Jul 07, 2012 - I have 3C hair 2-3 inches past my shoulders Ok so i do REALLY LIKE this product but it isn't perfect and it doesn't do all the thing it says that it does. First of all its not a thick and heavy as the word custard implies. I was very happy to find that it was quite light and blended right into my hair nicely. (My tip is to make sure you cover ALL of your hair root to tip while its still soaking wet) After I had it in my hair i let it air/drip dry. It took a VERY long time to dry. Most of it was dry after a couple hours but some areas near the roots at the back of my head weren't dry until the next day. (Next time i might use a diffuser) Once it was dry it was a bit crunchy but definitely not as bad as most curl gels. After i scrunched a little oil in it it was fine and I didn't notice and chipping or flaking. It had very nice shine and definition but it did make my curls shrink quite a bit. My hair is 2 inches past my shoulders and after it was dry my hair was barely shoulder length, which really bothered me. I slept on it that night without a scarf or a silk pillow case and the next day the curls were still well defined. Still no flaking/chipping. After the third day it started to wear off, but it left my hair much less frizzy, shiny, and soft to the touch. My hair did get a little frizzy, but not as bad as it would have been without it. I do like this product and i would use/buy it again and even recommend it to a friend but it is NOT perfect.
