Effectiveness

I have been using this leave-in conditioner for weeks now (e.g. here, here, and here) and I gotta say I like it. I wanted to try this leave-in because of it’s claim to strengthen hair and ingredients. Ceramides? Hydrolyzed silk amino acid? Sign me up.

This leave-in has helped strengthen my many months post hair, without making my hair stiff. After air drying, my hair remains, soft and fluffy, and during the week I experience reduced breakage during the week, especially at the line of dermarcation between my bone straight ends and texlaxed hair. It also provides a nice amount of slip that really helps when detangling (we all know I love anything that’s detangling friendly!).I have fine strands like love to cling together when I use products that are too heavy for my strands. Because of the consistency of this leave-in and the fact that it does a nice job of sinking into my hair, my hair dries fluffy without clumping or without being weighed-down.

Have you tried this leave-in? What are your thoughts?

  1. I grabbed this during BF and I love it!
    I find it quite moisturizing despite its protein contents. I was surprised by how thin it was but it still gets the job done even though I can be a little heavy handed with it due to the thinness (a vicious cycle lol). No crunchy or overloaded hair in sight.
    I use it on wash days and also for moisturizing occasionally during the week (if I've used a moisturizing leave in on the prior wash day). I'll spray my ends or nape with Vitamin Reign, put some Matani on, then seal with Jojoba Hemp. Soft, moisturized hair for 3-5 days.
