MopTop Curly Custard

Like Tree2Likes

On the road (and in the air) again, but I wanted to share my impressions of MopTop's latest styling product, Curly Custard: Wow! and it's a keeper! If you want definition, elongation, and something that's resistant to high humidity, you'll like this.

A little goes a long way, and once in your hair, it slicks out any tangles. And it dries quickly while leaving a shine. If you use too much, just use a little water on it or let the steam from the shower soften your hair. It's water soluble, dries clear, and "plays well" with leave-ins.

I'm bumping this thread because a friend of mine received a sample of this product and she's really liking it. She's keeping a hair journal right now, so you can see what Mop Top Curly Custard does for her.

When considering the ingredients, it looks like something that my hair might like. From what I've understood, it's relatively light and it has nice hold. Is this right? My hair gets weighed down so easily and I need some hold, otherwise my curls become waves again.

Another questions is whether you can get it in Wallmart or some similar store. My boyfriend is currently in the US so I could ask him to bring me some.

Please let me know

Mop Top products are not available in Walmart. The site has a salon/locator where they can be bought.

*experimenting and loving it!


Based on reviews, MTCC seems like one of those products a lot of people fall head over heals for, or fantastically hate. Some of the hate may come from glycerin being so high on the ingredients list.

A similar love/hate inspiring styler is Heaven in Hair (Devacurl). It has glycerin as its second ingredient too.

My hair generally hates concentrated glycerin at just about any dew point, but loves HIH by Deva on a temporary basis (all those quats/polyquats create nasty buildup). I'd try MTCC but I don't want my curls elongated lol ... But maybe if I used less than usual I could preserve the springiness ... hmmm

Funny, I really liked it in the higher dewpoints. Have to remember to use it. Now that our dewpoints are normal, it's okay. I have things I like better. May need to use another layer of product with it.

Hmmm. HIH seems to work for me in all dew points. Go figure

You know what finally did me in was FSG (at least temporarily). Well, I'm sure I'll rotate back to it, but for now I can't use it because it completely over-conditioned me. I think that's because I didn't realize how high the humidity had climbed. The other problem is that I tend to be heavy handed with product, including the FSG. FSG is great in general, though, so moisturizing and (at least for me) added so much body. But as usual, the lesson is: Moderation. Moderation. Moderation!

Hmm I don't need my curls to be elongated. If anything, I rather have the contrary happening!

Ah, FSG... Such a fantastic gel. I just think it is convenient to have something else at hand, too.

This is a nice product but just isn't for me. I've tried it in high and low dew points, with and without leave ins and I just can't get the hold I need. It leaves my hair too soft but it is shiny and smells great. It is on the swap board, if interested.
