I’ve used this rich and creamy conditioner to aid in detangling, to deep condition, to moisturize post henna, to leave-in and to style. It moisturizes as well as MyHoneyChild’s Olive You Deep Conditioner, only
you can find it in on the ground, and, AND you can leave it in! I
used it to style my Wash & Go a couple of times in Brazil and
although it left me a bit more ‘coated’ and ‘product-y’ than other
leave-ins, it weighed my hair down a bit, smoothed the frizz and reduced the shrinkage situation. It also kept my hair moisturized longer, which is hard to come by and much appreciated.
As far as consistency, the ish is thick, but rinses clean, leaving behind shiny, moist, soft, detangled hair. I’ve purchased around 4 tubes in the past two months… I go through tons of it because it falls short in one category- slip (that seaweedy feeling you get when the conditioner coats the hair and helps you to more effectively detangle the hair). Now usually that’s a deal breaker for me, but it isn’t totally without slip… you just have to use a LOT, which would also be okay if it wasn’t so damn expensive! So yeah, other than that, it’s truly a wonder product and has nestled into my hair regimen as one of my go-to multipurpose conditioners.
Lastly, for the ‘conscious curly’ the ingredient list may be a bit unsavory, but for ‘the loose cannon curlies’ like myself *shrugs* it works! I definitely recommend it and will be purchasing it again.
