i've seen quite a few reviews of some of the Queen Helene products and i was dying to try them. Baby Big Hair did a review on curl shaping creme and the curl smoothing oil. you can also find another review by Beads Braids & Beyond on the curl shaping creme. i'm posting those so you can see how it reacts in different hair textures and to prove that this stuff really is THAT awesome!
let me just say i first read reviews on it in july and it took me until august to find it in the store. they were sold out every.single.time! that has to be saying something for it right? the pricing is pretty good on it, it's $7.99 for each thing. i took it a lil step further, i bought the shampoo, conditioner, curl shaping creme AND the curl smoothing oil to test out.
1. i LOVE the smell, it's not too over powering but strong enough to smell pleasent
2. it's working for mine, A's, Man's AND my husbands hair.
3. a little goes a long way
4. the price
honestly, there's not much more i can say because the ladies at the links above said everything that i would say and i hate being repetitive. lol what i can add is my husband has the coarsest hair texture out of all 4 of us and he said that his hair feels a lot softer since he's been using it. he applies a little bit of the oil to his hair before he brushes it in the mornings. the oil has been giving all of our hair the right bit of shine without it looking overly greasy. i've used the oil and the creme everyday in the styles i've posted this week.
this is my hair once dry. it was really really soft and it didn't feel crunchy AT ALL which i really hate. check out that shrinkage.. crazy right?
