MOP-C Curl Defining Creme - I think I am in love!

In my quest for a silicone-free hair product, I came across a thread on nc.com in which one of the members said that MOP-C was the closest thing to Curls Rock that she had found. I about peed myself because no silicone-free product had stood up to my beloved Curls Rock. I by chance stumbled across it at Bath and Body Works, and I was not going to pass up a chance to try it out.

I think I'm in love. As soon as I put it in my hands, I knew it was different than the other natural products I had tried. It had a very similar consistency to Curls Rock, which I know is what my hair needs. My coarse 3a hair does not respond well to gels or mousses, and most silicone-free curl cremes are too light and don't give me any hold. (ex. Biotera Curl Creme)

My hair isn't fully dry yet, but I can tell it is responding the same way as it did with Curls Rock. I have no frizz (which I would by now with other stuff), and I am a bit crunchy, but I can scrunch that right out.

I am so excited!! If I get second day hair from this stuff.. it might be my HG!

That is wonderful! I hope it works out great for you! I need to try this I think. I wonder if all bath and body works carry it or if it's just the flagship stores. Anyway, best of luck with it and I hope it works great when your hair dries! Keep us posted!

It was $18.00 for a tube at Bath and Body Works. If you get it and you don't like it, you can return it. It's kind of expensive, but I didn't use anything else in my hair with it.

I'm all about paying $18 for one product after 3 years of paying $15 each for 3 w/ Curls Rock.

I'm going to go back and get the spray and try it with the creme.

p.s... my hair is dry, frizz free, and defined. yay!

Is it not the most amazing product you've ever tried !!!

After I got the freebie, I went into a panic, because I couldn't find it locally and Bath&Body works doesn't ship to Canada. Msgiblet was kind enought to share this website with me ... www.sleekhair.com Their prices are better than any I've seen for the Mop-C, but of course you have to take the shipping into account. But if you can't buy it locally, it is always an option !

I seldom get 2nd day hair, but anytime I have - it has been after using this product. I've actually had strangers approach me to ask me what product I have in my hair.
Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
Update on the hair... I literally rolled out of bed this morning and just had to do minimal frizz touch up. YAY!!! AND I even got a hair compliment yesterday.

That seals it. I'm taking all my other stuff back today. Product search is over! (well.. except for KCCC.. i just HAVE to try that...) But seriously though...I love this stuff. No second day is NOT an option for my.. I am FAR too lazy to get my hair wet everyday. Any product that gives me 2nd day hair wins in my book!

Mop-C = HG for me!

Oh dear, why oh, why do I read these posts?! I used to LOVE Curls Rock but it used to give me terrible buildup and my hair couldn't handle the frequent shampooing to get it out.
And so the hunt begins!

I got some of this and have been using and LOVING it. I had to order it online (but only paid $14 for it). I love it so much that I ordered a few extra tubes just in case! I like it more than KCCC and Regis Curl Lock Cream (which were my two faves prior to trying this). Great curl formation, great hold, no frizz, no buildup. Awesome stuff!
Just picked this up at Ulta for $18.00. Can't wait to try it out!!

They didn't know whether they would get the defining cream in; I'm really hoping - it would be so nice not to have to pay shipping.

I can't say how long a tube would last, because I rotate my products all the time ... I've had mine for a couple of months now, but I only use it once a week (twice max). It is quite thick, so I wouldn't think that you would need to use as much of it as you do other products.

The other thing is that if it gives you second day hair, that is a savings right there !!

It is definitely more expensive than some of the other products, but if I was a one product girl, this would be my HG for sure.
Hooray for frizz free curls !!!!

Anyhoo, I was on a mission to find this today and was at the local mall and picked it up at Bath & Body Works. I'm do for a poo and the works today so I'll give it a try and see how it goes. I'm afraid I won't get the results everyone else is. I have the type of hair that seems to hate everything everyone else on here loves. Go figure!

Well I could just kick myself. I was at BBW today to get this. I tested a bit in my hands, then on my hair. Seemed good. Then I looked at the price and about flipped. $18.00 was too much. I use so much stuff now I couldn't justify it. Now I see that maybe I wouldn't need all the other stuff. I hate to go to the mall, so who knows when I'll get some. I'll be out of my current stuff in a couple of weeks, so maybe I'll go back then.

I think that the curl defining cream and curl enhancing cream are the same product just renamed. At least that is what it says here:

MOP C-System C-Curl Curl Defining Cream 5.1oz.

Now in new packaging from C-Curl Curl Enhancing Cream, same great product, just a new look!

MOP C-System C-Curl Curl Enhancing Cream is a unique curl enhancing cream to provide smooth separation without residual tack. Maintains curl throughout the day while protecting against frizz. Citrus infused for antioxidant support. UV shields preserve color while antioxidants shield hair from the elements.
