My thoughts/experience:
As always, I love that it’s made with natural ingredients so it’s totally safe to be used daily even though I don’t really understand the rationale behind that. Now that I think of it, it doubles as a moisturizer so no harm done. It does the work done as a leave-in. Initially I noticed that after applying and sealing with castor oil, it dried out quickly and so I had to re-moisturize before braiding. But now, I’ve incorporated the LOC method (Liquid, Oil and Cream) of moisturizing which makes it more efficient. The Liquid being the Leave-in. Oil – Castor oil AND CreaM –  Shea butter. Instead of leaving it to dry, I braid my hair in sections almost immediately. That way it lasts longer. With constant use overtime, it has definitiely made my hair softer and more manageable.



My Application:
I apply mine only on wash days after shampooing and conditioning as opposed to daily to avoid product buildup even though it has a light consistency that’s suitable enough. Once in a while, I add a bit to my spray bottle to give it that touch.(JUST for the scent actually…Very tempting)


Worth Noting:

  • Comes in a bottle with a cover that aids easy application and curbs waste.
  • Water is its first ingredient so it also doubles as a moisturiser.
  • It has a very nice sweet ice-creamy smell which lingers for a long while. It’s one of those products that leaves your hair smelling oh-la-la and makes an impression on others.
  • It’s also readily avaliable and affordable. It cost about N1,500 for a 300ML (10.14 OZ) bottle which to me is great.
  • Has a very light consistency which makes it suitable enough to be used daily. It’s more important it’s not combined with so many other products to avoid build-up.
  • Adds moisture and shine to the hair and is great for efficient styling.
  • Contains Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Glycerine and Jojoba which have numerous hair benefits.
  • Sulphate, silicone and paraben-free.

What more can I say? Amazing leave-in with a slight hitch of drying out quickly(thanks to my dry scalp) other than that, it should be a staple.
