Price: depending on where you purchase the most expensive I have seen it was for $46 on Amazon, but I have also seen it as low as $11.99. I suggest going to either or to find a good price if you don't mind purchasing it online.
Rating: 4/5; hair needs to be sopping wet and moisturized and sealed so you can get the shiny curls and coils as promised. The volume is reduction was there I guess, but I have a lot of fine dense hair so I guess that's why I'm always fluffing my hair whenever I use this product. 

Okay well I was rummaging through my hair box...okay one of my many hair boxes, and was looking for an alternative for something besides the hair pudding. Not that I fell out of love with it, oh  heavens no! I just wanted another alternative, and wanted something that wouldn't take as long to dry on days I wanted to wear my hair out (hey I haven't had the time to do my twists life won this go around lol). So, I ran across this product  thought shoot what's the harm in it with the exception of it make my hair a big ol' helmet.  Well I will say I am not upset my overall results, but I will say I will NEVER use this product on hair that has not been moisturized and sealed. In this vlog (hehe I'm goofy so sue me) you can see that it's a little dry looking, but any other time I moisturize with SheaMoisture hair milk and seal with either sweet almond oil or castor oil. Which usually leaves my hair with a nice sheen before even applying my styling product. I promise I will give a better review, but I wanted to do it since today was my 3rd day using the product. I co-washed with HETT (Totally Twisted, which was my first time using this product), applied the Curl Wise while my hair was sopping wet and then called myself drying it with a t-shirt (like I've been doing this week). Well I did curly girl no-no, touched it while it was still wet even while filming the video. My hair is still damp in sections, but I did want to at least share my experience even with frizzy not so smooth hair. Yup the facial expressions are priceless, but what can I say sometimes I'm animated. :-) I need to get started on my papers, but I'm now sleepy again. (darn it! *snaps fingers*) *Oh btw I honestly am confused about my hair type, but I will say that I am primarily a 4a with some sections being 4b and 3c (my crown zig zags and spirals in all kinds of directions). In any other reviews for products  I will at least try to show you what my hair looks like soaking wet.*
Hope it helps! I will be posting the less expensive product in my store listed in the tab "Let's Go Shopping!"
