Don’t Believe the Hype? Believe It!

Final Thoughts:  First off can I just say how much I love that this company offers its products in  a variety of sizes at different prices. I bought the 2oz. sample size  and after using the product was really disappointed that I hadn’t bought a larger sized container. I really, really like this product. The consistency is light and it boasts 97% natural ingredients. I used it over Curl Junkies Smoothing Lotion for a twist out on Lola (the twist out I’m rocking in the Natural Hair and Neons post).*  My hair had great definition. I loved that it  was soft and moisturized and not greasy or weighed down. The product is only available online and it did take  a few weeks to receive my order after I had placed it.  I think the longer shipping time may have been mostly due to the product being new and in high demand, either way it was definitely worth the wait. I am definitely going to purchase a larger size of the product very soon.


 *Since I had only purchased the 2oz. sample size I wasn’t able to twist my all of my hair with the product. I used Elasta QP Mango Butter when I ran out. While both products gave me good definition, I felt the test whip let my hair a bit softer and more mositurized.
