Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner
Having a leave-in conditioner that works is paramount to the success of a natural's hair style! It must keep tresses moisturized! Your selection may have glycerin or be glycerin free but should be easily absorbed by your strands.
Leave-Ins run the gammut of being runny to thick and creamy which makes the quest to find one primarily dependent on the type of curl, coils, and texture of your hair.
- This product can be used daily to moisture hair
- Since it has been blended with Shea Butter, the product will "seal" in moisture
- Safe for color-treated, curly, natural, or relaxed tresses
- This product is comparable to Giovanni Organic Direct Leave-In and Kinky Curly's Knot Today Leave-In
The consistency of this product is a medium thick and creamy. You can liken it to a hair lotion.
Fragrance: Is a light, coconut shea butter smell.

My Experience With This Product
I have applied the product to both freshly washed and second and third day hair with stunning results. The product had great slip and easily detangled my coily, wavy tresses. I was amazed that on, especially wet or damp hair, it took very little of the product to produce soft, vibrant, and bouncy tresses,
It has always been my custom to mist my hair at night and apply a leave-in of one brand or another. Each night I midst hair, make eight sections, apply the leave-in and loosely twist hair to prevent tangling while sleeping, and I cover hair with a clear conditioning cap.
In the Morning:
I take off the clear conditioning cap and shake hair. My tresses are slightly damp and is easily manipulate. So, I'll shape into style and get ready for work. In the winter I will slightly change the routine to prepare hair as noted above but will allow hair to "completely" dry and either wrap hair or cover hair with a scarf for the night.
I found my hair to be extremely "touchable," pliable, and surprisingly soft! My hair was not "sticky" or "tacky." A dime-sized amount of product to average sections was enough to coat my hair and allowed plenty of "clumping."
