I have dyed low porosity 2A-3B hair. My ringlets fall more on the top of my head with waves in the bottom layers. This is an excellent CG curl cream for the price point and it is widely available...

Summary: good for curls, but also an amazing blowout cream. My hair is coarse, thick, and naturally wavy (mix of 2B and 2C). I normally straighten, but do sometimes wear it natural/wavy. I picked...

Sorry to rant after all of these raves. Let me start by telling you about my hair. Thick and rebellious. I have been working with various products throughout the years to know that there is no...

I have pretty "regular" hair with a slight wave. This product doesn't enhance my waves - I think you really need to have natural, actual curls! But I mixed some of this with distilled water and...

This is my HG curl cream. It is kept in the ethnic hair section most places, but I can attest that it works on my curly locks as well~ This cream is not overly fragant, does not weigh down your...

Surprised at how much I liked this. I expected it to weigh my hair down but it doesn't. I use about a quarter size amount on my shoulder-length, fine 2a/2b hair. It does feel moisturizing and...

It is so frustrating when something so popular in the curly world just isn't right for you and it feels like, just you sometimes. That is the case with this curl cream. This is gets great ratings...

I have fine low porosity 2c waves but really straight roots. I chose this because it is a curling cream and a leave in all in one and it has a lot less thick consistency compared to other silicone...
