Hi! I'm mostly a wavy (3a depending on the products I use) and I use this cream. It's inexpensive to try. It's weird, though, so don't freak when you open it .. green, thick and stringy. I think most of use mix it in our hands and put it on soaking wet hair and either rake/scrunch or scrunch in. I use a microfiber towel to scrunch it in then diffuse.

I bought this product on Friday and used it this weekend. I liked the results i got with it. I didn't put it on really wet hair, i sort of followed the directions on the product. I washed my hair (non CG) and conditioned like normal. Then i got out of the shower and scrunched some of the water out. I added a little bit of a curl activator by Charles Worthington. Then I began to diffuse. When it was damp I applied the GF.
I am totally new to wearing my hair wavy/curly but i liked the big soft curls I had.

I've tried this a couple of times. Its working better today I think because I used a curl activator (homeade epsom salt spray) first. When I used the GF alone, it was a bit heavy, although that time I raked it in instead of scrunching it in. Maybe the raking weakened my waves, I'm not sure. Although I thinks its a good styling cream, I'm not very good at products yet.

This product works best for me as a finishing pomade - and, the consistency is just like a pomade. I love this stuff though!! It works really well on my hair. I just follow my normal hair routine and then when my hair is damp, I rub my hands together until this Curl Cream is melted and scrunch into my hair upside down and right side up. It is awesome.
I heard the reviews on this and looked for it at Wal-Mart yesterday. The only one they had was dented in so much that I couldn't even read the directions. Oh well, I'll look for it at Target tomorrow. Sounds like something that might work well for my 2b hair.
I like the cream. If I'm using a gel or mousse that doesn't work so well I just put the cream in, about halfway through drying, and it helps. Yesterday and today I put it in right after Garnier curl mousse, while the hair is still very wet, and the curls were much more pronounced.

Do you mean the Garnier Fructis Curl Construct Mousse?
