This stuff is really good! it's a little difficult to figure out how much you need. I always end up putting in a little too much. but once it dries and you scrunch it out, it's fantastic! defined frizz free curls!!
I have frizzy 4a hair. I found this product to be really oily. All it did was make my hair feel greasy. I threw it away.
My hair is probably a 3a/b in curl talk & about as long to the middle of my back. I'm a hair product junkie. If its for curly hair, I'll buy it. I love this stuff! It's better than Miss Jessie's curling custard. For me anyways. It's like a mix of a leave in conditioner, gel, & a pomade. Perfect. It also rinses easily out of my hair & it's all organic & that's a good thing. The smell is yummy. I wish it could be packaged in a pump type bottle but I think that would be difficult as its consistency is very thick & jelly like. That's the only con I have about this product. I hoard it & always have 2 jars on hand. Lol.
I bought this after reading a lot of great reviews. I also had great success with the line's curl smoothie. I did not have any success with this product. It did the opposite of defining my curls. It turned them into huge frizzy puff balls.
I tried using a small amount alone on my hair. I tried using over products. Then I just gave up. It made my hair feel sticky and weird. When I washed, it did feel moisturized. I can't imagine using this just to keep my hair moist when other products will do the same.
The only pros are moisturization and the coconut smell. The cons are the odd texture, the jar leaking, it being awkward to apply from a tub and it just not defining curls.
I cannot find a use for this even as a leave in. No matter how I apply or how little, my reacts and turns into a giant frizz ball.
I love this product! I was sleeping on it for a while due to so many bad reviews on multiple websites. I'll never do that again!!
I have never had one problem with this product being tacky/sticky. It's a gel but it's not. It provides a ton of moisture and hold to my curls without being crunchy and dried out and it makes my hair so shiny!
I can go a good 3-4 days without re-moisturizing my curls. I've never had any product do that before (and I am a product junkie!). The souffle doesn't sit on my hair and feel greasy either. Any other styling product I would use for twist outs always required me to re-set my hair with more twist every night and morning. When I undo my twist in the morning, I don't have to add anything to my hair...I'm good to go!!
I find this product a winner...the price, how much you get, the small amount that needs to be used, and the scent...makes a great product. If I could change anything, I would prefer the packaging to be a squeeze tube, to help prevent loose strands of hair getting into the container.
I will add that I cannot go more than 4 days without co-washing or shampooing my scalp/hair so for the ladies that don't wash their hair that often, this could be a negative about this product. I definitely think it has the potential for 'nasty' build up. Since it is so moisturizing on my hair I would never want to re-set my twist out with more of the souffle. I would probably just add water and re-set.
i have dry hair I use this with the cream, and it defines my curls and leaves them moisturized defined and not nappy and crunchy
Despite the negative reviews I still picked this up because when it comes to hair and beauty products everything is subjective. First of all a little goes a long way and its best to apply it over another product as the finisher. After cleansing my hair I apply the SM Curling Smoothie or Curling Milk in sections. Then I apply the Souffle last...also applied in sections. Once completed I twist my hair and then go about doing something else for thirty minutes. After 30 minutes I untwist and separate with my fingers. I allow it to air dry and my hair looks shiny and healthy. Curls are defined and not sticky at all. I can keep this look for about three days and only touching it up with the SM Curl Shine and water once a day. This is the best way to use the Souffle. Combined with another product its great but by itself it definitely is a hot sticky mess. For me I will definitely re-purchase.
I did not like this at all. I dont know if I was using it wrong or it's just not for finer 3b hair. Its slimy and gooey and just did nothing beneficial for my hair. I had this exchanged for the hair smoothie which worked alot better for me
Great results when used on freshly washed hair and paired w/SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. My hair had well-defined curls and was very moisturized. Loving these products and will definitely repurchase.
Some people complain about the product being too oily. I believe that they are using too much product. A little goes a long way. Don't post bad reviews if you are not following the directions. Holy grail product for me.
Does a good job of softly defining my 4a curls and kinks. However, it's really greasy, so a little goes a very long way. I can define my hair the same way with $1.00 Ampro clear gel without the greasiness, so I will use this up and not repurchase.
