Apr 22, 2014 - Initially upon first using this leave-in, I was sorely disappointed. But I kept seeing this product pop up everywhere so I decided to do some more research on how to better utilize the product. And let me tell you, YOU MUST USE THE RIGHT SYSTEM FOR THIS PRODUCT TO WORK. Before, I was like the majority of other people who left reviews here and I got the same results as them. So I got samples of the other mixed chick products and added my own deep conditioner into the system, then put the leave-in on my hair and pinned it in sections over night. So I used the deep conditioner, the shampoo & the leave-in & I woke up with lovely, soft, manageable hair with nicely formed curls. When you don't use this product the right way, it will produce lackluster results. This product is also super dense, so a little bit goes a LONG WAY. A lot of people here are complaining about it leaving their hair sticky/flaky with residue, this is because too much product is probably being used. I have a TON of hair and only needed 2 quarter size amounts to double coat my whole head. It has a slightly coco butter scent, which isn't too bad. The system balances out everything so that it strips your hair of everything and adds a heap of moisture and definition, so without the proper enrichment, you're not going to get all the benefits from this product. So choose carefully and be ready to have all supplements necessary if you're going to invest in this pricey leave-in. It's a great alternative if you don't want to use foam/gels anymore to revive your curls.
