I have 3A/B long curls and this is my favorite styling product to use for big, soft, fluffy curls. The consistency of the cream is light enough to smooth evenly through damp hair, but thick enough to define and hold my curls all day. It dries soft so there is no crunch or need to scrunch. If I use it alone, my curls are very springy and tight. Usually I use with a leave-in under and a mousse at the ends for maximum curl definition. I can keep these curls for 3 days, and the great part is, they get more voluminous the longer it stays in. Does well in humidity, and works OK for frizz… definitely not a gel hold. I rate this "4 curls", missing just one curl because I can't really use it on its own.
I have color-treated curly type 3a hair. It is fine and medium-density. I LOVE this product!!! I don't shampoo my hair. I use only conditioner and I shower at night. I towel-dry my hair and then work a quarter to a half-dollar amount of this product into it. I let it dry overnight. When I first wake up, my curls are about 70% defined and there is some frizz. I then dampen my hair with a spray bottle and apply a generous amount of the Aveda be curly style prep onto my curls. This redefines them and makes them beautifully frizz-free! I live in Seattle, so having products that not only style my hair, but also keep it styled throughout the day despite the humidity is very important to me! This product has been a life-saver. However, I would only recommend its use when paired with the be curly style prep. I also love the smell. It is very earthly and herbal, which I love. It's like aromatherapy!
This product is so-so. It does add some control and shine, but not as much as I would like. My hair is still a little frizzy after using it.
I recently cut off 12 (count 'em) inches off my hair and went from butt-length 3a-b curls to an angled 3b bob. Consequently, my products needed a major overhaul: all my beloved HG products I had painstakingly collected suddenly made my hair flat and stringy! This was actually the first new product I tried. I nearly dropped a brick, if you know what I mean, when the salesgirl told me I had to wait until my hair was nearly dry and then rake it through my curls, but OMG IT WORKS. This is like serious hair magic. My curls looks soft, bouncy, shiny, and minimally frizzy for days. I know this would not have worked back when I was Rapunzel, so it may not be a good product for everyone, but I love it! I wish it came in a little pump like the prep. I love the smell, but if you don't like it, I find it does not linger long. I can't smell it after about 10 minutes.
I love this product. It leaves my hair shiny and helps with the frizziness. I don't really like the smell, but that's ok. It's not too bad.
For some reason this product leaves my hair frizzy - whether used on its own or on top of leave-in product. I can't think why. The only way it works for me is in combination with aloe vera gel which gets rid off the frizz. I'm disappointed as it was expensive.
I love this product. Of all the Aveda curl enhance products it is the only one that always works for my hair. It never drags down my curls and I use it every day - there is not a lot of build up and no matter the weather it helps define my curls. I hope they never stop selling this!
didn't do much for my hair. was disappointed w/ results. smells good though. product line leaves ur hair fresh & clean.
My all time favorite Aveda product. I can use it on wet or dry hair and my frizz disappears. Another plus is that it smells amazing and a little goes a long way.
My go to leave-in Fructis Curls & Shine has been discontinued, just like my previous favorite Fructis Soft Curl Cream. It seems they keep discontinuing their curly hair products and replacing them with new ones that are less & less effective. Needless to say I am no longer even considering using Fructis products. That being said - I've been on a frantic search for a good replacement. I have spirally 3a/3b type virgin hair that is mid-back length - even though I haven't used a blow dryer or any other heat styling appliance for 20 years it still tends to be dry. I use moisturizing shampoos but no rinse out conditioners as they tend to weigh my hair down. Generally I put in a leave-in straight out of the shower and let my hair air-dry. Over the past 6 weeks or so I've amassed a staggering array of "curl enhancing" leave-ins in my search. I've always really liked Aveda products. I've always had good results with their moisturizing shampoos and the scents are just heavenly. I used to use their Humectant Pomade years back but it always left my hair kind of crunchy which is why I stopped using it. In my attempts to find a decent curly leave-in I went back to Aveda again. This product just didn't give me much curl enhancement though. It actually made my hair more poofy and frizzy than curly. Big disappointment. I don't think I'll be purchasing this again.
A little goes a long way. This is a great moisturizing product, but don't over do it, it can weigh your hair down. It smells amazing and it's so rich and creamy.
I love love LOVE Be Curly! It's not my only hair product, but anytime I wear my hair in a wash/go style this is my product. My curls are super defined and lovely. I let it air dry and add a little oil. Definitely a product I'll never stray from.
Before I tried Aveda's Be Curly line, I tried a new curl product every month. Some were okay, some gave me good results now and then, but none of them gave me consistent results really. I have been using this product for two years now, and it has given me consistent results the entire time. After I rinse my conditioner out, I comb my hair out with a wide tooth comb (while it's still dripping wet). I mix a cocktail: two parts Curl Enhancer, one part Flax Seed Aloe (they smell like blueberries when you put them together) and apply the cocktail to my hair while it's still very wet, starting from the ends and then working my way up to the roots. After that I twist my curls together to define them. I either diffuse or let it air dry. Once it's all the way dry I rake through the curls a little bit with my fingers and they look frizz-free and defined.
AVEDA rocks the soft bouncy curls! I love this too (use w/ humectant pomade). Defimatley makes for a soft curl, not tight or sticky. AVEDA botaniclas are by far the best smelling and moisturizing. Not i've tried them all being that my sisters works in a solan and is always giving me "new" products to tyr for curls. I always go back to my AVEDA.
This is the best for my curls. They are soft, shiny, and I get lots of compliments-especially when I dry with a diffuser. Smells great, never crunchy No matter what other product I try, I always return to this one.
This gives me soft, full, well "clumped" curls, and I love the scent - classic Aveda. This is excellent for curl formation, but for maximum definition and frizz control I find it helps to also work in a little foam or gel. I have fine hair, and this is a great product because it really helps plump up and activate the curls.
Too heavy for my fine, wavy hair. Worked best if I diluted a bit with water. Worked well for a few washings, but built up too quickly given the protein in the product, which led to a dried-out feeling.
The question is what you looking for? If you like crunchy curls this isn't your product. But if you love smooth curls, you got it!
Works wonders on my 3A hair. I mix the curl enhancer with Aveda's confixor gel in equal parts and diffuse.. I get beautiful soft curls that lasts all day. Not too crazy about the smell though.
I have 3a hair and use just a pea sized dollop of this mixed with the same amount of be curly Curl Control. I scrub my hands together as my stylist showed me and then spread throughout my wet hair. That little bit goes a long way. I really like the results. Soft, non-frizzy, pretty curls all day!
Loved the scent, but it created build-up and didn't do much to define curls OR repel frizz. Exchanged it for something else.
One of my Holy Grails. I get shiny, soft, plump and defined curls. It's one of those products that truly transforms the appearance of my hair. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the scent - too earthy and medicinal for my taste, but it lies close once it dries.
the closest i've come to nice looking naturally curly hair. i combined this w/ my pantene curl gel (i like to mix cheap w/ expensive) and it works great! i suggest you use it w/ your favorite hair gel, it'll make your hair almost goddess like.
How this has rocked my shoulder-length 3b curls: smooth a quarter-size dollop through wet hair (closer to dripping than towel-dried). Twist into small sections. Squeeze twists with microfiber towel and then dry with a diffuser for a couple of minutes. Let air dry and then gently separate the twists. Would give this 5 curls if it had a bit more "hold" to it, but this product made my hair ridiculously soft and helped me create bouncy, larger curls.
This wasn't as anti-frizz or pro-curl as I thought it would be. It takes a handful to smooth down my hair, and leaves a film that feels tacky. However, it does eliminate most frizz and provides some assistance to my ringlets. Also, I can't stand the patchouli-ish scent. It's overpowering and unpleasantly follows me around all day.
This is my new favorite product. Great for controlling my 3a/b hair, but i wouldn't recommend with any more curl than that. The lotion spreads well and although the product is a little pricey, it will last a long time. The smell is nice and it leaves my curls very touchable, unlike my old favorite, tigi catwalk curls rock. Love this !
nice smell and no crunch, but by midday my hair was just big and puffy with no curl definition.
This product did help define curls, but it definitely did not help reduce frizz! I got a refund for the salon for the product, which was returned.
My stylist showed me how to use this product mixed with the Aveda Confixor. While my hair is drenched with water, I work it through my hair and then squeeze out the excess. These are the first products that have worked to tame the friz in my hair and bring out the curls!
Works great, but you have to mix it with Be Curly Curl control first, then apply the mixture.
Great product when used with Aveda confixer. However, I had to add hairspray (a no for curly hair) for it to be resistant to humidity and last all day.
Alright so I tried very hard not to make this item part of my permanent necessary products as it is very expensive. But I also have yet to find anything that beats it, my friends love the smell, and mixed with a little EVOO I think it gives me soft curls, It just seems a little drying to me.
It defines my curls really well and the smell is lovely!Gives a natural hold so if you like more control it might not be for you.
I really love this stuff. Nice curl definition and very soft. However, I don't generally care all that much about a little frizz so some people might want to combine this with other products. I don't think the frizz is that bad but I have friends who combine this with a gel.
Intense curls but could also be drying. I have to pair this with the Universal Styling cream because I need more weight to my hair not volume. This is the only product I have found that really does define curls. I just wish it was an all-in-one for me.
I can't believe everyone's giving such bad reviews! I tried so many things on my hair and everything just left my hair poofy and undefined. I used this stuff and it was like a miracle! It made my hair be very curly with defined curls, but not poofy at all. It probably doesn't work well on people with wavy hair but I would definetely recommend this to curly people with poofy hair that they want to tame.
Love this product ! It reall helps define my curls and tame the frizz. In the summer I mix it with Aveda Flax Seed gel for extra hold. It has a nice scent and I like the ingredients.
This product worked well to enhance waves when I relaxed my 3c hair. I tried it after I went au naturale and it doesn't do anything. It just made my hair look dry and frizzy.
Like I said b4, I done tried it all and this, my friends is a joke. It didn't do much for me by way of enhancing my curls. Just sat on the hair and created chaos. This is like kryptonite for 3C/4B hair, so if y'all see it in the aisles lightening speed in the other direction.
Gave me very good curl formation BUT I found it was VERY VERY DRYING to my hair. Did not help with frizzies. After awhile it made my hair feel like straw.
I just started using this product about a week ago. At first I would leave it in on it's own, but after having days of "poofy" hair, I decided to layer some gel over it, which works great. I now wonder if it's just the cream/gel combo that works best for me anyways...if so, BeCurly was a waste of money.
I thought this was the worst thing I ever put in my hair. My hair seemed to have become frizzier. It was so bad that I had to go back to the store to return it! I was really surprised about how bad it is!
This is a great lotion to put on your hair after conditioning it in the shower. I put a good layer on and put in a microfibre towel before adding in styling products. I love this out of the Be Curly line from Aveda.
I used to use this product for a while. It worked really well, but at some point my hair didn't care for it anymore and it wasn't doing a thing for it. This product, when it did work, left my hair soft, controlled, and healthy looking
I really like this stuff. It definitely helps with keeping the frizzes at bay, however, it gives some SERIOUS big hair...I love my hair big, just not this big. I totally agree on the volumizer comment. I added some retexturizing gel to it and it worked very well also.
Ack! This was like using nothing in my 3a hair. It had way too much frizz and no curl definition. Why should I spend this much on a product I have to mix a gel with to get any good results?
I like it when combined with gel, but it isn't strong enough to be used on your own. I use it with the Flax Seed and Aloe gel for great results.
Excellent product. Took away the frizz and put in shine and smoothness. I have tried alot of products and this one is well worth the money.
It made my hair soft, took away some of the frizz, and gave it pretty good curl formation. But, after several days of using this it made my hair sticky.
This stuff is amazing, I didn't think it was going to make a difference but this combined with the humctant pomade works so well. My hair was very curly and defined, I can't remember the last time it looked so good! Very Impressed! I really recommend the whole line of Be Curly and the pomade as well.
This product along with the serum and the Aveda curl control is the first thing that has actually helped define my curls and not give it that too much product look.
I love Be Curly! I also love the smell, which is rare for me (I think it's the marshmallow, because I like the way the way the Hang Straight smells, too). The only problem that I have is that it DOES volumize. I don't need volume. But it defines even the tiniest strands of hair. I find it works well if mixed with the Confixxor.
This is my current HG. I have fine hair. It gives me volume and curls, lots and lots of curls. I prefer cremes to gel and this is the best.
I have bought this on two different occasions. The first time, I found that it made my hair greasy and gross. More recently, I tried it again. It made my hair soft and kept the curls. However, it does not hold the curls or control the frizz!
Oh my goodness. This product is BAAADDD. I spent almost $40 on this product, along with the new Aveda Control Creme. Control? Not for my 3B curls. In fact, my hair is dull, frizzy and not tightly curled when I use these products. The lotion formula does not provide ANY hold. The second and newest product, the Control Creme, does not provide the hold or frizz control it promises. Save yourself some money and buy another product. Aveda needs to go back to the drawing board on this one; they clearly did not test on true curlyheads.
Ack! This was bad. First it made my scalp itch and burn but it also left my hair very greasy and "producty" feeling/looking and my hair just looked dirty and poofy some odd way. Would never try again.
After weeks of use, this product began to pull out my hair color (black over naturally brown); so much so that my hair looked as though I never dyed it. This is disappointing because other than that I had success with curl definition and frizz control with Be Curly. I would recommend this to anyone with similar hair (3B) who does not color their tresses. Everyone else should steer clear.
I love this stuff - it works without weighing down my hair - no frizz and no greasy feel either. It's the best thing that I've come across in the past few years.
My curls liked this okay, but by the end of the day I had an interesting oxymoron: lots of intense curls but also frizz that's cranked up.
Gave me good curl formation, especially when mixed with a little gel. Good consistency. Nice smell.
