Default NEW Giovanni Avocado and Olive

On a whim, I picked up this DC (beautiful bottle I must say) and the Direct Leave In to try on my son's 3C medium textured, low porosity hair. I used last night after washing with Dr. Bronners Baby Mild Castille, allowed the DC to sit for the remainder of his bath, rinsed, then smoothed through GDLI and used a nickel sized puddle of Grapeseed oil to seal immediately. The DC smells light, but sweet with herbal hints. It's creamy but not heavy. I think his hair likes this! Ill keep using it and we'll see. I may try rotating the DC with GDLI as a leave in when the cold air hits soon. FYI...I love that the DC has a dose of shea as well!

Anyone else tried this or even seen it yet? Let me know!

That looks interesting......

I Loved the 2chic conditioner until my hair got enough protein. It made my hair extremely shiny.

I had this in my hand yesterday too at Walmart and it smells so good I almost bought it thinking it might make a good replacement for the old formula of GFTN? But I love my Tresseme naturals right now as well and it's cheaper for the amount I get. Let us know if you like it on your hair too.

I was just wondering how this one would compare to the TN moisture. Looks like the ingredients may be similar, but I can't remember if the TN has Shea butter or sunflower oil?

I tried this tonight solo as a 20 min DC after cleansing with CJDF and I really like it. I think I will love it when I add my love, EVOO to it for a DC.

Walmart...I reeeeeaaalllly wanna try it on my hair, but I have an aversion to aloe. However, my hair did ok with aloe in CJCR, and I only need to use it as a rinse out...hmmm....

So I used this as a dc mixed with agave nectar (always in my dc mixes) and I loved it! My hair was SUPER moisturized! Didn't even use my fave leave in today and my hair was soft, springy and smooth... Gonna use it again. My hair really needed this with the low-dews rolling in...

I'm wondering that too. TN NM is the best RO for me, hands down. No matter what else I try, I always find my way back to it. So i'd love to hear from anyone who's used both.

These are the ingredients for TN NM:

Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyrceride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Diemthlyamine, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Fragrance, Caprylyl Glycol, Aspartic Acid, Lauroyl Lysine, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid.


And the Giovanni (re-posted for easier comparison):

Aqua (Purified Water), Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex, Fragrance, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Avocado Oil, Lychee Chinensis Fruit Extract, Olive Fruit Oil, Chenopodium Quinoa Flower/Leaf Extract, Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Sodium Benzoate.
