I know that I said before that I run when I see all of the alcohols and ingredients that I cannot read, but I just had to try this one. It is funny, for me, anything that works for other type 4c kinky‘s do not work for me, but what does not work for them, works for me that is why we have to find what works for us and keep using it.

What does it look like and how does it smell?

First of all, this conditioner felt smooth and it was not really creamy but more of a thick consistency. It smelled great inside the bottle and in my kinky hair. The conditioner was blue in color just like the bottle, so that kind of worried me because normally when you add something else in, it weakens something else.

My experience.

I co-washed with this several times.I left it on for about 5minutes prior to detangling. It provided great slip for detangling and I noticed that my curls started to form while I was applying it onto my kinky textured hair in the shower. After detangling, I covered my hair with a plastic shower cap for another 15 minutes. After I rinsed, I did not apply any other type of conditioner for the conditioning process so I moved right onto my pampering session.


What I noticed was that after my hair dried, it was hard and crunchy. It also felt like my kinky strands were seriously coated with something and I did not like it at all. No moisture just crunch.


The price is the bomb, but I knew at that price what I could be expecting.

Final thoughts:

I will leave this product for other naturals to use. I actually gave mine to my friend that loves it. So you will not hear or see me using this product. Hope it works for others. For an alternate review, please click here

  1. Ummm, I really think that they changed the ingredients around cause it doesn’t really work right in my hair like it used to!

  2. I must agree Inesa because it hasn’t worked well for me either as a conditioner, but wonderfully as a “shampoo”… I don’t plan to but this again, but it won’t go to waste either! Lol

  3. I heard that girl, don’t let it go to waste use it up or save it for a different time of year because it might work better for you then.
