Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Product - Awful Packaging I have been using Creme with Silk Groom forever, and I am sixty. It makes my wavy hair LIKE silk. However, the more recent packaging is awful. Takes two hands, squeezing the product onto a spoon and from there onto my hands/hair. Like other reviewers, can we please fix the packaging? Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Creme with Silk Groom This was recommended in place of the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream. It is not the same AT All and does not protect my curly frizzy hair against heat damage. PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream. It was the BEST and there is nothing else like it.The Creme with Silk Groom is greasy, heavy and does not help at all with frizz. I've used the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Creme for at least 10 years and have been trying to find anything that comes close to it. My hair has not been the same since. It feels more brittle and straw like since I ran out of my last tube months ago. I get Keratin treatments and the Straightening Creme was so awesome in conjunction with Keratin. Reading all of these reviews why wouldn't you bring it back? I've spent a lot of money and wasted a lot of products in my search for a replacement...nothing works as well, or smells as nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little cream Tames fly-aways, smoothes hair all over and makes it feel more conditioned, not very strong as a styling cream, which is nice if you're not looking to really style your hair, but even if you are, I can use just a touch of the Creative Cream Wax afterwards and I'm good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tube not squeeze friendly! I have used this product for quite sometime, though not as long as Formula 133. I love the product for the lightness it gives my hair and for the styling without heat. It is also perfect with a small drop of Formula 133 when styling. However, there are two drawbacks to the packing: 1) The tube is not meant for older or younger arthritic users. I must cut the tube to access the contents. 2) The older tubes were more difficult to open but at least the top could be unscrewed that made it easier to squeeze out the creme. I recently purchased two tubes of the creme thinking that I could unscrew the covers but, alas, no can do. I recommend that you seriously rethink the packaging to the delight of all customers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but only when it works I've used this product multiple times over many years. Sometimes it's my go-to hair treatment after a shower and sometimes I don't use it for months. When it works, it works great - I have thick textured hair and it definitely makes it smooth and manageable. However, I find that it is not consistent. My hair has to be an extremely specific amount of damp for it to work correctly. If it's just a bit on the dyer or wetter side, it does nothing but leave my hair greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Okay maybe a little bit off-label use since I'm a woman with long, very thin and very wispy blond/gray hair. I love this product, I don't know what even led me to try it but I've been using it on my fine hair and it's perfect. It's not heavy or greasy but it tames my wisps and my hair falls in perfect large curls down my shoulders. I didn't see my hairdresser for almost SIX MONTHS during the pandemic and when I walked in she exclaimed "Your hair looks amazing!!!" I obviously didn't tell her I traded out her Aveda products for a Kiehl's mens product. Hahaha! But whatever works. I'm so happy with it. I've tried everything under the sun but nothing has ever made my hair look the way I want it to look like this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been using for 30 years I have Been using this product since college. It’s one of those items if someone asked me which product I would want if on a deserted island this would be it. It works so well on my naturally big poufy hair for smoothing. Please don’t ever stop making this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back heat protective cream I was also a loyalist & am so disappointed that my favorite product was discontinued. I've had to switch to (hi brand which is the closest I could find to the same result. But it stinks & leaves my hair dry. Please bring back a beloved product. I shopped in your store

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PLEASE BRING BACK STRAIGHTENING CREAM I am so sad that the other straightening cream is no longer available. It was my absolute favorite. I have thick hair and this cream weights it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crepe with Silk Groom My sister introduced me to this product a couple years ago, I use it to style my semi-dry short hair before blow drying, and in between to calm flyaways. It makes my gray hair shine, and I’ve gotten lots of compliments on how my hair looks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is a terrible product! I am joining the many who were duped into purchasing this product as a “ replacement” for the Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream”. I am so angry that I was told this was just as good as the straightening cream. It fried and frizzed my hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the heat protective silk straightening Why did you guys discontinue such a good product? :( I have used the heat protective silk straightening cream for about 3 years and it really protected my hair from heat. It also helped me style my hair quickly when I didn’t use heat. I’ve been using a different product since this product was discontinued and I noticed that my hair isn’t as healthy as it used to. please bring back this product! Clearly many customers love the product and want it back

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back the heat protectant This was recommeneded in place of the heat protective silk straightening cream. This is not the same at all and does not protect against heat damage. PLEASE bring back the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream. It was the BEST and there is nothing else like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from we want heat protectant silk straightening cream It’s stupid that you guys discontinued such a fabulous product. This product is subpar compared to the discontinued cream and to echo the other reviews, this is an extremely poor substitute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing! I was first introduced to Kiehl's when I started modeling in 1988 and have been using this ever since. Love Love & Love this product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream! Oh please bring back the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream ~ it was perfection! I have fine curly hair prone to frizz, and it turned it to gloss, whether worn curly or straight! So happy to have found it after moving to NYC! Also smelled great, whereas the Creme with Silk Groom leaves hair a bit greasy, smells somewhat unpleasant, and doesn't help nearly as much with frizz.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE - Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream PLEASE Please Please bring back your Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream. There is literally nothing like it on the market. I used it for more than a decade. First time I used it I was a junior in high school - that was 14 years ago. It tamed my hair and made it silky soft. I remember I emailed you guys a few months back when I noticed my auto-replenishment kept missing it. I was so confused. And literally so sad whe I realized you stopped making it. I never ever write reviews but I really miss this product so much. Please listen to me and the other customers pleading you to bring it back. My hair isn't the same! Omg plus - I had recommended this product to so many of my friends. They really liked it as well. I remember recommending Kiehl's to anyone that would listen. But I am so sad about this!! Please. We beg you. This other product is notttt the same at all : /

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heavy Please bring back the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream. It was by far a superior product. This is heavy and does not make my hair smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best mistakes.... I received this product on accident. I called Kiehls to let them know that they sent me the wrong product and that I was more than OK with sending it back, if they sent the correct item, that I ordered. The wonderful woman I spoke to assured me that I could either keep it or give it away. I had read the reviews, in hopes that it was amazing, so that I could order it, literally the day before receiving it on accident. After reading all of the reviews about how horrible it was, I was going to give it to someone else to try. I also remembered that I've been on the hunt for something heavy enough to smooth my straw like hair, and keep it from frizzing out bigger than life in our horrible humidity, so I tried it. I FREAKING LOVE IT! It really is the most effective product I've ever used for smoothness, shine and anti-frizz. I started off with just a pea sized amount, due to everyone's complaint about how heavy and greasy it is, then had to up the "dosage" because it wasn't enough to tame my wildly dry hair. I made it up to about a nickel sized or a little more and it was perfect. I still wanted to leave room for my nourishing oil that I use daily, and it was still not greasy or heavy. I will be buying again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What did you do with the Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream??! Stop playing and bring it back. This is not a substitute and doesn't not work the same way. Kiehls is a brand about timeless products and there is no reason to change a beloved item in the range. Fix it!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring Back Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream Please bring back the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream. Nothing else works like it. It's the only thing that made my hair soft, shiny, smooth and feel like silk when I run my fingers through it. The Crème with Silk Groom is not a substitute and neither are the many products I've tried since it's been discontinued. This morning I used a bit from what is left of the tube I have left - and trying to save - and my hair looks the best it has in month. Please, please bring back the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE BRING BACK HEAT-PROTECTIVE SILK STRAIGHTENING CREAM! I have used your heat-protective silk straightening cream for decades. This product is not the same. It doesn’t smooth or straighten. Does it even protect during blow drying? It doesn’t state that. But regardless, if made my hair look terrible. PLEASE BRING BACK HEAT-PROTECTIVE SILK STRAIGHTENING CREAM! Is this even possible? Please say there is hope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turned my hair to greasy slime I have used your Heat-Preotective Silk straightening Cream for over 10 years and it was perfect fro my hair. I'm so sad it's gone! I have thin hair and it moisturized and took away frizz without being heavy. Because it was discontinued your customer service rep told me the Cream with Silk Groom was what to use instead. Big mistake! The first time I used just a little and my hair was flat and greasy. I had to immediately rewash my hair. I threw the rest of the tube away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from PLEASE bring back Heat Protective Silk Straightening cream!!! This product is heavy and can’t compare with the Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream. The Silk Straightener cream was probably the best solution to control frizzy, curly hair. So disappointed that it is no longer in your product line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE BRING BACK HEAT-PROTECTIVE SILK STRAIGHTENING CREAM! The Creme with Silk Groom can't compare to the HP Silk Straightening Cream. I can't believe Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream was discontinued. The HP Silk Cream nourished and tamed by thick, frizzy hair. Based on the other reviews, I'm not the only sad that it's no longer available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes your hair Greasy and limp, frizzy yet thin, smells horrible. Normally a huge Kiehls fan, love most of the products, all my shower products are Kiehls. this is a rare and major dud. Keep hoping they will finally make a hair treatment that gives drier curly hair luster, shine, moisture, bounce, etc. This is a total fail. First: smells horrible, and the smell lingers for hours. Nauseating. But worse: makes hair greasy and limp, makes it appear thinner. It actually made me loose my curls, and only made my hair frizzy. not soft. No matter how I tried to adjust the portions, hair was greasy and sticky. Tired using barely any: still limp and greasy, and that's saying something for my usually dry curls. I expect and hope that Kiehls will come up with something better down the line. AVOID.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NO!!! PLEASE bring back the Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream!!! I've used the Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream for over a decade. It is the best product out there, and has helped tame my thick, often frizzy, curly hair each and every time I blowdry my hair (3-4x a week). I've tried the Silk Groom before and it doesn't come close. Please, please, please bring back the Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same as the heat protective silk This doesn’t even come close to a product we’ve used and loves for over a decade. Please bring it back! I’ve purchased 3-6 tubes per year and introduced my nieces to the product and the whole Kiehls line based on how good this product is. Or was... So very very sad
