Jul 31, 2009 - I am 3c/4a (I think). Overall, I liked this product. It reminds me a lot of Aveda Be Curly, except there’s no terrible smell and it’s not chocked full of silicones. I didn’t expect it to have a lot of hold, but it actually has a decent amount.There was some crunchiness in the finer sections of my hair but none at all in the coarser parts. I was able to get second day hair with this product . As for the frizz factor, I still had some, but then again, I always have some frizz so that’s no surprise. I actually used it initially after doing a DC overnight. I rinsed, leaving a little of the DC (jessicurl wdt) in and and then applied the texture paste. This was a good combo as far as softness and defintion, though I found some white flaky parts in my hair once it dried. By itself, it’s not terribly drying though I like it better with a leave in under it. Again, this is not super curl definition, but I would not call it a light hold either. Also, there was no curl elongation for me, if you’re looking for that.
