Product Review: Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream




Let's keep this review short and sweet. A couple Sundays ago, I told you all I wanted to try this product. That following Monday, I went out and bought it and gave it a try. I applied it to my hair in sections and set my hair in braids over night. The product gave me a nicely defined braid out the next day.

Pros:
- It smells great! (Like smarties or something.)
- Nice, light and creamy consistency
- Gave a nice hold without my hair feeling crunchy

Cons:
- While it did give my hair a nice hold that wasn't crunchy, it made my hair feel a lil "weird". I don't know how to explain it. And I had the feeling that with continued use, it would build up on my hair.
- Not the most natural of ingredients: this isn't always a deal breaker for me but this time around it really felt synthetic

So, I'm not going to down this product. I simply don't like or dislike it. Maybe it will work better for other people's hair which is why I gave it away. No luv lost over here though. :D

yep, that was my experience as well. the product left my hair feeling, kinda, well, hmm, can't quite find the words, perhaps weird will have to do. and i definitely agree that product build-up would have been unavoidable.

i was curious about these products but for my locs.. if it gave u a weird feeling and that it would prob build up, i'm sure that's likely of the loc products!

WOW! I just bought this product 2 days ago. I live in Dallas, where the heat was 110 today. My curls held up, where on past days, it frizzed up. I received the most compliments on my hair being curlier. I'd washed it and braided it. My hair is thick, and very soft. One of my co-workers had to feel and she thought bout trying it. My hair didn't feel weird at all. With Kinky Curl, I tried a few times, and that was 17 bucks down the drain--I couldn't wait to wash it out. This on the other hand, I have had to use that much. I liked the shampoo too.

I used this while transitioning and didn't like it on my twist outs...tried it again after my BC and it was nice and soft after the 1st day but when i went to add moisture w/ TW curl sealer it created a residue. I used it again w/ Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 and same results so I will be giving it away to my sister. She has courser hair (mine is 3c/4a)

I had a pretty good experience. My hair is a 4a too. It keeps my hair frizz free and nice and soft.I tried the curl sealer too and i had pretty good results. I like using the same brand of product b/c they usually work well together. So I plan on using this brand as my main until i find something better.
