I likey…but it didn’t hold well in the NC humidity, or should I say the NC dew point. Check out THIS ARTICLE for more on dew points and how it effects your curls. Today, the dew point was in the mid 60’s, so I probably should’ve put it in a bun and called it a day.
My hair feels unbelievably soft and moisturized. It’s a bit frizzy, and shrunk up a bit over the course of the day, but overall I’m pleased. It’s the cute frizz…not the bad stuff 🙂 I’ve already placed my order for two more jars of Shine and Define. I also ordered Oyin’s Honey Hemp conditioner after watching Empressri’s awesome review on youtube. The ingredients look delicious.
To style, I left in a teeny bit of Carols Daughter Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie…I used a quarter size amount for each side (left and right). Before starting each twist, I’d add a dab of Shine and Define to my fingers and proceed. After the twists were done, I rolled the ends and went to bed.
Consistency: It has amazing slip (probably due to the aloe vera) and a creamy gel consistency. It glides on easy and absorbs quickly.
Fragrance: It smells like Starbursts candy…very sugary sweet, but not over powering.
By the way, it’s protein, paraben, and silicone free! I’m going to try it again on Wednesday night with the Honey Hemp Conditioner as my leave-in. I’ll keep you gals posted!
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a light hold styler with a HUGE moisture punch, definitely check this out 🙂 It gives light, fluffy, yet defined hair. I ordered through Curlmart. I’m definitely adding this to my arsenal.
