Default SheaMoisture smoothie question...

Would this be considered a leave in conditioner or a styling product...or both?

Judging by the description of your hair, I would say that you might be able to use it as both. I happen to love this product. I do usually add a light gel for a bit more hold (CJ Pattern Pusha or CJ Curls in a Bottle). I have somewhat fine, very porous, 3b hair) and use a fairly light hand with both.

It's a styler, I can't see any of the major emollients (fatty alcohols and cationic surfactants) in there at all it's mostly oils and butters so would be pretty heavy as a leave in.

Hmm, I use just a teeny bit, scrunched into the ends, like leave in. It seems to works amazingly well that way for me. My friend used it the other day to scrunch out her crunchy hair and was super impressed with the results. I think it is pretty versatile.
