Biotera Curl Creme: Love it or Hate it?

So a few days ago I walked into Sally's Beauty Supply with the sole purpose of buying a certain product:
Biotera Curl Creme!!
Though I've only half way tried the product [I slapped some on the night I bought it and had decent results] I was rather impressed with the resulting feel.

So here's the questiong I've been dying to ask all of my Curl Girls out there...
Love it or Hate it?
3Cii high porosity, BSL (when straight).
Hair tends to clump at the bottom and be puffy at roots.
---
Condish: Suave Coconut
Styling Products: Vatika Oil, Sunsilk Captivating Curls Mousse, Garnier Fructis Curl Gel

    I don't like it. For me, it causes frizz.

    Hate it. One of the few products I tried once and then returned. I hated the smell. I hated the way it made my hair look (limp, soft, blah). Yuck. :tongue2:

    I didn't see any difference in my hair with or without it. Not worth the smell. I am still interested in eventually trying the gel.

    It didn't do much for me and I hated the smell so much that halfway through the day I had to wash it out.

    My hair didn't like this much either, ok results immediately after styling but as the day progresses the curls really lose definition and frizz out a lot. :thumbdown:

    I don't know if it's "a million" times cheaper but I'm sure it's better than Bioterra which costs about $6 for 8oz. Even with Shipping from U.K Boots is still a bargain at $13 for the tub!

    I love it! However, I do have to qualify that by saying I use it with a little [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]Curl Keeper[/buylink] over the top and then a little gel over the top of that. However, with this combo I'm having the best hair I've had since I used to use Dove Defining Texture Cream (since discontinued).
    I have 3A hair. I've discovered Jessicurl shampoo and Too Shea conditioner and I'm thrilled! Long-time LA Looks sport gel user.

    I thought it was just ok...actually it didn't do anything good for my hair :)

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.
