-Coconut and Habiscus conditioning curl and style milk. The scent is the same as the shampoo I mentioned previously. This milk is not as thick as the KBB hair milk. It felt sort of watery think of this as gel mixed with a VO5 conditioner and a small amount of water. It's not thick at all. My hair had some shine to it BUT it felt and looked dry. I won't re-purchase.
- Shea butter Restorative conditioner. The scent of this product believe it or not is similar to the honey conditioner from the body shop. This conditioner left my hair soft but I would not use this as a leave-in. The verdict is still out on this, I will update once I use it again.
I have super thick hair,low porosity. I think my hair texture is coarse. I am protein sensitive. My hair is not a big fan of shea butter and these products are loaded with them. My hair may not be the best indicator on whether or not these products will work on others. The scent on these products linger and I have issues with overbearing scents. Eventhough the scents of these products are strong the yucca and aloe scent is the better one out of all of them. The african black soap line smells musky. The mositurizing spritz are not moisturizing I put a small amount of my hands and my hands were rough I did not feel like spraying this on my hair. I don't think I'll re-puchase. I will stick to Darcy's and my Surge deep treatment. HTH
I think because you have low porosity hair and are protein sensitive that may have been why the products were not so awesome. I have high porosity and my hair soaks everything up and I can actually put protein in my hair like once a week without my hair telling me off (lol). Hopefully as they expand they will have different formuals for more hair types.
I hope they will have more formulas but I won't be in a rush to purchase. I think it's great that the products are working out for you.
