I Really like this product. I have curly fine/med hair. My hair gets frizzy usually at the ends. I have been using this under mousse and I get get great formed curls that are soft to the touch. Most times I cant get second day hair either and with this I have. This product is definitely a HG for me. Will def repurchase.

I don't usually write review (just read them) but I figured its time to give back. I've been using this leave in for 2 1/2 years now, and it has treated me well. That's says a lot from a PJ like me. I'll always come back. Hair is soft and moisturized...just how I like it. Thank you!

I've decided to delete my original review and write a new one after three years of continuously using this product. This, along with Be Curly by Aveda, are the only truly remarkable styling products for very curly hair I've seen to date. The scent is fantastic and I'm often complimented on it. I hope Redken never discontinues this product. 3C.

I have short, thick, curly hair. This is the best styling cream I've ever used. Makes my hair soft, controls frizz, keeps my style in place without the crunchiness of a gel. I sometimes mix it with gel if I want more hold. I like the real control shampoo & conditioner also. Would recomomend.

I am really impressed with this one. I bought it because I am running low on my smoothing lotion. I use it with a few other products and have been really struck by how smooth and shiny my hair looks. My hair is color treated and generally looks very frizzy and dried out. Total 180, and this is the only change in my regimen. Will definitely repurchase.

I bought this on a disgustingly humid long weekend in NY and it went the distance. I'm now in love with it - far more than Redken's Detangling Creme which I'd gone into their 5th Ave store especially to buy (spot the sap tourist!) The assistant suggested Crema Care and I chucked one in my basket to be polite but she was spot on! Thank you oh lovely freckle-skinned red-headed beauty (who I suspect has Irish origins like myself). She clearly knew her onions as was sensible enough to wear her hair slicked back in a chic chignon and not the Monica-does-Barbados frizzy hair nightmare I sported that entire weekend! At least I'll know for next time!

It's a huge tube for the price you pay, so I think it's definitely value for money, but I probably wouldn't re-purchase this again. I find it to be just a little bit too heavy and it feels a bit like it just coats my hair rather than penetrates it. I do think this product would work really well on very, very coarse hair though or for taming very difficult hair. The smell is also a bit heavy for me too..

I tried a small tube of this and was very impressed. It does indeed control dry, sensitized hair and makes it more manageable. It has a light smell that doesn't linger and it gives decent shine. I liked that it didn't weigh my hair down and gave some definition. Will purchase again.

About to purchase my second tube of this fantastic moisturiser. Have colour treated, half curly and constantly heat styled hair. Get lots of compliments on my hair and this is the reason. Not heavy but stands up to my needs. Love it.... use it every wash day with other styling products.

I use this stuff in combo with the shampoo. It leaves my thick, dry hair pretty soft and managable. I love leave in conditioners because they're so good at detangling and this one smells pretty good. I love it.

Of the three Real Control products which I purchased and have used three or four times (shampoo and conditioner and this styling product), this cream is the keeper. I have to use it after towel-drying my hair because the Real Control conditioner does not fully untangle my medium length hair. Granted, my hair is thick but it is not damaged and I only decided to buy this line because of the rinse I'm using on my hair.
This cream works very well to smooth out my hair which then becomes very manageable. Once I've blown my hair nearly dry, the hair is full and soft and requires no further products or even styling. It is a wonderful product. and I need apply only a small amount for it to work.
I will definitely repurchase Crema Care and I hope it works just as well without the other two mates which were disappointing experiences.

This is some wonderful product!
I have been using the little sample tube for months now, it's really a great option if you wanna give it a go, it lasts, and it was under 5 bucks at the local beauty supply. I love Redken for that alone.
I have only good things to say about the Real Control line!
This product makes styling my long, fine, wavy hair effortless. I use a dime size amount all over my damp hair, then apply a bit more in my frizzy, more problem areas, back in a bun to dry, and done!
My hair is silky, shiny, smoooooooth, and not weighed down (the most important one for me).
I'm going to invest in a bigger tube, and they looked quite generous, I imagine if the sample lasted me as long then the full size could go a very long way.
Good stuff! ;)
*UPDATE* I ran out of the sample tube and bought the full size, I have had it for 5 months now and I've barely dented it. Kudos to Redken for giving such a generous amount.

I've been using this product for several days now and I'm definitely happy with it. I have a lot of fine hair and it's damaged and dry from too much highlighting. This stuff makes my hair extra soft and less poofy and frizzy. The ends of my hair always look wrecked, but my hair is a lot smoother since using this product. I rarely dry my hair in an attempt to prevent more damage and it dries wavy and smooth. I will definitely repurchase.

I have really dry, frizzy, coarse, wavy/straight, thick virgin hair. I use the entire Redken Real Control line and love everything about it! The Crema Care is a leave-in treatment you use after you towel dry your hair. I let my hair dry naturally most of the time and this stuff makes my hair feel smooth and look well, in control! I have never used a line that actually works with my hair until now.. This stuff also smells great! I love it!

This is one of the best leave-in conditioners I have ever used. This keeps my hair manageable and extremely soft. If you're looking for shine, this will not give it to you, but it will keep your hair soft and free of breakage.

I love this product. I have thick, coarse, wavy, color treated hair. It makes my hair soft and managable when blowing it out straight. You only need a dime sized amount for short hair because if you put on too much it would probably weigh your hair down. I don't style my without it!

I am suprised to see such mixed reviews for this product. I tried it upon the recommendation from my hairdresser when I went from brunette to blonde. The cream did wonders to rehydrate and help my hair recover, its now back to being as healthy as previous. I have found that if you put in too much of the product it dries feeling a bit for lack of a better word "producty" but will usually brush out and feel okay. Definately a case of less is more. Crema Care also keeps my hair under control, my hair is fine but I have lots of it and it tends to go a bit fluffy like after washing but this has calmed down the effect and is also a good blow drying aid/protectant.
Will be repurchasing for sure..

I have loved everything in the Real Control line except this. After it's dry the texture of my hair just feels...off. I use it sometimes at night on the ends for the extra moisture, but that's mostly just to use up the (travel size) bottle. Will not repurchase.

My hair is frizzy, damaged, highlighted and thick. This creme made me feeling like there was something in my hair and it was really hard to comb through it...
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
This did nothing for my hair, except make it look frizzy, and feel like I forgot to wash something out of my hair. I did exactly what it said to do on the bottle, and it felt like it would of dried amazingly but I was sadly let down with a poofy, untamed result.
I am guessing that this is for people with really thick, uncontrollable hair.
