Silk Powder is obtained from the secretion of silkworms. It is used primarily in skin care products to improve humectancy and oil absorption.


Soybean Oil is one of the most important oils produced today. It contains about 60% polyunsaturated fatty acids and is a good source of Vitamin E, used frequently in soaps and bath oils. The oil obtained by soybeans is extracted, consisting of emollient properties such as oleic, linolenic and saturated acids. Ancient traditions cultivated soybeans for its protein, oil, and lecithin content – believed to be a superior moisturizing agent that helps soften skin.

I have been using this for years and it works flawlessly. Now that I've got a Harley, I use it before riding back and forth to work or to school, and after I take off my helmet my hair still looks great (not perfect, but great after a little play with my fingers).

I have short fine but textured silver grey hair and sometimes I like much more defined piecing. I currently use Aveda's control paste but I find it's not quite enough to last through a work day. Like natural products as those with alcohol can yellow grey hair. I get compliments all the time on the color and shine so I work hard to preserve that.

Best Answer: Is this product ever going to be back in stock?? It is now January 2013, and not only is Kiehl's itself out of this product, so are all other retailers I've tried (Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Amazon, etc.).

I absolutely love the Creative Cream Wax and have been using it for years. It gives hold and manageability without looking stiff or fake. BUT, I am concerned because I cannot find it anywhere and the website simply informs customers that it is "out of stock". Is there any information on when it will be in stock or are there any problems with the product?

Does the creative cream wax have any shine?
A shopper on May 14, 2014
Best Answer: I have used the product for a decade or more because my hair tends to get fluffy and unruly--particularly in warm weather. The product gives my hair added weight and hold. It does not impart a shine like a pomade.

What kind of hold does the Creative Cream Wax have? Does it add shine to your hair?
W A on Apr 18, 2013
Best Answer: It doesn't have a strong hold, at least on my hair. I think it's because I have thick and stiff hair. However, I think it will be a great product to people who have soft and curly hair because it will create natural wavy and layered effect on your hair. One of the best thing I like about the product is that It doesn't add shine to your hair like gel. Hope you find this information helpful.

I'm looking for a product that gives a natural hold, matte finish. is this it?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2014
Best Answer: Yes it is! If you have some natural shine to your hair, it will still come through; the product doesn't seem to "dull" my hair. It is a great product.

I have thick straight hair. I don't really style my hair in any way, I like it to have a nice flat even look. My problem is, especially after I get a hair cut and it is shortened, my hair gets very frizzy or "staticy" with strays sticking out everywhere. It's the worse right after a shower. I actually sometimes put on a beanie for 25 minutes after a shower to flatten it. I've tried leave in conditioner, which helps with softness but doesn't do the flattening trick. I'm looking for a product that will essentially weigh down all the stray hairs and give me a hold, without any stiffness or oiliness. Is this product right for me?
chris m on May 13, 2014
Best Answer: I have very thick hair as well. This product works amazingly well for control. Try applying it to your dry hair. If that doesn't work, apply it when hair is wet and if still doesn't work, do what I do. Apply it to damp hair and when your hair dries, add a bit more to control any stray hairs.

What scent does the creative cream have?
Nora K on Jan 25, 2014
Best Answer: Good question. I would characterize the nose as herbal, somewhere on the mint - witch hazel spectrum. It isn't strong nor is it medicinal. In fact, unlike other product I've used, the scent from creative cream wax does not persist, i.e. it isn't up front/in your face. One reason why I like it.

Is the creative cream wax safe to use on color treated hair?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2014
Best Answer: I've been using this wax product for years and have never had a problem with the coloring for my hair. I have a 5 minute hair color done to cut my grey hair. Zero effect from the product in my experience.

A shopper on Apr 4, 2014
Best Answer: The product doesn't achieve "stiffness" in appearance or feel. I don't know how it will affect your curls.

I normally do my hair like Ryan Gosling's or David Beckham's, I was wondering if this product has the right kind of hold for those looks?
Jonathan S on Aug 17, 2012
Best Answer: This would probably be perfect for you. I do my hair similarly, and this is the best hair care product I've ever used. My hair is naturally very curly so to get something that holds (and lasts) without making it look like I'm wearing a plastic helmet or like I just got out of the shower is difficult. I can't say enough positive things about this this stuff. Expensive, but worth every penny. A dab the size of a small marble is plenty to achieve the look you're looking for. Hope this helps. Stuff is fantastic.
