Fragrance: This smells like creamy coconut. It lingers in the hair and smells delicious!
Texture: Thick and creamy. It is slightly thinner than Aussie Moist conditioner.
Your experience: I use this as a curl cream or as a moisturizer under heavier gels. It’s said to have medium hold, but it only provides a light hold for my curls. As a curl cream I layer it over a leave-in conditioner and jojoba oil following the L.O.C. Method. I also use it with success under As I Am Smoothing gel, Ampro Clear Ice gel and Herbal Essence Set Me Up gel.
Would you recommend to a curlfriend: Absolutely!
How many curls overall (on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the kitties titties!): I give this product a 4.5 out of 5. I docked a ½ star because it takes a bit for the product to be absorbed and I can only reapply a few times before I start to get product build-up. A co-wash takes care of that though. This is a great product that I will repurchase.
