I’ve been using this product for over 7 months now. This is the first deep conditioner that I’ve fallen in love with since starting my healthy hair journey in November 2012. Though I absolutely love this product, I think that I love its sister conditioner, the SheaMoisture African Black Soap Balancing Conditioner a little bit better.
Let’s get into why I love this deep conditioner…
THE SLIP!!! OMG, the slip is so amazing. I am able to finger detangle with ease. Slip is definitely a great attribute that everyone of all textures look for in a deep conditioner, and that’s the main reason why I fell in love with it. Moreover, it’s extremely moisturizing, melts into my hair, and it smells like Banana Now N’ Laters (I guess that is the plantains that I was smelling). Lol.
Its texture is really thick, and unlike many natural products, the ingredients don’t separate. I do use it as a cowash, but not very often. The tea tree oil in it helps to alleviate itchy scalp while the Kaolin and African Black Soap gently cleanses it. At first, I was alarmed by these ingredients being incorporated into a deep conditioner, but surprisingly my hair doesn’t dry out. The only downside is that it comes in a jar, which is easy to waste in the shower. This product is definitely a holy grail product of mine and I highly recommend it for all hair types.
