What is is: Taliah Waajid Curls, Waves, and Naturals Curly Curl Cream
Where to buy: Amazon.com
Overall rating: 7.5 / 10
The Taliah Waajid Curly Cream aims to give you curl definition without the crunch, but with the lasting hold that creams sometimes fall behind in providing. It is additionally formulated to give your strands lasting moisture thanks to the influx of natural extracts. Shea butter and sage are two of this product’s main ingredients, with no harsh chemicals including no parabens. This all comes packaged in a 6 oz. jar size as of now.
Initial & Lasting Impressions
From first glance at the jar size of the Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream, it does not appear to hold that much product – however I was gladly mistaken. This curling cream is pretty thick and is compressed into the container filling out to last you a generous number of uses. The consistency of the product is creamy yet almost a bit more solidified, which made it difficult at times to apply the product and required more water to be spritzed in order to help work the product throughout.
Upon letting it air dry, there is definitely noticeable “extreme curl definition” as it says on the packaging. It did not leave my hair crunchy or dry feeling. Unfortunately however, there was some white residue left – a quick fix by just applying light heat from a blow dryer or diffuser to speed up the drying process for the residue to disappear.
Pros & Cons
- Lasting hold without the crunch
- Product is quite thick, which caused some visible residue to be left
In conclusion, the Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream is an economical alternative for those looking for curl definition without the crunch but with lasting hold – often times hard to find in a cream. This product truly does as it says it will do, and has a sweet scent to compliment the results. Be sure not to be too heavy-handed with this cream though as it is of a heavier consistency. It can leave visible residue if not enough water is applied to absorb it. Nonetheless, I was thoroughly surprised and pleased with the results of this curl defining cream, and would definitely recommend giving it a try.
