what looks like some yellowy build up. Again, my hair doesn't feel clean (feels grimy and sticky) and the souffle doesn't hold so I will have to wash and style again.
I will try again with a combination of other products but for now, in my opinion, even with the discount I received, it's not worth the money . . . don't believe the hype.

5 Stars for the in style shower fixer!
All have Amazing slip, and scent! 3 stars because other 2 products are just not a great styler for my hair type.
Softening and shiny curls
Fabiola from Undisclosed
The curl souffle is more of a medium hold, it forms a gentle cast that is very quick to scrunch out and my curls are extremely shiny and soft. I love the souffle but I do think my frizz comes through on day two, by day three it is very frizzy, I reapply the soufflé to help with frizz, I don't mind the bits of frizz because I like my hair to looks vibrant and soft, I've found that this gel does that. The moisture reactivator I have found that I like to use as a deep conditioner straight out of the shower, it leaves the hair feeling like silk! I don't think it kills frizz as a reactivator but it just adds shine and softness to the hair which make it look very healthy, and that's coming from someone who has bleached blonde hair. The styling cream I found to be a bit too heavy for my hair, I prefer the protein styling cream because it gives my hair more body and bounce, I think this is because my hair is high porosity due to all the bleach.
Sonia from Undisclosed
This gel has a strong hold, which I love because my curls last for days. The color shows up great too! Does not transfer to clothes or my pillow case.

My curls never looked better!!
Dry and no curl definition
Arrianna from Undisclosed
I was so excited to try these products and they absolutely failed. I used combination of all three like Curlsmith says for the best results. It simply left my hair so dry, no curl definition and my hair felt like it had a film on it. It was extremely frustrating. As soon as I stepped outside my curls work immediately frizzed. My Cantù products worked way better than this. If you have 3b/c hair I do not recommend any of the products in this kit. It's like putting nothing in your hair.
Reeanna from Undisclosed
I have natural curly thick coarse hair. These products worked great for my hair. Helped with frizz, held curl and kept hair soft (not crunchy)! Will definitely purchase again.
i would like to buy this product again.

Rebecca D from Massachusetts
I have THICK Brazilian curls and I'm INCREDIBLY impressed. After trying everything under the sun I'm pretty happy with the results after only using it once (so far 😊). I watched a couple videos, read some reviews and my recommendation is to do what it says. The smell is great. Overall no complaints. And this is my first time using this haircare line as well.
Great for trying things out.
Irene from Undisclosed
It was great to be able to try three different products in small bottles to see what I would actually like. I didn't really like the medium or strong hold products (I'd probably prefer something right in the middle), but the low hold option is nice before adding a different styler. Everything smelled good and definitely worked, I just needed a goldilocks level of hold.
Always have them on hand

As someone with type 3c/4a Caucasian hair and a life threatening wheat allergy, these products are a part of my every day routine with the addition of the light styling balm. The reviews stating it made hair greasy could be from not knowing the porosity of the hair. When used correctly for either dry or very coiled hair, the products do great. I found that they worked well in small quantities, less than half the recommended on family members with straight hair. They're a game changer.
Brooke from Oklahoma
I do not like this product at all. It made my hair sticky feeling and did not help my curls. It doesn't smell good and I had to rewash my hair to get the product and smell out. I like my hair soft and natural looking and this certainly isn't the product for that.
My hair is so greasy
Mar from St Paul, MN
I have been a curly girl for more than 15 years and I can't think of the last time a product (s) made my 2c curls look this bad. In general, they weighed my hair down and it look incredibly greasy. I don't think I used a ton of product so I figure they are not great for 2 curls, I can imagine they could benefit someone with type 3 or 4. So disapointed.
Allie from Florida
I bought this at the start of my CG adventure and was not thrilled with the results from any product in here. After doing some research, I learned some of these products are NOT CG approved! Will forever sit in the back of my cabinet.
CURLSMITH happy results :)
SAMMI825 from Mesa
Definitely would recommend trying :) just one try & it definitely defines my curls better than PATTERN OR DEVA CURL in my experience & my hair feels so much softer after one wash & my hair being color treated.
Curls went back to UN damaged texture 😳
Chei from Tx
Y'all my hair is always a little damaged bc I like to flatiron it and sometimes do keratin treatments so it has a looser texture. This co wash and MOISTURE MEMORY gave me a new texture after a week. My curls were tight and coily and I was like "uhm how do I do this hair" i looked at younger pics of myself and realized that was my natural texture before I damaged it. It washed the keratin out of my hair and whipped my curls back into shape I was amazed. I think they put magic in this. The moisture memory is insane, it really does its job! It's a lot to relearn how to do your hair so be careful lol
Brings your curls back to life!!!

Smells like you could eat it…..
Anyways I went through a blonde moment and destroyed my curls did a healthy chop and my hair still wasn't curling more like mini afro. Next thing you know I try this and bam my hair has lil spirals!!!!! If your trying to get your curls back get this.
Abhmary from Undisclosed
I love everything about this product . Finally I found something that works for my curls. Finally!!!!
Lisa from Undisclosed
Have other products as well. But so far after two weeks. Love this combo. I wash once a week and do the soufflé daily. Like that it only takes a little product to achieve curly results.
At least try it once.
Rita from Undisclosed
I love, love love the conditioner and the reactivator. I will continue to but both of these because they completely work. The styling souffle seemed a bit heavy and greasy to me. You only need to use very little of the product. A little bit goes a very long way. All I can say is, everyone is different so at least try the products once.
Trying to love it, but just can't.
Curly Girl Kris from Hartselle, AL
The Moisture Co-wash seems to do a good job cleansing. It has good slip. Not so sure about the moisturizing component. I followed with the Moisture Memory Reactivator and it left my hair frizzy and dry! I tried using a little, I tried using a lot. I tried it on damp hair and very wet hair. After using it, I can't even run my fingers thru my hair. It is as if it's fused with hair spray! The Curl Defining Souffle did nothing for my hair. I know when my hair is happy and these products did not work for me.
CarolAnn from Missoula MT
This product is perfect for my dry, frizzy, thick curly hair! I've used many products and this by far exceeds the others no doubt. My hair is full and not weighed down. Controls the frizz. It's soft. I'm a fan and won't go back.
Cindy from South Carolina
I used it Sunday and was happy with the results but was sure it would look a mess after sleeping on it. Woke up this morning and it didn't look too bad. I figured the curls would drop out after a day of work. I was wrong,my normal baby fine,lighty wavy hair is still curly!
Curly girl cocktail must haves!

Perfect starter regimen that actually works
