This cream really helps activate my curls. I give it a 4 just because it really didn’t do anything for my frizz which is also what the product is promoting. It contains a good amount of cream and smells great! I use it a couple times a week and always see a significant difference compared to other products I use. You do have to apply it evenly, because too much product in one section will harden your hair.

They was my favorite option in the past two years, worked great in my kid hair. But with new presentation the hair of my kid is terribly freezing, not styling only frizz. I stopped using and the curls come again. Not recommended for now

Curls on point

First of all, I have thick, wavy hair that tends to get dry and frizzy. I have tried numerous curl activator creams in the past, but none of them have worked as well as this one. The first thing I noticed when applying the cream to my damp hair was the amazing scent. It has a sweet, coconut smell that is not overpowering but still lingers in my hair throughout the day. The cream itself has a thick consistency, but it is easy to spread through my hair. I only need a small amount to cover all of my curls, which is great because it means the product will last me a long time. After applying the cream, I use a diffuser to dry my hair and the results are amazing. My curls are defined, bouncy, and frizz-free. I have received so many compliments on my hair since using this product. What I love most about this product is that it is made with shea butter, which is known for its moisturizing properties. My hair feels soft and hydrated, and I no longer have to deal with dry, crunchy curls. The cream also contains no harsh chemicals, sulfates, or parabens, which is important to me as I try to use more natural and organic products. I also appreciate that this product is affordable and easily accessible. I can find it at my local drugstore or beauty supply store, and it is reasonably priced compared to other curl activator creams on the market.

I use this on my little one’s and toddlers hair every day. It makes it soft and easy to brush and style. It smells a little strong but it’s not horrible.

I loved this product at first, but eventually my hair started to become more frizzy than before while using it for some reason. I don’t know how to manage my waves very well, but I’ve watched a lot of videos and I typically apply this in the shower after I’ve washed my hair and rung it out to prevent my hair from getting crunchy. Other than that, it smells really nice and the price isn’t outrageous like most hair products.

I use this for myself just because it works great. For me I use a pea sized drop. I scrunch my curls after I’ve moisturized them and this cream really holds them in place. I haven’t used another cream in years since I discovered the Cantu.

I love this product! I’ve been looking for something to help with my child’s hair because it’s so curly and this has made his hair look so good! The curling cream has helped his curls become more defined and spring like. This is used daily on my sons hair I would highly recommend to everyone! I’ve been getting all my friends with kids hooked on this product

This product works if you’re looking for a wavy hair style. My favorite thing is the smell. It smells amazing to the point you don’t have to wear any perfume

I use this everytime I was my hair and have been using it for years. Love it! No leave in needed. It adds the moister my hair needs. Honestly wish I used it more in between washes. This is my hairs holy grail as a wavy hair girl with LOTS of color changing and damage
