 Don’t Believe the Hype? Believe it.

 Final Thoughts: I received this product in the May curlBOX and I have to admit I rolled my eyes at the sight of it and thought, “Come Son!”  I’d tried this product back when I was relaxed and did not like it one bit my hair it left my hair feeling greasy and weighed down. In spite of this jar toting itself as, “New and Improved” I shelved it. Fast forward to July and I am rifling through my product shelf looking for a pudding or a butter to twist my hair with. I instantly see this product and although I am a bit weary I decide to give it a shot, reminding myself that  relaxed hair isn’t natural hair. I opened the jar and instantly noticed while the scent was familiar the consistency of the product seemed lighter. I used it over my trusty Curl Junkie’s Smoothing Assurance Lotion and lo and behold butter soft twists! I was shocked my hair felt moisturized but not greasy and the definition of my twist out was EVERYTHANG! I have continued to use this throughout the summer and for its price and efficiency, will definitely keep a jar or two on the shelf. Please note- while I have used this product for twists with great results I have never used it daily as a moisturizer or as a thermal protecting treatment perhaps when the winter comes I may explore its other uses.
