Schwarzkopf Extra Care Curl Flex Mousse & Creme

"Extra Care Curl Flex Mousse/Crème with thermal protection formula for extra strong hold and defined curls full of bounce and elasticity."

I have very thick, I guess you could call it 'island curl/wave' hair (I'm half pacific islander) so I love products that define my natural curl. I really loved the creme much more than the mousse. The mousse was drying made my hair knotty and hard to brush. I will definitely use the creme again, probably not the mousse. I would consider re-purchasing the creme in the future unless I discover something better but for now it's not a bad product.

The sweet and sour...

  • A little drying. Made my hair a tad straw-like. Eek!
  • Extra strong hold. Good.
  • Smells like typical hair products, nothing special.
  • Does define the curl but wasn't my favourite of the two.

  • Softening. Almost like a leave in conditioner texture.
  • Dries quick and brushes through nicely.
  • Gave a little bit of shine and more soft look.
  • Extra strong hold. Perfect.
  • Smells the same as the mousse but without the aerosol stink.

Mousse 150g, NZ $5.99, Creme 150ml, NZ $6.99

  1. i just tried the curl creme and am sorry but i found it awful..!! i have naturally curly 3c hair and it made my hair crunchy and straw like with frizz... i love my curls to remain soft but defined.. The next day i struggled to comb through my hair it was gross and sticky ... In addition I can not stand the smell.. will never buy again
