Customer Reviews:

Great for taming frizz

This product is amazing at controlling frizz and keeping my curls defined all day long. I love how it leaves my hair feeling soft and manageable.

Doesn't live up to its promises

I had high hopes for this product, but unfortunately, it didn't do much to control the frizz in my curls. My hair still ended up looking frizzy and unruly after using it.

Long-lasting results

This frizz control cream works wonders on my curls. Not only does it keep my hair frizz-free throughout the day, but the effects also last even after sleeping on it. I wake up with beautiful, defined curls every morning.

Moderate frizz control

I have mixed feelings about this product. While it does help reduce frizz to some extent, it doesn't fully eliminate it. It's average in terms of performance and doesn't stand out among other frizz control creams I've tried.

Leaves residue in hair

One downside of this frizz control cream is that it tends to leave a sticky residue in my hair. It feels heavy and greasy, making my curls look weighed down. I had to wash my hair more frequently to get rid of the build-up.

Decent frizz control, but not outstanding

This product provides some frizz control, but it's not the best I've used. It helps to a certain extent, but I still need to use additional products or styling techniques to achieve the desired results. It's just okay, nothing exceptional.

Product Summary:

The Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Frizz Control Cream effectively tames and holds natural curls, enhancing softness, definition, moisture, and shape with a long-lasting hold. It features a strong but not overpowering lemon scent, making hair smell pleasant all day. The non-greasy formula ensures hair remains fresh and light, without any added weight. Its wet texture allows for easy application without stickiness, yet it might leave a glue-like feeling on hands.
