Biotera Curl Creme: Love it or Hate it?

So a few days ago I walked into Sally's Beauty Supply with the sole purpose of buying a certain product:
Biotera Curl Creme!!
Though I've only half way tried the product [I slapped some on the night I bought it and had decent results] I was rather impressed with the resulting feel.

So here's the questiong I've been dying to ask all of my Curl Girls out there...
Love it or Hate it?

I don't like it. For me, it causes frizz.

Hate it. One of the few products I tried once and then returned. I hated the smell. I hated the way it made my hair look (limp, soft, blah). Yuck.
Loose botticelli curls and waves
No silicones/no sulfates since March 2008
I didn't see any difference in my hair with or without it. Not worth the smell. I am still interested in eventually trying the gel.

I'm going to be the odd one here and say that I actually like this one. It's not my favorite curl cream but I'd buy it again.

It didn't do much for me and I hated the smell so much that halfway through the day I had to wash it out.

Fine, 3A, but a lot of it.

My hair didn't like this much either, ok results immediately after styling but as the day progresses the curls really lose definition and frizz out a lot.
You need to try the boots curl creme! i bet its a millions times cheaper too.

I didn't like the smell and it gave me white flakes when mixed with certain products (I forget which ones).
3b with a little 3a
Mostly CG, but I love me some amodimethicone.

Cleanse: V05 Kiwi Lime Clarifying Conditioner; CJ Hibiscus Bliss low poo; LLL Green Tea Cleanse
Rinse-Out: Kenra moisturizing conditioner, Redken All Soft (old formula), LVPNG, LVPHG
Leave-In
: Agave nectar plus Sebastian Potion 9 or Aloeba
Style: Dab of QCCC, Re:Coil or Mop-C under BRHG/HESMU combo

I love it! However, I do have to qualify that by saying I use it with a little Curl Keeper over the top and then a little gel over the top of that. However, with this combo I'm having the best hair I've had since I used to use Dove Defining Texture Cream (since discontinued).
I have 3A hair. I've discovered Jessicurl shampoo and Too Shea conditioner and I'm thrilled! Long-time LA Looks sport gel user.
