I'm going to give this a good rating in that I KNOW it works...just not on me. I had a coworker who was a curly girl like me, similar curls just a bit looser and her hair was slightly thicker. She used this product and she would come to work with great hair. I believe she was co-washing with a drug store product and then using this to style. It did not work for myself unfortunately. I have very very fine hair and this caused build-up like nobody's business; I wouldn't recommend it for my fine-haired friends simply due to that.
I totally love this stuff! I have 2c curls. I use it after I have moisturised my hair with the Lush R&B moisturiser. I first crunch dry my hair with a microfiber towel and after that in crunch in this creme-serum. It makes sure that the curl will hold. It does not make the hair crunchy but keeps it nice and soft for the rest of the day. I do dry my hair a little bit with the blowdryer to make sure it will have more hold. The only downside of the product is the smell. To me it smells like man shaving foam ;-) But luckily I do not smell it in my hair.
So this product I could do without. It's a bit too sticky for my taste and doesn't give my curls as much definition and shine as I would like. When I use this line, I typically skip this product. I will say it's pretty nice for smoothing my hair for a top knot bun. That's enough to give it a 3 rating.
(I HAVE 3B/3C HAIR) It's a bit sticky, but less sticky than the SheaMoisture Curl Souffle. It doesn't leave any crunchiness or weigh the hair down. I like its fragrance, but it faded quickly. It's not my favorite product.
This is one of my favorite styling products for my 2C waves. It doesn't leave any crunch whatsoever, and is light enough to not weigh my hair down. In my opinion it gives the perfect amount of hold and definition.
I must admit that, as much as I've enjoyed the cream-gels that are coming out everywhere now, I was skeptical about a cream-SERUM. I figured it wouldn't have the hold that a gel could provide and would get gunky like many serums can if too much is used. This cream actually had good hold, and while I used a small amount (around a marble's worth for my just-past-my-shoulders curls), my curls didn't show signs of buildup until I used this 4 consecutive days without pooing--a pretty standard period of time. Much like thicker creams and serums, it was so-so on rainy days but solid on all others.
