This product has a strong fake cinnamon+warm vanilla scent to it, that I find to be too much. It is a heavy styling cream, yet it did not provide curl elongation, but instead caused my curls to shrink up more than usual. You have to really work this product into your hair, in order to get it to really absorb completely into the hair. It leaves a greasy residue on top my curls, but is not actually very moisturizing. And, the moisture that it does provide is not long-lasting at all.
I have tried many products from CURLS' professional line, only to end up disappointed, over and over again. Their products are too strongly scented, and really aren't very moisturizing at all. They simply leave my curls greasy with this weighed down look, and they shrink up my curls alot too.

It worked well the first time around but when I tried it a second time my hair was dry and greasy. I don't like all of the ingredients either. Will not try again.

It is very thick and rich. And, you have to really work this product into your hair strands, as it doesn't readily absorb quickly into the hair. It defines and defrizzes my curls, and it gives a medium curl hold. But it does shrink up your curls after they have dried. Even though this product weighs down my hair, it does nothing for elongating my curls at all. Plus it has this fake warm vanilla scent that I definitely wish they would get rid of.
I think this product is way overpriced for the amount you get, plus I did not find anything truly special about this product anyways.

White film all over. Dry. Waxy. For almost $20 THIS WAS BEYOND DISAPPOINTING! Nice smell though.

How I used it? Moisturizing styling cream.
Purchased in the Transitioning kit. Made my hair soft for only 2 hours, then became dry again. My permed ends were dry and brittle. I ended up using my unrefined Shea butter to keep my ends from getting dry and brittle ( that's when I discovered a use for my Shea butter).
Would I buy this again? No.

Well there's not much to say about this product. It did define my curls, but left my hair really dry. So i had to use there champagne an caviar curl elixir an cashmere curls jelly. So that made my hair shiny and my hair doesn't look dry anymore so. Id use this again but i have to use there other products with it.

I did not like this product at all. a friend gave it to me because it did not work for her. I used it with a twist out. I have 3c/4a hair. I let it air dry over night and it caused my twist to become very limp. It was like my hair was straightening out. My hair was also dry after use and my hair is always oily. I am so glad someone gave this to me and did not waste my money.

This is my favorite in the CURLS line.
They market this product for type 4 hair but as a 3b/c who has no time for extra conditioning steps this is my favorite product. I wash with Shea Moisture Organic Shea Butter Curl & Shine Shampoo Coconut & Hibiscus which is moisturizing enough that I don't need to condition in the shower. I gently de-tangle in the shower with the Goody QUIK STYLE Detangling Shower Comb and gently rinse and soak. I then step out of the shower and section my hair four ways and apply product to wet hair and gently work through concentrating on the hair and ends trying to avoid the scalp. Then I scrunch and shape as I do the sections and let air dry or dry with a diffuser.
I don't like crunchy hair and this has some hold but does not get crunchy. I then sleep on my satin case and it lasts 4-6 days with minimal spritzing to hydrate. I have found that my hair does not like re-hydration sprays with a lot of glycerine.
I love this and think it is the best product in the whole line. I hope they never change the formula.

I have mainly 4a, some 3c dense hair that resides in very humid weather. I've been using this product on my hair on a weekly basis for over a year and consistently get excellent results when I use it on wet hair. I use this on freshly washed hair and on top of a leave-in that has essential oils while and braid. My hair is always soft, moisturized, and beautifully fragrant once it has dried. I get the best results from using it that way. Rarely (when the dew point and humidity are average to low) I will use this to re-moisturize on dry hair and twist with beautiful results.

This product was ok. It was too thick and greasy for my hair. I think this product is way better for someone who have hair in the 4a-4b range. It does define your hair really well and great for two strand twist.

Nice smell but I needed something more buttery.

I love this stuff! I fully intend to keep Curls Whipped Cream as a part of my hair regimen. This makes my hair really soft, my curls are extremely defined, and the smell is to die for! I love the fact that the cream is extremely thick, (for humor I turn the jar upside down and shake it vigorously just to see if it'll fall out--it doesn't!) so I only need to use a little bit. When I first purchased this, I applied it to my wet hair after washing it (like the directions stated) and once it dried, I can't really say anything changed. So next time after washing my hair, I waited until my hair was fully dry, and THEN I noticed how well this product worked for my hair. I moisturize my hair with this every few days and seal it in with castor oil. I get compliments/questions for co-workers and strangers about whether or not I have a texturizer for my afro, but I always tell them that I do not, this is my natural hair. I feel I only have Curls Whipped Cream to thank for that. My avatar's pic with my afro is thanks to this cream!

This was very hydrating for my thirsty hair.
Like it says it has no hold - so I had to use eco styler on top to give a bit of hold.
As for smell, it didn't bother me at all.
The only downfall I found, was that when I applied it, it left white streaks in my hair - not sure if I put too much in tho & the white streaks did disappear when my hair dried.
I only tried this today so not sure of long term use or post 1st day hair so can't comment.

This product did not work for my hair: after 5 minutes, my hair was VERY dry.

This product does nothing for my hair. I gave it 2 curls b/c it smelled pleasant.
Posted by indygodawg (Type 4a) on 02/22/2011
This smells really good, but did nothing at all for my hair. I used it for two strand twists and it definitely has no hold. My two strand twists don't last as long, even when I use a pomade along with it, and my twist outs don't look good. I have about 3.5 inches of hair though; may work better on longer hair.

This product smells great! That is the one of they only advantages. I used it to twist my hair and I wasn't impressed. My hair felt more coated than moisturized and continued to feel dry over the next few days. It seemed a bit too heavy for my hair.

I have found another HG product!!!!!! I really liked the CURLS Milkshake but the Whipped Cream takes the cake! It’s smooth, soft and rich texture spreads evenly on my hair. It has moisturized my dry and thirst ends. It smells absolutely divine as well. I use it for twist-outs with KCCC layered lightly on the top and the two play very nicely together. My twist outs are soft, bouncy and happy.

This is a staple product for my 4a hair this winter. I have read many reviews about it being drying. I apply a moisturizer underneath and treat this as a styler. It keeps my protective twisted styles neat and frizz free for a week to ten days. Great product!
Posted by yrh11 (Type 4a) on 10/16/2010
Great product. It has great hold. The vanilla smell is heavenly. The only reason why I did not rate it 5 stars is because to me, this product does not give me shine.My hair was dull after a day or so. Other than that, it would have been a staple.

Love it on my hair!! It's perfect alternative to gel for me, and it keeps my curls in perfect shape during high humidity conditions. Still can't get second day hair!! Love the Whipped Cream when I wear my hair down and want the same definition as I do with regular hair gel.
Posted by tfranklin4 (Type 4a) on 05/05/2010
Smells good, but didn't seem to add any moisture to my hair. I actually felt that my hair was more dry after using it. I still have this product in my bathroom drawer because I never used it again.

Hated it!..reminds me of lard..I passed it on to a friend and she hated it too...
Posted by MissChris10 (Type 4a) on 10/29/2009
This product smells great! That is the reason why I give it 2 curls. Besides the smell, I found curls whipped cream to be to heavy for my 4a/3c hair. I used it my wet hair to do a twist-out. It made my hair feel greasy and sticky and my twist out began to look slightly matted after two days.
Posted by caramelsensation (Type 4a) on 09/12/2009
the worst cream i ever used.it dries out my hair making it really hard to comb.
Posted by TheDivineCommand (Type 3a) on 04/22/2009
I LOVE this product. I had been using Infusium leave in conditioner for years and years. It was the only thing that worked decently. When I found NC.com, I found this product and decided to give it a try. My curls are luscious, soft and bouncy now. I get second-day hair too! I put it my hair when it's soaking wet and use a "curls like us" cloth to soak up the moisture. I rarely have bad hair days anymore. Love it!!
Posted by CoilyDelta27 (Type 4a) on 02/01/2009
Their Cleansing Cream and Coconut Sublime are the best products. This however, was very drying and just sat on top of my hair. It also left buildup. Not a fan.

MY HAIR TYPE IS 3C ! I LOVE PRODUCT, BUT I ONLY USE WHEN MY HAIR IS ALMOST DRY ! IT DOSEN'T LET MY CURLS SET WELL, IF MY HAIR IS STILL SOPPING WET ! I LOVE THE SMELL ! VANILLA ! SURE BEAT REGULAR HAIR GREASE !

As a curly girl who lives in the desert, it's important to use a product that provides the right amount of moisture and lustre for my curls and this product does the trick! (The great vanilla smell is an added plus!)

This thick rich styling cream works very well at hydrating and defining aturally dry thirsty curls, like I have. Now,I don't use this product all year round because when the weather is hot this product would actually weigh down my hair too much. As, during the Summertime, where I live down South the humidity and temps both be around 100 on a daily basis. So, this is why, I prefer to use this product mainly during the Late Fall & Winter Seasons. As, when the weather really starts to cool off, I find this productt absolutely perfect for me to use in my hair then.

Simply put: I love it. I get great, soft defined, lustrous curls AND second day hair- which is an incredible feat. Smells great too. It is my favorite styler, second to Fantasia IC clear gel ( I use when I am broke or waiting on my curls shipment to come in).
