"Before using OM I had really given up on any kind of a hair styling routine, but now I actually look forward to it, because I know that the styling will last all day, and I am doing something really healthy for my hair. I use the Shape Shifter after the shower and just let it air dry to bring out my natural wave and slight curl."

Go from frizz to fab in one easy step! Elasticizing floral waxes pull water into the hair and keep it there for long-lasting moisture. Our glycerin-free formula helps ensure that curls stay put without the poof. This is Moxie Magic at its best – natural, effortless, and 100% you! Please note: our Refill Cartons are designed for use exclusively with our Reusable Capsules. Purchase both together as a Starter Kit to save $10!

An elasticizing and moisturizing curl definer.

Dry, thick curls that prefer a humectant-free moisturizer to look their best.

Jasmine and Tuberose Wax are natural plant derivatives obtained from the process of essential oil extraction.  Both are absorbed by the hair at uniquely high rates, allowing moisture to penetrate the cuticle and introducing more bend and flex into thick, coarse hair.  Flax Seed Gel adds touchable but strong hold, and adds staying power to the intended style. Click for a full list of ingredients.

Subtly fruity and floral with a strong Tuberose aroma.

Apply liberally in small sections to clean, soaking wet hair (spraying to re-wet, if necessary), & smoothing through with fingers or a detangling brush. Work in small sections of 1” or less and follow with a Definer for best results.

Shape Shifter™ is our go-to for tight, ‘S’-shaped curls! Pair with Hold Up™ Defining Serum to perfect your texture and banish frizz for days.

  1. Fantastic product

    Posted by Diana on 25th Apr 2023

    This product works so well for me when paired with Just Gel. I have long wavy hair and this combo is doing a fantastic job of hydrating and reducing frizz.

  2. Not What I Expected

    Posted by Berry on 21st Mar 2023

    I am a tight curly, medium density, smooth surface texture gal. My typical products have the same instructions as this, but I’ve never used a cream styler for a wash-n-go. The hold for this product along with Hold Up is A+. But either my application and technique were off or this is simply not for my hair type. All I could do is put my hair in a puff after drying. The results were not what I usually achieve with other products. Perhaps there are some tips and tricks that I’m not aware of.

    Our Reply: Thanks for your feedback, Berry! Matching the correct moisturizer to your hair type is essential to achieve good results. We recommend taking our Hair Type Quiz to find the one that's best for you. There can also be a learning curve with application when switching from another product line. We encourage you to reach out to us at 734.340.4022 or for personalized guidance.

  3. Product is great - packaging is terrible

    Posted by Danielle on 26th Nov 2022

    I’ve been using this for years and it’s a great product for curly hair. 5 stars for product, 1 star for packaging. I liked how it nicely fit into a drawer and was way to travel with. The new packing is giant, and requires being moved into a new container since you can’t just toss the container into a bag or suitcase now. I think this was a misguided attempt at going green that also resulted in a large shipping box as opposed to a smaller box used in previous shipments. It’s also going to be able get all the product out of the carton without cutting it open - but then there won’t be a way to reseal and keep it from drying out.

    Moxie Says: Thank you for your feedback, Danielle! We appreciate your loyalty. The cartons are intended to be used with the outer Capsule and are not meant for travel. We do offer Mini XL travel sizes with lockable lids if you would prefer a smaller, more compact size.

  4. love the product not the package

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Oct 2022

    Love this product..,. my mate notices when I don't use it that how good it is... but the new package... not so much.

    Original Moxie Says: Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry to hear that you're not a fan of our sustainable packaging. It's meant to be used with the Reusable Capsule. Please feel free to reach out to us at with detailed feedback.

  5. love the product but....

    Posted by Angela on 20th Aug 2022

    I love the product and have used it for years.... my issue is with the packaging. The pump stopped working when I tried to use the new carton. I followed the directions but could not get any product out of the pump :/

    Original Moxie's Comment: Angela, if you're reading this, please contact us at or 734.340.4022. We would be happy to replace your pump at no charge. :-)

  6. Holy Grail of hair creams

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jul 2022

    I have tried endless brands and nothing really worked in my hair to moisturize and define. A lot of products caused buildup and made my hair dry and brittle or wouldn’t keep my hair defined. I started to make my own products and even though they worked great, took entirely too much time. I went to a education and healthy hair focused salon and they introduced me to this hair cream. My goodness! It moisturizes, defines and holds my curls! It smells pleasant and a little goes a long way. I’ve been telling everyone about this cream. Love it

  7. coily curls!!

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Mar 2022

    Love the feel of my hair after applying this product! It looks great with a subtle scent and feels nice and soft as well

  8. The Best

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Jul 2021

    I think that shape shifter is the best product for curly hair if you live in a humid climate. I have been using shape shifter for years. Sometimes I stray and try a new product but inevitably return to shape shifter after being disappointed with the new product. Thank you Original Moxie for creating a marvelous product.

  9. Love !!!

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Jun 2021

    Hello! I live in Las Vegas. I was introduced to the product by @iamblackgirlcurls through see some curls. This is a nice base creme gel and topped off with hold up defining serum all apply to soaking wet hair. Now this is done on clean hair shampooed and conditioned hair.
    Results end up being flexible hold with definition.
    Love all the way.
    It took me some time to get the results and my learning remains dynamic, wish you would make CD for application of your products could not really find a good video on IG Or YT to show me application which is so important to achieve the best results .

  10. great product

    Posted by Jessica Cole on 28th Apr 2021
