A styling cream that provides beautiful definition and control for natural curls that last up to two times longer.
What it is formulated to do:
Curl Defining Styling Cream features extra conditioning properties and light hold to define and control curls with stronger curl patterns. Best suited for naturally curly, coily hair, it contains flexible resins to help create weather-proof curls that are resistant to harmful environmental aggressors. It is powered by extended curl memory technology featuring the patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), an optimized emollient and polymer blend and time-release conditioners, to repel humidity for superior frizz protection, provide residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition, and deliver touchable hold for long-lasting, resilient curls. Curls spring back to their perfect shape and stay beautiful, defined, and frizz-free up to two times longer.

This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
-Apply to clean, damp hair and evenly distribute.
-The total amount used will vary by hair density, length, and porosity, but start with a quarter-size amount and distribute evenly from root to tip.
-For best results, let hair air-dry or heat style using a diffuser.
-Hair should be mostly wet (but not sopping) when applying cream to ensure even distribution.
-Section hair and evenly apply through each section by raking through with fingers.
-To enhance curls, scrunch hair into a towel.
-To elongate curls, comb damp hair well before applying product. This will elongate your natural curl pattern. Do not scrunch.
-To shape curls, wrap them around your finger or pen to create definition, particularly framing the face.
-If your hair is frizz-prone, don’t touch or disrupt curls until they completely dry; in general air-drying is a best practice.
-To reactivate curls, apply No Frizz Weightless Spray to dry hair. This will reactivate the hold and conditioning of the styler.
-You can also add water to the cream, mix in hand, and apply to dry hair to reactivate curl pattern.
-To boost the level of hold, combine with Curl Styling Mousse. Cocktail the two together by layering them into hair.
