I have been using this leave-in conditioner for weeks now and I love it. I love the way this leave-in smells, a yummy soft lime scent. HH’s products in general always smell great. Somedays I secretly hope she’ll decided to create hair mists and sell some of my favorite scents.
As for it’s consistency, it has a nice, creamy consistency that easily absorbs into my hair.
Because I predominately air dry my hair nearly 100% of the time, a good leave-in (for me) is one that leaves my air dried hair adequately moisturized so that I can avoid having to use any additional moisturizer and avoid weighing down my hair. Thankfully, this leave-in does just that.
On application, SCM absorbs well and provides some slip to aid with detangling (which I have appreciated during this relaxer stretch). My hair dries soft, light, and SCM does not leave my hair feeling coated. I tend to be heavy handed with products and if I’m not mindful I end up applying a bit more than is necessary but even so, my hair still doesn’t feel weighed down once it’s dry.
I especially love the lasting moisture I get from this leave-in. Among my staple moisturizing leave-in conditioners, there is currently a tie between SCM and Pura Body Naturals Murumuru Moisture Milk, but I have been using this one more often because it helps me detangle my hair better than PBN Murumuru Moisture Milk. In comparison to my love time love Darcy’s Botanicals Daily Leave-In, I’ve grown to like this leave-in more. Y’all know how long I’ve been using and loving DB’s Daily Leave-In so that last sentence should make you gasp lol.
