coconutEden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Curl Defining Creme is a humidity-resistant creme used to separate and define curls and waves of all textures. It also provides maximum hold when applied to dry or damp hair (works better on wet hair). Use your fingers or comb to distribute the creme through your hair until the desired level of curl definition is reached.

This product has a thick, creamy texture, but it isn’t as thick as a shea butter. It smells fresh, and like, coconut…of course. It also doesn’t take its title “Curl Defining” lightly. It defines curls extremely well. I’m a bit heavy headed, so it took me no time to use this  16 fl. oz. of creme .

She is also a brand ambassador, and does product reviews. She has PERFECTED the wash and go, and a million other styles that are awesome for naturalistas of all hair textures and lengths.
