Q: Is this product good for women of color with curly hair? I decided to go natural and it seems as though all of the shampoos that I've tried really strip the moisture from my hair.

submitted by Nita - 3 years ago
  • A: Thank you for your question. This Leave-In is ideal for medium to coarse curl types. It won't strip the moisture from the hair as its goal is to replenish moisture.

I love the smell! Also how light weight it is. I usually use “It’s a 10 leave in conditioner” but decided to try this product because it’s a bit cheaper. I love this product so much and will be using for now on out. My hair is super dry and frizzy without a leave in product. This enhances my waves/curls and makes my hair so soft.

Smell is so strong and made my hair feel like straw. I was so excited to try this one but after the first few hours I looked up reviews and wished I read them sooner. I had same results as so many other curlies. Don’t waste your time on this one ladies!

I see this product is aimed at thick, wavy or curly hair. I have medium length, medium thickness, slightly-moderate wavy hair- and I am impressed by this product. I apply my leave-in conditioner, comb it through. Let my hair air dry a few minutes, then spray on this product and let my hair dry naturally. It keeps my hair wavy without drying it out. It also can be applied throughout the day on dry hair. I am VERY sensitive to smells. I don’t notice an offensive scent. If I blow dry and style my hair, I apply this product last.

It definitely has left my hair curly. I used to have a really raunchy wavy look but now this has curled my hair more, and it has a nice smell. People have definitely noticed. I will say the frizz ease is kind of like flipping a coin some days tame some days not but I think my hair is just temperamental and I need to find just the right product for that.

The smell is too strong! It has a heavy perfume smell, I even got a headache from it. It didn’t really do anything so I wouldn’t recommend for that reason alone. It reminds me of the Paris Hilton perfume (iykyk). Also, it didn’t fight frizz or make my hair soft at all. This would be the second reason I wouldn’t recommend this product.

I like the smell and that the product doesn’t feel heavy but it does nothing for frizziness or leave hair any softer. It’s more of a spray not a cream at all. Perfect if you want a $10 bottle of nothing ✨

The smell is a little strange. To me, it smells like when magazines try to have the perfume scents to sniff but it still smells quite a bit like magazine paper? It smells just like that to me. Otherwise it does an okay job as a leave in conditioner. I bought because I liked the packaging and the store was out of my usual one. It’s a good price for the fluid oz you get. I’ll probably buy again if the same situation happens to me.

kharas - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
Pros: the matte bottle is attractive and I do like the scent. Cons: I guess this would be good if you have thin, wavy hair but if you have any kind of thick curl that needs hold and moisture this is a big whomp whomp. I didn't realize at first it's not a cream, it's a spray. You'd need a heck of a lot to actually coat your strands and seal in moisture. It made me very frizzy which is exactly what a leave in conditioner should not do. Much better curl creams/leave ins out there at a cheaper price.
