Rated 4 out of 5 by tiggerkenwood Smooths the frizz but does not enhance curls
My hair is usually very frizzy; and, with this product, there is no more frizz.
However, don't make the mistake of thinking this product is for enhancing curls. It is not. It works well only for smoothing them. But, that's good enough for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PatK Not much in curl retention
My girls have the most curly hair and it gets frizzy. I was hoping this would help, but although it smelled good, it didn't do much in the curl department.

Great product and great price. I like a little firmer hold so I combine it with another product and have found the combination to be the best I've used thus far.

Besides the amazing smell, this product softens curls and moisturizes them too. Such a good value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AshleyM Not for thick curls
This product feels basically like a concentrated version of the Desert Essence Coconut Conditioner. It's very moisturizing, but provides very little hold on my thick curls.

This product applies to hair easily and is absorbed quickly. Leaves hair softer, with more body, no greasy look. I highly recommend it, especially for long hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aWOLF05 Best hair cream I've tried!
This product is simply divine! I wasn't expecting much since I've gone through numerous hair creams, serums, leave-in's, etc. My hair is fine in texture (but I have tons it), with soft waves. It's been difficult finding products that leave your hair manageable, yet define a curl & have even layered several to attemtp the effect I want to no avail. This ONE product alone is all I need and works perfect for me! I use it as a leave-in after I shower & my waves are enhanced, yet toucahably soft, defined & volumized. No stiffness or residue whatsoever & the smell is delicious! I don't think I'll be parting with this product anytime soon. Finer hair would benefit most from this because of it's light-weight texture. Courser hair would need something more rich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Djonae18 Love this with water added
I have really come to love this product. At first, it made my hair feel like their was too much buildup with just one use and a little product, but I have realized that I need to put run a little bit of water over the product in my hand and it works perfectly. I have fine-normal 3a/3b curls and the product alone without water can be a bit much for my hair. With the water, this product doesn't weigh down or feel gummy, sticky, or like their is buildup. It has a thick consistency so the water helps water is down and thin it out, it also makes it much easier to apply. I absolutely love the strong coconut scent it has and the bottle has lasted me a long time. This is definitely one of my top 3 stylers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kz2where Great for curly hair!
I love this hair cream. It encourages the curl in my hair without making my hair "crunchy" the way some products do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loridimaio Fantastic product!
I was looking for a clean, non-toxic, cruelty-free hair cream to soften my curls when I found this product. I thought the expensive Aveda product I was using was my only choice, but this one is much less expensive, works exactly the same on my hair, and is gluten-free. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel89 Soft, weightless curls!
I use this conditioner right out of the shower, and I LOVE the effect on my wavy/curly hair! A lot of curl products leave my hair feeling stringy or (ew!) crunchy, but not this stuff; by the next morning, my curls are soft, loose, and bouncy. And it's light enough that it doesn't leave my semi-oily roots feeling greasy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bron No weight curl definition
This is the best leave in hair product that I have ever tried. I wet the top layer of hair and then I mix maybe quarter tsp with the same amount of water, and work it all the way down the strands of curls. When dry, the curls look healthier than I have found with any other product. They stay well formed and without any "product" weight, so they bounce and sway instead of getting sticky, stiff, and weighed down. Honestly, the best for my normally frizzy loose curls and I'm so pleased there are no chemicals rubbing up against my face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peep Amazing!
I purchased this trying to avoid all the nasty chemicals in today's products.. and I love it! I have wavy curly hair and need very little to improve the curls & wave naturally in my hair it smells so nice not too overbearing and tolerable for me considering I have lots of issues with fragrances. I am going to try more products from dessert essence... priority to avoid harming animals & the planet & mostly chemicals that I DO not want to be on my head or body! Thumbs Up DE!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4cqueen Best of the best
I have 4c extremely dry, extremely curly afro hair. I discovered this product by chance and I cannot live without it. This is one of the few leave-ins that my hair absorbs immediately. My hair feels completely nourished. The protein of coconut absorbs, unlike 100% pure coconut oil, which makes my hair crunchy. This is a holy grail product. I combine it by putting first on my hair Curls' milkshare and my hair is ready to go. Thank you!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by hollygolightly Doesn't Stop Frizz
I have curly hair. This didn't stop the frizz at all. Also it got a 4 rating from the EWG Skin Deep database. I'm trying to stick with products that get a 0-3 rating.

Thanks so much for making a great natural product for curly haired women and men. It stands up to the strength of other products, and I feel good about both buying this product and using it on my hair because of the great ingredients.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NIBsmf3 Works well and smells great
I have been using Coconut Soft Curls along with the coconut shampoo and conditioner for a few months now. I have been trying to use up some older products, so I have been alternating pretty much every other day with my DE products and the older products. However, even without using the DE products every day, my hair is noticeably softer, shinier, and less frizzy! And it smells fabulous! The soft curls cream works well by itself but works better in conjunction with another styling product. I use a hair spray meant for curly hair after working in the cream. Without the hair spray, I find that my hair is a bit frizzier (yet not out of control frizzy by any means). The soft curls cream leaves my curls soft yet defined. Even when I use other brands' shampoos and confditioners with the soft curls cream, it works nicely. The only product I know of that is similar to this cream is Beyond the Zone's Noodle Head cream, which is what I have been using for a while... both are white creams that dry clear in your hair. I think the soft curls cream has 3 advantages over the Noodle Head cream: 1) it's all natural (Noodle Head is made with synthetic wax and chemicals and whatnot), 2) it smells better, and 3) it dissolves more clear in my hair (the Noodle Head often leaves behind white streaks in my hair if I don't carefully comb it through my hair). My only complaint would be the cost, but it does seem that a little bit goes a long way with the cream. Overall, I'm very pleased with my DE regimine of the coconut shampoo, conditioner, and soft curls cream. I plan to stick with it indefinitely!
