  • Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing Styling & Sculpting Gel

    Amazon 5 star review: “This product is amazing. I have fine hair and when I use Agadir Argan Oil Volumizing I feel like I have so much hair even though it’s fine. After washing my hair I squeeze a few drops in my hand and then massage it into the roots. A little goes a long way. After blowing my hair dry my hair feels very natural and full. It not only works it smells wonderful. I love this product.”


  • OGX Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream

    Amazon 5 star review: “Saw this product on a tutorial for curly hair. Thought I would give it a try and what a nice surprise indeed! This actually works! I have curly but thining hair, so it’s extra frizzy and this product kept it under control. It feels greasy but it doesn’t leave your hair greasy. I actually used this with another product (deva curl) and they both work amazing together! My hair actually has shine and looks smooth and defined curlys! It’s been years since I have seen my hair like this.”


  • Miss. Jessie’s Quick Curls

    Amazon 5 star review: “This cream is my main staple in my hair care regime. Please note I follow pretty simple care guidelines… No shampoo, a good conditioner, and Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls cream. That’s it. If I “plop” my hair overnight or cleanse and apply in the morning to air dry, this cream keeps my curls manageable and soft without weighing them down or any crispy crunchy stuff. I love it!”


  • ORS Curls Unleashed Aloe Vera & Honey Curl Boosting Jelly

    Amazon 5 star review: “The best I’ve tried yet. It doesn’t coat,flake or cause film on the hair or scalp. At least on mine. I use it with the jelly and the results are great. Nice natural curls and waves.”


  • EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Curl Defining Cream

    Amazon 5 star review: “I have kinky curly biracial hair and have used many curl defining products but this is by far my favorite. It gives soft curl definition and keeps my hair smelling great.”


  • Curl Keeper Original

    Amazon 5 star review: “I have naturally curly hair that 98% of the time I straighten it. Never really comfortable with my hair curly…and yes, it’s because I was made fun of as a kid. But now, people pay an arm and a leg for the curl I have!!
    Anyway…I was told about this product by a friend who has curl troubles just like I do. So, I fully trust her opinion. I read reviews, thought for the size, the price was right. Although it’s been a little over a week since I ordered it and the price has magically doubled…
    Finally got to use the stuff yesterday, watched a video or two suggesting how to use. Did my normal routine with application and drying…this stuff is AMAZING!!!! It’s beyond amazing!!! It’s the most spectacular product I have ever used for curl!!! This product provides exactly what it promises and MORE!!! I couldn’t wait to leave the house with curly hair today!!!”


  • AS I AM Smoothing Gel

    Amazon 5 star review: “Absolutely love this smoothing gel as an edge tamer that’s not too stiff. Sometimes I wet my hair slightly before smoothing it on with my hands (or a boar bristle brush), and sometimes I don’t. Either way, I follow with a satin scarf for about 10 minutes and my edges look smooth and shiny without that stiff hard look. Doesn’t build up and I’ve never had a problem with flakes and I use it daily with a weekly wash. In the cooler months, this will hold all day. In the summer not so much, but I haven’t found a product that can keep my edges perfectly smooth when it’s humid.”


  • Aphrogee Curlific

    Amazon 5 star review: “I have tried several different products that promised that it would define my curls -,the search has ended – this product loosened my natural curl anyone with natural hair knows the shrinkage problem we have once the hair is washed and conditioned – I rubbed the product in/on my hair and to my surprised my hair took on a satisfying style – swag ‘I was claiming it’ – If I was on a island stranded I could live there forever if I had my ApHogee curl definer and one credit card so I could purchase more definer when I ran out.”


  • Texture My Way Keep it Curly Stretch and Set Style Foam

    Amazon 5 star review: “I loved this product, I thought it was going to be sticky and drying but was pleasantly surprised. It feels like regular foam setting lotion when you first get it on your hands but makes your hair fell soft and moist when working it in. I used it on my dry hair (pressed for time) and it worked great and dried fast. I have only used it once, but so far I’m pleased with the results and hair is not greasy or dry.”


  • Cantu Comeback Curl Next Day Curl Revitalizer

    Amazon 5 star review: “I will admit I tried Cantu products previously on my hair and I did not like them (4B texture). Saw this and out of curiosity based on name viewed ingredients. I saw water and glycerine listed as first 2, Shea butter and castor oil in top 5.
    Immediately I opened and smelled the product (smells soooooo good) and I decided to try it.
    I am blown away! This is not only good for twist outs but also good as an “all in one” sprays on mornings when styling.”
