This stuff is the absoloute WORST product I've ever put in my hair. That's strong for me to say. It is literally the equalvalent to putting straight up glue in your hair, especially after it dries. This made my hair take 10 times longer to style/straighten. In the middle of straightening my hair with this gunk in it, I eventually got fed up & I stopped what I was doing, turned on my shower, & jumped right back in to wash all this gunk out of my hair. So, I basically had to start all over again. Not something I was happy about doing. This was so terrible I immediately had to make a review on this to potentially save someone else from buying this & making the same mistake I did. This made my hair frizzier, not smooth or shiny, DID NOT help me in the process of straightening my hair, & made my hair uncontrollably unmanageable. For reference, I have naturally wavy/curly thick hair, which I usually straighten. So an amazing smoothing cream is vital. Unfortunately, this isn't it. I'll stick to my HG Silky Sexy Hair control creme. It smells & works 100000000 times better. This cream also smells nasty. Idk what it is, but it smells too sweet. When it's in your hair, the smell gets worse. I was getting naseous just from the smell alone, & for the fact that I spent $22 on this crap. Thanks to Sephora's great return policy, I returned this & got my money back. I definitely will not be making that mistake again.
