For me it stands at the top! I just started my second tub. Aside from Burdock Cream, it's the only one I use on wet hair that I can smooth on my ends over a conditioner and it moisturizes, helps define the curl, and keeps your hair soft and not dry and crispy on the 2nd day. I use some on dry hair for instant softness. However alone on dry hair it can loosen/frizz curl, so I use under Set It Free. It doesn't mix well with Set it Free-- I scrunch a little N&S in first, then a mix of SIF and Jessicurl WDT
scrunched in over that, and can you say moist, and soft, and still defined curls? I revisited Qhemet AOHC and I still think N&S is better for my hair.
Now Burdock Cream is nice to use under Qhemet Honeybush gel or under Knot Today
. Can't do N&S and KCCC
together because it "unravels" the KCCC
hold. And Burdock is also a nice booster for conditioner leave-ins, helping to define. And it does give hair added volume.
Jane Carter Nourishing cream - mehh. I bought some because they were out of the N&S - ended up buying the N&S
Sheamoisture - you need strong hands to get it out of the bottle and patience to let it absorb. You also need a lot compared to Jessicurl WDT
. It's a good leave-in, but I don't use anymore
- I was using only as a hairdress on dry hair, now I'm layering as a leave-in on wet. I can't use it as the only leave in because alone it can break up my curl and shrink it. But layered over a conditioner? Sweet!
And Devacurl Set it Free
! Still use! It's all additive for me.
