My Thoughts

I am so happy I was able to get my hands on this product! Ever since I returned back to my curly hair I always heard great things about it. This might even be “up there” with my love from CoilyHeadChick ♥. The consistency is thin but it is perfect for my fine strands. Just be careful that you aren’t heavy-handed. My hair literally stayed moisturized for a whole week.  It was not sticky. This item comes in different fragrances but the scent that was sent to me was Pomegranate Guava which smells sweet and yummy. The scent is not overpowering ( I would know since I am pregnant).  What I really enjoyed about this leave-in is that it played very well with different gels.  (Please see combos below)

This leave-in also plays well with products of its own line. (You’ll see a picture later in the post). The slip that I get from this leave-in is AMAZING! So amazing that I can finger detangle and not use any other tools. I can definitely see myself re-purchasing this product in the future once I run out. I just love that it is protein free and I now have a second leave-in for my rotation.

My Thoughts

This product for me was “so so”. I do not hate it but I will not be adding it to my Holy grail list. It has great slip but I found myself using alot of product for each section of hair. I was almost through half of the bottle on my first wash which is not good. Once I washed this DC out my hair felt “ok” not like wow it is so soft but it sure was not dry. I would like if I am paying $25 for a product it  to be bigger size. The consistency for me was not to thin not too thick.  It had no scent that I can recall. Overall this was an average Deep Conditioner for me. I’ll use up the rest but I don’t see myself repurchasing unless it is on sale.

 Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream 

Price: 6.7 oz $16

Product Claim: HYDRATE & STRENGTHEN. Works best for: Thick kinks or curls, relaxed, color treated or dry hair. Great for hair and scalp

My Thoughts

I only have one complaint about this product. And it is that it gets a little gritty like Oyin’s Burn Sugar pomade after some time. Besides that I REALLY LIKE it. I wanted to use this product thinking that I was going to get “hard hold” for my twist outs, but instead I received moisturized soft hair which I loved. (Below is a picture of a flat twist out using KBB leave- in together with KBB Super Duper Hydrating Hair Cream)
