The best conditioner
I love this conditioner. It works great for co washing or as a conditioner. I have 4a/b low porosity hair. It detangles my hair which has a very tight curl pattern. I would use it every time I wash if I could afford to but I wash or co wash at least 2-3 times per week so I also use a cheap conditioner sometimes. I agree with one of the previous reviews, it would be better in a pump style bottle but I love the consistency of it so if that needs to be changed for a pump bottle then I'll deal with the jar.
This completely dried out my hair it felt like I was using a clarifying shampoo on my hair. One of the worst products I've every tired. Just Horrible.
Didn't work good on my hair.
I just washed with it and it made my hair feel hard. I like the other products will continue to use the other stuff just not this.
Sof n free
I love this product! I washed first with the deep cleansing shampoo (I love it too!!) and then followed with this, section by section. It felt a bit odd on my strands since I usually stick to all natural products. I thought uh-oh I'm not going to like this lol. But I noticed less shedding in the shower right away. I don't mind the packaging at all, I just scoop it up and it's very thick so it's quite easy and not messy at all in the shower. My hair was softer than it has been in years after it air dried - with no DC and no leave in! I'm really impressed. My strands were immediately so much stronger! I'm sold! I believe this product will help me so much with length retention for my super fine 4 type coils. The great thing is it doesn't weigh my hair down or feel heavy at all. And it smells great. Love it!
I saw this in either Ebony or Essence magazine and wanted to give it a try, so I bought it at Sally's Beauty supply store. I have thick natural kinky hair and always prefer to use natural hair products (my hair reacts better). I would say this is an ok product, it does what it says. I also wish it came in a pump container or a container as the shampoo.
wish it came in a pump
The product works fine but I really wish it came in a pump type container. It is too hard to use a product in the shower that you have to scrawny the off and then set it down in order to use two hands to properly distribute the product. I received this product in a giveaway but would not repurchase until the packaging changes. As far as cleansing, it worked fine, nothing exceptional.
