My new favorite leave-in conditioner. The smells is perfect almost like cotton candy. The consistency is light but moisturizing, and it has enough slip to allow for easy detangling. It really sinks into my hair and leaves it soft and shiny. I love the fact that it is protein free, glycerin free, and silicone free. I really wish this product came in a bigger size with a pump. I HATE that it isn't available in stores like Target, Wal-Mart, or Walgreens.
I noticed this alone with curl queen gel lefted my hair very dull and drying looking plus it also left a white film. I have learned that in order to use it I must mix it with an oil or two. I used a mixture of evoo and sweet almond oil. I then combine the oil mixture and this leave-in to my hair. Doing it this way helps me gauge how much oil I use(pea size, 4 sections) next curl queen. Awesome wash and go.
I have tried the smoothing leave in, and that was too heavy for my hair. This was perfect! I have 3a-3b curls on the dry side.
This plays lovely with curl queen just make sure you don't use too much if so your hair will be dull looking when dry. I also used a very little evoo as a sealer than the curl queen mainly because I was scared my hair would dull and ashy looking so the oil gave it a nice healthy sheen.
The best detangler and leave-in ever!! The smell is delicious and makes my 3B curls soft and bouncy!
I absolutely love this leave-in. I apply it to soaking wet hair. It detangles and moisturizes. This a on my HG list along with Pattern Pusha & Curl Queen.
I think I am a new Curl Junkie fan. I needed something lightweight that wouldn't weigh down my delicate curls but I needed something major to fight the frizz from the damage I have caused in the past to my hair. This is just what I needed. Bonus, very light smell. I have used other products whose smell followed me all day long. I have sensitive nasal allergies to strong perfume smells and this was perfect. I will be buying this again and trying out other Curl Junkie products.
Great leave-in product and it smells great! However, I will say that my hair LOVES Curl Junkie's Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion more because it is heavier and moisturizes more, which is needed in these cold Michigan winter months. In the Summer, I imagine I will switch back to this one as my hair will not need as much moisturizing.
I have 3c/4a hair...This is the ULTIMATE leave in conditioner for the winter. It doesn't have glycerin or aloe vera which are the two main ingredients to stay away from when there is no moisture in the air. My hair doesn't feel weighed down at all, but somehow this conditioner knows how to moisturize and keep that moisture in. It really doesn't have a smell to it and the consistency is like a light lotion. Do not be heavy handed with this product. Apply it in sections and you should be fine.
This is a pretty good leave-in. The first time, it worked just the way i wanted it to, defining my curls, no frizz and soft, moisturized hair. Unlucky for me that didn't happen the next time i used it. Now i use it under Argan oil, Curl Keeper, body shop wheatgrass gel and liquid gold hair butter. Works like a charm. My hair has to be dripping wet, though. Otherwise it will make my hair a little to greasy (my hair is really fine). But i just love the smell. Although my other leave-in is a little bit better (Sheado honey love hair milk) i would repurchase this again if it wasn't so hard to get where i live (I got this as a present from a friend who just came back from New York).
I am Curl Junkie fan and I had high hopes for this. I used it with a wash-n-go and the results were pretty good, my hair was soft and shiny, but not that moisturized. I did use the leave in alone, I tend to do that when testing new products. I think this may work well with something else, but I have yet to discover anything. I think this product is better suited for a looser curl type.
This I love. I am really 3A--tried this as a leave in first and I think I used too much because my hair came out a bit too greasy though the curls were nice. Tried as a RO and I really love it--left on about 5min then rinse---hair was like butter and it made my coils and curls shine. Very moisturizing. Will try again as a leave in--just use less. Used half of what I usually use for conditioner RO so it is economical too.
This leave-in is very excellent at providing my hair with much needed moisture. I didn't care for it at first but have recently been reaching for this instead of elucence. Both conditioners are excellent but one has protein and the other doesn't.
As the first product I've really splurged on for my 2C/3A hair, this one is good. Dryness is my biggest issue, and this product actually does cause my curl more, and not look and feel as dry. And you actually don't have to use a lot! When they say "small amount", they mean it. My hair is long, almost to my butt, and I don't need to use a lot of it. So that makes it worth the money! Yay!
Very good. It's lite and provides tons of moisture. I beginning to think that my hair enjoys lite products not thick and heavy ones.I'm glad I have 2 bottles.
If this came in a 12 or 16 oz container for the same price, I would buy a ton of it. It provides great slip and moisturizes well, though it doesn't offer a lot of hold and a sealer is definitely needed for my texture. But I'm used to that, so I'll probably purchase this again.
This deserves a 5 star rating. Moisturizes very well has an awesome slip. Will I repurchase? Most definitley:-*
Very nice. Gave me some definition and calmed a bit of frizz. Gave nice shine. I didn't care for the scent but it fades pretty quickly. Also, I have to be careful how much I use because it can make hair a little stiff/product-y if I use too much. Overall I like it and will probably order again.
I really love this leave-in. It left my hair moisturized and soft, the slip was awesome as well. I'm really beginning to love the CJ line. I will definitely be trying more from this line:-)
I love Curl Junkie Products. This light leave-in has good slip, moisturizing and plays with other products. I will definitely be adding this conditioner to my holy grail list!
Hair type is really 2c, but I cannot find how to change it. I have only used this as a RO twice, but my hair loves it. Right now, NE Ohio is going thru the artec vortex with temps today a high of -2 F and wind chill down to -40 F and my hair is thriving!! Granted this is not our normal January weather, we usually hit single digits in the middle of January and maintain them for 2-3 weeks, but if my hair can make it thru this artic vortex this nicely, then it is a tribute to Curl Junkie products! My hair curly nicely after cowashing this morning and my frizz forecast was Lazy Wave Forecast with a dew point of -2 F, and I have soft, moisturized CURLS!!! This is definately going to become a staple in my hair care arsenal.
Love this for my roller sets but when I air dry my hair feels dry and crunchy, could be the cold air. My hair type is 3b/c, naturally soft, medium but thin. When stretch, lenght is passed shoulders. I have lots of shrinkage so my hair is always chin lenght when air dryed. I will order again just for roller sets. Now that it is cold outside. I can do lots of roller sets without frizz and get accused of relaxing my hair until I wash it again. So this gives me a smooth roller set and my hair is silky soft.
I have 3a with some 3B underneath and color (lighten) my hair. This leave in conditioner makes detangling so easily but does not feel heavy on my fine hairs which weigh donw easily. It has a strong smell which I absolutely love, it kind of reminds me of coconut or sweet muffins but you have to like this as it will stay with you during the day. Afterwards my hair felt soft and shiny, think thise one will become one of my staple products. I had a sample of this one and just bought the KCKT but prefer the Curl Junkie Beautifull Curls leave in over this one so will buy it for sure.
And its an amazing detangler that tangles melt out of my hair, and my hair extremely tangley even after 2 days of not washing it. So this is s big help!
Smell wonderful like all of her product, it smells like sugar cookies to me. This is perfect for summer to the butter pack a ton of moisture and its light perfect for spring and summer if your extremely glycerin sensitive!
Great LI with no glycerin- perfect for me in Florida summers. I only use a tiny amount mixed with an oil to seal (I don't need detangling, ever) and its light and doesn't weigh down my curls. The scent isn't my favorite- it's almost nutmeg spicy or something, I can't place it. But, alas, it performs well and will last me a while.
First time using this product and I am in love with it. I love the slip, the smell and the product itself. It left my hair feeling smooth all day. It was easy to finger detangle with it on.. It was definitely worth my money
Hair stats: transitioning, MBL, 4Aish, low porosity, protein and AVJ sensitive This product is AMAZING. I love the fresh, light smell and the fact that the consistency is thin enough to penetrate my LP hair. Although the consistency is thin, it is super moisturizing and provides great slip. The only reason I had to remove a star is the price. Because the consistency is thin, a little doesn't really go a long way, so I can see myself breezing through this bottle. Other than the price, I HIGHLY recommend this leave in. It works well alone (for damp bunning) or under a styler (for twist outs/braid outs). I typically add a bit of my Camille rose hair milk to help stretch this and add to the moisture-level. If you have a courser texture or higher porosity hair, this may not be cost-effective for you because you will need a lot of it.
Perfect leave in for my fine, slightly porous curls! Rich but not heavy, with great moisture! Also love the sweet smell.
When my hair needs moisture, this leave in works wonders. It smells wonderful too. I don't use it every day because most days I need frizz control, and this doesn't do enough to keep the frizz away.
This is my go-to cowash and leave-in conditioner. It detangles my hair in an instant and leaves it soft and shiny. I love Curl Junkie products. They make it easy for me to find great products products without all the stuff I don't want - silicones and protein (my hair just doesn't like protein, although I know other people really need it) in particular.
I've been really impressed with this. I wanted a basic leave-in without protein or glycerin for the summer, and I'm really glad I decided to try this one. All the products that normal give me mediocre results in terms of frizz control, or that are a bit too drying, somehow work perfectly over this leave-in. My curls are soft and well-defined, and close to frizz-free despite the humidity. I'm hoping this works equally well in the dry winter weather, but for summer, this is definitely HG for me.
This was just so-so when applied with CIAB on top. My hair looks better with CIAB alone than it does with this conditioner underneath. I also tried using beauticurls to refresh some frizzy 2nd day curls, and it looked ok until it dried-- it increased my frizz exponentially. I can't do straight oils on dry hair and maybe the butter/oil content of this is too high for me. But the even bigger problem I had with this product is the smell. It dissipated when applied to wet hair, but lingered for hours on dry hair. It smells like a more cloying V05 Hairdressing. Awful and irritating to my allergies/asthma. Will try a sample of a different CJ conditioner as this brand works for so many people and I do like CIAB.
This is an alright leave-in. My hair is soft and shiny when I use it. Never over moisturized... I do have to use more of it than usual for a leave-in though. I personally do not like the way that this smells, but maybe it will grow on me.
love this conditioning leave in!! it never over conditions my hair, is just the right amount of moisture. enhances my curls, adds volume, leaves my hair soft with lots of body. i use this as a leave in and styler in one. the smell is a little sweet, but it dissipates as my hair dries, no lingering smell.
I really like the smell and feel of this product. It goes on smooth and doesn't take long to absorb. It leaves my hair soft and moisturized. If it were more like $12 for 8oz I'd probably stock up, but since it is a little pricey I use sparingly :)
I am amazed that I haven't needed any stylers when I've used this leave-in. I have perfect, soft to the touch, defined, natural-looking (rather than crispy or fake-shiny) curls all day, despite lacking hold ingredients. It must give my curls exactly what they want so they hang around all day. Great stuff!
I just started using the Curl Junkie line of products and overall they're working really well for me. This leave in conditioner leaves my hair shiny & soft, but not weighed down. The only thing I'm not totally thrilled about with it is that it doesn't seem to do a great job as a detangler. I would definitely buy this product again.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this leave-in. I use before applying Curl Junkie Curl Queen Hair Styling Gel. It has so much slip, helps to detangle my hair easily in the morning. I simply soak my hair, apply the leave in, in sections, apply the gel (I can be a bit heavy handed with the gel and it's still ok), then flip, scrunch, blot with paper towels using the same scrunch method, let air dry, two hours later, flip and fluff my hair for fullness since almost completely dry or dry, and voila BEAUTIFUL FULL AND DEFINED CURLS! As I have said in my review of the gel..."It gives me the look of Mixed Chicks Leave-In but with more conditioner/soft curls, and without the junk chemicals. If you like the way your hair turns out after using Mixed Chicks, try this combination, your hair texture might be like mine and you will fall in love!...I've been doing this for a month and still love the results. I'm a product junkie, tried Miss Jessie, Mixed Chicks, Uncle Funky's Daughter, and many more...this is by far the best results I've ever had! Thank you CJ!! = ) @curly206 my last review was for smoothing lotion conditioner - oops, can't delete the old one
Great conditioner, helps detangle well, the only downside is the size. It needs to come in a larger size, since curly-haired people tend to use conditioner often, it's silly not to have a larger size option. @curly206
i love this leave in conditioner, it smells amazing, its creamy and i can feel it on my hair. I even use it on my dry hair on the ends for mid day fixes. Love it and looking into other products as we speak!
I've used CJ conditioners before and loved them. I've been using some others for a while and was happy to get back to CJ. I was disappointed with this conditioner though. I hate the smell (sickly sweet) and the conditioner doesn't provide the kind of slip I've come to expect.
Awesome leave-in. It leaves my hair moisturized without weighing it down. It helps with frizz and smells great too. I would certainly buy this product again.
I wish it were a bit heavier, but this is super dee duper moisturizing - and has good slip for detangling. I love it paired with a gel.
Another one of my HG products. I love CJ and this is just another great product that leaves my hair in awesome condition.
Great leave-in. Was very happy with the feel of my hair. Was not too heavy for my fine 3A-3B curls. Used a sample pack so I will consider purchasing the full size.
I ended up liking this leave-in conditioner once I figured out what to pair it with and how much to use (a quarter-size amount). If I use a firm-hold gel with it (e.g. Biolage Gelee), I get soft, well-defined, and moisturized curls that last all day. It smells great and is easy to wash out. I'd give it 5 stars if it offered more shine, though. People with very thick, course hair may need something heavier, but fine-haired curlies will find that this won't weigh your hair down.
