Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes hair greasy This styling creme is not meant for my hair type. I am Black and have type 2, curly and wavy hair. This product made my hair extremely greasy and the hold did not last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for curls, but also an amazing blowout cream My hair is coarse, thick, and naturally wavy (mix of 2B and 2C). I normally straighten, but do sometimes wear it natural/wavy. I picked this up since it is silicone-free and I'm trying to remove those from my haircare. I bought this hoping it would add some extra moisture to my hair during styling and reduce frizz. My hair is about chin-length and I use about a small dime-sized amount of this. Work it through my damp/towel-dried hair & comb through, followed by gel, and let it air dry. I definitely notice more curl, less frizz (although I do still have some), and my curls/waves are significantly more defined than if I skipped this. This doesn't have much hold, just be advised. Also, not at all how intended to be used, but this makes an absolutely incredible blowout cream. I again used a dime-sized amount, followed by a little of the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore blowdry creme (for heat protection), and blowdry with my usual round brush technique for straightening. My hair comes out gloriously straight and shiny, with absolutely zero frizz. Even on humid days, my hair is still better than my previous "good" hair days using silicone-based products. This product does have a strong tropical coconut/beach scent (as most Cantu products do), which I personally enjoy, but if you dislike coconut, be warned. I personally find this works best on damp, towel-dried hair. On soaking wet hair it can foam up, and on dry hair it flakes something terrible. This is so cheap and has great ingredients, so I will always keep it on hand regardless of how I choose to style my hair day to day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected Works great for definition for my daughters curls. Wish glycerin wasn't so high on ingredient list, causes frizz when it's humid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave Cantu products another try and liked them! I was hesitant to try other cantu products since one product left flakes. I use this days after finger coiling my dry, tight 4c hair. It truly moisturizes the coils!! I pair it with Comeback Revitalizer

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me. Heard great reviews for this product and bought it. This might be a good product but my hair dint like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not to heavy or greasy. This worked great on my hair. Not to heavy or greasy feeling. Also I mixed with water in spray bottle for quick touch ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WashNGo I used this by itself for a wash and go. Didn’t leave a cast on my hair. When I first went natural, I hated Cantu. But now that I’ve been transitioning for almost a year and half, I enjoyed this a lot more. Plus it’s cheap

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!!! I've only used it once this morning, but it truly "activated my natural curls". I used it while my hair was damp and I am so far pleased! Definitely will continue to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Cantu My hair is very thick and I would say my hair is 4a with a little bit of 3c in the front. This product was very moisturizing and a little went a long way since it is a thick product which I like. My curls were defined and they lasted for over a week. Also you can't beat the price, so I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This activator is a little heavier than the curling cream so i only use it if i need a little more weight on my hair. i have a lot of 3b/c curls so i use it in the summer when i need a little more hold with the define and shine. love Cantu!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this!! Makes my hair curl and smells amazing!! I do add oil (Mane Choice Egyptian oil) to my hair before applying, but I love this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard, crunchy hair This is my first experience using cantu products. I have 4a natural hair. It made my hair dry and hard and not even a little bit moisturized. I can get the same results with gel, which is what I didn't want. If you're looking for soft, moisturized curls you may as well keep looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful short coils I couldn't be happier with this product for my short 3c/3d natural hair. On towel-dried or dampened hair I apply cream, then use a fingered hair sponge to create 2-3 inch coils. My beautiful hair stays shiny and moist for three days. Sooooo simple, quick and beautiful

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A No No for me I am now transitioning to become natural, therefore I wanted to try this product. It did create some curls, but once it settled in...I started to to have white flakes all over my hair. I was late to my event, due to trying to take all the white flakes out of my hair. I don't recommend this product at all, but I'm still looking for the right item for my hair
Date published: 2017-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love love love this product is excellent, I have 3c hair and I wanted to stop using gel for a while and thought to give this a try because it was all natural. You don't need to use a lot of this product, and it's a super buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Activates Your Curls I've always been a fan of Cantu products due to their price points and the fact that their products moisturizes your hair for days. This product does that and so much more. It moisturizes your curls and defines them as well. Great product for those who like to rock Wash n' Go styles. Also created shiny, bouncy twist outs! With this product, I don't feel the need to moisturize my hair the next day. Just spritz in the morning with either water or a curl refreshing product and you're good to go!

I Applied mine but refused to be curled .my hair is still the same.what could be wrong .

Asked by: Wabule347
I used this as a moisturizer. You might try a gel product if you are trying to define curls.

Will it work well if I have a perm for curly hair 

Asked by: Sebas2221
This product works well for curly hair but its very thick! For permed hair I personally would suggest you use something light and this is heavy product!

Trying to get away from using gel. Does this define your curls?

Does it work for all types of hair

Asked by: Zg4416gh
It depends on the look you want to achieve and the amount of product you use with or without other products. It may be heavy for fine hair. I have coarse hair and it works great for my hair. I do find that it does not moisturize enough for my dry hair and I need to use it as a styled with a moisturizer. Hope this helps.

Does this product do the same as the curling cream does what's the difference can these 2 products be used together?

Asked by: Peachies
For me, yes the products do the same. I don’t use them together because it makes my hair flakey. I use the curling cream on damp hair and i use the other on dry hair.

Would this help my daughter's hair...Her hair is dry and curls mostly 2c some 2b?

Asked by: Mandy326
It would be worth a try. I have seen it it work wonderfully on others, I can only use like a pea size amount on my hair, mine is a 3a/b. It is very heavy. I put water on my hands with it as well.

how long does it take for your curls to come in after using this product ? 

Asked by: Chloe2002
The name of this cream is a little misleading. It won't "activate" curls that you don't already have. If your curls are already there and are healthy and moisturized, this cream helps them, but it won't give you curls if you don't have them.
