Alba Botanica™ Style Cream Soft Hold Fragrance Free -- 4 oz
I have curly hair and struggled for years to find a product for curly styling until I found this soft hold cream. This product helps hold and define my curls without looking "crunchy". It also has a very mild smell that completely disappears as soon as it is dry. I love that I can now get out of the shower and apply this product and essentially be done with my hair for the day.

best in winter
I have shoulder-length, lightweight, naturally curly hair (3B). It gets weighed down very easily. I've tried this product throughout all seasons (I live in Pennsylvania, so I experience them all!), and I like it best in winter. I find this product is gunky and heavy in summer, and leaves me looking greasy. But in winter, from time to time, I experience a period when my hair can't seem to get enough moisture from any amount of conditioner, leave-in, gel, whatever, and looks lanky, thin, and stringy...but that is where this product shines for me. A little dab all by itself (or under a small amount of the alba gel), usually does the trick and brings me back into balance. By balance, I mean, springy, soft, natural looking curls. I always make sure to have a tube of this around during the winter months.

Great for wavy hair
Love this product for my wavy hair. It keeps it from being frizzy and defines my waves, making them look great.

I got his for my son and myself as we both have curly hair. It left a waxy film and was stiff. Yuck! Will not buy again.

Good but prefer the gel
I have naturally curly hair that frizzes in humidity. I use a leave in conditioner and gel. Tried this with the conditioner, but prefer the gel. It's a good product and fragrance free, but hold isn't as strong as the gel.
