I absolutely LOVE this custard. I have 3c/4a hair that is low porosity, fine, and low density. I was nervous about trying this because I live in South Florida and was thinking the high humectant properties would produce poodle hair. Not at all! I am SO impressed. This gives me the perfect balance of definition, hold, and lightweight feel. It is a bit goopy-feeling/kind of sticky, so I wish it came in a wide nozzle pump for ease, but I absolutely adore this, especially when paired with the Honey & Pomegranate leave-in (which I also love!). I am able to get 3-day hair with this product, which may not be enough for some people, but the hold is definitely not enough for more than that. Since I cows after 3 days anyway, it really doesn't matter to me. You don't have to apply more if you get some frizz - you can just wet your hands and run it over the frizzy bits. If you do need to apply more, you only need a dab and there is absolutely no buildup or flaking. Another huge bonus is that I don't have to use a whole lot to get the benefit, so my hair dries in about 5 hours, which is a BFD for my low porosity hair. Most importantly, I find this product and the leave-in to be super moisturizing and my hair is much shinier and even softer than it has been for a while now.
I purchased this along with other products hoping for a wonderful wash and go end result. I live in an area where wash and go doesn't work in the winter. it's summer and I have tried this product twice. Unfortunately, AFTER the big Anniversary sale where I decided to purchase another container because the other products in this line worked well for me. First attempt, using along with Curling Smoothie, ending in beautiful curls for two days after that flakes and itching. Second attempt, without Smoothie, ended in flakes after second day. I am not heavy handed with products because I don't like flakes in my dark hair. What I hoped to be a ‚Äúgame changer‚Äù did not end up that way. Not happy since by the time I used it, my anniversary sale order had shipped and I can't get a refund. I am now using it alongside the Twisting Souffle just to use it up. The second container will be gifted to someone else.

I discovered the Mielle sculpting custard about a year ago and let me tell you I will never go back!! I have 2B-2C curls and this is my holy grail 😍 directions say it works best on damp/towel dried hair I believe. And that's exactly what I do! After I wash and hand dry my hair with an old tee I'll put oil in, then leave in conditioner, and then a moderate to generous amount in before I denman brush curl my hair into casts and plop! The first time I used it I just scrunched it in and that worked very well too! Don't let how it dries shock you, it dries kind of hard/crunchy, but once your hair is 100% dry you can break up the curls and you will have the bounciest, most delicious smelling curls!! Total game changer. And for the price?! Just get it, you won't regret it!!

I bought this product about two months ago and I'm telling you it really works on my hair but I always twist my hair tho I'm definitely going to to just hand twist it and see how it looks but first but in the leave in conditioner and your mint oil then the curl custard it really works make your hair shine and looking good 👍

It works so well on my thick curly hair. It defines them, and keeps them frizz free. It lasts for about 2 days inbetween washes.

This product does an OK job of detangling and curl defining my 4a hair. I like that the fragrance is nice but not overpowering. But I don't like the sticky, greasy feeling, and it gives a LOT of buildup. Will be returning it and going back to the product I was using before.

I went through several products on my step daughters hair. Some started out good and then her hair would just reject it after a while. I seen Rashada using MIELLE on her IG. She and my daughter have about the same texture hair. I've tried just about all of the MIELLE products and I LOVE THEM!! I've even hipped my entire family on to it literally. I've also used it on my hair and it works great!!! Our hair have also grown and her natural curl pattern is returning.

I wanted to like this product. It worked well at defining my coils, but after the first day it started to flake BAD and with so much build up. I basically have to wash my hair after every use.

This product keeps my hair hydrated, and soft, and the curls last a very long time. This product is just right for my hair texture and the style(s) I wear.

I love using your hair care products on my 18 month old. The smell of pomegranate and honey is amazing. The hydration of these products is awesome.

The Curl Sculpting Custard is my absolute favorite! I get asked almost daily what I use to make my curls pop! It controls my frizz all day and keeps my curls shining!
Robin from US
This a MUST HAVE for curly hairstyles. I always use this in my daughter's hair, and the fragrance is very pleasant.
Alicia from US
Smells so good. Don't over do it because it tends to flake if oversaturated.

Sydney J from Birmingham AL
I thought this product would be good for my hair. After using a lot of product it started flaking badly in my hair and I had to add water.
Adriana from US
Really helps with defying curls and also helps with holding curl like a gel. I feel like a little goes a long way.
Sharina from US
This product left the front of my hair with white residue and my hair looked like I had product in it. I was expecting a more lightweight natural look and feel of my curl pattern. The product held my curls, but it made my hair dry and I wasn't big on that because I had to wash my hair, again, after applying it.
Desirae from US
The custard does not leaving my hair feeling crunchy and heavy. I use it to refresh my curls and once it dries it leaves my hair looking amazing!!
Lisa from US
Love it. Great for keeping curls defined and styled everyday.
Kailee from US
This product is a staple in my hair care regimen!! It hydrated my hair so well. The results I got were so high quality and I am so happy with my curls. I get so many compliments on a daily basis. For context I have low porosity, 3C-4A hair texture.

I like the definition, shine and moisture it provides my hair. My wash and go last 5 days..It has a slight gel cast but I like that, it will go away on day 2..
