Most Helpful Positive Review Purchase This Now!
Okay let me start by saying I don't review products often but this one deserves it. Just like the other travel products I purchased with this brand I wanted to sample it before buying the regular size. So wash day comes and I use the travel shampoo, conditioner and leave in which I love. I also purchased the gel which definitely HOLDS my hair in place. I have THICK 4C curly hair and originally I used this product for a pulled back ponytail style. I felt like it made my hair look dry it my hair soaks up products and oils but it felt moisturized. Baby let me tell you the following day I wet my hair to do a twist out and I didn't have to add ANY product at all. My hair was still super moisturized, my hair was literally gliding through my fingers. I used this product in addition to TPH curling milk and pattern gel. My twist out came out beautiful it's so soft and bouncy. I definitely recommend this cream, gel and the traveling set. Thanks Tracee!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sensitivity issues
Mistakingly, I rated on the ROUTE site which is masquerading as PATTERN. If it is part of your company then let someone know that as well. I hate receiving unnecessary emails and text messages! This is basically the review that I put on that page. The scent is overwhelming. My nose went raw while washing my hair. I'm glad I used the sink instead of in the shower because it's been a few hours and I'm still smelling the product on my hands and I've washed my hands several times since because they continue to itch. I would love to see some thing for people who are sensitive to heavy perfumes. I realize that some things found in nature may have strong odors but these odors...off the charts. My package arrived last week which seems a long time considering I paid some shipping company extra for it to be shipped correctly. That's probably a sham since now I can't return the product because of their shipping rules. I don't wash my hair every day or every other day because it's not healthy therefore I'm stuck with this product. I'm stuck with it for quite a while. The serums, I can deal with. The product is basically the same as any products I can go in the hair store and grab off the shelf that says it's 100% free of everything yours is 100% free of. I'm just disappointed. I would love your research and development to find something that is not so assaulting on the senses.

Love love love!!!! It works my edges better than gel and there's no build up residue! I love the smell. For the ones who say it smells weird they probably have COVID19. I had COVID and a lot of things smelled funny but this here doesn't.
Would buy and recommend this to people with all types of cur

This is a great product for curls. It not only helps with styling but also helps keeps curls soft
Amazing in tight textures!
Tyler H. from Baton Rogue, LA
My baby sister and I have 4a-4b tight hair texture and I first used the trial size on my baby sister's hair first! Amazing! Love PATTERN products! My mama was so glad I decided to invest into these products and has been raving about how defined, hydrated, and beautiful my sister's hair has looked this entire week. The styling cream is amazing when I need to touch up her hair day to day or style it after a wash! Love the smell and hydration! Highly recommend! Well worth the coin👌🏽
Absolutely amazing !
Maia from Brooklyn, NY
So I'm a newbie to styling my natural hair and I've always wanted to try twists. So I bought this product and sat myself down for the longest hour of my life but I did it. Three days later I took out the twists with oil on my hands and had the curliest ,bounciest, fullest curls I have ever had in my life! Definitely buying when I run out!!
Annie from Holmdel,NJ
I have used it on second day hair or freshly washed worked amazing either way
I love this product
Fran from Miami
Works good on thick hair.
Works wonderful on my daughters hair.
Smells like cheap perfume
Wash day came early from Charlottesville, VA
Luckily I bought the mini size since I hadn't tried this product before. I wish I could write anything about this product other than that all day I walked around getting whiffs of a very pungent perfume smell. I'm not particularly sensitive to smells normally, but I like my hair products to smell light and natural, and this is completely overwhelming.
Not for me
Gg from Illinois
Didn't work on my 3b medium texture hair. Smells good though. But really heavy and dried my hair out.
Yes of course
Merella from Amherst,New York
I use this product for moisture on my natural coils 3b natural hair and did Miny twists it defines and shapes and adds moisture and it gives me much curl definition to my strands.
Love this product
Brylla from Venice, ca
It really helps with my curls plus the smell is amazing and not too over powering
AlwaysALady from DE
This cream does exactly what it says. Everything is trial and error and once I learned how to use it properly for MY hair, it's pretty awesome. I can not add a gel to this, it doesn't need it. It has enough hold that if you use too much, you may have a bit of crunch. Having said that, my styles last until I wash them out, and it looks good. I do wish her products didn't cost so much, but compared to some companies she's not the worst price wise. I love the pattern products.
So many comments
Leslie from MN
I've gotten so many comments on how defined my curls are since using this product. I have finer hair, so a little goes a long way for me. I'm just careful to not overload my hair with it since it will weigh it down.
Love that this product helps bring out my curls!
Jg from Portland, ME
I use this product after washing my hair. I brush it through my hair with my fingers then scrunch it up after.
SuDo from Philadelphia, PA
I used this product for my son's 4b/4c hair type. His twist out was so soft and moisturized. No residue at all!
CurlyCreole337 from Louisiana
At first I used it on my daughter for some twists and I wasn't impressed. But then I used it with the strong hold gel and I fell in love!! I love how it clumps my curls together before I even apply the gel. The smell is really nice and light and the moisture is definitely there. My wash n go's last for a whole week!!
Princess from New York City
Well when I first used this for a wash and go I was not impressed; which makes no sense since thick creams like this get along with my coarse 3c/4a hair. But then I decided to try it for a twist out and it worked wayyyy better but I also used other products with it so yeah. This cream isn't the worst but there are others I love that cost way less than this.
This is a monthly must for my curly hair!
Debra from Cedar hill Texas
Makes my hair so soft and manageable
Gigi from Florida
I have 3b type hair and this product just does not work for me at all. I have tried it by itself, with the gel, pairing it with other products and no dice. I don't know of it's because I have fine hair, but it weighs it down too much. It can give me some nice definition but nothing to write home about. For the price, I was expecting some dazzling results, but my $8 hair products give me way better results. Not worth it.
GIgurl from Virginia
Since this product costs twice as much as style creams I usually use, for it to be worth the price it should work twice as well. It does not. It does have a nice consistency which I felt was similar to Cantu Coconut Curl Cream. The Pattern style cream gave ok curl definition on wash day but the next day, my hair was a puffy mess and felt dry. I tried to freshen by misting with water and adding a bit more of this product (like I do with others); the result was a sticky mess. If that all wasn't enough, the smell of this product was so awful that I just had to return it! Not for me.
Great Styling Cream!
LuvlyJ from Tampa, FL
This styling cream is thick but so hydrating and moisturizing. I use this over the leave in conditioner and my curls look so helathy, shiny and juicy. The formula is perfect.I use it for wet and go and for slicking my hair back in a bun. Highly recommend.
Miri from Brooklyn, NY
this is honestly one of the best styling products i've used in a while !!
i have super thick and dry 3b hair which is pretty difficult to handle sometimes, but this really helps my curls look so much healthier and more defined, and my hair feels so much softer as well. i'd buy this again, no questions asked !
Moisturizes & Defines Type 4 Hair
ChicCherise from Lake Wylie, SC
I have 4A hair & this is the most moisturizing hair product I've ever used. This makes me not want to buy or try anything else, & I'm a total product junkie! It has been my go to & the only thing I've picked up my past 4 or 5 wash days! It also defines my hair so I can reduce the amount of gel I use. I can also do slicked back styles with this alone. The moisture lasts for 7+ days without reapplying! HEAVEN FOR HAIR IN A JAR!
grees from Minnesota
Left my hair feeling sticky and brittle. Was hard to wash out too.
Okay Tracee LET ME FIND OUT!!!!
Rose from Atlanta, GA
I absolutely love this product. It's super thick so make sure your hair is saturated with water when you use it. I truly loved the product, the smell, the definition, the softness of the curls.
