Most Helpful Positive Review Great on bi-racial curly hair
I use the Marc Anthony curl cream on a daily basis and I love it. I start by adding a quarter sized amount to the front, next to the back, followed by the middle and complete by adding some to the ends of my hair. I turn the blow dryer on low fan with high heat and either use a diffuser or scrunch my hair with my hands. It is important not to keep the blow dryer in one place for a long time because it will cause is your hair to get frizzy. If I decide not to blow dry my hair and let it air-dry, I scrunch my hair with my hands as I noticed it getting dryer. This allows me to get more volume.
Although Marc Anthony curl cream seems to be the easiest on my hair, I highly suggest adding a light moisturizer or oil to your hair before using the cream because over time it will dry out your hair like other products.
Overall, best product out there for naturally curly hair.
Most Helpful Critical Review Did not work
I have slightly fine, curly/wavy hair. I wanted a product that would shape my curls and eliminate my frizz. This product did neither. The first day I tried it I used it after getting out of the shower while my hair was still wet. I put the product in my hair and let it air dry. My hair was less curly than it usually is. The second day I put the product in my wet hair and twisted my hair into spirals. Again, my hair was less curly than it usually is. Also the smell was way too strong and the product was very heavy in my hair. I immediately returned it.

I use this product on very wet hair, applying from tips to roots, then " rake" it through my hair. It is excellent!

I love finger coiling with this!

Finger curl with this scrunch out the crunch when it's dry. I always get compliments on my hair.
J from Fairview Heights IL
First time using this product. Works well, but I'm not sure I like my hair feeling tacky. Probably won't buy again. I prefer the Marc Anthony curl lotion.
Kat from California
Can become crunchy if you use too much. A little goes a long way. I would use for frizz on the top of my head, but not necessarily through my hair. I'd rather use an oil for my curls.
Yass! Curls and Curves!!
Bella from Tustin CA
I have long wavy frizzy somewhat thick hair! And it could be a real hot mess if I just let it hair dry. But once I started utilizing this one of a kind marvelous amazing product my hair has changed for the best. My hair does not get frizzy and is not more curly than wavy!
ile from Colorado
After washing and conditioning, I apply a quarter amount to my curls and finger through. Then diffuse till only half dry and let the rest dry naturally while I have coffee. The curls set nicely, then finger through to break up the curls and lo and behold...the curls are soft and stay all day! I have a bit longer shoulder length hair, colored and am 70 years old.
Marissam from Wisconsin
I'm really impressed with this curl cream! I have wavy/curly hair that is coarse but not thick. This works great at enhancing the curl without weighing my hair down. My hair is soft and natural feeling while using. So far I've used this with a gel over it bc it's been so humid lately, and with a gel my hair has stayed frizz free even after being outside a lot. I'm curious to try it on its own. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is I don't love the scent, it's definitely has that cheap product smell (I realize it is a cheap product lol). But overall this is a good quality product at a great price!
Favorite curl product
Rogue Relaxation from Oregon
This is my go to curl product. I've tried so many others that cost far more but keep coming back to this one because it works without leaving my hair crunchy or greasy looking. When my hair gets really long I add a bit of mousse for extra curl.
Jfrankie4 from Georgia
Amazed this worked on my daughters thick long blonde curly hair! Her curls are frizz free and springy at a fraction of the cost of her normal product. Thank you Marc Anthony for saving this moms pocketbook!!
Tried to like it
Jen from El Paso
Bought it because i ran out of my old product and wanted to try something new and I'm Very disappointed. It does nothing to my hair. Yeah it has a great price and reviews but it doesn't give me nice results. Curly type 3A
Would not buy again!
Marj from Teaneck,NJ
I'm bummed. I bought this because of the great reviews. My hair is limp and fizzy.
Cass from Pennsylvania
My go to for whatever I do with my hair.
Works pretty well!
Ali from Miam, FL
I used this right after the shower with damp hair. I skipped my frizz cream and apply a good size dollop to my hair, using the praying hands method and then I scrunched my hair to form the curls. After I used the Herbal Essences gel for hold and here are the results! I have wavy 2a/2b hair, and it's been really difficult finding products that don't weigh my hair down b/c then my waves will get flatter than Florida. I have used it once so far but I will update if possible, but so far I got a lot of definition in my hair! The creme does smell like a cleaning product but it goes away (or maybe it was masked by my gel).
Overall, I'd recommend this product to my wavy hair girls looking for a lightweight formula.
I like the way it smells.
Stef from Farmington, New Mexico
I use it after I shower and have dried my hair somewhat. It skews good and leaves hair soft and bouncy.
Kris from Indianapolis, IN
I have been trying out new products and I like this one a lot, especially for the price. It smells so good, like lemons I think. I do have to use a stronger hold curl soufflé with it or there is some frizz, but that is standard for me. I used to use the $28 Deva Curl styling creme and I feel like this stuff has the same results.
Best curl cream I've ever purchased
Gabriella from Portland, Oregon
I use this product after I get out oft he shower. This cream is magic on curly hair. It takes away the frizz, and defines the curls to make your hair look perfect. On the down side, you have to rinse the product out of your hair the next day because it will feel sticky.
Shay from S.C.
My curls are 2c/3a that's on the thinner side. I love this my curls were defined with a good amount of hold. And not weighted down at all Best curl cream I have tried
Yess I would buy it again
ElizabethTheReader from Los Angeles, CA
If you are a person like me who reads reviews before buying I was kind iffy on buying it because the product is for my daughter who is biracial (black/Mexican) and not every product works on her curly hair. But I must say this isn't bad I give it a 9/10 didn't leave her hair hair or leave flakes it defined almost all her curls. I would buy again.
The 2C hair-type DREAM!!
Courtney w/the 2C curl from Provo, UT
YOU GUYS. I've been using this for 2 months now. I'm in love. I will never use another curl cream again.
My hair has some really curly areas, some wavy, and some almost pin-straight; finding the right product has been really hard, BUT I love this one BECAUSE it defines my curls so well!!
I used to use a curl cream by OGX or Kenra's curl mousse. My hair got tangled super easily and got frizzy on day 2 or 3 (and impossible to brush through when I needed to). With Marc Anthony's curl cream, each ringlet is moisturized and defined.
At first, I felt like it had less hold/ hair= less curly, but I quickly learned that because it's lighter weight than most products I could apply it more liberally. When I started using more of the product, I felt like my curls were better than ever. I have never loved my hair more < 3
How I use it:
Shower. Scrunch hair w/tshirt. Air dry for 1-2min. Apply product while scrunching hair until every lock has been touched by the product. Diffuse while scrunching. Slay the day b/c I feel (and am) fabulous.
