Jul 28, 2014 - I know this curl cream is the Grail for so many others, but for me it's mediocre. When used alone it is good for softening my hair, making it shiny, and some detangling. It does not define or elongate my curls, it looks "stringy", and it has zero hold or frizz control. However, when used as "prep" beneath Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee I get the definition, elongation, hold, and frizz control from BRHG, and a lot less crunch to scrunch from the Amplifier. Any curl cream can do that so this Amplifier is not a necessity for me. I have coarse, low-porosity, dry hair.
