Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves™ Frizz Control Hair Cream -- 4 fl oz
sticky, does not work
This product is sticky, even when using a small amount, and it does not work to control frizz, even when using a large amount. I have not been able to find a product yet, conventional or otherwise, that will control my frizziness in humid weather, but it certainly isn't this one.

Used it to decrease frizz wearing my hair curly
And it worked well! I've learned that "straightening" products can be great for de-frizzing naturally curly hair. (If you are familiar with the hair-typing systems, my hair is medium-dense and 3b with some c, long and layered).
I noticed when squeezing a little out of the tube before washing my hair that the consistency is more of a gel, or creme-gel, than a cream (I expect creams to be so rich and moisturizing that leaving in conditioner is unnecessary), but this acts more like a gel. The hold is strong and would cause crispy, stringy curls if I did not leave some conditioner in. So I do that, then smooth in some of this frizz control stuff, blot/scrunch, and air-dry or dry with the help of sitting in front of my space heater for as long as I can take it (in the summer, I'd just wash and go). I get shiny, clumpy curls that will last a couple days with minimal retouching. If it hadn't been more humid/warm than usual in my climate this winter, I think it would last even longer. Overall, works nicely at giving my curls the hold and moisture-lock they need to look the way I want them to. The smell is a bit strong-- artificial coconut suntan-lotion smell, but it fades a bunch after it dries. Really reasonable price for a product that works well for wearing your hair curly.
