This product made my curls skinny and less defined. It did take away frizz but i'd rather have big curls than skinny weird waves. I did like that it was relatively inexpensive and i did not need a lot to take the friz away. But my hair was just too weird whenever I used this.
So far I really like this stuff for my fine 3a hair. It gives me bouncy curls with body, and doesn't weigh down my hair like most other products. But I must ask: why, oh why do they have to use such strong fragrance in the JCS products? In my opinion, the scent is overpowering, not as much so as the Nourish and Shine, but still it is too strong for me. I wish every company was like Jessicurl and made an unscented option. But back to the good part- it works well. Yes, it is watery, but I can deal with that. I like that it doesn't have any plastic in it, so your hair doesn't feel coated, just light and curly. So, if you don't mind strong scents and have fine hair, go for it.
I love the smell of this product and am finding I prefer more liquidy gels. This is VERY liquidy, so it's easy to distribute (but a little hard to keep in your palm- I suggest using lots of little squirts). It only works for me when layered with another product; like a cream or FSG/okra gel. The crunch is a little hard to SOTC but it seems to loosen throughout the day on its own, although I don't care for the wet look. I won't repurchase, and don't reach for this very often. For liquidy gels I prefer Curl Keeper in the moderate dews, and GVP liquid sculpting gel in the high dews. The one thing I do find this is very good for, is on dry hair- put some in your hand and run it down an unruly curl, wrap around your finger, and it shapes the curl back together.
This product actually gave me frizz after I scrunched the crunch and the smell is overpowering! Not a fan of anything JCS!
When I first poured this product in my hand, I was worried, due to the watery texture (as mentioned by previous reviews). I thought "there's no way this will do anything for my dry 3 b hair". I was VERY wrong. Once I got it worked through my hair (and again, the reviews are right, use a LOT, and it works better on damp or wet hair), I combed it through with a claw comb. I then put more on my hands and picked out individual curls to curl around. My hair has never been softer or shinier, and my curls are not frizzy at all. The crunchiness doesn't bother me, and I just scrunch it out if it seems to crusty. I will definitely be ordering more!
I love this product!!! Did not dry crunchy at all, defined my curls beautifully, smells wonderful and not overpowering, moisturized and softened my curls, gave shine, medium hold, and most of all controlled my frizz!! I thought the ouidad climate control gel was great but I think my hair loves this one waaaayyy more!!! The only annoying part is that its runny (more runny than ouidad climate control) but I don't really mind...just have to really play with it so it doesn't end up all over the floor :)
this product is great on wet hair if you have loose curls or for me i like to use it when i do a twist out and what is even better you can use it on dry hair and it never flakes and your hair is super silky
I thought this would be ok for sealing after a LI and before a gel. Well i was wrong this is so runny so it's hard to distribute its slips between my fingers before i can even get it in my hair. I tried various ways putting this my hair and notice my gel doesn't get crunchy when it dries. Adding this product to my regimen made my curls very droopy and undefined almost like wavy. Your nose never gets used to the smell either usually whatever product you add last you will smell not with this it overpowers everything. Used alone was a huge disaster! CK didn't work for me and neither did this i will be sticking to light natural oils. -3B/3C, Med. Porosity, Med-Coarse Texture, Thick Density.
I have 4a/4b hair. This stuff is liquid gel. It made my hair crunchy, and it's sticky. I gave my bottle away.
My hair drinks this product like nobody's business! I don't like how sticky it is and I also don't like that it is watery...it may make a good detangler however it is not a good conditioner or sculpting product for my type of hair.
I love this stuff! It gives my hair great definition and hold without feeling too crunchy or stiff. I can also get second day hair!
I wish I could give this product 3.5 curls but I can't. Anyway, I did not like this product at first because I didn't use any type of leave in under it and my hair came out frizzy and not defined. Well I tried it again recently, used a little bit more and took my time to section it through my hair and I also used the Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner under it and I finally got results I am happy with. It just took time for me to figure out how to use this product to get what I want.
This product gave some pretty good curl definition, however it left my hair a little on the dry side dry. I wouldn't recommend this product to other 4's. Try finding a product that provides hold without drying out the hair.
I liked the smell of this. It also gave nice shine, but so does the nourish and shine. This product provided no hold for my 3b/c curls.
My 3b/3c hair can be kinda hard to tame and slick back into a curly ponytail, I love this product when I'm slicking my hair back, I don't like gels so I decided to try this, it holds it in place like a gel without flaking at all and gives me amazing shine
I love this stuff! It smells incredible and it coats the hair shaft well- I layer it under a gel
I love this product. Not many smell as good as this does. It works really well for my long hair. the only reason I gave it 4 curls is because I can't buy it in my local shops.
I really like this product. I use it with a little Ouidad Climate Control and WOW! I have great curls and little frizz. I also like to use it after my hair is dry as sort of a hair spray. Just using a small amount after it is dry keeps it styled. I like that this is not as expensive as some products and makes my Ouidad stretch since it is kind of expensive but well worth it.
This really works to define, enhance and hold my curls but I have to be generous with product. I love how I can scrunch my hair when dry to adjust curls without creating frizz unlike most other products; a great substitute for CK without the plastics.
I really wanted to like this product, but even though it gave me great shine and definition, it left my hair feeling very dry and coated, and that feeling lasted through two washes.
I use this as a CK replacement; it's cheaper and available on the ground! I'm not crazy about the smell (although it's better than CK's), but it gives me beautiful hair when layered under a gel. Will most likely repurchase.
This is good stuff, but very runny so it's hard to distribute, esp through really long hair. Therefore, hair looks great where the product gets, but a few frizzy strands tend to poof out where the product didn't make it. Use a teensy puddle at a time n very wet hair. Good results, overall.
I had to try this product after reading all the good reviews. It works great for my 3b thick curls. I used it today with a nice gel beneath it and the result was basically frizz free, pouf free curls. It has a light scent and a light crunch. The crunch doesn't bother me because I know that my curls are going to stay in place.
This is the best hair styling product I have used. I love the smell and the fact that it is not sticky. My hair is soft, shiny and full of curls, with a lot of body. My hair did not frizz AT ALL through a whole day of rain and very high humidity.
I really like this product!! I have a thick mass of curly 3B hair which is very difficult to control. For years I have been trying to find a product that adds weight to my hair and separates my curls and this product seems to do the trick for me.
i love this product because it has enough hold to keep my curls defined but it doesn't weigh them down. it's so light that it dries faster than other products and the smell is very fresh but not overpowering. it only works well when i coat every single strand of hair though. and because i use so much my hair dries a little crunchy but i just have to touch it a little and then it's great. i cannot use any heat with this product though. it works best when i air dry.
The smell is fantasic!! It is a great friz controlling leave-in that should be mixed with a gel for hold.
I really like this product. It's great for days when you need a light hold. It has a fresh smell and leaves the hair soft and shiny.
Adds good conditioning properties with just bit of hold. I wouldn't depend on it as my sole styler, but it's great mixed with a gel.
This gel is fantastic! It is a lightweight, very liquid formula with a wonderful scent. A little goes a long way, and it holds really well--it keeps my curls from frizzing out. The only negative is that when it dries, it leaves a cloudy film on the hair. But, not to worry: smooth a little Nourish & Shine over it, and your hair will look gorgeous AND have hold!
