  1. Can you explain to me what a curl enhancer is? And how you use it with other product. I'm the one who thought the Shea Moisture souffle was a gel so I'm obviously quite in the dark about it all!

    1. A curl enhancer is a product with little or no hold that is meant to enhance curls. It is usually a jelly type product. They usually enhance curl by adding moisturizing ingredients like aloe or flax.
      Curl enhancers are applied over your leave in and under your gel (or other product for hold). Most wavies need an additional product for hold, but a few can use only a curl enhancer.

  2. Pedaheh,
    could you,please, also explain what a curl cream is? or what is the difference between a curl cream and curl enhancer?
    Thank you!

    1. Curl creams are creamy. They are more like a leave in conditioner with hold. Curl enhancers are usually more clear, jelly like products.
