My Experience: Not a fan of the fragrance…for some reason, it reminds me of Noxzema. The ingredient list is pretty impressive, and if used sparingly, this product will add shine and moisture to your curls. With that said, if you use too much of it, you’re left with frizzy, greasy, lifeless hair. In fact, my hair responds to CDHHB the same way it responds to Qhemet’s Heavy Cream. I think it makes a great sealant, despite the fact that the first ingredient is water (apply to hair ends after conditioning and styling). It also appears to be heavy enough to use as a pomade to slick down edges.

Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a moisturizer, and heavier products don’t bother you, definitely check this out. The price is decent, and even if you can’t use it for an all over moisturizer, it will definitely protect your ends from the elements. Would I purchase it again? Probably not, the fragrance is strong, and I already have an excellent (and cheap) pomade and sealant–Shea.
