Queen Helene Royal Curl, Curl Shaping Cream Review

Again, the pics arent the best, but im working with what I got!

Yes, I jumped on the bandwagon and bought Queen Helene Royal Curls Curl Shaping Cream after I read Baby Big Hair's review here and BBB here So I basically bought this product because I loved the results I saw from their review. Especially when they both mentioned that it weighed down their daughter's hair and didn't cause a lot of shrinkage. When putting products in Leelee's hair to be worn out thats all I experience - major shrinkage! I was hoping this product would do the same for us.

So let me begin by saying I went on the Queen Helene website to look for where I can find the product. It said a local store had it in stock but when I called they told me that was incorrect, but they would be happy to do a special order. A week went by and they notified me. When I went into the store I found out they only ordered one..I was hoping it would be a whole order but I guess not. It was okay though, they also didnt have a price for it and I remember it going for $7.99 and they told me "how bout 6.99?" Awesome! Can't be that for a 15oz!
First time using this I did not do it on clean hair. I took out a style and put the curl cream in. I LOVED it! I'm going to try my best to explain something here. When Leelee wears down and out hair she has two kinds depending on what products were used. One type is where her hair shrinks up and the curls are all clumped together and pretty uniform. They will hardly budge because they are so together. Another (which I love and is my favorite) is where her hair is all bouncy and curls are so defined. I can brush my fingers through her hair and its just so fluffy and bouncy. They shrink as well but after awhile, not instantly. I hope I made sense! This is what that cream did, it made her hair so fluffy I seriously love it! It still shrank her hair and didnt weigh it down too much but I think its because her hair is really fine and not much length yet. The only thing about it is that I wasn't too fond of the smell. It was too much for me. It smells good, but overpowering to my nose. Also, I realized that the ingredients aren't all natural, there were ingredients I couldn't pronounce but whatever. I will def be trying this product out again on clean hair and figuring out the best way it will work for us. I'm a little disappointed that the store doesn't care their line either but its ok I don't need to be spending anymore money! I will keep updating on how this works for us.
