Back to the review...

The Cons:

Its very thick and so is my hair and it takes a lot of the product to apply to my hair from root to tip.

The Pros:

*It smells yummy!
*It gave my hair that slip it needed!
*It softens my hair like nothing else!

It is a staple product!

Small Update

Hello. Just wanted to update what I did to my hair. I added small-medium size box braids to my hair a week ago. There is no added hair extensions. I came out pretty well. I kept trying to take photos of the look but got so bust and kept forgetting. I washed my hair twice so the style is a little worn out now. Sometimes I will twist or braids them to have to wavy look, or I would wear them straight, and there is times i will bun them up. If I decide to redo them I will make sure i take pictures. I'm using my same hair regimen with these braids so nothing has changed. Except I moisturize more often now. Maybe 2-3 times per day. So that is it for now. See you in the next post.
