I keep buying this product because I love what it does for my hair, but there's a few things i'd change:
-it's a bit heavy. i have to use a very small amount
-for the price, it runs out fairy quick
-the smell isn't great
-packaging is annoying, it's in a squeeze tube so i always feel like im missing out on some product in the corners.
however, i use it with the cottonseed curl booster (also by the body shop) and always have perfect curls. i usually run out of this product before the cottonseed stuff, and my curls still look ok without it, so i'm starting to consider if its even worth buying. is great for very frizzy hair though!
This smelled like plastic,made my hair feel weighed down and didn't help while curling. It also got a split along the closing seam and product came out. Threw it away.
Curly, frizzy heads rejoice! This is your lucky day! I went to "The Body Shop" today at the mall and commented to the beautiful African American clerk about how pretty her curls were. She said "Thank you, it's "The Body Shop"! The product is "Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz". She went on to tell me about customers who when visiting from Europe stock up on this product. She told me about other curly heads who rave about it. So I thought, why not, let's give it a try. WOW, my curls have never looked so defined and beautiful! Combined with a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, this product, and plopping you can't go wrong. You can also use it on dry hair with equal results! Check it out, you have nothing to lose and many beautiful curls to gain! :)
I read about the wonder effects of brazil nut from Singapore's largest newspaper - Urban by Straits Times.
It is really one amazing tube of anti-frizz cream. I have tried so many other serums, oils and creams to tame my damaged, frizzy hair, but to no avail. Plus, the smell is so sweet and pleasant, I feel like just using it as hair perfume.
I only stopped using this after I started on Asience Shampoo, as Asience is really good enough to make any after shampoo products absolutely redundant.
I hesitated to buy this as I feel that the $22 is pricey for a small tube that doesn't lasts long.
I borrowed this when getting ready at a friend's apartment and loved it so much she gave it to me. She said it made her hair look greasy -- she has thin, shiny hair with a slight natural wave. I have extremely thick, coarse hair with a moderate natural wave. The Brazil Nut cream holds and defines my curls without weighting them down -- making my waves look sexier and stronger, and not frizzy. I find it works regardless of whether I put it on wet hair at night or if I put it on wet hair in the morning (nighttime = more curl).
The fragrance is also fantastic - very nutty, creamy, slightly sweet. I often use it on my dry hair to redefine curls between washes and increase shine. I love how it works through my hair cleanly, I feel like all the product is absorbed. The product is great because my hair doesn't feel heavy, crunchy or weighted down as it often does with silicon products, gels or mousses. In addition, it leaves my hair very soft.
My only issue with it is that I feel like I need to use more of this hair product than comparable synthetic products (two large dollops), perhaps because it's glycerin based? -- so perhaps overall it's not as value-conscious. But I will totally stock up at TBS next time they have a sale, because I do like knowing that my hair product is more natural and the results I get from this product are so good.
Oh yummy! This smellls divine and does the job it say's on the tube. It really controls me curls and makes them smell gorgeous!
I have curly Carrie Bradshaw hair in red. I use the Honey Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner. Often I put a shot of Almond Oil in the shampoo right before applying. I run this through my hair when it's still got a lot of moisture in it - I gently squeeze my hair with a towel, add this and then dry with a diffuser. I follow with a light hold hair spray (Paul Mitchell 'Worked Up') I don't have to do any twisting or twirling to get my hair to go into Shirley Temple ringlets. Sometimes my boyfriend finds my airs and plays with them saying 'Boing! Boing!' so I must be doing something right! I love this stuff because it's really kind to my hair and nourishing.
A miracle product. I'm on my 4th tube. Smells fantastic, and makes my (platinum blonde, bleached, dry and damaged!) hair healthy-looking and perfectly manageable.
I love this hair cream. It gives me tight defined curls which are also soft and flexible and feel like I am not wearing anything, this is light as air. I can only tell I have it on because I have tight defined curls. I love this great fragrance too, I love the smell of all the brazil nut products, I'll have to try out more of them. Unfortunately the fragrance fades away quickly and then I can only smell it if I really press my curls hard against my nose and sniff deeply. I didn't used to like TBS products at all because they boast about how natural they are and then it turns out they are not all that natural and have all the usual chemicals in them. But if you can live with that then they do have really decent products.
A yummy, gorgeous-smelling product that leaves my curls looking and feeling great. Not enough to use on its own though, I have to add a gel or curl-booster with this. It's great though and I will definitely repurchase!
