Customer Reviews:

Excellent Control and Texture

I'm thoroughly impressed with the way this taffy provides control and texture to my hair. It's like having a professional stylist on hand, and it leaves my hair looking styled and polished, yet naturally voluminous.

Doesn't Fare Well in Humidity

I was really excited to try this product out, but I was disappointed to find that it doesn't hold up well in humid conditions. My normally well-defined curls fell flat after a few hours in a humid environment. It might work better in drier climates.

A Little Goes a Long Way

The whipped texture of this taffy is surprisingly lightweight and you only need a small amount to get the desired effect. This makes it a great value as the product lasts a long time. It's one of the best styling products I've used.

Neutral Scent, Could Be Improved

The taffy performs quite well in terms of hold and texture. However, I was hoping for a more appealing scent. It's not offensive, but it's also not particularly inviting or memorable. That said, if you're sensitive to strong fragrances, this might actually be a plus for you.

Can Be Sticky

I found that this taffy can be a bit sticky if you use too much. It's difficult to get it out of your hair without a thorough wash. A lighter hand while applying could solve the issue, but it's a bit of a learning curve.

Satisfactory for Short Hair

On my short hair, it performs satisfactorily. It provides hold and texture as it promises, but I wouldn't say it's exceptional. It might be different for other hair types or lengths, but for me, it's a decent product that does its job.

Product Summary:

The Kenra Platinum Whipped Taffy 20 is a notable hair styling product, especially known for its ability to provide a durable hold without leaving hair feeling crunchy or waxy. It's suitable for various hair types and styling needs.

While the product may have a strong scent when used excessively, Kenra products are generally praised for their fantastic smell. This feature adds to the overall pleasant user experience. The taffy is particularly effective on fine hair, adept at taming wispy gray hair and adding body and finish without a wet look. It excels in creating tousled, beachy waves and offers a matte, textured finish that adds volume and body to hair.

Although the Kenra Platinum Whipped Taffy 20 is priced higher than some other options, many users find the investment worthwhile due to its effectiveness. It is especially recommended for finishing styles for fine, thin hair. The product performs well on short and fine hair, keeping it tamed and frizz-free, making it a good option for curly hair as well.

The product's longevity is another key benefit, as only a small amount is needed for each use. It washes out easily, leaving no residue or buildup, which is important for maintaining hair health. However, users should be cautious about applying too much, as overuse can lead to hair feeling sticky and heavy. The taffy's versatility allows it to be used on both wet and dry hair, ensuring that hair remains styled without appearing overworked.
