Rating: 2 out of 5
Product Promise: Made with pure shea butter and other natural oils to stop and mend breakage, repair split ends, and add manageability and shine with every application.
The Review: I caught this on sale at Rite-Aid last week because I’m looking for a new leave-in conditioner. Needless to say, I should have left it on the shelf. The first red flag should have been when I read the claim that it will “repair split ends”. Negative! If your hair is damaged, there is not one single hair product that can help you repair a split end. I digress…
This product had plenty of good reviews from my fellow bloggers, but it just didn’t work for my hair. The only thing I liked about it was the smell. I used it as directed in place of my normal leave-in Lacio Lacio. It has a thick cottage cheese consistency that did absolutely nothing to moisturize my hair. It just felt too heavy for my hair and the build-up was ridiculous. No special detangling powers either, just a waste of my money. I’ll probably give it away.
