I'll start out by letting you know I have thick, naturally curly hair that has been permanently colored. I used this in conjunction with the matching conditioner. This was the only change I made to my hair care routine, which includes a blow dry and a curl conditioner sculpting cream. The smell was nice, not overwhelming (and I'm pregnant so everything smells more intense). My hair felt so soft in the shower. When I got out I applied my curly cream and went on to dry it. Once I started to blow dry my hair started to get noticeably frizzy. The closer my hair got to drying the frizzier and dryer it got. I ended up having to use a leave in conditioner to moisten my hair and then more of my curl cream to get rid of the rest of the frizz. The final result feels gross, weighted down, and it's still a bit frizzy! I don't even want to try it again because my hair feels so awful.
