This product has a very pleasant fragrance, and I appreciate the thickness for my hair type. I was really hoping that this product could work magic and make my hair produce the beautiful soft, curls that I see on other women, but unfortunately, it fell a little short. After I washed my hair, I used the curl activator. My hair is so very thick, that it seemed to eat this product. It just laid on my hair not being absorbed, but I continued to work it in. It was soft as I let it air dry, but became dry later in the day. I will not count this product out just yet though. I plan to shelve it until the fall/winter then try it again. Who knows, my hair type may change and the season may make a big difference!!!
This product is fantastic. I put some on my damp curls and this transformed them into beautiful, bouncy, well defined coils that lasted a full 24 hours. I will buy this product again.
My hair loves this curl activator! I used it on dry hair, and it formed my 2a waves into actual curls when I scrunched it in! It remained soft and non-greasy looking with no crunch, which is great for a product on dry hair, and the curls lasted a long time. When they started to droop, I simply added a bit more in later in the day and it sprang right back up. It has a fresh watermelon scent, but does not stay with your hair for long. I could hardly detect the scent once the product was completely dry. I always plan to have this product around for a wave/curl pick-me-up.
Sadly, it had a displeasing smell and it didn't do much for my hair. It felt like less was already too much.
I did not like this at all. It smelled so bad, that I had to wash my hair hours after using it (tried this on freshly washed hair). I just do not like this line of products.
I got the curl activator and the 30 second curl spray to try, I wash and condition my natural 4a/b type hair, and boy what great moisture and curl definition I got. I have used the old style back in the day curl activators, and the glycerin in these products works miracles in curly hair. So by reading the ingredients in twisted sista, I knew this would work for me. Would definitely buy this product for the future.
I tried this on my damp 4c hair and it didn't do anything for my hair but made it soft and smell good I wouldn't buy it in store
Not overly impressed with this. Attempted to use this as a styler on its own initially. Although I had curl definition my curls where very clunky and artificial looking. There was no soft defined texture to my hair. I will say that this is a good product to use when having a hair crisis however. I have found that used lightly as a curl refresher the day after you have washed you hair it can work well. I just wet my hair refreshing other stylers already in it and sometimes use this as an ends refresher. However this is definitely not my go to product. It just doesnt feel right on my hair.
I didn't like it. Idk if my hair drank it up or if it evaporated, but I didn't find it thick or lasting at all. I didn't get more than two days out of it
The stuff really works and doesn't weigh down the hair. BUT.....the fragrance in the product is overwhelming! There are many people who are allergic to scents. For me, while this product gives amazing curl to my 2C wavy hair, the overpowering scent makes my head itch very badly. Why not make an unscented version of this product? I'll bet you'd get a lot of takers!
I recently had the opportunity to try the Twisted Sista line when I won the 29 Days of Celebrity Curls hosted by Natually Curly. After I saw that Curl Activator was a creme my excitement about the product diminished. I did give it a fair chance after reading some positive reviews I thought that maybe I had found a product that could give me the same results a gel but better. This product did nothing for my hair. Personally I could not recommend the product but everybody's hair is different it may work for someone else but for me it is a no go.
I really liked this product! I just wish the container was bigger. It smells a bit like watermelon candy and it can be a bit overwhelming to begin with, but it fades over time. I noticed that not only did it minimize frizz, but it seems to me that it actually minimized shrinkage, which is probably my favorite part about it! If you are sensitive to perfumes (as my hubby is), make sure to smell the products in this line first (if you can) or at least use in a well ventilated area. It's not a bad fragrance, just very strong.
This product I have to say is not the best.It left my curls very saggy as if I put a lot of product into my hair.As it says on the back for the directions/description it doesn't do what it says.However,the product smells good
I LOVE this product. It did wonders for my hair. It defined my stubborn frizzy sections of my hair and left them soft and smelling great.
This stuff did give me great definition and reduce frizz big time. I was very shocked about that. I will probably save it for the summer time because my Shea moisture frizz my hair bad in the summer. Only giving this product three stars because of it's ingredients. Not really a fan of silicones and mineral oil.
This product was pretty good. It helped define my curls, and it reduced frizz. The product is very thick and creamy so I didn't need to use too much of it. I didn't like the smell of the product. I think that would be my main issue with it. My hair is 3C/4A... It had a better effect on the looser curls than it did on the kinkier parts of my hair. It was a little greasy so I wou;dn't recommend using it more than 3 or 3 days in a row without washing/co-washing/rinsing your hair as you might end up with build up. Other than that, it gets a thumbs up from me. Check out my video review of the product: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqtCmzF289Y
Oh and I forgot to mention there's absolutely NO frizz which makes my morning routine a 2 step process. I would recommend that you at least give it a try to see how it works on your hair.
I bought this product sometime last year as i was transitioning but didn't like the results so I shelved it. I rediscovered it yesterday and decided to try it again because this time I was growing out my BC and I was beyond pleasantly surprised. Yes I have to admit this isn't a true CG product but aside from that it gives great results. It gives great curl definition and shine and on top of that my hair is super soft with my curls feeling light to the touch. I love it but the key here for me is to use Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie underneath as a leave. I even got 2nd day hair using this so I would totally recommend it.
I don't like it. Maybe it is not good for 4a-4b teeny, weeny afros because it makes mine look frizzy. The price is good though.
