I know this is a very old product, and you can tell by using it. It reminds me of something men would have used in the 1950s, and stuff like Queen Helene Cholesterol or Carrot Oil Cream - hair creams you find with the relaxer kits.
As other have mentioned, the smell and texture is like glue, and it does not squeeze out of the bottle easily. I guess it can work for people who don't like the feel of silicone on their hair (this uses lanolin instead). Though this leaves a bit of a stiff feel behind - not hard, like gel - more of a 'film' on the hair. I found, most of the time, it just made my hair look and feel dirty.
I think if your hair is seriously fried and you do not like silicone and you use this very sparingly on wet hair, it might work. Won't repurchase.

This stuff is the worst in terms of scent and consistency. It smells like school glue and it's so thick you can hardly get it out of the bottle. It didn't do anything special for my dry, kinky hair, but the smell was so bad I didn't try to experiment. I squeezed it down the toilet and returned the empty.

This is my HG... but I think this only really works with very short (which I have) hair because the consistency is sooooo thick without a lot of "slip". I use it on my hair after it's dry, and it adds a bit of moisture back while helping to counteract the Houston humidity. It also works well as a heat protectant if I'm flat-ironing my hair. The packaging sucks (hard to squeeze the stuff out), but it will last you FOREVER... making it a decent value.

If you are allergic to lanolin stay far, far away from this. It gave me huge welts along my neck / hairline. Well, at least it helped me learn about my lanolin allergy.

yuck. i did not like this at all. even though i used a small amount (about the size of a pea) and only used it on my ends, it made my hair look greasy and stringy after a few hours. the cream is very thick and is probably suited to someone with coarser/curlier hair - to the point where it's hard to get out of the bottle it comes in. maybe it didn't work for me because my hair type was too fine/wispy, but the bottle does say that it's weightless and all that... you should try and get a sample before you buy it, i know it works for some people but it may not work for you (and i can see now that i'm not the only one with less-than-glowing reviews of this product). if you want something lighter and less greasy, try the heat protective straightening cream in the tube, that worked amazingly for me. i would not buy it again; the greasy formula and hard-to-use bottle is just not worth the money i spent on it.

I love this product. I see on here it has mixed reviews but i find it really good!! I use mine on dry hair. And its great for the days that i just want smooth hair rather than spiked on (i have a pixie cut) and it stops the frizz and fly aways and about 10 mins after its been on it makes my hair really really soft!! You definitely need to be careful for the amount you use. For my short thick hair i use about a pea sized amount and start mid way down smoothing it through with the left overs smoothed at the roots. I do agree that the bottle isnt the best desin i think either a pump bottle or tube will be better. But for the price it does last ages when you consider how tiny of an amount you need to use. I would definitely recommend this to others.

I cannot for the life of me understand what makes this product so popular. I keep seeing it in magazines and 'best of' lists, so finally I tried it. The results were horrendous; my hair was stringy, flat, and oily. And frizzy to boot. When I put the product on (wet hair), it made my hair sticky and impossible to untangle. I tried varying the amount, but no matter how much or little I used, the results were the same. It was like putting body lotion on your hair. The product is heavy and sticky, and has no ingredients that detangle hair. In conclusion, it makes your hair neither silky nor soft, and I would not buy or recommend this product. To anyone. Ever.

For me, this product has a very specific use - it's great for anti-frizz on a humid day when you have curly wild hair. And a little really does go a long way. You have to be really careful with it, otherwise it will go way greasy way fast. Having said that, the bottle lasts forever. I've had mine for, I don't know, 7 years? Because I only need it on hot humid days. Good for what it does. I give it a 3 because its use is very narrow, but if I ever finish the bottle, I would have no problem buying it again because it does its job well..
Oh yeah, and it's great on dry hair - the best, in fact

I have fine, thin, greasy, straight hair that, as you can imagine, is a joy to style. Pretty much every product other than those formulated specifically for my hair type make me look as if I haven't showered for a few days. This product, however, when used in a paritcular manner, makes my hair look a lot healthier than it has right to look. All I do is takea shower at night, apply a tiny amount to my hair and hit the sack. The next day, my hair look shiny and thicker, somehow, and only takes a few minutes of heat styling to look great. For some reason, this stuff works better for me than proper conditioner.
Until I find something better, I'm sticking with this stuff. A warning that too much of this stuff makes my hair feel absolutely disgusting.

Quite possibly one of the most overrated hair products ever. A small amount did nothing to my thick blond hair, and more just made it look greasy. A dab of Lubriderm is far cheaper and does the trick. I do not understand the cult status of this product.

HG for my very thick, unruly, wavy, long hair for the past DECADE. I wouldn't think of buying anything else at this point. Many people who know me think that I have naturally straight, silky hair. Those are people who have only seen me post-Creme. Just a TINY bit of this product and a 15-minute blow out transforms this mass into something manageable.
My first bottle was a gift back in 2002. I had been using Aveda Brilliant, and thought that was pretty good. But after Creme, I've never even bothered trying anything else. The first few times I used entirely too much, and I thought it would just be too incredibly greasy. I cut down to a raspberry-sized dollop, and it worked great. Now that I don't use very much, a large-sized bottle lasts me almost 9 months. This product ends up being quite economical when you consider how long the bottle will last!
I could see that people with finer hair would hate this product. It can easily weigh down the hair.
I don't mind the scent, but I am getting tired of it after 10 years...and the bottle could definitely be better.

I use this with the straightening cream from Kiehls and it does wonders! If I let my hair dry naturally-untouched and no products-I'll get this wavy, frizzy mess! I put those two items and i'll get no frizz and a little wave. I blow dry with these two products--WOW! Then i straighten and put in the no frizz serum from Kiehls---I NEVER got compliments on my hair till now!

I tried this product for a few weeks before giving up completely. I don't quite understand what this is supposed to do, but I am better off not using anything than using this. It had absolutely no effect on my hair.
I applied it on my wet hair, on my damp hair, on my dry hair... nothing worked. It didn't make my hair glossy or smooth. And the packaging sucks! The creme is actually quite thick and it doesn't squeeze out easily, so my bottle looks quite mangled.
I do like the fact it has no scent.
From my experience, this product is a huge waste of money.

i love this. i use this product when my hair is strengthen, and now my hair is perm with wavy curl and I love it even better. it slightly hold the shape naturally when i don't feel like to apply any styling products

Has this stuff been reformulated? It used to be the only thing that made my coarse frizzy hair look silky but the last bottle I bought (late 2010) is completely ineffective, however much I apply. As a general point also, the texture of the product isn't a good match for the bottle design - if you want to be able to access the last 60% of the contents, store the bottle upside down.

This is a great product to tame fly-away 'baby' hairs. I use it near my hair line as well as my ends. It helps to cut down on frizz.
Beware - a little goes a LONG way. If you use more than a dime size your hair could look greasy.

After using B&B Grooming Cream for about a year and a half, I turned to this product and, have to tell you, I really like it. It's light-weight and you only need about a pea size to achieve great results. I have medium body shoulder length curly hair and most of the time style it curly using a diffuser. With this product my curls look amazing; they are bouncy, well-defined and look like I have no product in my hair. It does make it look silky and does not add any weight to your hair. Men and women complement me on my hair and that is a true testimony to how good this product is.
To me, it smells more like oatmeal rather than tea with a hint of mint, according to other reviewers.
Try it. I think, you'll find this product worhty of your attention.

This is the only product I have used on my hair for the last 10 years, and I'm completely shocked by the reviews. I have thick wavy hair, and I always have really bad bed-head in the morning, but this stuff makes my bed-head look tame and perfectly styled. Maybe it's because I'm a guy and the messy look works for me, but this product is amazing. Girls always compliment my hair, and guys always wanna know what my secret is. The trick is putting it in your hair right after you shower at night, that way it's all soaked up by the morning.

I have thick, thick, very curly hair that is also is frizzy when it drys naturally. I have used this product for years. It is the only thing that keeps my hair under control. HG!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Olive Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
This is one of the best hair products I have used in my hair. Its almost like this product is a cross between conditioner and styling product in the way it sits in my hair. I use it as my everyday product and love it!
