Christina tried Obia Natural Hair Care on her curls, here's how it measures up.

Obia Natural Hair Care

Amaze-balls.
Phenomenal.
Awe-inspiring.
Simply divine.

Those are just a few of the words that come to mind when Obia Natural Hair Care comes to mind. You guys think I'm exaggerating -- but I'm really not. I love every single thing about the Obia brand. Why, you ask? Let me tell you.

Curl Enhancing Custard

You know the little "hallelujah" looking Android emoji that folks use on Instagram? That's what pops into my head whenever I see this product. Simply put, I love it dearly. So much, that I've already ordered 2 more jars (and I'm not even finished with the one they sent me). I am a product junkie, and product hoarder. No, you can't have any. #itsallmine

  • Carbomer: A gel-like thickener.
  • Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: Emollient moisturizing protein, also adds some strength to hair.

Performance:

I mean, the picture collage speaks for itself. My curls popped. My edges were LAID. But what you can't see in the picture is how soft they are. I seriously kept touching my hair ALL day. As far as consistency is concerned, the Custard reminds me of As I Am Smoothing Gel - but it leaves my hair much softer. The fragrance is incredibly mild, and almost undetectable. I found that it treated my heat damage with the same love as my curls - no stringy spaghetti noodle ends for me!
