    A little sticky going on but worth it!

    Posted by Malika D. on Aug 17th 2018

    The difference this custard makes is dramatic. I don't like how sticky it is when you first put it on, but it quickly starts to dry without drying out, staying soft while holding the curl - amazing!

    Formula Changed

    Posted by Tayler J. on Mar 5th 2018

    I used to LOVE this product. They stopped carrying it at my local CVS awhile ago and I finally decided to order online and am disappointed to see that the formula now includes almond which dries out my hair. This custard used to make my hair comb out super easily the next day, but now it just strips out all the oils and makes it EXTREMELY dry. I had to run out and buy a detangler it was so difficult to comb. I really wish I hadn't bought two. For reference, I have 3c curls.

    Love for Tight Twist

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 6th 2018

    I have only used this product for twisting my hair and then pin curling each twist. I use it on my dry hair. Resulting twists are nice and tight and slightly heavier than when I use the Coconut Monoi Curl Defining Gelee, which I also love. Honey Curl Forming Custard does not flake or leave the hair with a crackling sound. Once I left my twist / pin curl set in for two days. I was able to then spike some of my twists to create a slightly different look, and because it set for a couple of days, the style lasted longer. So this is great over night or if set for a couple of days after applying to dry hair. I have not used this on my hair when my hair is wet, so I am not able to provide feedback on performance on wet hair.
