E27CF5A3-44F9-466C-8677-A7C3F2A583D4

I have wavy hair that tends to be frizzy and lose curl shape easily, but using this serum has completely changed that—even just air drying my hair after applying the serum leaves my curls beautiful and with zero frizz and all the definition! Best part is that it's so lightweight it melts right into your hair without weighing down or causing any greasy-ness. it's perfect.

A wavy and curly hair go-to

Every time I use this, I wake up the next day with more curls and waves than I knew I had. It’s a serum, so it’s thin enough that it doesn’t weigh your hair down but potent enough to achieve visible results.”

as someone with medium-length, thick, 2A, relatively balanced, highlighted hair, that is easily weighed down by products...i mainly use this product when i know i'm air drying my hair. i also use it as needed if/when my hair is feeling a lil thirsty. but it's the tiniest bit too heavy to use after every wash. PLUS: THE SIGNATURE SCENT IS AMAZING!!! 10/10 recommend if you have curly hair & are looking for a hydrating curling cream!

Keep my hair soft

There was a noticeable difference right after I started using the Curl Activator. I genuinely love how it smells and I can see my curls forming.

I'm currently training my hair to be more curly and it's helping me with my transition process. Absolutely a must-have. :)

it REALLY works????

When I started taking care of my 2b waves I struggled to find a routine that was low-maintenance enough to work for me. Just scrunching a little of this in when damp leaves my waves soft and defined and also literally makes my hair curl MORE. It's got the perfect amount of hold for my thinner strands that don't even like mousse. and it smells AMAZING. Even my mother says my hair looks great, when she normally just tells me to brush it! Miracle product, truly!

The BEST

I love this serum. I used to use a product that was custom made for my hair - but it was too expensive. I have loved the other Ceremonia Products and decided to try this as a curl cream/serum. It works better than the other product and is less expensive. It makes my hair feel so soft, and I love the scent! Loving everything that I use from Ceremonia thus far. :)

Great product

I am growing out my hair after losing it to chemo. Therefore, my hair's needs change often ( a 1/4 of an inch has a big impact, when your hair is as short as mine is). Anyway, it is doing a great job helping me to manage all the different needs it has.
