My Review
I bought the curl control defining pudding because I was looking for a product to create more definition and hold for my twist-outs.  The first time I used it, I completely ignored the directions and used it on dry hair that had been stretched after a braid-out. I applied the pudding to my hair, sealed with a homemade mix of coconut oil and shea butter, and did a flat twist-out following the instructions here.  I may have been a little heavy handed with the product because my hair looked a little wet as I set it (it is water based).  The next morning, my hair felt really soft but did not have the definition I wanted and was a major frizz ball by noon.  

The next time I used the product, I stuck pretty close to the directions on the package. I applied the pudding to wet, freshly washed and conditioned hair. I'm sure I used less product than my first go 'round because products always seem to spread better on wet hair. I still topped the pudding with my shea butter/coconut oil mix, but instead of flat-twisting I set my hair in 4 big twists and let it air dry over night.  Surprisingly, my hair turned out very moist and defined, even though my twists were pretty big.  I smoothed my hair up into a well-defined curly puff, and didn't experience any frizz even as I separated pieces of hair to make the puff look more full.  Now usually after wearing a puff, my hair is super tangled and I have single-strand knots galore so I usually have to wash my hair before I can style it again.  After using this product, I was able to easily comb out my puff and do a braid out on dry hair with little to no hair loss!

I had great results using it on wet hair and I can't wait to try it on a wet flat twist-out.  I prefer to style my hair while it is dry because with wet styling my hair usually isn't completely dry by the time I wake up in the morning, so will try to use the pudding again on dry hair making sure that I use only a small amount so hopefully I get better results.  Overall, I'm happy I purchased this product!
