My Assessment: This is Hairitage Hydration’s first water-based moisturizer and I think it’s a pretty good first. I’ve used it for a few weeks now and I like it. It has a very light consistency and absorbs well into my hair. It has a pleasant citrusy scent that doesn’t linger too long. I keep the heat set between 80-82 degrees (I hate being cold) in my apartment and haven’t been using my humidifier (shame, shame). Needless to say, the air in my apartment is pretty dry, so I was a little worried about the glycerin in this product (when their isn’t enough moisture in the air, glycerin will pull moisture from our hair) but because it’s listed as the last ingredient I don’t think there is enough of the product to cause any issues; it hasn’t dried my hair out at all. After sealing with Hairitage Hydration Coconut Mango Moisturizer (check out my review here), my hair is soft and moisturized for hours, just what I need when I’m out or in my dry apartment. I also love that this moisturizer doesn’t weigh my hair down. Even after moisturizing with it every day, my hair isn’t heavy, my strands aren’t stuck together. The Cocoaloe/Coconut Mango combo has been giving me moisturized hair and shine, shine, shine. Here’s the link to a picture I posted a few weeks ago after moisturizing and sealing with these two. While this moisturizer doesn’t replace Darcy’s Botanicals Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme (side note: that product name is too long) as my number one staple, it’s still a good moisturizer to have and rotate.
