I was extremely excited to try this leave-in conditioner once it arrived, I used it on freshly shampooed hair and paired it with the Cashmere Curl Jelly (review coming soon) and twisted my hair in small/medium sections. It has a liquid lube like texture that can make your hands sticky if not applied immediately. The next morning I was NOT happy with my results. My hair was extremely stiff and crunchy sounding, had no definition and looked extremely dry. The product can also be used on dry hair so I added it to my dry twistout in order to rejuvenate it.. and it didn't.. I was not a happy camper. But sticking true to my "No such thing as a bad product" motto, I tried it again with a different approach. After a co-wash with Eden's Bodyworks Peppermint Tea Tree conditioner I applied the Leave-in and paired it with my Sunburst Shea mix and after my hair dried I was MUCH happier with the results. My hair felt moisturized not coated, which is a HUGE difference when styling. It had a nice shine to it and was very manageable. It just so happens that my friend was over for the evening and applied the Leave-in to her naked, freshly shampooed hair and she was ecstatic about the results (She has 3C type hair, compared to my multi-textured hair) She had a great amount of shine, soft hair and well defined curls from her twist out, which made me guess that this product wasn't for my hair texture but could be worked into my regimen if used with the right products. I give this product a 7/10 on the hair scale.
