A reparative leave-in conditioner that softens and detangles hair. Nourishes, moisturizes and supports elasticity so hair resists breakage when detangling. Conditioners provide a protective layer that improves the appearance of split ends. Peppermint oil stimulates the scalp for an invigorating experience.


Apply to clean, towel-dried hair. Work a generous amount of product into hair from root to ends. Comb through for even distribution. Do not rinse. Apply more to longer hair at the end of problem areas. Can also be used as a rinse-out conditioner.

How Did It Do?

I’ve been using this leave-in conditioner for a couple months now and I love it. I’ve used this leave-in for curl formers (this post), twist outs (like here), braid outs (and here), and flexi rods (and here). It’s a creamy leave-in that provides slip and detangles my hair. It definitely helps me finger comb through my hair a bit before switching to my jumbo rake seamless comb if I have to. I really love that despite it’s creamy consistency it sinks into my hair on application; nothing is worse than having product sit on top of your strands and stare at you. It also has a pleasant fragrance that isn’t too perfume-y. Most importantly this leave provides moisture (even though I wish it provided a bit more moisture) while strengthening my hair but not too much so as to cause crunchy hair.

This leave-in is definitely a staple for me. Even though the large jar lasts a while I made sure I picked up some more while Shea Moisture products are currently buy one, get on free at Walgreens.

Sidenote, why is the name of this product so darn long?
