I've been using Briogeo for years. Usually, I use their leave-in conditioner (amazing). It's heavier and turns my curls into waves which I love for air drying. Otherwise, air drying my curls with any other leave-in conditioner products over the years just leaves them frizzy, limp, or stringy. I don't use gels or mousse because I like as little products in my hair and it's allowed them to become healthier. This was my last leave-in conditioner to try and it was everything I wanted. I use the exact size they recommend. I have very thick, chest length hair that springs up to my collarbone when dry. It barely had a smell and it smoothly absorbs. My hair ate it up and it air dried beautifully. I flipped my hair upside down, moved it around a little (not touching), and flipped back to the hair part I like. It had volume and definition to my mixed curls. I'm thoroughly satisfied and will now switch between this, the Briogeo leave-in, and Davines OI leave-in. Olaplex bonding is great to put a tiny bit in beforehand too.
All great 5/5 air dry products.
After looking and looking for curl products I really wanted something clean after leaving Deva Curl (which I still love). I fell in love with this line's ingredients and currently use Briogeo curly charisma co-wash and I love it so far. However, this curl cream is no bueno! I have fine/medium 2b-3a curl patterns. When I put it in it felt good and smelled nice and clean. I leave my hair to air dry always. It felt great putting in the hair, not too thin or too thick. But I noticed immediately my curls looked too tight, and as it was drying there was a crunchy feeling to it. After it finally dried, the crunch went away, but my hair looked frizzy, weighed down, and had no define for my curls at all. The curls, on the top of my head, were very tight and the rest of my hair was stringy. My curl pattern was gone. In the morning, my hair was a tangled mess. I Will be returning and trying a new product until I find the right one- I guess.

I was very disappointed because I really wanted to love this product. This cream did absolutely nothing for my hair. My hair was dried out and frizzy by the next day. I combined this with the curl gel which i could immediately tell did not mix well.

This is an amazing curl defining cream, i have been searching for a curl cream like this one. It doesn't weigh your hair down, it doesn't make it feel crunchy! Not to mention it smells amazing!!

I have medium to coarse hair. The curl cream is soft and easy to apply and style specially in my freezy and dry ends. Smells great too.

I love this product so much. I have just recently started to take care of my curly hair and I needed to find a leave in to add to my routine. I think this was the perfect fit it's cheap and great.

Been loving this stuff for my hair! It makes my hair nice and smooth to brush out without weighing it down at all! 27 inches of hair gets super knotted and this prevents that as well!

The best leave in curl cream for your hair. Literally makes your hair so shiny and gives it the moisture that curls need. obsessed!
rivadercci from Berkeley, CA
For my wavy (2A) hair, the defining creme doesn't do much by way of definition. I do think it helps my hair retain moisture and shine, but it doesn't create or encourage curl, nor does it provide hold (not the job of a creme anyway). A nice thing to have in my cabinet but not a must-have item.

This is a pretty nice product. I personally have 2C/3A hair and this holds my waves/curls pretty well. However it does not hold for a long time. I don't think I would repurchase this product.

This product is made to define your curls and add strength to your hair and it does so.
danar1 from Westerville, OH
This product is alright. It helps detangle my hair easily. The scent is good. The thickness is perfect. It doesn't weigh my hair down. I don't like that it doesn't really give hold by itself. It even recommends layering it with gel. I don't care for products that require other products to achieve a hold.

If you have curly hair this is a product you need. My curls have been incredible since I started using it. I struggle with dryness and friz with my hair a lot and it has never been better. My hair is also very thin and fine so take that into consideration. I do not know how it does with thick hair. The product also lasts way longer than I thought it would for how small it is.
carolm158 from Lakeland
I LOVE this product. It has really good ingredients that I like. What I love about this product is how they incorporate rice amino acids, avocado oil, and other organic ingredients into this. I recommend this to people looking to shape their curls. I have NO complaints !!

I dont know where my hair would be without this product. After I shower, I immediately apply the gel while my hair is still sopping wet and then plop my hair in a microfiber towel. I end up doing my after shower routine and then take the hair towel off and scrunch my hair and it creates some waves so that when my hair dries, it dries up beautifully!
Ash from Charlotte,NC
My hair feels so soft and light using this. It defibes my curls wirhout the produxt buikdup. Definitely would recommend for anyone who enjoys their hair being light and flexible with defined curls.

I have wavy/curly hair. The best cream.

Finally found a product that turned my dry damaged kinky curly hair into soft curls. I have gotten so many compliments in the last 3 days since I started using it. No more crunchy dry hard curls.
Andrea from Indiana
The best product I've used !!!

My hair has never been as frizzy until after I put this product on. It did have my curls looking great, but I was not very happy with the frizzy
kierav2 from Centerville, UT
Love this product for my curly hair! It makes my curls more defined, less frizzy, and also hydrated. The formula is creamy rather than sticky, and it plays well with other hair products. It does with my hair down a little bit, but not to the point where it starts to look flat.
Steph from West Orange, NJ
It left by hair soft and frizz free, but I was left with white residue and flakes.
jackie from Florida
I love the smell and how soft it makes my curls. HOWEVER, it did not maintain frizz and did not leave my curls defined for too long. Definitely need to add a product after.

I've never used products for my curly hair until recently and this is one of the products I heard great things about. After using it for about a week, my hair has never been softer. I also can use it on my dry hair and it doesn't leave it crunchy or greasy. 10/10 would recommend!
Calee from Florida
I have curly medium density fine hair. Styles best if worked into soaking wet hair and allowed to air dry for about 30 minutes then blow dried on low, medium heat. Definition lasts the longest if I don't break the cast until the day after styling.
Mari from Boston, Massachusetts
It has a natural not so strong smell which is amazing. It actually does give my 2c/3a curl waves a good amount of definition. I don't like my hair too harsh and this provides more natural looking curls. It does tend to get a little frizzy, but nothing gel or mousse can't fix! My hair feels soft and bouncy!
