I really wanted to love this and have been wanting to try it for ages. It was ok but I could not stand the smell. I like coconuty, fruity scents but this smells like sweet and sour to me. Even my husband could not stand the smell.

Bought for my wavy-curly hair as sometimes my curls don't do what I would like them to and I get frizzy parts, this really does work, it smells lovely to however it can cause your hair to become greasier if you use too much.

First time trying this and I was Not disappointed. It gave me super soft, shiny curls and no frizz and because you use such a small amount it is great value too.

This product was a grower for me - always loved the smell, love the way my curls pop into ringlets when I use this product but found it a bit heavy for every day use............not any more, now I dilute in a spay bottle with water and I can use it every single day to refresh my curls and make my hair look and smell great and it works with any shampoo and conditioner I use. Love it, great price, great product.

This is one of my favourite products for my curls at the moment. I have thick 3a curls and this works so well at defining and clumping them. It also smells absolutely divine and I actually get lots of compliments on the way I smell when I use this! I use this as my day to day product because it is so affordable. I use looreal expertise sulphate free shampoo and conditioner to wash, use a bit of that conditioner as a leave in, scrunch a big dollop of this in my hair and then use eco-styler gel for hold. This is also really good for in-between washes to refresh with a bit of water! Only criticism is I think this has a tendency to build up a bit and I find it works better with a shampoo rather than co-washing.

A little goes a long way, I'm using less each time! I can't believe that I've finally found a product to tame my dry, thick, curly frizzy hair and it doesn't cause itching! I'm using Madara shampoo and conditioner too, this seems to be the best combo.

This is the second bottle I have bought of this stuff and I can't rave about it enough!!The first bottle seemed to last for absolutely ages so good value for money too! My curls are light and fluffy and bouncy. I have 3b/3c hair and when I use this in combination with Kinky curling custard and scrunch out the crunch - my hair looks absolutely fabulous! Can't wait for more length and more envious looks lol.

Very disappointed. After reading other reviews I was expecting great things but it left my hair very greasy & frizzy. Not good.

First time trying a product from the Cantu Shea Butter range and oh my! I will be trying a definite few others! I love products that smell nice & this definitely ticks that box. I have type 3A/3B hair and my curls love this product, helps add bounce back and defines those straggly curls that with other products tend to just do whatever they like! Absolutely love this product and I'll definitely continue to use this range if the other products do such a good job too.

I use this in conjunction with the curl and shine custard and the result is divine. I'm SO glad I finally found products that cheap that deliver such wonderful results. Just brilliant.

I am thrilled I have tried this product. I had been using Crown Pride curl control puree but they recently changed the formula and it no longers delivers the same results. My hair was left with dry undefined curls.
This works wonders. Even for my type 2 hair, it defines, gives a natural hold, moisturises and makes my hair smell delicious!
This is also very good value for money, the bottle is huge, it is one of the cheapest curl cream around and you really don't need much (well I don't- I just had my hair cut from long to a bob).
This is my new stapple! Hopefully this will be available on this website for years to come and it won't get discountinued (fed-up with having to trial so many products when one disappears before you find THE ONE again!)

I used this on my naturally curly hair and it made my curls soft, defined and didn't weigh them down like other cremes do. I usually use gel for frizz control but this was a nice alternative. The smell is strong in all the products in this range but it does die down when the hair is dry.
The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was my hair got a bit frizzy round the edges when I stepped outside into the damp windy weather. This is probably not the products fault as I do live in Scotland! I will try using a little gel with this product to improve the hold but for the most part I love this product.

I have been using this for a while, and I think it has proved to be better for me than the shea moisture smoothie. I have been using the same bottle for about a yr now on and off and only a tiny bit is needed it works great on its own or with a leave in underneath, I use KBB super silky but it works well with anything.
I like the smell, like the consistency and love the price!

This product is AMAZING! I have very long, thick curly hair and this product had just the right amount of slip that my hair needs. My hair LOVES this stuff. It leaves my hair soft and shiny and my curls are poppin'! You don't have to use much either. The smell is lovely, my BF loves it - Bonus! Great price range too! I hope this works just as well for you! Worth a try. Best wishes to all my curly Sisters out there =)

This is an excellent productr with a great price point. It left my hair bouncy and my curls were soft and shiny. I have already purchased another bottle so that I don't run out and panic lol The smell is wonderful too, my boyfriend loves it. Will have to try the rest of the range too! By the way a little goes a long way with this product, if you use too much your hair can get 'crispy' when this does happen just scrunch in a little vatica black seed oil for even more shine and it gets rid of the crisp! :)

The first time I used this on my daughter I probably used too much and it left her curls horrible. Second and third time it made her hair look FANTASTIC! This latest time back to horrible curls again. I'm giving it 4 stars for how fantastic it can make hair look but it's a bit hit or miss
