    Yes it does work. I have short hair like yours. Mine is really curly and poofy and every morning when i wake up (unless I straighten it) it looks like I'm a lion!!! I tried this and works beautifully

    my friend has rly thin hair ( like soooo thin ) but i tried on her and it works, just not as big and fuller looking. Does this help??? Also with your curly hair it can look quite nice or u can straighten it
