I love using this product as a healthier alternative to mousse or hairspray. Keeps my hair in place and soft not crunchy or sticky. Also it does not smell bad! Perfect for curly hair!

This product never worked for me at all. The first time I used it, it left my hair very dry (I have 4c hair so that may have contributed to the fact that it didn't work for me).

As much as I did not want to say it, this pomade was a fantastic product. Yeah, it doesn’t smell too great. But that’s the only downside. This product is actually a damn good water-based pomade.
It has strength, some shine, and doesn’t dry up into a helmet. It will lock-in but not freeze up cement-style. On some days, you really don’t want to fuss with an oil-based…whether you’re lazy, it’s a windy day, or whatever. This product locked in my hair just enough to keep it looking good all day and night, yet not enough to make my hair rock hard.
This pomade is all good in my books — definitely a standard that should be in everyone’s cabinet.

I just recently purchased this product to try something different to use in my dreads mixed with Simply Nature Unrefined Cold-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil and fresh aloe gel. I would definitely purchase this product again because my retwist has lasted long than most products I've used & also because it smells good 👍

I used to really love this for the smell, and what I thought was moisture to help with smoothness. This gives my curly hair ZERO hold, but what I really take issue with is the residue that it leaves behind no matter what combination of products or how little I use.

This pudding left me feeling nothing but neutral... It's not awful and it's not great either. I use it everyday, but ALWAYS with the Olive Oil Edge Control and never alone. This 'smooths' like no tomorrow, but I prefer to keep my hair straight rather than natural, so any chance of this 'holding' all on its own is out the door... Aside from that, I absolutely LOVE the amount of product in this container; it's huge and I honestly can't foresee myself running out in the near future. It's lightweight, smells amazing and I have zero problems with VISIBLE residue. This probably would've been 4 or 5 stars for me if I actually wore my hair in its natural 4c state

My mom would prob. give this 5 stars, but it doesn't really work for me! It leaves residue on my hair- even when I don't use that much. My hair did remain soft, but I just didn't like the white flakes that are left in my hair the next day and it doesn't leave my hair as sleek as I would like for it to be. Nonetheless, this is my mom's go to product that she raves about lol
