Jul 15, 2014 - As stated in another review. I had just gotten my hair braided, so I used this on my 1 year olds hair, as his texture is just like mine. I actually like the heaviness of this product (it isn't that heavy). It seemed to elongate my son's curls instead of causing shrinkage,and it defined the curls as well. Both he and I do well with products with some weight to them. It also hydrated his hair very well. I would definitely buy and use this product.
