This is the finisher I use the most after my 3b curls have been diffused. I bend my head, spread some in my hands and scrunch the curls loose. Everything shines.

I prefer using this when I straighten my hair, because it helps weigh down my thick and heavy hair and get rid of frizz. It also smells great and adds shine to my hair!

I love the smell of this, unfortunately it's just too heavy for my hair and weighs it down.

It's me again - just want to add to Amarilla's paragraph - you are supposed to emulsify this in your hands before applying. Never put it directly in your hair without doing this, it will not distribute evenly and will look very heavy in spots!

This product smells great and works really well - IF you know how to use it. The tricky thing with Aveda is they do not make one single product that satisfies your hair's needs. You must combine products to get what you want done, this is straight from my hairstylists mouth. The universal cream is really meant to help keep moisture in the hair if you blowdry lots (which I do) and it works really well for that purpose. If you plan to form curls with this, you will be disappointed unless you combine it with Get Curly. I personally like this product, my hair looks shiny, moisturized, and very healthy when I use it. Keep in mind if you try it that you arent supposed to use more than a dime-sized amount, so use sparingly!!

This stuff is great to put on dry hair when straightening. It really smoothes it out and I think it smells great.

they've changed the name to universal styling creme. i actually like this product and i'll be buying it again. i have some really thick 3c curls. this product is good for definition but the key is this, it cannot be used alone. it's too thick. my routine is after i wash/rinse my hair, i squeeze the water out of my hair, rub the creme in my hands and then rub it over my hair. i add about 3 daps of it 3 times, then once i feel my hair is coated enough, i use pure aloe gel to finish up. these two are a great combination. it may scare you when you first put the cream on because it leaves a white film because it's hard to rub in. the aloe gel takes care of that. i diffuse my hair and then roll out the door. my friends thought i just got back from a salon the first time i used it. this is good stuff for those of us with thick ringlets.

This stuff is a pretty greasy and cone-heavy creme. It has medium hold, and will weigh down hair and add shine (because of the cones and oil.) I've used it as a straightening balm, curl cream, and finishing cream. It works moderately well in any of these incarnations, but it didn't enhance curl or cut frizz. The best styling creme I've found is Paul Mitchell's The Cream. And the best frizz fighting finisher is John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette Satin Shine. The best thing about this cream is the smell! It is a wonderful, sweet spicy fragrance.

I've tried to use this product when straightening my hair and I found it was very heavy. As a curl enhancer, I didnt have any luck either.

This is especially good for people who blow dry their hair. It's thick and rich. Didn't really give enough curl formation.

I really liked this stuff. I do use a blow dryer (cuz otherwise my hair would be wet 'til dinnertime!), and I got good curl formation and really nice shine. Several people commented on my hair the day I used this.
