No, this product is to help define hair that is already curly, it won't give you curls.
When I first used this I had shoulder length hair and I used about a quater size. But I do have a LOT of SUPER thick hair.

I think it's a very large sample to let you try it out and see if you like it. I have the sample right now too, and when I tried it, I used a large dollop about the size of five quarters stacked (because that's how much came out when I squeezed). I have medium-thickness chest-length wavy hair. When I saw how much came out, I freaked out a little, but thought what the hey, and tried it out anyways, and smoothed it all through my hair, focusing on the tips and center areas, and smoothing some on the top to control frizz. It worked out great! The hold isn't very strong in this cream, and my curls were fluffy and smooth, touchable, with no crunch. They were nourished like with a leave-in conditioner. If you have shorter hair, you won't need as much of course, but if you have longer hair, you'll appreciate how much came in that sample! I bet I could get 6 or 7 uses out of this sample, pretty generous!

I use about a nickel size on the front area, and a nickel size on the back area of my head. BUT, I use this product in conjunction with another Devacurl gel, so I use a bit less, and use this for additional hold and softness of my curls. The combination seems to work really well. Oh, and a little either flexible hold hair spray from deva to finish it so curls stay in tact. Hope this helps.
The sample I received was extremely generous...I was able to get 3 full uses out of it for long (well past shoulder-length) hair.
you need a good amount. i would use that whole sample size on my fine, curly hair (longer than shoulder length).
In my opinion, it's always trial and error depending on your hair type..
If you have fine hair be very careful! Maybe you can try it out on a day that you don't have to go out just in case you get too much.. I have very thick hair and used the entire sample.. Good luck! ;)

I have fine wavy hair. The sample is very generous and I got 6 uses out of it. My hair is layered and just past my chin. Smell is great and leaves your hair without that waxy feeling that many styling products have. If your hair is longer and thicker you will still get at least 4 uses. I am now on my second purchase of this cream and will continue to buy. Love it!
