Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing if you know how to use it!!!
I really hate to see negative reviews on this product , I know products work differently for everyone. This product alone will not destroy your hair. It will benefit it tremendously and you will have healthy curls or wavy hair. Curly hair is prone to dryness because it doesn't hold the water, so we end up needing to use products to help with the up keep of hydration and moisturization. The ingredients are amazing for curly hair. Very hydrating and nourishing, and the hyaluronic acid seals the water in our curly hair cuticles, this is what initially drew me into the product. I love that it is a leave in conditioner as well as an air dry cream. Honestly the price is not bad for what you would typically spend for a 3 step system of a leave in, curl cream, curl gel.
To reference my hair is a mix of 3b/3c hair. I wash once a week with shampoo and conditioner, add a leave in , sometimes use a gel, and lastly will use either olaplex bonding oil, curl smith bonding oil, or Moroccan oil. Through the week I workout Monday-Friday, and I can not stand to have sweaty hair and curly hair products are too expensive just to go through . I need my hair routine to be really simple fast and easy as I have to go to work afterwards. This product has done just that for me!
I will wash my hair after my workouts with a cleansing conditioner and then proceed to part my hair in three sections. First I detangle my hair and then add in the cream ( Amount depends on your hair type and texture) from root to end , I then take my Ez detangler or Felica Leatherwood detangler brush and brush side ways in in a curling motion to my ends. I do it very slowly and gently as I want the defined curls with out the breakage. As the last step , I will add a little bit more cream and do the praying hands method as it really encourages my hair for those bouncy pretty healthy curls. If this is not your preferred method for defined curls that is okay, I would definitely recommend to still section, get a water spray bottle and after each section finger roll or coil the curls.
I say this product is for everyone because it truly is, my daughters has a completely different hair type and hair texture than mine. She is a toddler so of course her hair will change over time. Currently, her hair is straight at the top with big ringlet curls at the bottom. I don't do the same method for her hair as I do mine, because it is not needed or appropriate for her hair. I do want to encourage her hair to be healthy and more on the curly side. Fortunately, this product has been doing a great job with helping me to get those results. I wash and shampoo her hair once a week , I add just a small bit for her hair as it goes a long way, and add in very lightweight oil to the ends of her hair. I will also add the joico heat protectant before blow drying. Through the week I will just add water and a small amount of this leave in. I love it because her curls form so well, and she's not left with soaking wet hair as the air dry time is faster for the both of us now , but it does not dry our hair out. Like I said it's an amazing product of you know how to use it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Product Gave Beautiful Curls But Caused Excessive Shedding
I am providing this review in an effort to assist others who may be experiencing the same effect as I have. I read the reviews before buying and found that a lot of people love this product, but there were a few who experienced increased and excessive hair shed. I am one of those people. I am part of an online hair group and brought this up in my group and found that there were a handful of others who experienced the same with this particular product line. I am not sure which product it is, but all of them contain similar preservatives, emulsifiers, and "detox" agents, so I am leaving this review on all of the products I used. The product created great curls, shine, and definition, smelled great and slip was wonderful….but my hair shedding quadrupled and didn't stop until I stopped use. I took photos of my loss after using this. The photo was two days between wash and style. The subsequent wash was with another product I've used before without incident and shedding decreased by half. If you are experiencing increased hair shedding, this may not be for you.

I would buy this product again

I've been using this product since it launch. I love it, it works well in my wavy curly hair.
Very good hair product
Cherry from Toccoa,ga
I had been trying a lot of hair product for my curly hair and this product by far is the best for my 3b curl type
My favorite Curlsmith product
Incitatus from Metro Detroit
The Weightless Air Dry Cream is my favorite Curlsmith product yet. I have waist-length hair and some of the other products occasionally make my hair crispy or weigh my hair down and this doesn't do that. Hair is always soft, with full and gentle curls. I wash my hair about 3x/week with the 2-in-1 Curl-Quenching Conditioning Wash and even my stylist has noticed a difference in my hair. I also like that this product doesn't contain coconut oil due to allergies.
Cristi from New Bern, NC
I have naturally dry 3b curls, and my hair is very fine and easily weighed down. (I also have low porosity hair if that helps anyone reading.) I typically have a hard time finding a good leave in, since I need something really moisturizing that also won't weigh down my hair.. it's a hard balance to strike. I picked this up expecting to have to return it because I thought it would be too heavy for my hair, but actually, it's perfect! It gave my hair the perfect amount of moisture, but my hair is still light and bouncy. If you have hair like mine and you're on the fence- try it! Thank me later :)
I would definitely buy this product again
Essence from Undisclosed
I love how this leave in conditioners smells and I love how it is light weight, while still moisturizing !!
Isabelle from Undisclosed
The hold on this product is perfect. It's not too crunchy but isn't too light either. I scrunch this in my hair after my moisture memory, and curl cream. & let it sit in a short on my head for about 30 minutes. The reapply the product in the same order but A smaller amount before defusing
Sarasayshi from CA
I have only tried 3 leave in conditioners in the past 3 years and so far I like this one better than the other 2 brands I have tried. It applies smoothly into my hair and I feel that it helped create some good curl clumps.
I would buy again.
Digby from Minnesota
Really liked the product. Faint pleasant scent was nice.
I would not purchase this again.

Did not work for me.
Erin from Undisclosed
Amazing slip, and scent! 3 stars because it's just not a great styler for my hair type.
Erin from Undisclosed
Amazing slip, moisture and scent!
Works good but hate the scent
Shalina from Chicago
I wanted something that can dry w/o diffusing but not make it crunchy and this does the job. It works good for second and third day hair. Any touch ups you need to do like if there are frizzy spots this is perfect for that. Took off one star because for the love of good please change the scent it's way too strong. It's not the most pleasant scent either.

Leaves hair super silky smooth
Soft flexible control
Curly in Maryland from Salisbury, MD
The only product I use after showering, other than their Curl Conditioning Oil in Cream. It keeps my curls in spirals without the crunch of mousse or regular gels. My hair is fine texture but very curly, so most curl products are just too much. This hydro flex is the perfect balance, from the driest winter days to the most humid summer days.
A GAME CHANGER
Bken from New York
OMG. My new holy grail product for my curls. Not sure what my curl type is, but it can get extremely curly with the right product, and this is it!!!!!!!! I've always struggled with finding something that's right for my hair, usually curly hair products are too heavy and make my hair look greasy or so flat on my scalp. This cream has completely changed my life, even though it's an air dry, I still diffuse with only this cream and add a gel, and WOW. High recommend if you have waves/loose curls naturally!!! It's amazing!!!! ANDDD, if you get your hair wet again and re-scrunch and diffuse lightly, you can make your perfect hair days last for 3-4 days, if not more. Barely need to add extra product on day 3. Amazing.
Not great, not bad

It dries out my hair
Best leave in conditioner for curls
Julie from Undisclosed
I love this stuff. I have very fine, thin hair and am impressed by how this moisturizes my curls and doesn't weight my hair down. It's a great next-day refresher when used with some water.
I would definitely buy these product again, but be mindful.
Trina from Undisclosed
Products are awesome. Haven't found one I don't like. I have type 3 hair and it's about tailbone length, medium texture, density and porosity.

I love the way curl smith products and the Bible verses are everything!

I like the hold it has and healthy
Just bought it again - love this stuff!
Janice from Undisclosed
I have fine, thin. curly hair and this works wonders to keep my curls defined and I can revive them fairly easily the next day with a spritz of water. I've tried other gel type products but this one hits the mark for me. A little goes a long way. I love it!
Nope for me
Shanda from Undisclosed
As much as I wanted to love this, I just didn't. It's not for my particular hair. Kind of wish I would've checked for a travel size to sample it first. Made my hair feel very greasy. I do love other Curlsmith products but this one's not for me.
Tiffany from Undisclosed
No and I mean no leave in has ever left my hair feeling light, but soft and my hair dries 2 x faster than normal
Amy from Undisclosed
I had an allergic reaction to Curlsmith products that sent me to the hospital. The smell is overwhelming and caustic. I returned all the products. It took them a month to give me a refund. Curlsmith keeps emailing me asking me for a review, despite me unsubscribing and reporting them as spam. Here it is. Not great, Bob.
