*I didn't find this exact product on the Curls website, so I'm not sure if this is available any place other than Meijer. The website does have a few products that seem similar to this though.
The scent is hard to explain. I don't want to say it has an alcohol smell, but it does sort of remind me of some alcohol based gels. It isn't a strong smell though, just not fruity or flowery.
Thick liquid, not sticky or greasy and doesn't leave C's hair feeling crunchy, flaky or greasy and doesn't leave any build-up.
I've used a little less than half a bottle of this, so I might come back with a different opinion later.
I have used this on C's hair along with the Curls Creme Brule and the Curls Lavish Curls Moisturizer on completely free hair and ponytails with free hair.
As I said, I might come back and do another review on this later, but as of now I'm not too impressed with this product. I didn't notice any less frizz or any more definition. Each time we've used this, I added generous amounts to C's hair. I'm still going to keep using this, but I'm not sure I'll ever try it again once the bottle is empty. I feel that this is a fair review considering we did go through almost half a bottle and got the same results each time, but I will keep using different amounts and using it with different products to see if I like it any better. I did like the fact that all the products we used were from the same company, because a lot of times products will work better together when they are all from the same company than if you use a different product for moisture and styling. But whatever works is what I'm going to do!
I have tried the entire Curls line available at Meijer except the shampoo. To me shampoo doesn't really matter as long as it's sulfate free so I'm not sure if I'll try that or not. We have about 8 bottles of sulfate free shampoos- each one gives us the same result, which is why you won't see many shampoo reviews here. I have to say, the Curls line is not the best product out there, but it gives decent results for the price. Since nothing else we've tried has been any better, this is our product line until we find something better :)
Have you tried this or any of the other Curls products? What did you think?
