Directions: Can be used as a daily moisturizer for those seeking soft manageable hair both kids and adults. MuruMuru Moisture Milk can be used to detangle hair in addition to adding a much needed boost of moisture.

Ingredients: water, murumuru butter, BTMS (behentrimonium sulfate and cetearyl alcohol), castor bean oil, palm oil, avocado oil, chamomile extract, vitamin E, phenoxyethanol, capryl glycol (paraben and formaldehyde free preservative), fragrance and/or essential oil.

Packaging: I really appreciate the fact that this moisturized is packaged in a blue, light blocking bottle. Like amber bottles, blue bottles also protect its contents from light degradation.

Fragrance: This moisturizer is offered in two scents: Lemongrass Blend and Tahitian Vanilla (unscented is also an option). I purchased the Tahitian Vanilla. It’s light and doesn’t trigger migraines for me.

Consistency: It has a creamy consistency that sinks right into my hair, which is always appreciated.


How I’ve Used: Leave-in conditioner and moisturizer.

Effectiveness: I bought this after A. Rice – check out her hair story here – sent me an e-mail because she thought I might like this moisturizer and thought I might want to take advantage of a sale that PBNaturals was having at the time (I have the best readers!) I’m always up for trying new products and remembered that my hair likes many of the products that A. Rice uses so I took the plunge. 
I’ve been using this moisturizer since the beginning of September and it has bumped Darcy’s Botanicals Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme out of the number one spot.  Even though DB’s CLTC is a good moisturizer – it moisturizes and absorbs into my hair well – Murumuru Moisture Milk has just been working a bit better.
On application, this moisturizer sinks into my hair very well. It does not leave behind an oily feel and helps keep my hair moisturized for 2, nearly 3 days after using it. It also works well on my new growth. I love that it doubles up as a moisturizer and leave-in for me. This is actually the first moisturizer I’ve used as a leave-in that my hair actually likes. I’ve tried HairVeda Red Satin Moisturizer as a leave-inand it didn’t go well (but as moisturizer it’s nice). That one made my hair feel very coated. I’ve also tried Silk Dreams Mocha Silk Hair Milk as a leave-in and it left my hair a bit stiff, but I love it as a moisturizer.

As a leave-in, Murumuru Moisture Milk doesn’t weigh my hair down, sinks in, and it provides lasting softens as my hair dries. I love it for air drying but because of it’s creamy consistency I don’t think it would work well for me as a leave-in when roller setting.

If MMMM working so well will I continue to use CTLC? I doubt I will. With MMM I basically get two products for the price of one that work a bit better . . . more bang for my buck.

Have you tried this moisturizer? Like it? Love it? Left it? Or what’s your favorite moisturizer?
