Review by BotticelliCurls on 11 Jul 2021 review stating Refresher!
I have fine almost curly waves, which are easily pooped out and stretched flat unless they’re spic and span with the perfect styler. So, I love Build Up Buster! It cleans perfectly, never seems to be too stripping, then my hair styles easily and reliably. I might use this ever 2-3 weeks, or every 4-6 washes.
