I'll edit this post on my thoughts on the products I bought.
I'm not one for using leave-in conditioners, but this was REALLY something. The best slip I've ever had, and although it's not marketed as a rinse out, I used it for exactly that because I prefer to detangle before I wash/DC. My hair felt really soft after rinsing it out. I'm going to have to stock up on this before I get back to college. I may have found an addition to my HG list (which is hardly even a list). Seriously, I am still in awe.
Afrotastic Curl Elastic Deep Treatment
WOW. WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!! LOVE this stuff. Freaking. Love. It. Like the knot sauce, it's nice and thick (I had a hard time squeezing it out of the bottle), smells good, and made my hair feel moist and soft, soft, SOFT!
After applying the product to my damp hair, I covered it with a plastic cap and sat under the dryer for 30 minutes. Then I let it breathe for another 15 minutes before taking of the plastic cap. My hair felt great as stated above (also felt the same after rinsing it out). Also, this makes for a nice detangler. My hair tends to tangle whenever it's in its fro state, so even after the initial detangling and washing, I have to detangle AGAIN (not as bad though). I had no problems raking my comb through my hair. My hair is drying nicely. A definite repurchase.
Kinky Silk Tress Milk
: Smells great... that's about all I can say. It's a bit thin so I will see how this works as a 2nd day moisture product.
Marula Muru Moisture Guru:
I like it so far. It doesn't leave a greasy residue like some thick moisturizers I've used in the past, so I can use a lot and not actually have to worry about my hair feeling icky. I've been twisting for the past 4 hours and the front part of my hair is dry. It feels really soft--not as soft as when I rinsed out the DC but still good enough. I could see myself repurchasing this--but in the spring time. Unfortunately veggie glycerine is a bit high in the ingredients list so I can't use it for a while.
Loc N' Roll Twist & Fro Out:
It's okay. Provides a decent amount of shine, smells weird (not in a bad way), and doesn't leave a greasy residue on my damp hair. Using it for a twist-out on perm rods... will post more about the results later.
UPDATE: Took out the perm rods and twists today. My hair came out looking nice and feeling soft. Again, still not sure if I will repurchase the butter and moisturizer. I will see how I feel about them over time.
