Default curl activator?

what is a curl activator. i mean is it a chemical? because i was under the impression it was, like a texturizer or somthing, but made to make your hair curly. but i hear people with natural hair using it. so what is it exactly?

also i've been acused of using it (pic below), i don't btw, thats what made me wonder what it was.

This is the one a lot of curlies use. As far as I know, its used like any other gel. I used it in middle school.

I use Care Free Curl Gold post twist out. I just rub it throughout my hair. My dad has been using Care Free Curl Gold on his little 'fro for years. My dad put his on hair and scalp while it is still damp and lets it dry.

It works good on dry or wet/damp hair

LOL if it was just water i have to admit i would've hatin 4real (im honest about mine LOL)...but you're welcome, either way ur hair makes top 5 fav lol.

you can use curl activator like any other get ONLY i would reccomend using it much more sparingly because glycerine is high up on the list of ingredients so it could take FOREVER to dry if you use too much.

You may want to try it (but what you are using now seems to give you nice results too), i love it for my frizz & dryness-prone 4a hair. moisture, shine, softness.
