Qhemet Amla and Olive Heavy Cream

By Curly Nikki 7 Comments

Get it here. I think Suburbanbushbabe said it best when she described Qhemet’s Amla and Olive Heavy Cream as ‘rain in a jar’. It was her rave reviews and Teshon’s on naturallycurly.com that prompted me to try it (among other products, lol). Like Teshon, I’m a fine haired, protein sensitive curly.
