I've tried many products that make the claims that this one does, but this is the first that lived up to its promises. It both defined & held my natural curls without that stiff, sprayed appearance. Use SPARINGLY--too much & your hair will get a case of those dreaded "crunchies". I was about to give up on sprays of this type, since they always gave me that awful plastic look, & when used sparingly, didn't work at all. This product, however, made the grade. If you need to apply to a smaller section of hair, such as the curls that might fall around your face when the bulk of your hair is in a barrette or something, dispense product into your hand 1st, then scrunch into hair. Yes, that'll make your hand sticky, but better to have a sticky hand that you can easily cleanse with soap & water, than to have sticky icky hair.

I followed the directions and sprayed it on dry hair. After that, you're suppossed to blow dry it for 1 minute to avoid tackiness. As soon as I sprayed it on my hair, it got hard. I didn't even get a chance to blow dry it because it was already hard. Tried to comb out the hardness but it was very difficult. I was able to curl my hair but I could not run my fingers thru the curls or comb or brush them. because they were so hard. The only thing I could do is leave them alone or wet my hair. I would not buy this again.

    My hair is stick straight and I spray a small amount on after I blow dry with a round brush. I set my curling iron on medium and when I am done curling, I run my fingers through and arrange!

    Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray, 8 fl oz:

    This product is for when you want a curl or bangs to stay in place. It's very very strong. You can carefully brush it out and it does not leave any film or residue.

    Can also be brushed through before using hot curlers or curling irons for extra hold. But, I like to use it like hair spray to hold long hair in curls.

        Just a light spray prior to using the curling iron and your curls stay in place throughout the day.

        Delivery was quick and wrapped so no leakage would occur.

              Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray, 8 fl oz:

              As a die hard fan of BedHead TIGI Uptight Curl Maker (the best product ever) it was very difficult finding a replacement product that works. Since that miracle spray is now discontinued, after trying several sprays I really do love this stuff.

              Stay away from Redken 22...horrible! I have fine, straight hair but lots of it and use velcro or hot rollers every day. I wash my hair with sulfate free shampoo and apply any mousse then blow dry straight. Sprtiz each section of hair and apply rollers. Voila....your hair retains the curl and it lasts for hours.

              Still not as good as my beloved Uptight but it's a contender. Hope this helps :)

                I only have wavy hair around my face and this product makes me look like a natural Shirley temple...love how easy it is and how natural it feels. I only spray and scrunch with my fingers a little bit of heat from my hair dryer and whalla model curls. Best thing ever!!!

                  Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray, 8 fl oz:

                  I LOVE this stuff. I use it and it holds my curls all day long. I have very fine, straight hair, so it's tough to get my hair to hold any kind of shape. I've yet to find another product that holds my curls for more than an hour. I think a lot of the bad reviews come from people who don't know how to use the product. I just spray it all over and under my hair (but not the roots), let it dry a minute or two, and then brush it out. It smells like hair spray, but other than that you won't even notice it's there after you brush it out. After I brush it out I curl my hair in sections with a 1" curling iron and spray a bit of finishing spray after I'm finished. I literally only spend 10 minutes curling my hair and this stuff keeps it curled all day. It's amazing!

                    I have shoulder length hair with quite a bit of natural wave to it. This product really holds the curl in well without having to use hot rollers or other heated curling appliances. I spray it in, blow dry my hair and voila! I'm ready to roll!
