Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing Detangler and Leave-in
I was extremely skeptical about this product after seeing reviews that it was very lightweight/thin. I am a thick, heavy cream girl. I like my hair to remain moisturized for 1 to 2 weeks after wash day. I also don't care for products that claim to do 10 different things amazingly. Anyway, I tried it with the complete set the way it was recommended. I decided to restyle a old twist out using this product to detangle as a leave-in. It was WONDERFUL. This product has so much slip. I usually detangle when I apply my deep conditioner since it has slip. This is also because I usually don't like the ingredients or effectiveness of detanglers on the market. This one is amazing. It was sooo easy to work through my strands and it defined my curls. I could tell it was moisturizing my strands, but doubted it would last. I used this with the Twist Elongating Cream and the Multi-use Pure Oil Blend. My hair was so soft and moisturized but LIGHT. I was really confused, since I'm not used to experiencing that. For me, lightweight products/hair = dry hair. I couldn't keep my hands out of it though. I used more of the leave-in than the cream and oil blend, so I decided to had to buy more of the leave-in - as a detangler if nothing else, but to keep exploring. The moisture did not hold for a full 2 weeks, but it definitely held for a week.
I should also add that I am heavy handed with products, but a little went such a long way with this line.

My hairs feels so moisturized and soft!
Laquanta from Columbia SC
I use more as a leave in conditioner and a styler until I get my other melenin products I've order on line.
It's amazing...not so surprising!

Naptural85 is an OG YouTuber known for whipping up hair concoctions, so it's no surprise that this product is amazing!!! It's smells so good and detangles in a breeze while moisturizing and adding shine. I've used it on my 4a/b coily hair AND my daughters 3b fine yet extremely curly hair with great success. This makes daily hair care a breeze!
I will buy this product again...and AGAIN
Jay from GA
This product is EVERYTHING...its my all-in-one hair product for my 4c hair. I love how it moisturizes my hair and my fingers just glide right through as I detangle. It definitely melts the knots away. I also love how this product doesn't contain shea butter because shea really irritates my scalp for some reason. I bought one bottle initially and when I realized how much of a gem it was for my hair and went back and purchased 3 more bottles! I need to keep this product in stock at home and I will! Buy it, you won't regret it.

I've been using the curl smith line for years now, since deva curl wasn't working out any more. This by far is the BEST leave in/deep conditioner I have tried.
Michelle from Charlotte, NC
This conditioner is great! It melts right into the hair and makes detangling so easy. I didn't even have to use a detangling brush/comb. It definitely makes your hair feel super moisturized and soft after shampooing. I will say though, for me, I needed to add another cream/styling product to add some additional hold for a twist out. Normally, I can do a leave in conditioner and gel and be good to go, but this one isn't really thick enough. Not a downside, just a thing to keep in mind.
I really wanted to love it, but....
Teeka from Maryland
The first thing I did was smell it and that's where I stopped. I wouldn't even put it on my hair. I always check ingredients before buying and with spearmint at the very bottom, I was shocked at the strong mint smell. Food or candy is fine, but I don't want my hair smelling like Trident! Whitney, please change the smell!
smm from new york
Seeing one star reviews due to the smell of this product alone is not a fair review. It is an AMAZING and high quality hair product, and the smell is not as terrible as some make it sound. It is strong, and the best way to describe it is as a pack of spearmint gum but it does WONDERS for managing thick hair. If you know you cannot tolerate that smell then read previous reviews and don't buy it. I washed my hair on a Wednesday and detangling was a breeze. My my hair was still sooooo soft and moisturized still on the following Sunday. I have been transitioning from a relaxer for over a year now and needed something new and do not regret it. This product is worth every penny and I am super satisfied with it. Definitely recommend!
A Must Buy!!

Keeps my hair soft and supple not greasy at all.
This is a STAPLE
Baby Ruth from Columbus, OH
I use this product as a leave-in conditioner and to rebraid my hair
Pitt Panther from Washington DC
I can't tell if the product works well or not because I'm so distracted by the strong minty scent. Why anyone would want their hair to smell like spearmint gum is beyond me. I'm all for supporting Black owned businesses but I will not buy this again unless they come up with a new scent.
A natural dream
KhiM from Indiana
This leave in conditioner is one of the best. It's a soft smelling refreshing conditioner that leaves the hair supple and easily manageable.

Love this leave-in. Used it on my sons hair and wash day was a breeze. Smells amay
Best Leave-In for 4B/4C Hair!
Dawn from Brockton, MA
I've tried at least a dozen leave-in conditioners on my 4B/4C hair and this is by far the most moisturizing one yet! Considering that the consistency is light, I did not expect it to be moisturizing at all. Boy was I wrong! My hair stays moisturized for at least 3-4 days with only a daily spritz of my water, leave in and oil mixture.
I also love the minty scent! Whitney aka Naptural85 has a winner with this leave-in! I can't wait to try the twisting cream.
definitely buying again and again

the hype over this product is real. so many uses. i used as a conditioner and leave in. makes it super easy to detailed hair. def with the money.
I would buy this product again.
Jennifer from Chicago,IL
My hair feels good, tangle free and soft. I like the multi purpose use of this product. I mostly use it as a prepoo or leave in conditioner.
I like this conditioner a lot
Ijogi from Toledo,OH
I use this product as a leave in and for added moisture as needed between wash days. The consistency is thick and creamy, but not heavy. It is very lightweight, so I wish it was a bit thicker, but maybe that is just what I am used to. But that makes me hesitant to use it as a deep conditioner. I love the minty smell. I love the smell and feel of tea tree oil products in my hair and scalp so this was right of my ally. It's not as pungent as tea tree, which gives it a mild, cooling fragrance that make my hair smell great hours later.
Ny from Ohio
I use all of Whitney's Melanin products on my boys' and girl's hair for the past 6 months. We all have different textures of hair from loose curls to tight kinky curls. It keeps our hair so moisturized. Also, a little goes a long way!
I would definitely buy again and the rest of the line.
CHAR7 from Thomasville, Ga
I use this to removes shed hair and as a leave-in. I love both ways. My hair was so soft. I will be buying again and again. I want the entire line. I will be going back to get the shampoo and oil.
A Great surprise
O Erica from Virginia
I was definitely surprised by the effectiveness of this product. Hair immediately felt and looked full of moisture. My daughter has thick type 4 hair and it's always difficult to find good products. This left her hair feeling so moisturized and it had ok slip. I'm a fan!
Jay from Baltimore, MD
One of my favorite hairlines. I love how versatile this conditioner is! You can use it as a detangler, leave in, or even for twist outs. My twist outs are coming out just as sleek and defined with just this conditioner and paired with the multi blend oil. You're also getting A LOT of product for your money. Highly recommend.
Jennyvjo from Georgia
The bottle says multi-use and it was not lying. Everytime I put this on my hair my curls instantly melt. I have used this as a conditioner after shampooing, a deep conditioner for overnight treatments, and a leave in. It works!
So worth the price
Taliyah from Trenton, NJ
This has to be the best leave in and rinse out conditioner in one product. I have many products in my stash, and trust me I have a lot... LOL.
But seriously this left my hair so soft after washing I honestly did not have to deep condition, and it melted my tangles after washing making it sooo easy to detangle. This has become any instant fav, I'm so impressed.
Softest my hair has been!
Between4A&C from San Francisco
Used it twice for a twist out and braid out for a week in between washing. Hair was super hydrated, bouncy, and defined the entire time!
Good product, but the smell gave me a headache
