So many great reviews led me to try this.This product is VERY oily so you only need a dime sized amount for a couple of strands of hair. It will curl your hair instantly, but my experience had my hair become hard after it dried. I thought it wasn't working well and didn't bother with it after a couple of days. What I realized was that I needed to finger roll my hair twice-- once with the curl activator and then again once it's completely dry. Every curl I did that with became very soft (although not as shiny as I would like- they looked more 4th day then 1st day). It possibly works well with their curling cream (which I never opened

This is great! Also very inexpensive! It really activates my curls and keeps my hair moisturized throughout the day. I love these products! No shipping and handling; it's so nice just picking it up at Walmart.

Oh my goodness do I LOVE this product! So i JUST started my transitioning journey a week ago and came to this website to ask for advice. With lack of advice i went to the store with a preconceived notion of what I was going to get after hours of searching online. Couldn't find the cream I wanted but found the shampoo and conditioner. I'm strolling down the hair care isle and see the ethnic hair care section. Saw this "curl activator" and it automatically caught my eye. Searched it on my phone for reviews and bought it. This is the FIRST product i've used since my transition and i am more than happy with it! I am so glad I didnt have to go through trial and error with many products. This product is natural, silicone free, paraben free, and uses no mineral oils. It smells so delcious it makes me want to eat my hair. Smoothing and scrunching was all it took to make my curls pop and kept a hold all day! Sometimes it'll make it a LITTLE crunchy but that's cause i put an excessive amount in that section. As the day goes on the crunch leaves too but the curls are still beautifully defined, and your hair looks healthy, shiny, and moves freely. A++++

Love, love, love!!!!!!!!!! After applying the product to freshly washed and conditioned hair my curls began to form and pop. They felt really moisturized and maintained decent hold. This is the first curl cream that I have used without having to use a gel over it to get curls. I will definitely keep rotating this in my regimen.

I've tried this product over a year ago when i bc'd ,the moisture was great & really defined my 3c/4a curls, however I had to reapply the product almost everyday or every other day so the moisture could stay,but I wasn't sealing back then (I know better now),so I probably would have got even better results if I would have sealed. But after a while of use I felt like my hair had got "use" to this product. But overall its worth a try,because I'm trying it again now that I am transitioning again (long story).

When used with the define&shine custard, this product works wonders for my wash-and-go.

This is amazing! As soon as I rub this through my wet hair I actually feel the curls springing up! Reduced my frizz by a lot so therefore I have more curls. You could probably use this alone but I pair it with the Cantu Pomade or the Shea Moisture souflee depending on how I'm doing my hair. Also you don't need to use a lot!

I combined this with the Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner and it left my hair feeling waxy. I used it by itself or with a mousse and it worked much better. My curls formed into shiny, well-defined ringlets that still moved and bounced. The smell of this is GREAT....like pineapple. A little bit goes a LONG way and it has fantastic slip!

I'm 4a and I absolutely love it! I get great hold, without a dry crunchy feel! It has replaced all of my gels. My hair consistently feels moisturized! It's definitely one of my favorite products!

I am still undecided on going natural, but in the meantime, I am doing a long term stretch. I decided to give some of the products from the Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair line a try. i have been using the Curl Activator Cream to moisturize my hair. OMG! This has left my hair soft and all-day moisturized...down to the roots moisturized. I will be repurchasing this Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Curl Activator Cream.

Definitely a staple product for me. Moisturizes and defines my curls wonderfully. That's all a girl really wants right? And a little will go a looong way. :)

I was leery, but using this on my hair after washing I felt some slip and moisture. I used this on my twist out and My twists were moisturized and held their curly/coiliness. It has a nice smell, but it can be a bit overpowering. You don't have to use a lot at a time, but as you go along in your twist out you may have to add some more to keep the proper slip and moisture.

I have 4a/b/c hair and I really like this product. I'm not overly thrilled about it (still searching for that IT product) but it has really done the trick for me so far. I have a twa & i started out using Shea moisture curling smoothie which helped in defining my curls but left my hair very dry. When this product hit the shelves I decided to give it a try. It not only defines my curls very well but it also moisturized and softens my hair for 2-3 days. A little goes a long way with this product. And I also love using it in conjunction with Motions naturally you define my curls for even more moisture. It's a great product with a great price tag!
