I recently used a sample of the Rainforest Hair Moisture Butter from The Body Shop and really liked it, except it's a bit expensive and the smell is a bit strong. While shopping today I saw Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Moisture Gro. Has anyone tried this? Did you like it? I don't want to buy it for 14 dollars and then find out that I don't like it at all and that I can't return it... I'm sure I will like the smell, since anything with coconut is heavenly.
I'm looking for anything that will give me moisture and can be used as a leave in.
I would really want to hear some more about it from anyone who has tried it though. These are the ingredients:
Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Microcrystalline Wax (Cera Microcristallina), Petrolatum, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Lanolin, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Vegetable Oil (Olus), Fragrance (Parfum), Benzyl Benzoate, Coumarin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E).
I've read that mineral oil is really bad for curly hair. Is that true? My hair is 2a/b, very dry, and fine.
Any thoughts? Or even suggestions? Should I go with the Rainforest Moisture Butter instead?
