This has become one of my go to products ever since I started getting my curls together. I’m always worrying about what products will weigh my hair down because when I was straightening my hair the oil would build up fast. Now that my texture has change I need to moisture in my hair even more. It allows my hair to be more manageable without weighing it down. It is slightly tacky but nothing to bad. I don’t have issues with it flaking either. It adds a good amount of moisture to my hair.

I am absolutely in love with this product. A few years ago I had super curly hair but then I dyed my ends and I cut most of my hair off, now my hair is fairly short but still past my shoulders and because I dyed my hair it became damaged and my curls fell leaving me with very dry frizzy waves. I began using this product a few weeks ago and it's absolutely a life saver! It smells amazing, it has a coconut sent to it, and the consistency is kind of like a sticky / tacky lotion feeling, I applied it to my hair right after I washed it and I combed my hair afterwards. When my hair dried my curls made a comeback, it made my hair look super moisturized and smooth. My curls were definitely defined as could be and I started using it every day since then and my hair not only smells good but looks very healthy!

Magic in a bottle? I think so. I don't know why I ever stopped using this product. As a wavy girl, I haven't had the best experience with curl creams, but this curl activator cream is amazing on my wavy hair! Doesn't weigh my hair down and it really does "activate" my curls!! A little goes a long way and it has a slight hold and controls frizz!! Love this product!

I usually use cantu curling cream in the jar but decided to give this a try. Both products seem very similar but I like the curl activator cream better. I have very tight small curls that tend to lose definition and become tangles very easily. When I used the curl activator cream I released my curls last longer. All cantu products are very affordable.

This product actually does give you curls hours after a wash, I’ve used it nearly 15 times but the only thing that bothers me is the white debris it leaves behind on top of my hair, I noticed it when I start rubbing my fro it’s just flakes start falling out, I MAYBE will buy this product again if I can find out what am I missing to stop those pesky flakes but as for now I’ll stick to just washes and oils.

I focus this product along my ends because it’s a stronger hold I don’t want to weigh down my volume! Gives great definition. I sometimes just mix it in with the curling cream and distribute it through my soaking wet hair.

I do have to be careful with what products I mix with Cantu creams. Sometimes it’ll end up with white flakes in your curls

This is my go to for a wash and go. It’s a good cream to use with you are try to define your curls and you want you hair to last. I use this product after a leave in conditioner then after I’m done with this is when I’ll put in a gel.

Works well for individuals with natural hair. It isn’t too expensive. It’s a thick cream product. If your hair is thick, you will need to use a lot of this product. I recommend using it on your hair if your natural
