Low porosity 3C/4A, high density, long hair and this was a dream. The only problem is, I was counting on the "LOTION" part of this product to give me a good surge of lasting moisture - it didn't cut it for me. It has incredible slip, a great scent, not much product is needed and my hair was cloudy soft, but the moisture doesn't last. It's definitely better at the moisture game than KCKT, but the key descriptive words "great base..." should be taken to heart because I need something to follow this & quench the thirst all day.

Ladies, this stuff is the truth! I have bra strap length 3c-4a hair and this leave-in moisturizes and detangles like no other. I apply this on washed and conditioned hair, then seal with coconut oil. It leaves my flat twistouts defined and shiny. If you have had problems with KCKT being a good detangler but not very moisturizing, give this a try. It's the best leave-in I have come across yet. Trust, I've tried them all.

Definitely a holly grail product. Love it. My favorite. I use this one first and then "curls in a bottle". The only problem is that it's really expensive.

My profile says 4a, but I'm actually a low porosity high density coarse 3c. And this stuff is AWESOME!! I couldn't stop touching my hair. It felt like I had a soft fluffy cloud on my head. This is now my staple leave in.

I'm on the fence with this product. My hair reacted the same way it did with kckt. I expirenced a lot more frizz and it doesn't seem to moisturize that much. I'm putting this one to the back burner until my hair gets to a longer length or I might just sell it. I hate holding onto products that aren't performing as promised. I just don't know why my hair is so picky when it comes to certain products. My hair loves curl junkie ciab, rehab, beauticurls leave-in as well as curl queen gel.

By far my favorite leave in. Fragrance is pleasant and not over-whelming. Adds moisture without being too greasy. I can put it in my 3B hair without it getting weighed down. A little bit goes a long way, so I don't feel too guilty spending the money on this product. It is a must have for me.

This stuff left a sudsy feel to my hair. It smelled ok, however I'm not really big on how good or bad a product smells. I care more about if it does what it is supposed to do. In my opinion it was jut "OK". I will keep it and switch up with myKinky Curly Not Today leave in. It's much more moisturizing for my hair. Overall i'd give it 3 stars however the price brings it down to 2. Not a fav!!

I use this as a leave-in and detangler on my daughter's 3c hair. I normally wash her hair, deep condition and then use the CJ Smoothing Lotion to braid her hair. This product adds so much moisture! I also use it as touch up product and when I take her braids down, the results are gorgeous!

I use for my day 2 or 3(rare). I begin by detangling with a large comb, then I spray water all over my head, I crunch my hair with the microfiber towel and then use this product. It really changed my days 2!! No more bad hair days. Curls are well defined, no frizz, and it smells good.

Sorry, from previous post, I used the Elucence conditioner BEFORE I used the CJ Smoothing Lotion.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

I just left a review. After I posted I remembered that I used Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditoner and sat under the dryer for 20-30 minutes with a plastic cap after I used this. This is a great combination! both are super moisturizers! But I do think that the conditioner added a ton of moisture before adding the leave in. The leave in made it more manageable and had great slip and also added a lot of moisture. BOTH are now staple products.

This is now one of my top 3 leave ins. Before I tried this my top 3 were Eden BW, SheaMoisture Leave in, and Loreal EverCurl leave in. This has bumped Loreal and SheaMoisture (yes SheaMoisture has a leave in in select Target stores) and if i had to pack only one in my suitcase, IT WOULD BE THIS!!! Ladies, I had so much moisture with this. And it was strange, for the first time ever i didn't have to rewet my hair to finish my twists. It seemed that my hair was retaining the water that was already there. This is a great detangler and it doesn't have a bad smell. It smells great! This is definitely one of my staple products. AND I AM A TRUE PRODUCT JUNKIE!! I have other leave ins in the back of my closet that i don't like as much as this, and that includes the infamous Knot Today :)

Oh word, y'all like that smell? It smells like someone's grandma. To get a specific, it smells like a grandma who wears a tons of florals but has no flowers. smells like that grandmother's baby powder. I'm not feeling it. I don't know why I'm using this product, it feels a lot more like a type 3/high porosity product and I'm type 4/low porosity. So it leaves white residue on my hair. Still, it gets 4 stars, because I'm not mad at this product, and I think it's a good leave-in tbh. I just need to find something more for my hair. Plus it's lasted me forever, so seems to be worth the money. Helps a ton with detangling.

my other HG leave in( KCKT), i use it sparingly in cooler temps.(my hair can be tempermental with glycrein) super moisterizing, amazing slip! always consistent results. love the scent, sweet cotton candy, not too strong and doesnt linger. a little goes a long way. my hair is BSL and use about a nickel size on 4 sections. 1 bottle lasts almost a year.well worth it

Rating: Product Rating: 3 Curls

I absolutely HATE this stuff in my wet hair!! I use the super soaker method in my 2c/3a hair, and it just doesn't work - it weighs it down and I get no curl. However, it is absolutely amazing on my dry hair! I don't know why it does this, but it works for me a dry styler. The scent lingers for a while - I'm not a huge fan of powdery scents, but it's not horrible. I plan to use up the bottle as a refresher on 2nd and 3rd day hair, etc. but I will not repurchase.

I have 4b/4c hair and this product yielded amazing results for my twists. I used just this product for my two-strand twists and everyone who saw me thought my hair was professionally done. It's a great product; however, I felt like I needed to add an oil to my twists for a shine aid once I had finished my style. So, it did not provide my twists with shine, but the slip and moisture agents are incredible. I will always use this product when putting my growing hair into protective styles.

Love the slip and moisture this product gives. I also use this as a daily leave-in. This is a keeper!

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

I know my name says I'm a 3C but I'm actually a 4b. This product is amazing. The climate I live in is very very dry, so I need A LOT of moisture. This is a great leave in conditioner. The slip is an 8/10, I combine it with a carrier oil combo I make myself. It has a pH of 4.5-5. I normally wet my hair with a spray bottle of water, and apply this once a day or once every 2 days. I literally don't understand how someone with 4b hair would not love this product. For some perspective, my mom and my aunt used this product and were impressed. Whereas they tried the As I Am coconut cowash and Double Butter cream and hated it

I love this stuff!! I am transitioning from relaxed to natural.This is the only product that moisturizes my hair for days. I use the CJ Smoothing Lotion as a leave in and a moisturizer. It is a great detangler, and it defines my curls.

Rating: Product Rating: 4 Curls

EXCELLENT. That's all I can say. I am a Curl Junkie yes, but I don't like all of their products. I find that they work best when paired with something else from the line. But, this one I have used behind many different products as I am a PJ. But, I keep getting consistent results. My kid has type 3 and I am type 4 this is one of the very few products that can be used on both of our hair. Minus one for the price, but I am willing to keep paying it.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

Great smell (light vanilla-creamy), great slip, great results! I was a little leery of this bottle because of my experiences with Curl Junkie Daily Fix Cleaning Conditioner (thicker consistency that was hard to get out of the bottle after it was half-empty), but it works fine because this is a thin lotion. It lasts a long time too. I only takes a quarter-sized amount to coat each of my four sections. Will re-buy and recommend.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

OMG I love this product! I am sold! I have 3c hair and this makes my curls look amazing everyday. I have been struggling with frizz and this drastically reduces frizz. The first time I used it, it put way to much in. I wear my hair in braid outs most days and I am amazed at how little of this product I need to use for my shoulder length hair. So many other products require so much more product, but this is a perfect balance for me. I will definitely be trying their other products.

This product does wonders for my hair. I've tried many, many leave-ins and this is my favorite one! I have rather thin hair and this product never weighs my hair down and it makes it look full and long (some other products seem to make my hair shrink). I love the scent and how it makes my hair feel. The product never makes my hair feel crunchy. The size is also great - the bottle is pretty large so it lasts a while.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

This has to be the slippiest product I've ever used! Far more than Kinky Curly Knot Today. Slip in my rinse out is important, but I actually think it's more important in my leave in. If I've detangled my hair in the shower, I want it to stay that way to preserve clumping. It keeps my hair moisturized, but it's light enough on the oils not to weigh my fine, low porosity hair down. It has a lotion consistency, as the name implies. I used to use this product alone, but as my hair has gotten longer I've needed a gel over it. It work well under gel, I think in part because of how light it is. I've tried other leave-ins, especially cheaper ones :p, but nothing compares. I've used this product since March 2013.

Love this leave in conditioner. Leaves me hair soft with lovely waves. It does stretch them out a bit and so not great for the very wavy look.

Rating: Product Rating: 3 Curls

I wanted to love this product so much since so many other had great results....but I found it 'ok'. I tried it on my hair and my daughters hair (6 yrs). She had better results than I did. I was able to comb through her hair without 'much' issue. With my hair, it really didn't do anything special. I don't think I will buy this product again but I will finish out the two bottles that I purchased on my daughter's hair. I would of liked more slip.

I really love this leave in conditioner. I tried it because I always wanted to try a Curl Junkie product, and after an empty bottle I love it. It is a very light conditioner but I find that I like that. I usually enjoy thick creamy consistencies but this gives me so much moisture. I am starting to like the fact that is light and my curls love it too. I am glad I made the switch.

My hair is SUPER curly, so much so that its a challenge to tame. These curls are everywhere, all shapes and sizes. This product helps to smooth and clump my curls together for a beautiful style. I must confess that I am a product junkie, so this review was written with much scrutiny. I apply this product to my wet or dry hair. I place a bit of this product in between my thumb and pointer finger. I then smooth out my curls by applying this lotion and then twisting my hair around my finger, the result, bouncy, shiny controlled curls. You can follow up with a styler if you wish for added definition and hold.

Rating: Product Rating: 4 Curls

I love the smoothing lotion! It makes my hair feel so good and smooth. I usually put it on right after washing or cowashing, then put coconut oil or grapeseed oil on after that. I wish this came in a bigger bottle like the curl rehab or deep fix (also amazing)! Until then, I'll keep this in stock. Love, love, love this smoothing lotion. I only gave it 4 stars because it is a small size and still $20, kind of expensive for me. The larger size would be worth the money because it lasts way longer than the current size.

This is the second CJ product I have purchased and I love them both. My hair responds well to this product and I used as a leave in. I was able to detangle easy and it mxed well with my styler of choice. I really liked the results I got, the look and feel of my hair. I really will plan on repurchasing this product!!!!!!!!

Rating: Product Rating: 2 Curls

It has great slip and really helps to detangle, but thats about it. I find the sweet vanilla scent too much: if I can smell it the next day-or 2 or 3-as well as anytime I use a spritz of water to reshape my 3a/b curls, then I don't like it. If I want sugary sweet vanilla perfume, I'll get some. With this I can't wear any perfume because this sticks with you. I used it without any gels at all, only as a leave in and I got beautiful curls. By the end of a rather humid day (52 Dew Pt) my hair had lots of little frizzy curls. I tried using a little to smooth our the frizz, but it didn't help. Maybe it works better on drier days, which we have a lot of here. I'm going to try it next under a gel and see if it will neutralize the sweet vanilla scent and give frizz control.

I have been wanting to try this product for a while now. The price is what led me astray! I have never spent $20 for a hair product! Ever! I always felt like people are dumb to spend that kind of money for just one hair product?! But I would say that I have a very curious mind.......so I said it does have very high reviews for 4b hair.....so I decided to order it. Surprisingly it does work really well. It has that slip that KCKT, has but it is far more moisturizing. The minute I put it on, it instantly allows for easy detangling. Anyone that has 4b hair, knows how fustrating it is when your coily hair entangles with other strands, sometimes causing knots. This products helps and I can tell it will last a long time because like other reviewers have mentioned----you don't need alot to do the trick. 4 stars because of the price!

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

Absolutely love it. It keeps my hair so moisturized. I used as a leave in and it works wonderful for detangling as well.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

It's just a good, moisturizing leave-in, with good ingredients, and consistent results. I keep a 2-oz bottle in my purse to snag frizz from humidity attacks or smooth and seal if I want to take my hair down unexpectedly, and I keep the big bottle in my shower and apply just after I turn off the water. The results are smooth, soft, and shiny--but I do need a little bit of a "boost" product over top if I want optimal curl formation. Not sure if I'll rebuy, or experiment to find similar results at a more palatable price point. Worth mentioning, however this sits with you, that the cotton candy smell is . . . noticeable. Not to my taste at all, but others have complimented the smell, so it's really just a heads up for those of you with similar fragrance feelings!

This would have been a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the glycerin! I love the way this product works as a leave-in. It instantly softens the hair and it provides lots of slip to add in detangling. I tried it as a moisturizer and I didn't enjoy it as much. Maybe because I used too much product, it left my hair crunchy. As for the glycerin, because the glycerin content is so high in this product, it will dry your hair out in low dew points. You can't use this product all year round :(. Now I have to find a non-glycerin leave in that provides the same slip or softness.

I absolutely LOVE this product! My 2b/2c hair is thin and dry and this product definitely gives it strength and shine. I use it as a leave-in conditioner underneath the coffee coco light cream and I have great results, my hair has never been healthier before and gets a lot of compliment. As mentions in other reviews, even if it is a bit on the pricier side, it goes a long way. My hair gets pretty much to my shoulder, I have had this bottle since last May and I'm not done yet! Will definitely buy it again! Plus I really love the smell.

This is a lovely leave-in conditioner. It definitely lives up to its rating and description. The smell is mild candy-like or a baked good, sweet. The ingredients are good, too. My oh my, CJ products are expensive, but I can deal with that as long as their quality and performance stays super-high, Happy Hair! P.S. I use lots of different leave-in conditioners, I switch leave-ins every time I wash because they reduce tangling and perform optimally that way for me. I rotate this CJ smoothing lotion religiously with Paul Mitchell the conditioner (available on ground), and KCKT.

This has officially been added to my HG list. I am mad I didn't use CJ products before now. I have really soft curls and they tend to get thirsty and dry. I use this after I apply the CJ Argan & Oil Conditioner and its a match made in heaven. My hair is moisturized, my curls are elongated and silky with no frizz. This also plays well with other products and I top it off with Darcy's Botanicals Cocoa Bean Smoothing Cream and I have no residue, flaking or stickiness. I am able to have frizz free curls for 3-5 days & I use it to also refresh my hair. The smell to me is fine. It's not very strong. I have a sensitive sniffer and have been known to not even consider a product due to the smell. I just wish this came in a bigger size!!

While this was easy to distribute and it softened my hair, the frizzies still came back by evening. It wasn't too heavy nor too light, which I liked. I would have given this 3 curls if it weren't for the scent. It was unpleasant and so strong that even my boyfriend commented on how "weird" my hair smelled. I nearly got a migraine at the end of the day! ):

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

The first time I used this I used too much product and wasn't happy with the results. I personally use liquid leave-ins usually so it took me a few attempts but once you get the amount just right, it'll do wonders for your curls. A little goes a long way for my 2C waves!

I am a big propionate of leave-in conditioner! I was so excited to find this product in my quest to find the best products for my Type 2A hair. I have used other leave-in conditioners, but I would have to say this is one of my favorites. With every leave-in I asses several things: How it makes my hair feel, Is it heavy and Does it make my hair appear oily or stringy? Well I am happy to say that this is a light creamy product that left my hair feeling silky, hydrated and didn't weigh my hair down. Plus it smells amazing!

This product makes me giddy! I have type 3c/4a hair that is prone to frizz. I used CJ Smoothing Lotion before applying CJ Curls in a Bottle and finally got the smooth, frizz free curls I always wanted.

I have 4a texlaxed hair and the smoothing lotion is wonderful at moisturizing and smoothing my curls/coils. It's light and does not create buildup on my hair. I use it once a day and when needed twice a day. I wear a lot of braid outs and this works wonderfully to help define the wave and to keep my hair tamed. I love the Curl Junkie line as a whole and have purchased almost all of their "protein free" products, but the smoothing lotion is my go to leave-in and definitely #1 on my hg list.

I wanted to like this product so bad b/c it's by Curl Junkie. The smell was too strong for my liking and it dried out my type 4 hair. The next morning my hair felt like straw. It's also kind of thin in consistency. My guess is maybe this happened due to the product containing glycerin. Which now I know my hair doesn't like. If your hair is sensitive to glycerin, be careful when using this product as it may dry out your hair.

The 1st time I used it, I was NOT pleased because I expected more "slip". My hair is thick because I have a lot of strands of hair on my head, but the actual strands are not thick or thin and my hair is very dense and coily AND MOISTURE STARVED. I used it as a Leave In. I like strong smells, so I'm okay w/ the scent...I braided my hair, let it dry, then put it in a huge bun and it was still moist 2 days later...but I did reapply a tiny bit on day 2...I then added the Curl Junkie Rehab and all I can say is that it's clear that the two work together as a pair...I'm sticking to these two as my staples and the only thing I MIGHT add on "wash n' go n' comb my hair" days is a little KCCC (Kinky Curly Custard).

This was excellent as a follow up to the Smoothing Conditioner and/or Curl Junkie Rehab Deep Treatment>>>I had great results using this prior to using a moisturizer and two strand twisting my hair. It was easy to use on my hair as my fingers glided through my hair for finger detangling. I dont' like that it has propylene glycol in it but its way near the end of the ingredient list. I do like that its glycerine free and protein free. If I had to compare this to some other great conditioners then I would say that it is up there with the Oyin Handmade Hair Dew and my Qhemet Biologics Moringa Conditioning Ghee.

I had alot of slip, smelled yummy, and a little went a good way. What I did not like was that it would get frothy if I applied too much to my wet or damp hair, and I used under Curl Queen and my hair looked dull with residue.It made a good rinse out conditioner though.

I really like this leave-in. It kept my hair very soft and really defined my curls. It's a little pricey but worth it. I'm purchasing again :)

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

the best leave-in conditioner i've tried. nice slip. extremely moisturizing. sinks in like butter on my very low porosity hair.

I like this product! I little does go a long way. I used it alone and with other products. For example, I'll use it alone for my ponytail (it gives light curl definition) and under KKCC for full curl definition. Makes my hair feel soft and managable. Not a staple product for me BUT a good product/ purchase nonetheless :)

This is my HG product, for my new natural hair, i love it, my transitioning hair is soft and touchable. I'm definitely going to purchase again and again.

Really nice basic! This leave-in moisturizes nicely, and isn't too light or too heavy. It doesn't do anything really special, but it does its job and it does it well. This is definitely something I want to keep around.

I have been looking for a staple leave-in conditioner that would leave my hair feeling soft, light, and smooth which is why this product will be my one and only leave-in product. My only issue is the price, but as long as I can fit this into my budget it will be a significant part of my hair regimen.

This stuff is absolutely amazing! It's the only leave-in in my opinion that can even compare to how moisturising KCKT is, and also has the same (if not more) slip! I have extremely thick hair, so whenever I apply a leave in I have to apply a LOT to cover all my hair. This spreads really nicely, so I've found my bottle has lasted a long time - a hell of a lot longer than KCKT. It can be used under my trusty KCCC without leaving any weird residue, and it smells lovely. BUY BUY BUY

FAAAAAANTASTIC for detangling!

I love this product. It smells like warm sugar vanilla. I apply this product to my hair dry or wet and my curls turn out soft and defined.

I absolutely LOVE this product...it smells yummy and a little bit goes a long way. I use this as a leave-in on my 4b/c hair and it gives my hair really nice slip and its so easy to detangle my hair. This is definitely a keeper...I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is thinking about getting it!

This is a great versatile conditioner. Works great as a leave in...lots of moisture and slip. I like it even better as a rinse out. It is light but super moisturizing for my fine, 3a/b curls. I get great detangling, with frizz free curls and it doesn't weigh my hair down. Another great product from Curl Junkie. Love it!

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

The most moisture and slip a conditioner can offer. A little truly goes a long way so I do not mind the price. Great as a rinse out and detangler also. I love a versatile product. This product was just different from other conditioners. Curl junkie just has some good products period!

I finally got this product to try out as I have been at my wits end with Northwest frizzies! I have really fine hair with lots of curl. Day 1: 3 people today told me how beautiful my hair looked. I can't tell you how amazing that is after the frizzy freak outs i've been having. It feels REALLY SOFT, and not heavy. I still have good curl definition at 9:30pm. I used it when my hair was sopping wet, not even towel dried. 2 sizeable dollops, raking it into my hair with my head turned upside down, under the CJ Curls in a bottle, which i used on some twists. I still think i have some frizz, but SOOO much less. i think i'm a little oversensitive from the craziness of the last couple of months. We'll see how it holds up in the rainy weather.

This smoothing lotion works well on my hair. I use it as a leave-in and it detangles my hair very well, and leaves it extremely moisturized. I also love the scent of it- vanilla, and cotton candy. It's a light product, so there's no worries that it will be heavy on my hair, or leave a sticky coat.

Rating: Product Rating: 2 Curls

I also really don't like the smell...

Rating: Product Rating: 2 Curls

I have short, 3b/c VERY fine and healthy hair. I love the daily cleansing cond. from this line but this didn't do it for me. Left my curls dull and weighed down. I am growing my hair out right now and will try again when it gets longer. Leave-ins are just too much for my hair it seems.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

Such an AMAZING product! I have used it both as a leave in (underneath another styling product) and as a styling product and I LOVE it both ways! It makes my hair feel like silk. Also, it works wonderfully at defining and moisturizing my curls as well. And, it even helps with keeping my curls from frizzing up too. It does have an artificial vanilla-cotton candy scent to it. But, it is not overpowering. And, it does not bother my allergies at all. This is one product that every curly girl or guy should have!

I use this product in conjuction with Kinky-curly knot today and Jessicurl oil blend after my shower. It creates a lot of slip for my hair. It does what it needs to do, and helps with my frizz! I never give products 5 curls, unless they are a miracle in a bottle.

This product may be a little on the expensive side but believeeee me, it's more than worth it. I got a free sample of this product and I absolutly love it for my 2A hair. Never before has my hair felt so soft or been so shiny. 110 percent happy with this product. Looking forward to buying the full size :)

Este producto es excelente, deja mi cabello super suave, estoy en el proceso de transición a mi cabello natural y después de buscar en varias marcas, por fin encontré un producto que no reseca mi cabello al aplicarlo el segundo día y los días siguientes al lavado. Lo seguiré comprando definitivamente

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

Yeah, second day hair that looks and feels good!!!!!! I had been using Aveda Be Curly Curl Control and they discontinued it. As I bought up every left-over bottle I went in search for a replacement. Eight wasted attempts and then Smoothing Lotion. Ahhh; success!! I mix this with some Tweek by Curly Hair Solutions, apply to dry hair, and my hair looks and feels great. Today is the fourth day after wash and style and it still looks pretty good. I am glad they discontinued the Aveda product; this one is even better.

FANTASTIC! I've been looking for about 4 years for a product that would restore my hair back to normal and would enable me to have slip even when my hair is dry. All other products I've tried so far lost their slippery feel as my hair dried, so by the next wash my hair has a tangled mess and looked like it, too. With this, I can easily run my fingers through my hair each morning to untangle it without any breakage and without "frizz-ing" my hair!!! I even tried it without any other styling products and still got frizz free, moisturized, shiny, slippery hair! AMAZING! Plus, a little goes a looong way! Def worth the money! I've never been so happy with a product - they were all ok, and I could see the value added, but... not dramatic chances, like with Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion. Highly recommend trying it!

Very nice smoothing and detangling lotion or wet or dry hair. Leaves hair feeling very soft and moisturized. I prefer this lotion on fresh twistouts under Curls in a Bottle and to re-twist with but not so much for wash n go days. My hair swelled/poofed a bit too much as the day wore on after using this lotion under CIAB on wash n go days.

Detangling my hair is no challenge using this product. This is my first time using it, but definitely will not be my last. Without a doubt, it levels the alternatives.

Hands down most AMAZING product i will never ever be out of this. Great slip and moisture! Feels great on my hair. Ahhh I am officialy in love!! Fe

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

Love, love, love this product. It made my hair feel amazing and I swear it cut down on how long my hair takes to dry. I can only use this in spring/summer because of the glycerin but trust I will be using this up until the dew point drops.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

Wow!! I love this product!! I like that you don't have to use a lot to put on your hair. This is very helpful for me because I have thick hair. I use mines as a leave in conditioner before I put my styling prodcuts on. I also like the smell of this product too!!

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

If I could give this product 10 stars, I would. It's worth every penny and a little goes a very long way. It literally melts in my hair and is the only leave-in/detangler/refresher that i will ever use from now on. If you try it, you're sure to love it. It's the best...no exaggerations...

I can’t say enough good about this product. I am a Hispanic girl who is a product junkie, always on the search for the best product for my 3C dry spiral and wavy hair. After using Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner (which is a fantastic find on this site), I used this leave-in. A little goes a long way you don’t need much. I have shoulder length hair and only needed a dime size amount for one section of my hair and then another dime sized amount of the other section. It smells great. I applied to my hair in scrunching motions, and used my blow dryer with diffuser to dry my hair about 70% and allowed the rest to air dry. When my hair dried it had shine and hold (not the crunchy kind of hold but the soft flowy hold!). I haven’t seen my curls look this good in ages. My hair smells great, my curls are moisturized and defined. I will be buying this again. Again keep in mind that a little goes a long way, so I expect the bottle to last a while. I now have my 2 hair staples (Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner to detangle and hydrate while I’m in the shower and now this great leave-in product.

I love this lotion!! It left my hair really soft although I don't have much (currently a TWA), but this was all I used after I washed my hair! The only reason I didn't give it 5 curlies because I want to see what it does when my hair gets longer, but I love it so far!!!

I've only used this product once and I am in L-O-V-E! Its moisturizing, gives great slip, and smells like heaven. I've been able to do twists that come out without any frizz and I don't have to use a ton of product. Even after a hot (80 degrees), windy day, my curls are still flawless. I'm even willing to budget the hefty price tag into my hair budget.

Absolutely amazing product. I LOVE this product. It has amazing slip and makes my hair feel like silk. And you don't need a lot, I use about a nickel size, sometimes a little more, and thats more than enough. Will definitely be repurchasing this.
