Aug 08, 2011 - I was looking for somethng to replace or supplement the uber-expensive Kinky Curly Curling Custard, and Queen Helene's Royal Curl Shaping Creme is NOT that product. This mess goes on hard and stiff. It has a jelly-like consistency, but absolutely no slip on my 4a/b hair. Instead of curl definition all I got was poof. My hair looks like the lovechild of Don King and Phil Spector. I was hoping I could use this product up rather than trash it. I'm going to mix it with my beloved KCCC and see if the results are at least humanoid. If I could give this product a big fat ZERO, I would!
