MopTop Natural

curly hair custard (natural) Citrus Kumquat

This styler is our triple-threat – it provides soft definition for curls, creates volume, and locks in moisture without heaviness or crunch. This product is designed for wavy, curly and kinky-coily hair. Perfect for cocktailing with our Leave-In Conditioner and Mongongo Oil (see LOC Method).

Directions for use: Apply section by section to wet (or just shy of dripping-wet) hair, scrunch, and let dry or “set” until about 80% dry. Scrunch to “release” the set. Curls like to be together and will separate if you scrunch or touch too much before almost dry. Once it has set, you may work with it without creating more frizz. May also be used to smooth dry fly-aways. A little goes a long way!

Ingredients YOU WON’T FIND in MopTop products:

  • NO Sulfates
  • NO Parabens*
  • NO Dyes

    The description of this product is spot on. This product made my curls look fabulous! My curls had volume, structure, with NO frizz and NO stiffness. This is my go to product!

    This custard is one of the best out there (I have tried quite a few others). This is definitely a staple product for me! I love the results when I use this. I use it on freshly washed hair over a cream or mousse with fabulous results. It also works great as a refreshe (if needed)r for 2nd or 3rd day hair (I smooth it over each section of hair and then wet my hands and smooth water over the hair). This leaves my hair shiny and nicely clumped. A fabulous product!! Two thumbs up. The scent is a plus. 🙂
    Thank you!

    I love this light gel. It isn’t sticky or crunchy but has enough hold to give soft, touchable frizz free curls! A great curl enhancer with medium hold.

    I was skeptical when I ordered this because it said “custard”. Other custards I’ve tried in the past have been creamy, thick and weigh my hair down. When I received it and saw it wasn’t thick at all I started worrying because I though it wouldn’t be strong enough to hold my wild hair. Boy, was I wrong!! I used it together with the Leave-In conditioner and I was blown away by the results! I set it with a diffuser until almost dry and let the air do the rest. It was gorgeous!! I took so many pictures that day because my hair was worth a million dollars. I love love love love this and recommend it fully. I usually struggle when it comes to products because my hair just has a mind of it’s own. But this custard tamed it. Awesome job MopTop.

    I waited to buy this custard because I was certain of any Mop Top product will be in the Curlkit, it would be this one. It wasn’t! I ended up driving 26 miles in the rain to get it at Target. I have a wedding to go to & wouldn’t dare take a chance on any other product for such an occasion. I’m going to order the 16oz just to make sure I don’t run out again.

    Works better than any other custard on the market, hands down! No surprises, I’m always going to achieve curl perfection with the Curly Hair Custard. I’m AA and have super thick curly & dense hair.

    I love this stuff and cannot RAVE enough about how much it makes my hair shiny, soft, and touchable. A little does really go a long way. After washing with Daily Shamp/Cond, I always do a cool rinse to impart shine & close the cuticle. I then take a dime size amount of the Custard and gently apply it, starting with the ends up. I section twirl, cool diffuse. Once almost dry, I separate and lightly scrunch my hair…PERFECT curls! Thank you Mop Top for one of the bestest ever styling products!!

    Holy curls I am so impressed with this product! I have Hagrid-esque textured hair and it usually takes some industrial strength gel and prayers to get my curls looking cute. I’m not sure what sorcery must be involved in this product, but my curls look defined and dare I even say HYDRATED (which really is a miracle considering my hair is much like what I imagine a beaver pelt to be. Impervious to water). Love love love!
