    This product is not for me. It didn't leave my hair soft or moisturized. But a little dry and fizzy. I tried it both on damped and dried hair needless to say either provided great result.

    This product really doesn't do much for my curls at all. It's not very moisturizing, has basically no slip to it, it provides light curl definition only, does nothing for frizz control, and it happens to take a long time to fully absorb into my hair as well. After it finishes being absorbed, it leaves my hair with some type of film on it.

    This product is not a good styler and neither would I recommend using it as a leave in either.

    I have Type 3B curls, that are fine-to-medium textured. Instead of this product working in my hair as a styler it worked more as a leave in conditioner. I expected more from this product and got way less.

    It also has a fake type of vanilla scent to it, which I which they could have left out. Why make your products to be heavily scented? Not everyone is a fan of such, as I certainly am not.

    Provides a soft to medium hold when under another CURLS styler. Alone, it does not provide enough moisture or hold for me.

    I like it! #1 it smells great. #2 A little goes a long way. #3 Moisturizing. #Keeps frizz away. (I found it to be heavy and wax like when I used too much.)

    Yes it is expensive BUT a little goes a long way. One use lasts a few days which is nice. Keeps my hair soft, frizz free, and shiny. Also, I like using it when I know I am going swimming because I know my hair will be coated enough to somewhat combat chlorine.

    Oh! So...I found that its not one of the rinse and repeat type of products like KKKT or Deva Curl/Care One Condition. It leaves my hair feeling a little coated with a rinse and I am not fan of putting product on coated hair...never know how much or little I need. Ha! So, I No-poo it out.

    4 Stars because it is pricey and sometimes I don't want to have to no-poo just to put more in. I'd like it more if it rinsed out with little residue. Otherwise great product...may buy it again.

    This is one of those products that I thought i would love. So I bought the product but it didn't react well with my favorite hair gel, which is aloe vera gel; i thought everything mixed well with aloe vera gel. I put the hair milk under my aloe vera gel and it was fine, then my hair dried and when I fluffed it i had this white film on my hair. When I touched my hair i could see like these white particles flowing away in the air. Plus the bottle is tiny for the price. The consistency of the product is not heavy at all so you have to use a good amount. Now, my hair is not thick nor big by any means and even I had to use a lot in only two uses. I guess is a good thing i don't like it. I will be using the rest of the product i have left as a refresher but I definitely wont be buying it again.

    I love this stuff, and it has a soft scent. When used, it works well for me with castor oil on the ends. That price is like whoaaaa! I retwist every night, so this stuff goes fast. I may need to repurchase it in a larger bottle.

    I love this stuff but not the price, bought a bottle and it didn't seem full. I love this for my hair and was looking for something without glycerin so this fit the bill. I only use a small amount on a daily or every other day for moisturizing so I'm hoping that it will last for a good while. I have fine hair so I'm not a fan of gels. I think that I have found my product, hate that I wasted money on several products that did nothing for my hair type. Thanks to Curls biz.

    It's pretty good stuff, not going to lie. I provides moisture and frizz control without being too heavy. Only downside is the price. Seriously who is going to pay $18 plus shipping for only 8 oz. I love the stuff but it's simply to pricey to be used as a daily product. ( I won a free bottle in a contest)

    I actually won a bottle of this from the company and loved it from first squirt. It smells divine! It's very lightweight, but it still able to do the job and moisturizes my hair immensely. The jury is still out on whether I will buy it when it runs out. It costs a LOT.

    I love the product so I'll start with the bad....WHY IS IT $18 for 8oz?????!!!! That is the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5!!! I just don't get why 'CURLS' is so expensive...for such small bottles. VERY FRUSTERATING!!
    Now onto the good:

    Love the smell, love the thick consistency & I love the slip it gives my hair. I use it as a leave-in/detangler, used underneath my gel/curl cream. It melts into my hair like butter. Detangles with ease in combination with a little water and my Denman! It performs as described on the bottle. Don't expect hold because you're not going to get any.

    When I first tried Curls Milkshake, it was rainy and humid that week. In those conditions it did seem to soften my relentlessly dry hair, but I'm transitioning and I think it takes a little heavier of a moisturizer to suite my natural coils. I think the weather helped keep my hair feeling softer/more moisturized, because the Curls Milkshake didn't seem to perform that well when the rain cleared up. My hair was also pretty frizzy during that time, so it definitely didn't work for me as frizz-control. I want a soft, defined hold, but I think I needed a heavier product because my coils don't easily get defrizzed or defined. It might be a good leave-in/ de-tangler for some, but I don't think this product is for me.

    This was ok as a 2nd day product, or just as a moisturizer, but it was not amazing. There are lots of products with the same purpose as this that simply work a lot better, such as Curl Junkie CCCC Lite. It did make my hair soft and was a little curl enchancing, but I found the smell too artificial amd strong. The worst part about this is that with many gels it will form nasty white clumps. The whole CURLS line is pretty disappointing, I am sorry to say.

    I LOVE this! I use it on wet hair after curls moisturizer (like the bottle says) as well as some other products. On dry hair I first apply curls moisturizer and then this. Best. Hair. Ever. I actually got complimented by 7, yes 7 people the first time I used it. It also gives me amazing 2nd, 3rd, and 4th day hair. Ive never even tried to go longer. It doesn't feel producty or sticky or crunchy at all and it smells like cake batter. Its not strong smelling but somehow it does overtake the smells of other products (including ACV, yay!) and leaves my hair smelling yummy all day. So not only do I get complemented on the look and feel of my hair, but also the smell. HG!!!

    I absolutely LOVE this product. It does a great job of redefining my curls. I use it as a leave in and I also mix a little with water in the morning to give it a little life to my hair. I have two complaints about the product: a) price b) it does not help at all with frizz which is a little disappointing. Maybe it will work better by layering the products.

    I am a 4a/3c and I use Curls Milkshake as a leave-in moisturizer after washing & conditionioning my hair. I put it on under EcoStyler gel. Although it's marketed as a curl lotion for finer-textured hair, for me it works best as a leave-in & I love it! It keeps my hair much more moisturized than most other leave-ins I've tried save KCKT, but I much prefer the consistency and the scent of the Milkshake. It also layers very well with my Ecostyler. It is pricey, but I don-t use more than a quarter-sized amount each time (My hair is short). I would recommend it! I only gave 4 curls because of the price, because it can't be bought in stores and because I don't know how well it really works as a styler.

    I love this!
    The scent is just-enough. It doesn't give me any hold, but I don't mind because I only use it after washing & conditioning my hair. I part my hair into 4 sections, then use about a quarter-sized amount of the CURLS Milkshake per section and comb it through. Then I seal with oil. After I twist my hair with Kinky Curly Knot Today & Curling Custard, my twist-outs ALWAYS come out dope! My hair feels soft & moisturized for days after I wash & style, a point which took me a long time to get to! Also, the bottle is pricey, but because I use so little at a time, it's OK with me. I used like 1/3 of the bottle the first time, then figured out that less is definitely more. I will repurchase because I've tried many other moisturizers and this is my fave thus far :-)

    I enjoy the consistency of the product and use it to refresh my twist-outs. It is very moisturizing and spreads evenly. It does not smell as yummy as other CURLS products but it is still nice. I am not willing to repurchase because I feel there are comparable products at a lower price point that provide similar results.

    WoW! This is a fabulous detangler (and it smells yummy)! It’s seriously on par with my beloved Kinky Curly Knot Today. Sheds and tangles slipped right out. It could be a good rival of my KCKT but it has some flaws. 1st it loses a ½ curl because it is marketed as a styler/curl lotion/curl cream when it should be a detangler or leave-in conditioner. There are no holding ingredients in it whatsoever. 2nd, it loses a ½ curl for the price. $18 for an 8oz bottle and it’s terribly difficult to find this stuff in brick and mortar locations. 3rd, it loses a full curl for the amount of product I had to use. I have a ton of dense tight 3c/4a hair and I used almost half the bottle in one setting.

    Thought this would be a styler but didn't work for me. I got too much frizz, no curl definition. But did give softness. Being a 3a, 2b, I think I need more help with curl definition and hold.

    I have extremely damaged ends that don't seem to curl after years of straightening and dyeing. This product definitely made my hair manageable and soft. It is not intended as a styling product for hold. I don't even use it for frizz but it sure helps those damaged ends curl and seem lees damaged. One note if you have damaged thick coarse wavy hair mix with a little Gel les c (jealousy) but not before using Quenched CURLS Moisturizer. Your hair will be manageable and oh so soft.

    Easy to apply. Smells very faint of vanilla. This is my staple under gel. Gel dries without crunch.
    My son who has much shorter hair also uses it and Milkshake defines his curls and leaves them soft.

    I just received my first order of Curls Milkshake and love it. I use it first then use curling custard, this cocktail is the best combo I've ever used on my hair.

    Curls changed the formula on Milkshake in late summer 2008. Bad move. I LOVED the original product - it did wonders for my hair. Unfortunately, the new formula is AWFUL. It is very producty, weighs my hair down, and makes my curls go flat. My hair does not absorb it at all, so it is not moisturizing. In fact, my hair became drier using this. My milkshake is going in the trash. Very disappointing!

    Very "producty". Dried out my hair. Will not repurchase.

    This product was recommended to me by my stylist and I really wanted it to work for my hair. It worked fine on some of my hair but caused the drier parts to feel even drier and straw-like. I think it may have something to do with the coconut oil as other products containing coconut oil have had the same affect on my hair in the past.

    Lots of spider weby frizz. Encouraged curls nicely but too much frizz. Also, felt producty instead of just soft.

    This is some GREAT stuff! I've tried so many products. Recently I tried Frederick Fekkai glossing cream and Mixed Chicks leave-in but they were both a bit heavy. Curls Milkshake has the perfect consistency for me. Milkshake works great on my wet and dry hair. The other two products are better suited for wet only. The scentsational SCENT is overwhelmingly deliciously smelling. Yummy! This product will always be in my possession.

    I used this on my 3c son as well as myself. I use it primarily as a light curl definer and leave-in moisturizer.

    I use this product as a styling product versus using it as a leave-in moisturizer/conditioner in my hair. It never weighs down my hair and it always leaves my hair looking soft.

    Also, I do like to layer Curls Euphoria Elixir over Curls Milkshake for added shine and frizz protectionwhen necessary. And, I never use Curls Milkshake without prepping my hair first with Curls Quenched.

    I've used this as a leave-in conditioner and like it. I think it supposed to have some styling properties, also, but it didn't work for me as a styler.
