It gave my hair a nice, natural hold. It didn't leave my curls crunchy feeling or a weird white foam like other alcohol gels do. Only complaint is that is smells like rubbing alcohol.
I have 3b/c hair, with low porosity and high density. I have been natural for 16 months with a/b an inch or two or relaxed ends. After pre-pooing my hair all night with coconut oil, I wash my hair with my regular shampoo and conditioner then put this on for a wash and go style. This made my hair stiff and crunchy with a lot of shrinkage. It made my hair curl into little tight curls. I was not happy with the results. I have used it before with the BT moisture butter doing a two-strand twist style. Came out better that way. If you use this I strongly suggest using something with a lot of moisture to have soft curls. Otherwise it will be hard, and the white flakes were in visible. I will not purchase it again.
The product definitely helps with definition but not as much with the hold as I thought it would.
I thought I was familiar with all products in the BT line, but ran across this over the weekend while in Sally's. I figured, for the cost, why not give it a try. By mixing a little of the curl control defining pudding in with it, I twisted my hair Saturday evening, sat under the dryer and left the twists in all day Sunday. I did notice it dried hard Saturday night, but had faith that my twists would soften up overnight (as I'd had that experience with some other products) and they definitely did . My twists were bright, shiny and bouncy all day Sunday. I did notice a few small streaks of white in some areas. Not sure if I used too much product in those areas or failed to blend it in all the way, but this was easily resolved by sort of scratching the flakes away; not much work and nothing too serious. Monday morning I rubbed argan oil on my finger tips and took my twists out. The curl definition was incredible and I love the bounce and shine of my twists and no flakes. That being said, I'd be interested to see how this works for my WNGs. As of now I'll say I would definitely purchase this again, though the jar is so large, I know it will be a long time before I actually have to repurchase. 4 curls because there are several other products I use that don't dry into white streaks/flakes even when I use too much in some areas; this should be corrected. Update: This product kept my curls crazy defined for 1 week. Would have been longer except it was wash day. Also, after using the product again over the weekend, no white streaks/flakes at all - likely "operator error" on the first go round - so it gets all 5 stars from me, especially for best definitiion!
Definitely helps with curl definition but it left my daughter hair with white flakes every where, wouldn't recommend it.
This was my first experience with a custard. It added moisture and definition, but lacked long-term hold for me. I tried both air drying and diffusing and found better results after diffusing, but the waves just did not last. Even though this lists wavy as a texture it works for, I think it is really not meant for my fine, 2a waves.
When I first used the curl definer styling custard on wet hair, my hair felt soft. It had a lot of curl definition. It was moisturized. My hair dried fast. I had a lot of shrinkage after my hair was dry. however, the next day, my hair looked and felt dry. also, I had a lot of flakes. I had to wash my hair again after 4 days. I wanted to like this product but I didn't.
