though my first encounter with Shea Radiance Maximum Curl Defining Cream was in a haste move at the red circle boutique – i bought this after i was freaking out about hair products that would hold up in the obscene g.a. humidity – my purchase was definitely worth it. a curling cream that keeps my braid outs defined and supple was what i was looking for and that’s what i got with this.
Shea Radiance Maximum Curl Defining Cream is a leave-in styling conditioner that gives great curls without frizz and holds gently, resisting humidity for beautiful long-lasting curls. an added bonus of this curl cream is that it’s made with fairly-traded shea and 10% of profits go to the agricultural initiative for women in africa. “moisture retention, elasticity, sulfate-free, curl definition, excellent feel, frizz resistance. conditioning agents that provide soft cohesive curls and waves with flexible hold, frizz reduction, high humidity resistance and curl memory. for tighter curl patterns,this cream provides longer lasting curl definition for twist-outs and other techniques used to create curl definition.” yes, the description of this cream is a mouthful and would get any curly woman’s attention.
i love this stuff. i also love that it’s very affordable and a little goes a long way. as for any drawbacks, i’m not fond of the smell. it’s nothing to write home about which is a bit disappointing but such a non-factor overall. though it does flake on me after a week, the “good” thing about that is that it normally starts to break down on me when it’s time to wash my hair. i also can get around this by dampening my hair and reactivating the products which takes away most of the flaking. when Shea Radiance Maximum Curl Defining Cream is in rotation, i use this on my hair once a week with a good mist to reactivate. it’s works like cray to give me defined braid and twist outs so the name is not misleading at all. this cream does exactly what it says it will do for your curly hair. i love that. deliverable results.
