Customer Reviews:

Great for defining curls

I absolutely love 4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream! It does an amazing job at defining my curls and giving them a natural bounce. My hair looks more voluminous and the curls stay intact throughout the day. Highly recommend!

Leaves hair feeling greasy

I was really disappointed with 4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream. It made my hair feel excessively greasy and weighed it down. Even after trying different amounts, my hair still looked oily and lacked volume. Not suitable for my hair type.

Hydrates and nourishes curls

4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream is a game changer for my dry and frizzy curls. It provides intense hydration and nourishment, making my hair feel soft and manageable. My curls are more defined and less prone to frizz. Love this product!

Decent curl definition but not long-lasting

The 4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream gives my curls a decent definition initially, but it doesn't hold up well throughout the day. By the afternoon, my curls start to lose their shape and become frizzy. It's an average product for me.

Caused scalp irritation

Unfortunately, using 4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream resulted in scalp irritation for me. It made my scalp itchy and uncomfortable, even though I applied it sparingly. I had to discontinue using it due to this issue.

Doesn't work well on fine hair

I have fine hair and 4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream didn't work well for me. It made my hair feel heavy and weighed down, causing my curls to look limp and lifeless. It may be more suitable for thicker hair types.

Product Summary:

The 4U by Tia Leave-In Curl Cream provides a light hold, enhancing curls with a subtle, refreshing scent. Ideal for achieving soft, hydrated, and bouncy curls, it effectively combats frizz, ensuring a natural look. This cream is particularly effective in defining curls without leaving behind stickiness or crunchiness. With a perfectly balanced texture, it's suitable for a variety of curl types.

Priced between $10 and $20, the cream is tailored for natural hair, offering softness, shine, and hydration that can last for about a week. It enhances natural curl patterns while reducing frizz or crunchiness, making it effective for various curly hair types. However, the curl definition it provides may not be very long-lasting, and more frequent hair washing might be needed compared to other leave-in products. Be cautious not to over-apply, as this could result in hair looking and feeling greasy and heavy.
