Darcy's new Curling Cream Gel

curlyserfcurlyserf Posts: 858Registered Users
Anyone else get a free bottle of this during the Black Friday sale?

I used it for the first time today. I did get some decent curl enhancement and no crunch, but lots of frizz, too. It has honey in it, so I guess it's not the best for a day with 93% humidity and freezing rain. I think I'll shelve it until we have a day with lower humidity and dews.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried it.

    I'm in Kansas City with it threatening to snow so I had better hold and shine than the first time I tried it. The first time I used it I had some frizz but I attributed that to using a leave-in w/ my usual oils and sealing. I didn't use a leave-in this time.

    I really like this but I think this may be too soft a hold for summer. She wants feedback so I plan to tell her my results.

    Did you use a leave-in?

    I used just a very small amount of the Ion Effective Care as a leave-in.

    The hold isn't too bad, but not as good as my BRHG or Alba Strong Hold Gel, of course. I used it late this afternoon shortly before going out to dinner. The curl is holding up well, but it's still very frizzy. I may try it again later in the week when the dew point is supposed to -1 here in Chicago! I'll definitely try it some more. It seems to have good potential.
