How to Use
Rated 4.35 out of 5 stars
I took a chance on this and was really surprised how much I liked it. My hair is normal, not too oily or dry, and on my best hair days it has big bouncy waves. On my worst, it manages to be both flat and frizzy. It's finer than a lot of curly hair is, though, so most anti-frizz products and products meant for curly hair really weigh my hair down. Products for straight hair don't help with definition of my waves and curls. This is a holy grail for me. I wash and condition my hair three times a week, and since the product says to use it up to three times a week, I've been using it almost every time I wash my hair. I let it air dry, and I use Bumble & Bumble's curl defining styling cream in it when it's still damp, and I've had pretty much ONLY good hair days since I found that combination. I'm interested in trying the regular daily conditioner in this line, but it gets such bad reviews! I wish they made this mask in a larger container, because I think it makes a great regular conditioner.
I have naturally thin, curly hair that has been damaged from heat styling it. So I purchased this in the hopes that it would help restore some of my natural curl, as they don't have any bounce or definition anymore. First impression, it smells amazing, I will give it that. And it makes my hair feel very soft, BUT it actually made my hair straighter than it was before, I have almost no curls after air drying it. I would recommend if you are looking for softness and a nice smell, but definitely not for curls.

I have some damage left from bleaching and dying my type 4 hair. I used this and it made my hair very moisturized. My hair definitely feels softer and the curls were more defined than they have been in a while.

Smells great and seems like it's going to be very nourishing when you put it on but that's about it. By the time I rinse my hair it feels like wet straw and once air dried it's a dry frizzy mess. I think I'll stick with my regular routine.

My frizz immediately tames itself with the mask, it detangles, it hydrates, most people say it doesn't actually define there curls but it does for me and a lot especially if i take little and use as it as a leave in. I'm high-medium porosity 3a/3b, thick and dense

I love this so much. I should probably get the large tub of it. Was my curly hair super curly afterward? No. Was it more of a smooth curl without frizz? Yes. It also took care of the dryness, etc.

This masque smells AMAZING! I was so excited to get it through my 4a curls and reap the benefits that it claims. It felt like absolute butter when I was putting it on but when I washed it out, different story. It seemed like my hair didn't get very moisturized and the "slip" just wasn't there. The curl definition wasn't great either. It acted just like a conditioner, not like a masque product where I expect great curl definition and slip. I feel like my curls just sucked the life out of this masque and laughed at the attempt to moisturize. I used two packets too :( I would probably use this again but not with the expectation of getting much out of it by itself. Maybe I'll pair it with another masque and cook something up.....

I've used curling creams before, and 99% of the time, I see no results. The only curling cream I've continuously seen results from is Cantu's Coconut Curling Cream (shocking, an brand made for diverse hair actually helped my diverse hair *sarcasm*). So I'm Hispanic, and as a result, I have very curly hair. Like I said previously, most products do no work for me; they don't make my hair curl and it makes it frizzy. Cantu, however, does actually make my hair CURL (like a lot). So with all this being said, I was skeptical to use this curling cream. I had used other NYM hair masks before and I have LOVED THEM! But I was nervous to see how well their curling mask would do for my hair due most previous masks not working at all. And after using NYM curling mask the verdict is..... it's good! Nothing magical is going to happen, but it will make your hair feel nice and look well done. This mask did not make my hair curl more than it usually does, but it did define my curls and reduce frizzyness (which I usually struggle with). Over all I was satisfied with this product, and I would definitely use it again to wash my hair before going to an event I want to look good at!

This has to be one of the best smelling products I have ever used. This conditioner is HEAVY, I used way too much the first time around. You could easily get 4 or 5 uses out of this package so I'm kinda bummed it doesn't come in something resealable. Definitely adds moisture to your hair but if you use too much it will definitely weigh it down.

I used this once I felt it was really heavy on my hair. Normally I can go a few days without washing but with using this I felt like I had major buildup on my hair from this. I am glad I didn't buy the bigger tub of it.
AlexD from NJ
Used this for the first time this morning. LOVE IT. Hardly any frizz, my curls are moisturized, defined, and bouncy. This masque has great slip, made detangling with my wet brush in the shower a breeze. I used this in place of my regular conditioner after using my Carols Daughter Coco Creme shampoo and the results are beautiful. Highlight recommend to curly girl with fine curls.

I absolutely love what this does to my hair. It has AMAZING slip and moisturizes it without weighing it down and I do notice more definition when I use it. HOWEVER, please put this in a tub! Foil packets are great when you just wanna try the product, but since I know I love it, I'd love to have a tub of it. It would be may more easy to use/store (especially when you don't need the whole packet.

No difference in my hair. At the end of the day my hair felt stiff and extra oily. It smelled great. I've tried a better masque from conair.

Bought this at beauty con this year and after a long summer of dealing with sun damage and dry curls, this treatment completely nourished my 2c curls! Hair is full on bouncy curls that are soft, and hydrated! Definitely will be repurchasing this again!
Mj from N.C.
I'm slays nervous about playing too much with products but I grabbed this after having my hair colored. my 2b/c curls responded incredibly well. Can't beat price point. definitely will be stocking up on these babies!
Jill from MO
I have thick, low porosity, 2b hair. This was awesome. I've never been thrilled with any deep conditioner in the past. Now I love this. I kind of prefer this to my expensive regular conditioner. I hope they eventually make this in a bigger package!
Gabrielle from Michigan
Tried this treatment for the first time and my curls couldnt be happier! I tried the combing cream and was skeptical to try this because the combing cream was too heavy for my 2c-3a hair. This treatment has my ringlets popping!
Annoushka from Queens, NY
This made my hair feel so luxurious and did wonders for my curls! I just wish they came in larger packaging.
