I’ve got mixed feelings. Isn’t that always the case?!
What I like: The ingredients are superb, it’s incredibly rich, moisturizing, and smells like pumpkin pie. Hubby tried it the other day and proclaimed, ‘this smells like Thanksgiving… or a Tuesday afternoon at my fam’s house!‘ Besides loving the fragrance, he said his hair felt ‘soft and luxurious‘. I used it after shampooing, let it set for 15 minutes, detangled, and rinsed. I was left with moisturized, defined curls.
What I don’t like: It’s way too thick for a rinse-out. Don’t get me wrong, I love a thick conditioner as much as the next curly, but I look for slip and ease of application in my instant conditioners. The consistency is similar to a heavy cream and provided very little help with detangling (until I cut it with water). I found it difficult to pump out of the bottle and just as difficult applying it evenly throughout my hair (went on rough). With that said, I think it would make a superb Deep Treatment.
Bottom Line: It smells great, touts delicious ingredients, and provides excellent moisture. Would I purchase? Probably not. I need conditioners that moisturize and aid in detangling. I’ll use the rest for deep conditioning treatments. It’s definitely worth a try though… it’s Sold Out on their website for a reason! Other curlies gave it rave reviews, I just wish I shared their sentiment.

Great leave-in! I love the slippery consistency (similar to the Garnier Cream Gel) because it makes for easy application and keeps my hair detangled during the twisting process. I used it underneath the Garnier Cream Gel. My hair today? Eh… it’s incredibly soft and obviously moisturized, but has almost zero hold and a little frizz. In the future, I’ll use this leave-in when I’m looking for fluffy, care free hair. Honestly, I think the moisture may out live the set. I’ll take some pics later!
It has what I consider to be an ideal consistency, light vanilla fragrance, and provides a lot of moisture. If you’re looking for a firmer set, you may want to skip it. If you’re thinking of rocking a wash-n-go or fluffier twist-out, go for it!
