Dryness causes frizziness and out-of-control hair. C.H.S. Curl Keeper™ enables you to become the master of those gorgeous frizz-free curls. Hanging your head over while bending forward helps to dry the roots and gives the curl more bounce. C.H.S. Curl Keeper™ is a water-based formula, which means you can use it everyday without product buildup.
Directions Comb Curl Keeper through wet hair from roots to ends for an even application… FOR VERY FRIZZY HAIR, USE ADDITIONAL PRODUCT. The less movement that occurs during the first 15 minutes, the more control you will have over the frizz. Once your hair dries, you can easily soften your look by simply moving your hair around. The more you play with your hair the more volume you will achieve. Some people start appreciating their volume and curls once they have total control over the frizz. The Curl Keeper formula re-activates with water, so simply re-wetting frizzy areas with wet hands could get you many fantastic frizz-free days between shampoos.

I'd heard loads about Curl Keeper and was so excited to try it and it did not disappoint! My curls are more defined and there's never any product build up or crunch (if I leave my hair to dry naturally then I just scrunch out the crunch and am left with soft curls). I still get a bit of frizz but that may be because I don't use enough!

I bought this because of the good reviews but I'm a bit confused by this product, it states 'total control for frizzy hair' on the front of the bottle and then on the back 'for frizzy hair use additional product' - it also states that the less movement that occurs in the first 15 mins the better so I've concluded that I've either got VERY frizzy hair or I move too much. I have very long hair so I've tried varying amounts but haven't had that wow result - it either made no effect on frizz or my hair went lank and needed wetting again, I find that I still need a blob of Curl Cream from Boots (the pink stuff that's about 2 quid) which continues to be my 'go to' product- the search continues......

I have must gine curly at 46 for no apparent reason, so thak goodness for this site! I bought this off of its recommdation for fine hair. Mine is very fine, lots of it, and probably somewhere in the 2bc or 3a range. It has always held curl well, and gets frizzy very easily. I find this really easy to use, although it is a bit runny. I put a 50p piece sized blob into my palm and rub it into my wet but not dripping hair. I then dry it with a diffuser, and go to sleep with my hair fanned out for best effect. The next day I scrunch it a bit to get the crispness out, and it then stays in lovely wavy curls for a good couple of days, with the occaisional refresh of either spraying with a fine water mist, or just scrunching with wet hands after I go to the bathroom. So its very minimal effort which is nice, as I have arthritic hands and shoulders. I am starting to experiment with curl boosting gels, used at the same time, but it doesnt really need it unless its a really blowy day, as we get here on the downs.

Curl keeper is an excellent product that keeps your curls in place without any friz I have fine hair and this product has proved to be one of the best that I have ever used. I initially recevied a sample of it when I ordered some stuff and that was how I got to try it out before purchasing one for myself. I would highly recommend this product.

Didn't provide any styling hold and only minimal effect on frizz, so for that price I'd say it's not worth the money. Type B2/3 hair

Was sent this as a sample and fell in love with it. Have used at least 3 bottles - but lasts ages. Used it with blow-drying on a daily use.

I have been so delighted to find this product. I used JF Gel for 20 years and it kept my curly hair right by simply applying after shower and leaving.
I was distraught when JF gel was discontinued and had shocking frizzy unkempt looking hair that I just had to tie up.
I tried lots of new products that didn't work.
Then I found this product. It's the business.
Just apply to wet hair and that's it.
Hair down again!

This stuff is AMAZING. It defines my curls without making them look wet, and I can just wet my fingers to reactivate for second day awesomeness. And it smells like heaven. Love love love it.
Posted by Alison on 9th Sep 2015
This is so nice to use, it gives your hair some slip and makes it easier to fr curls and it doesn't leave the hair crispy or stiff. It also seems to last and last. This is the second bottle I've bought in 2 years.
Posted by Zoie on 4th Sep 2015
This product is simply brilliant, used in the correct way it does not cause shrinkage and holds your curls without any crispiness. Used after the application of a good hair moisturiser on damp hair it eliminates the need to use an additional leave in.
I use this product in my hair for nights out or days out when I want to look more amazing then usual, as this product adds volume, boosts your curls and holds your style with no stickiness and no shrinkage.
Only a little is needed making this product good value for money. This gets the big thumbs up from me.

3B. Medium porosity.
So after two years of being curious, I finally got myself some Curl Keeper! I stumbled upon it, pretty cheap, on an online store I use a lot, and I couldn't resist.
It has the same hold as my Ouidad gel, but allows for a little more volume. Also, my second day hair seems to look better than it does with Ouidad - less frizzy and more a good kind of wild.
It's more like a serum consistency than anything else. Ouidad, to me, is like 'thick water', but Curl Keeper is a lot smoother and absorbs into the hair MUCH faster.
I've also noticed my hair is far softer with this than with using my regular gel and the scrunch is SO much easier to scrunch out.
I managed to get VERY GOOD 5th day hair the first time I used this. But I think that was a fluke of some sort? Using it since I can only get up to my regular 3rd day hair. maybe 4th if I wear my hair in a ponytail on the last day. Not that I mind – that's still good!
All in all, I'm pleased I finally tried this. I'd still like to find something cheaper though, as gels seem to be my most expensive hair product and I'd love to change that.

I've just started my journey in discovering products for my curly hair. I find this product one of the best that I've tried so far for styling . I am 3a/b, it's gives me a good control of my curls and it's light , reactivates easy just with spraying a water and my hair doesn't feel greasy even on a 3rd day .
Posted by Laura on 26th May 2015
One of the best styling products ever for my 3a/b hair. I mix it with my other styling products and guess what: it works !!!
Posted by SuMu on 13th May 2015
I have 2c hair and I really liked this water based product for taming my curly frizzy hair but not being too heavy or causing clumping as I like my curls light and skinny.
Posted by Sarah on 12th May 2015
This really is amazing stuff, i like the smell and it does what it says it will, it has helped with my frizz wonderfully. I used to have a lot of halo frizz and this is stopping that now. I used it with kccc and i am getting the results i have longed for for years.
I would highly recommend this product and i will certainly be buying more.

I was using Jessicurl confident coils but decided to give this a try and am so glad I did. I like the lightweight and water soluble nature of this product. Made my curls well-defined and frizz free for 3 - 4 days - I do put just a little of their gel on top. To get 4 day wear I just put a little water into my hands to reactivate the product. To prevent my hair from drying out I layer on top of a leave in conditioner like Kinky curly or Jessicurl. Will be purchasing again as even though Jessicurl is good I think this is better cause more lightweight.
Posted by Unknown on 3rd May 2015
Best product for frizz free curls especially during the humid months. I use it under my gel and my curls are so defined.
Posted by curlycat on 23rd Apr 2015
I had seen the curl keeper videos on you tube , but had thought , it cant be that easy just anther overpriced marketing hype.
But then i had a sample sent by curl emporium with anther product I had purchased and wow amazing , soft, defined frizz free curls and I can easily get 2nd or even 3rd day hair after using. I co-wash as usual then apply leave in conditioner with curl keeper on top and a little gel to finish of.
I can then either partly diffuse or leave to dry naturaly depending on time available. I have type 3a/b hair which is fine but thick and i only use about a tablespoon of product. Hair does dry crunchy, but a quick scrunch and i am good to go. Would definitely recommend and have purchased full size from emporium.

I've recently started using curl keeper & its the best product I've ever used.I only need a tspn full,and it reactivates with water(or spray leave in),so I go days between washes and reapplication.its lightweight but gives me nice hold and definition.I highly recommend to anyone with my hairtype
Posted by Unknown on 20th Feb 2015
I've recently discovered that I have 2b curls. Curl keeper is the best product I've used that has given me consistently good results. I have been trying out a lot of products lately!
It never leaves my low porosity hair heavy or greasy, no matter if I'm heavy handed with it, which is easy to do with my hair.
I like to use a hard hold gel over the top of curl keeprt to set my curls while it dries (usually diffused). I can get 3 days before I need to wash my hair, which would have been unheard of before I went curly!
The only reason why I have only given 4 stars is due to the price.
Posted by sarah on 20th Dec 2014
This is my most essential product. I put it on soaking wet hair and after about 15 minutes in a curly towel let it dry naturally. It manages frizz like nothing else and I end up with lovely spiral curls.
Posted by Seema on 28th Nov 2014
Was sent this as a sample with another order. Tried it and found my thinning hair looked very fresh and healthy after heat styling. Keeps the frizz under control. I wash my hair every day and used the sample for 10 days and decided to order the 8oz bottle.I am sure it will last ages.
Posted by Curly 3A on 25th Nov 2014
I re-ordered this product and will sure do it again. I just love it! I like it, that it's on water-base. After putting, I wait about 20min. and before my hair is completely dry I put some Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Souffle and I get very nice curls!
Posted by Curly3A on 26th Jun 2014
I really love this very light product. u can easily put it into your hair (in few sections) detangle ur hair and then scrunch it. I air-dried and also dried with diffusor, both works perfect.
It would be great to have this product in a bigger size!
I will buy it for sure again.
Posted by Kim on 17th Jun 2014
My hair is cherub curly with a hint of botticelli. It is curly but the frizz takes over. I use this product by itself sometimes: when it does the job but best used with a leave in conditioner. I do love it and recommend it for anyone with similar hair type.
Posted by hayleyjayne on 28th May 2014
This is the best product for my hair. My hair never feels weighed down and dirty which it has with other products.
My only issue is the small bottle and cost. Wen oh when will the salon size be back?
Posted by Unknown on 27th May 2014
For my 3b/3c hair this is great and stops the frizz perfectly. Will the large bottle be on sale again? These small bottles don't last long!
Posted by Sarah on 16th May 2014
I can't live without this product for curl definition and frizz control. It's not perfect - not sure anything is - but it goes a long way. I'd prefer it to be in a bottle with a pump.
Posted by Andreia on 24th Apr 2014
it's just great!!! My curls are amazing!!!!! but the price is a little high becouse you spend a lot off product each time it's used....
Posted by jeanette on 8th Apr 2014
best yet for cur;y frizz--wouldn.t be without it now
Posted by Unknown on 28th Mar 2014
i bought this product with high hopes. it has an amazing smell but poor hold. i now use it to control canopy frizz and for second day hair but is not strong enough straight after a wash. quite expensive too
Posted by Eloise on 25th Mar 2014
I just bought my second bottle of Curl Keeper as I can't live without it now! I have fine waves - curls and this product creates definition and hold without weighing the hair down. I also suffer with frizzy hair but this product gets rid of the frizz too. The best thing using it gets wet it reactivates so if it rains it's no problem! No more frizzy hair..yay! Defined curls ..yay!
I do find this works best when letting hair dry naturally.
Posted by Gilbert on 18th Feb 2014
I have 3b hair which has been cut to stop the curl, for around 30 years. Although still short after 5 months growth the product is definitely helping with frizz control. I am on the second week of The CG method, Lorraine Massey, and wonder why these products are so expensive and difficult to source?
Posted by Unknown on 14th Nov 2013
I'm a wavy whirly and, depending on it's mood, my hair can either have bouncy ringlets or limp, frizzy waves. This product is great at reducing frizz and encouraging those curls. Reactivates well the next day and doesn't make hair feel producty. I use a gel on top for extra hold but haven't found a curl activator to rival this. One Star off for eye-watering price.
Posted by Unknown on 19th Sep 2013
What can I say, it works! no frizz but ignore the directions to comb through or you'll get frizzy hair. Use your fingers instead. I also used it with extenzz and found these two products with hairvedas green tea sample oil cream woked wonders. Soft hair all the way!!
My hair is 3b/c hair
Posted by Megan on 16th Sep 2013
I really regret spending money on this product. I tried using it in different ways and combined with different products. The result is always the same - dry, frizzy hair that looks like it's made of plastic. And the smell is horrible, plasticky and cloying.
I think it's finally going to the trash can.
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Sep 2013
Tried many products, gels mousse, serums and waxes. This beats all of them. I estimate it reduced my frizz by 90% and really defined my hair. My hair is thick 2b/c but very prone to fluff/ lack of definition. Twisting and scrunching really encouraged curls and mild scrunching alone made more wavy than coily curly - still kept the volume but in a nice way.
I found using more than you would normally for products produced best results, didn't build up or make my hair heavy/greasy or dry.
Expensive but worth it.
Posted by Alison West on 22nd Aug 2013
I have used this for several months before giving a review (thorough test) and I do love it and have ordered more! It 'organises' my curls and keeps them bouncy and frizz-free.
Posted by Unknown on 10th Jun 2013
I am a 3b/c curly and am still not sure about curl keeper! Because of my low porosity, I can't use products on soaking wet hair. So far I have tried this on damp hair in the following combinations:
On its own
Under a leave-in and styling creme
Leave-in, then curl keeper, then styling creme
Leave-in, styling creme, then curl keeper
I think the last combo has been the best so far, but today I am going without it to see if it really does make that big a difference to my hair! I may have to come back and re-review!
