Jun 18, 2013 - I really wanted to love this. But, it fell short of mye expections: Pros: The hold is great. I had nice curls for a few days The body and curl formation are incredible! I had big, bouncy curls. My coworkers noticed immediately how big my hair was when I first used this cream. The smell, love it! Cons: Build up! I don't wash/wet my hair every day so after a few days, the product began to develop a sticky residue. You couldn't SEE it but you can feel it. I had to use a sulfate shampoo to wash it out. I have to use a lot to get a good coating on my hair. My hair is fairly long and thick, so a dime size ain't gonna cut it! It's drying. Maybe it was the build up, but I felt like it dried my curls out. The build up issue is what turned me off a bit, I really wish that it was a little cleaner in the hair. I tried leaving conditioner under the hair to see if it will soften up the build up but maybe that made it worse? I haven't tried it without leave in yet. I'm afraid it will REALLY dry my hair out big time without it. Not sure if I'll repurchase. If it didn't have the build up and drying issues, this would be an awesome product.
