Dec 23, 2012 - I am very surprised that the ratings are not even higher for this product. It is the best thing I have ever used on my hair. I am not exaggerating when I say this, I have found my holy grail. First of all is the way my hair looks and continues to look for up to 4 days. Second, this product is mostly natural and it is inexpensive. I have tried every recommended method out there to get smooth, shiny, frizz-free curls with reduced bulk and nice definition. This works. Here is what I do and my hair has held up even in rainy humid weather. First I wash with Devacurl no-poo, then I condition with same and scrunch with cond in it as water running through to clump up curls. I leave a tiny bit in when rinsing. Then when I come out of the shower, I press towel into hair and scrunch towel gently to squeeze excess water. It's ok if still dripping a little. Next I finger comb small amounts of QH Royal Curl and then with a relativly fine tooth comb, I comb it out straight. Next, I again scrunch, and now my hair is looser clumpier and I scrunch all around head gently with bare hands trying to maintain as much clump as possible and alsogently doing a grab and scrunch from about 6 inches down from crown upward so that the hair is not flat at the crown. Last, I don't touch again until dry. To dry, I sit under my Babybliss Pro hooded dryer for 15- 30 minutes and then wow my hair looks great. I don't touch it unless completely dry. I sleep with a pineapple and usually the second day looks even better than the first. I love this product!!!
