My Take: I was almost shocked by how much I like this! I used it initially to work through the tangled, matted mess that was London's 4a/b hair. She is tender headed, and worse than that, a total drama queen and she has a THICK head of hair! Using this made an impossible task way easier for both of us! Not only did it provide the necessary slip to get through the tangles, it was rich and creamy enough to add a beautiful sheen, visibly improved the texture, and sealed the ends of the two strand twists I put in her hair. What's more, while most products that work for her hair tend to be too heavy for my own (3b) hair, this worked beautifully in mine too! I use it at night and wake up to soft, shiny, bouncy curls. AND it smells so good!
