Though it is a detangler and pre-shampoo treatment, it can be used as leave-in. It also has a nice, fresh scent, and detangles as promised.

My only problem with it is I used 75% of the 8 ounce bottle. My hair is predominantly fine and tangles easily, so I either have to use a lot of detangler or the detangler has to be potent in small amounts.

Still, it is a quality product. If later, it came in a liter or gallon size, I'd be tempted to buy it.

For me, this product gets 4 out of 5 curls.
