Donna Marie Dream Curling Creme

Once again sorry for the sporadic posts! Applying to grad school is taking up a lot of my time. Hopefully, I’ll get in somewhere!! I recently got called for an interview upstate in Plattsburgh NY! If my essay is chosen I'll even get free tuition!!! Uber Excited! ^.~

Well, today I'm here with a product review... This particular company and product has a pretty loyal following... and I feel like I'm the only one who DOESN'T like their products.  So to balance out the good, here I am with the bad *gasp*. 

Donna Marie Dream Curling Creme

Smell: Vanilla Cake! Smells pretty good!

Texture: Smooth, thicker than pudding.

Moisture: I give this two thumbs down… Doesn’t beat Shea Moisture, Darcy’s, or Curl Junkie in that department… I even put a leave in under it sometimes!  The only thing that made it moisturizing was layering Curl Junkie Beauticurls Leave In and Donna Marie Hair Whip underneath it… That’s too much layering just to get moisture when I can use one product and get the same or an even more moisturizing effect. 

Application: It’s good. It’s sturdy so it doesn’t fling everywhere. 

Product Claims: Ok this prides itself on CURL DEFINITION and MOISTURE. But I only get the curl definition. It says it’s a “moisture packed and rich styling cream” designed to give “extra hold.” Again, I get the hold and definition but not enough moisture for me…  

Pros: The smell. It smells like Vanilla Cake! It does have great curl definition!
Cons: Not moisturizing enough! It might be too heavy for me but it leaves a film or a cast on my hair that I DO NOT LIKE! If you use too much you get CRUNCHY HAIR! Grrr… This is the same reason I DON’T LIKE GEL. Lol 

With that I give this…

Overall Rating: 2 ½ out of 5. 

For something that prides itself on moisture… this product doesn’t deliver in that department for me… I just don’t care for it. I’ve tried it on damp, freshly shampooed hair, with a leave in and without a leave in, and on dry and wet hair for twists… It just doesn’t deliver… Lol

You can try it… but I must say, this is the first product I’ve tried that I didn’t like. I mean, I’ve tried a lot. And sometimes you might not like a product for its intended use but find another use for it. I just can’t find one for this. I only gave it 2 ½ because of the smell and easy application.
Anyways! I won’t buy again! I just don’t like it…!
