Apr 13, 2014 - I have 4a, fine low porosity hair and this conditioner actually makes an amazing leave-in! I discovered it while using the "hotel size"away without my HG products, and purchased the full size once I returned. Compared to other popular leave-ins I have used, Aveda Rosemary Mint consistently maintains the moisture and texture of my hair with little upkeep. It's smoothing performance is comparable to KCKT and Abba's discontinued leave-in, but it is way better at absorbing, elongating, clumping and hydrating. I have been able to forego using KCCC and just style with the conditioner and some pomade (Oyin Burnt Sugar) on the ends. My baby nieces fine,4a hair agrees with this too and the moisture survives playing, naps and into the next day. One less star because it may not work as directed (conditioner) for those purchasing for that purpose. Overall, I have learned that salon quality products are best because they produce consistent results. Yet, many are full of ingredients that do not promote moisture for textured hair. I cannot speak to Aveda's other products, but with the Rosemary Mint Conditioner, I know that my hair won't just look good for a day, but thrive and stay hydrated. FYI, The ingredients do not include glycerin or keratin anymore.
