Design Essentials Natural Curl Stretching Cream
I love this product. I wanted to try this stretching cream out because I wanted to minimize the shrinkage of my curls, in other words elongate them. This product by Design Essentials made my hair feel moisturized for more than one day. It also added some volume to my curls. I even love the fact that it doesn't contain any parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, or silicones. So, I'd definitely think about repurchasing this product even though I found it pricy. I would recommend not to put too much in your hair because then it will feel like its piling up in your hair.

Great for 4b thick hair
I have natural hair and this is a curl stretching cream. It works well for my braid and twist outs and gives me some moisture. I usually rebraid my hair every 2-3 days and I never experience product buildup. I slightly spritz with water and aloe vera juice followed my this product sealed with coconut or jojoba oil. My hair loves this stuff. Yes is it pricey but a little goes a long way. This also works well for my daughter who has mainly 4a curls.
Product combinations can have a huge effect on how well a product works on your hair so here is my regime.
1. Palmers Olive Oil Condioner-PrePoo
2. Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo
3. Dr Miracles deep conditioner
3. Aphogee 2 minute reconstructive conditioner
4. As I Am Leave in (in search for something new, I don't really like it#
5. Shea Moisture Heat protectant #to blow dry my hair) I uaually leave hair 20% damp for braidout
6. curl stretch cream

Not Even If It Were Free
Not only did it not provide any moisture relief for my 4b/c hair, this crème left my hair feeling like I applied it, then stepped right in the middle of a wildflower field during pollen season. Tacky!!! It went back of course (for that kind of money).

I thought you should get what you pay for??
This product did NOT do what it says. I specifically bought this product to lengthen my curls. My coils shrink so much and I asked the salesman for something to make them longer. He shows me this product and I'm instantly taken back by the price!!!! $30?? I was hesitant and he told me that with my discount card and the monthly sale, it would be cheaper and that I could bring it back if it didn't work. I got home, used it, let my hair dry and..... it's like I didn't even put it on there. My curls were the exact same length as always but now, my hair felt heavy!! Needless to say, I'm taking this back. My hair smelled good and wasn't greasy but it just flat out didn't do what it said it would and for $30, that's the LEAST it should do!
