What does it mean when a product has a curl activator? Is it an scurl?

A lot of the time in the store it has some kind of cream or leave in conditioner with a curl activator. It seems a lot like an weaker version of an s curl for me. I dont want anything permanent done to my hair.

I don't think using a creame mosturizer or leave-in with curl activating ingredients will damage or change your curl pattern. If anything, it will help it pop. I've used products by the actual S-Curl line (not the texture softener) and I haven't had a problem. The no-drip activator and the gel work well together for wash'n'gos.
