I've ordered from curlmart 4 times this month and everytime I've gotten this as a freebie. I havne't tried it yet since I have so much other stuff to try. I figured if they are giving it away so much that it must not be too good

Others have been so-so to yucky.

Ironically, the big-name brands (Matrix Curl Life comes to mind) have been lousy so that it seemed their freebies were intended to get the word out but were such bad products that it wasn't advantageous since so many nc.com-ers hated those products. But the smaller companies (Jessicurl, Curl Junkie, AG) who have provided samples have gotten to introduce curlies to their products and that technique has been advantageous to them.
