This is Why I Will Never Use Pantene’s Curling Custard

I recently learned a valuable lesson – just because a brand is particularly good in a few areas, they aren’t necessarily good at everything.

Oh, Pantene…why thou forsake me and turn my hair into paper?


Yeah, it’s that bad. Let’s begin…

The Consistency:

For what it’s worth, it’s creamy and smooth. It does smell great.

The Cost:

Very cheap. I paid a little over $6 for this one. It’s available pretty much everywhere.

The Routine:

I used it (only once because that’s all I needed) as a leave-in.

The Result:


Now, don’t be confused by the smile in the picture. It’s a natural reaction. I wasn’t happy. If you look closely at the picture, you can see strands of my hair sticking out and that’s because I was stretching out my hair in disbelief. Oh, it looked amazing when I first put the custard on, but after a few hours, it felt like a dollar-dollar bill, y’all.

My Review:


  • It’s cheap.
  • If you love custards, you might like this one.
  • It works best on Type 4 hair.


  • It made my hair feel like paper.


Bottom line – I do not recommend this product.¬†I’m disappointed because I’m actually a fan of the Pantene brand but this product dropped the ball.

Le sigh. Onto the next product…
