This product is lightweight. It doesn't leave my hair sticky and stiff. I definitely helps with the frizz. I don't use a lot because I don't need a lot. Smells OK.
I gave this a shot today and although I love the curl definition I just can't take the scent. It's way to much of a musky masculine scent which completely overpowers my perfume. It's going back tomorrow.
Is this the first time this is being reviewed? This has been my HG for about 5 years. I'm always being complemented on my hair or asked what kind of perfume I'm wearing (because of the product's smell). I put it on top of my leave-in (Salerm) and add Confixor. Right before I leave the house, I add Aveda Humectant pomade and let it air-dry. Fabulous formation, not crunchy. Totally worth its price tag!
I had so many concerns about trying this gel - the protein, glycerin, and cone were enough to make me say hmmm...However, the woman at Aveda told me I could return it if I hated it, so I figured I had nothing to lose. And WOW, this stuff is awesome! Giving it 4 curls because the smell isn't my thing (although I wouldn't say it's bad per se). But, it mixes well with my leave-in/moisturizers, and give me shiny defined SOFT curls. And while they are defined, they aren't jheri curl defined, which is the look I get with some gels, and that's not cute to me. I hope it keeps working like this (I've only used it twice), because I LOVE being able to get products on the ground! <3
Gave so defined curls. However, I have very thick coarse hair and had to use a lot of product to get the desired effect. The scent was too overpowering when using this much product
It's o.k, not great. Left my curls soft but also slightly messy looking. I'll keep it around to use it when I want that certain "beach" look.
For my 3b/3c curls.. I paired the confixxor with the "Be Curly" cream. I didn't get much hold from this and what I really dislike is that this stuff smells like men's cologne. its too pricey and I wouldn't buy this again. it does make your hair soft and bouncy wear your hair but when paired with Be Curly though, and thats a plus, but the smell needs to change. eww. It doesn't give any hold either.. or maybe I just didn't use enough since I have alot of hair.
I love this product! Many people are complaining about the smell, but people keep coming up to me telling me they love my perfume, and I don't wear perfume. I combine this product with the Be Curly Curl Enhancer and my curls are able to withstand Chicago's wind.
this product worked really well in my hair but i dont know if it was the new haircut that did, it or the diffuser. The Aveda stylist worked it in my hair with 2 applications and then she used a diffuser wich make some frizzies. but i agree that it smells strong but i didnt really mind it.
amazing for a little extra kick of moisture and hold memory; I've used on straight hair and curly with incredible results; light, clear moisture and style memory so my hair springs back into place; very natural look; adds some hold without productiness
I am a fan of the Aveda smell, but this one was a bit much! Good hold, left curls a little stringy. I couldn't get past the strong scent to use it more than twice.
I have alcohol listed high on the top on mine, and so I'm concerned of this drying my hair with daily use.
Men seem to like the "natural botanical" smell - interesting. Works best for me when used after an application of BeCurly and hair is more than 50% dry to tame the frizzies. Also nice light hold for wet hair straight from the beach.
The smell is definatley intense, but it really defines curls without making them crunchy. Also leaves my hair shiney.
Great hold, but it made me smell like a man and the it stayed with me all day long. I couldn't wait to rinse it out.
Didnt give me soft shiny curls as i'd hoped for.was ok when used with other products.not enough curl formulation for me.
