The Jane Carter Solution Curl Defining Cream

Beloved readers, this was my go-to curl cream for several months. (Why do I constantly try new products? I’m hopelessly curious.)

My Experience

It spreads quickly, disappears into hair immediately, and leaves it shiny and defined. I was utterly shocked at how well my coily, curly, dense hair (virgin 3c/4a) was gorgeously defined, soft, and had noticeable added shine.

This can also be found in a larger container with a pump–GLORIOUS. It is on the pricey side, but lasts quite a while as ” a little dab will do.”

I had to clarify every two weeks like clockwork while using this as my sole styling product.

  • Texture

This product has the same scent, color, feel, and consistency of Elmer’s glue. (There, I said it.)

Please note: This curl cream may be too heavy for fine-haired ladies.


This curl cream adds soft, touchable shine and definition to curls and coils. Clarify regularly (OR ELSE!) and enjoy a great hair day–everyday.
