Dec 27, 2009 - First, I agree about this product's strange attributes: it has the consistency of watery Elmer's glue and smells like mint and oranges. And, I agree with others that it can cause hair to be too crunchy or weighed down. For me, I found the perfect way to use it. I have 2A hair, and because it is thin, most curl products tend to flatten my hair to my head or weigh the curls out into mere waves. First, I tried using this product and then following it with light gel. That was a sticky crunchy mess. But, the next time, I tried something very different. After getting out of the shower, I very lightly blotted my hair with the towel so that it was still pretty wet. Then I spread 1/2 teaspoon of this product between my hands. with my hair being so wet, the cream spread evenly throughout it. And, I did not put anything else on my afterward. Once the hair was totally air dried, I scrunched out the crunchy parts and was left with beautiful bouncy curls without any frizzies!! I suggest using this very damp hair technique or using this product solo if it seems too heavy for you.
