Most Helpful Positive Review My #1 Cannot Live Without
I've tried it all. Moroccan oil, Ouidad, Ojon, Coconut Oil, you name it. Nothing seemed to help me hold on to the definition of my curls. I have very fair skin, but kinky, frizzy, and unruly curls. Curls that I just knew could be beautiful if handled right. A stylist used this Styling Balm on my hair. He separated my hair into sections and told me to keep the sections wet before applying. I have long-ish hair, (past shoulders,) so he told me to use two pumps per section. He ran his finger through each section and told me to make sure every strand gets covered. And then he scrunched. After, to secure it, he put an ultra hold gel on. We let it dry, scrunched open the gel barrier and OMG. There they were - the curls I always knew I could have. That was six months ago and folks, coming from a woman who straight-ironed her hair DAILY for FIVE YEARS, I haven't straightened it ONCE since finding this product. If I could give it 11 stars, I would. Those of you who find it heavy - maybe your hair isn't as dry, kinky, curly, or frizzy as mine, but this doesn't way MY hair down at all. I fear the day this goes off market. Fear the day.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for low-porosity curls
I really, really, really wanted to like this stuff. Thank heavens I got the trial size. I really should have checked the ingredient list before buying even that - the third item on the ingredient list is Coconut Oil, which has to be near the top of the list of things to avoid if you have low-porosity hair. I could tell it was super thick and heavy product, so I used it really sparingly - about a quarter of what I would ordinarily have used, and it still left my hair feeling so greasy that I waited a couple of hours after it dried just to see if it was going to improve, and then washed it for the second time in a day...using my B&B Sunday shampoo with two lathers just to get the stuff off.
I think the people who are in love with this product maybe have high-porosity hair.

This makes my coarse red curls feel so soft. I use it with the curl styling soufflé and I love the results every time.

I have wavy, frizzy hair... this product is just amazing! Love the way my hair feels and looks. Also, my hair doesn't feel dirty. Its just perfect for my hair type
Smells awful, but works well…
Christine from Akron, Ohio
I loved the product in that it defined my curls beautifully—it seemed to reinvigorate them. I've been struggling with my curls becoming more wavy than curly, and this seemed to really do the trick. It's also not sticky, or heavy. However, the smell is awful. I read a few other reviews where they said it was perfumery—I didn't find that it was overly perfumery, but just a horrible smell. I'm going to keep using it because my hair looks great, but I'm going to spray my Aveda Brilliant spray on afterward because that smells divine. Let's hope that works…until Curlsmith changes the formula, or adds a different smelling option!
Love it! I feel like I have new hair
Isabelle from Undisclosed
I put this in my hair right after I shower. I prune my hair w the moisture memory, then scrunch in the style balm, then gel. My hair hasn't had this many curls in years! I let it sit in my hair w all the products for about 30 minutes, then reapply more product in the same order but smaller amounts before I defuse.

Leaves hair smooth
I found my combo for juicy curly waves
biscuitous from Baltimore
I was hesitant to buy this because it is a 1 hold. I'm still new to the curly/wavy girl thing and just thought I needed a super hold. I was wrong. This stuff gives me juicy curly waves that are so incredibly soft. I use one of the gels (flexi something) with it and I love my hair. I barely do anything to it on day 2, 3 and sometimes 4.It works for me.
I really really love this product!
Kenia from Bethlehem PA
I love this product! I use it with the curly memory spray as a leave in & then I use this cream! Great convo!!!
I love curlsmith products!
Irma from Undisclosed
Easy to use and it has just the right amount of hold. Perfect!
Not for fine/thin hair
Hannah L from NY
This made my hair look greasy and weighed down. I have fine curly/wavy hair and used this as a leave in. It does smell good though. Would recommend for someone with thicker hair.

I have 2C-3A curls (prior to having three kids, my hair was 3B) and like most curly girls, I have tried every product out there. Granted, I am late to the Curlsmith game only because for the most part, I was happy with my Pacifica Pineapple Curls products. However, I am a product junky and I like trying new things; one curly influencer popped up in my feed showing her hair with the Curlsmith line, so I figured I would give it a shot.
I am not an influencer so don't judge my photos, but I feel like this product is bringing my curls back to where they used to be before kids — my hair is curlier and thicker. I'm not shedding as much as I was when combining Pacifica Pineapple Curls with Ouidads gel. I am extremely sensitive to smells and have skin that is prone to eczema and breakouts; switching to Curlsmith has not bothered my skin or my nose at all. It's not frizzy by the end of the day or on day two.
That being said, I can feel it in my hair which bothers me (that's one thing that I loved about Pacifica and Ouidad, my hair always felt light and clean even on day three). I also feel like my hair is dryer so I think I need to switch the leave in conditioner I'm using.
All in all, it's definitely a good product and it works for me. I went and bought the full size bottle. Depending on how long that lasts will determine if I am a Curlsmith convert. I'm going to try it on my two daughters hair next time they have a wash day to see how it works for them since that was the great thing about Pacifica, it worked for all three of us even though we have different curl types.
Best curl creme
Beth from Santa Rosa, CA
I really love this curl crème. It keeps curls nice with no frizz and most importantly no hard sticky hair!!
BUY IT. DO IT

Kelli from Undisclosed
I use this ALWAYS after I cleanse my hair. Its great helps tame my frizz. Use it under gel.
It smells great
Kelly from Undisclosed
I use this as a styler i apply it after my leave in conditioner. It smells amazing, but I didn't realize it's only a 1 hold. I need more like a 5 or 8 I do use a gel afterwards that a helps a little but not much
Vivica from Undisclosed
A little goes a long way, moisturizing and has good slip
BUY IT NOW!

AMAZING!!! That's all I have to say!!
great for dreadlocs
Amy from Undisclosed
didn't work great for my hair texture. instead of keeping my curls distinct, it quickly started to loc up my hair, which wasn't what i was going for.
Won't go without it now
Deanna from Undisclosed
I use this under hair gel on wash day, and to touch up my girls between washes. Keeps my curls defined and soft. I've never had so many compliments on my hair. Love this stuff
Meaghan from Undisclosed
Really light weight, but great definition after I diffuser my hair
This is a keeper
janeen from Undisclosed
I have type 3 medium porous hair and use high end products. A curly haired guru on instagram I follow introduced me to this product and line. I'm truly in love. It's lightweight and not crunchy leaving my hair soft and in control. My curls love it
Great, just not for me!
Trinity from Undisclosed
This product is great! Although it doesn't work super well for my hair because I need a much stronger hold I would definitely recommend it to anybody with wavy/looser curls
Love this product!
Ashkenia from Undisclosed
I didn't think I would like this cream so much. I was going to use it as a leave in but ended up using it on its own & I couldn't believe the hold & the moisture I got! I love it! I loved it so much that I went to ulta & ordered 2 of the jumbo size one.
Will not buy this again!
