Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!!
I bought this in hopes of giving my thin, dry blonde hair some deep conditioning. I have to say, I am blown away by the results after just one use! My hair is very dry and fine and always tangles especially at the ends. I've tried a ton of deep conditioners and not one has ever allowed me to run my fingers through my hair. Until now! My hair stayed soft, frizz-free and detangled for the full 2 days until I had to wash it again after a workout. Even without brushing the following day, I could still run my fingers through my hair. AMAZING!! Highly recommend to anyone with dry, damaged hair.
Most Helpful Critical Review Works best for chemically/heat damaged h
I bought this product after I watched countless reviews on YouTube and read numerous reviews online, I was excited to try this out especially since you get so much product for the price compared to their other leave-ins/style milks. I tried so many different ways to like this product but my hair was fighting me. I don't have chemically processed or heat damaged hair, but my hair is dry just like most women of color with natural hair. I went through almost half this container unsatisfied before I gave it to my mom, who has dyed her hair countless times and uses heat on it whenever she styles her hair. Due to what she does to her hair, the curl pattern she once had was pretty much lifeless, when she tried this product however it brought her curls back to life! Her curls were soft, bouncy and well moisturized with this being the only product she used. If I were to buy this again I would buy it for my mom, not for me. If you use heat or have used any harsh chemicals in your hair or are newly transitioning to your natural hair, I would highly recommend this. FYI, it smells like black licorice. I didn't mind the smell, my friend hated it. The first day you use this, is when the smell is the strongest after that it fades away and your hair just smells sweet but not overpowering.

The OG formula pre vinegar was the best vinegar should not be used as a leave in it's to acidic and drying I would rather pay an extra dollar or 2 to keep the original formula IF IT AINT BROKE DONT FIX IT I'm breaking up with Shea moisture to many shortcuts and reformulations

I love this product I have low porosity so it helps with the dryness especially in the winter time
Love it , my forever conditioner now
cicilia from undisclosed
I'm new to natural hair. I have 3b hair but very dry on day 2. I use Shea Moisture Manuka Shampoo. Since I started using leave in , my hair look great even on day 4. I refresh with water only.
I have one question though- does it contain silicone?
So far so good

I moved from a cool moderate humidity climate to an area that is near 94% humidity, ocean salt in the air and constant harsh winds. Add to that I am perimenopausal so hormones are depleting causing my hair to be dry and brittle. I tried this product, using a little at first. I saw an improvement but was still dry. I started to use more. I put a lot on, wrapped my hair and went to bed. My hair started to look better. Now I apply a lot after I shower, then a lot at bedtime. My hair went from troll doll wirey frizzy, back to natural waves with volume. If I get too much on my scalp it gets mildly itchy. I will take it because my self esteem and confidence are improved. I've seen products improve my hair, but my hair goes back to dry and frizzy after a while. I hope this keeps working.
Love this stuff

This is my new favorite leave in conditioner. It makes my hair very smooth and gives me the defined curls I want. Also does not leave my hair feeling oily or weighed down. It feels moisturized.

My hair type is a 2A or 2B and I bought this at another store without knowing what hair types it's best for, but it works pretty well with my hair. The first time I used it I put a ton in my hair and when I woke up the next morning my hair was greasy feeling and heavy. After a shower it was fine, but the next time I used it I put a very small amount in my hand and rubbed it together in my hands before putting it in my hair and that worked much better, no more heaviness or greasiness. I like this product and it smells nice. Also, there is a lot of product in the little tub so it will last me a long time.
Works well for curly unruly hair
Nani from undisclosed
My daughter introduced me to this brand, for 30 years no conditioner has done the Job. I was so happy but I'm a little disappointed that the formula change, my favorite was Apple Cider Vinager & Castor oil w/pea protein although the smell was a little different, but I can't find it anywhere. I hope it's brought back.

this stuff has saved my hair. I used to have waist length hair and then i cut it short but growing it back out again.
Same ingredients as play-doh?
CurlyGirl from undisclosed
This product works well to tame my frizzy curls (4/5 stars there). But the scent is that of play-doh! Thought the smell might fade after my hair dried, but it doesn't. I've tried to apply other better-smelling products on top of this one to mask the play-doh scent, but I don't get the same results. I'd only recommend this product if you don't mind stinky hair.
The only product I trust
AshPash from undisclosed
I've been natural for 7 years, and still find it difficult to find products. Most seemed more hype than anything… until I found this!! This leave-in product is the only moisturizer I trust on my hair. It has simplified my routine. Now, I simply shampoo and use this product on most wash days. I have a nice head of hair that is rather fragile, extremely coily 4c hair. My biggest issue is mechanical damage. This conditioner is the only product I've found that reliably detangles my hair, and thus, avoids damage. I get so many compliments. I tell everyone who asks about it. I wish everyone could find a product that works for them as well as this does for me.

Leaves my hair so soft and conditioned. I have straight, fine hair. Nutty smell that I enjoy. Very luxurious slippy and buttery texture
Georgina from NY - New York
I have 3a-3b curls and this is a lightweight product, yet hydrating and softening. I wash my hair one a week and I don't tend to use conditioner whenever is my wash day, I just hob straight into this and leave on my wet hair for a couple minutes and then I start detangling.
I've use this same product, nonstop, for almost 2 years; my only complaint is that there was a time in which I couldn't stand the smell (now I'm inmune to it), this though me, as a scent lover, to have not one but to different Leave-Ins instead just so I don't get cloyed by it.
Does not work on 4C low porosity hair
seesaah from undisclosed
Used it on a small section after shampooing to test it out and it made my hair feel like sandpaper, it had no slip at all and tangled my hair even more.
Salvó mi cabello.
Giovi from undisclosed
Desde que lo incluí como leave-in en mi rutina mi cabello recupero su hidratación,sedosidad,se han formado mis rizos aquellos que perdí por malos cuidados. Hoy después de 3meses de uso ya puedo decir que es un producto que siempre boy a comprar. Ésta línea en particular de Jamaica Black castor oil es excelente.
Muy satisfecha y feliz mi cabello y yo le agradecemos a la marca ,sigan siempre así,en Perú ya somos más quienes amamos a esta excelente línea.
Do NOT use if you have a macadamia allergy
JoCM from undisclosed
I alternated between the smoothie and this product for years, but also didn't know how to take care of my scalp and hair so I had an extremely dry and irritated scalp. I recently purchased this one again and styled as usual and had a similar, if not worse reaction. Learned from my mom that we suffer from a macadamia allergy. The product works great on my hair when combined with the Cantu custard, but the itchy, sore scalp is too much to bear! Looks like another wash day today :(
Is this product being discontinued?
Alex from undisclosed
Like other reviewers, I haven't been able to find this in stores for at least a month and now it's no longer available here are well. It's been my holy grail product for over 6 years, so this is really a huge let down :(
My favorite after-shower leave-in
Devin from Maine
The people who are saying this product stinks are extremely dramatic. Just because something doesn't smell like roses or cupcakes does mean it stinks. This product has a more natural smell which comes from the castor oil. It definitely does not "stink".
That being said, it works very well and is the only leave-in product I use for my coarse, curly hair.
This leave-in does a
shawannam1 from undisclosed
This leave-in does a fabulous job to my curls after a shower. Love , love this product one of the best on the market! Usually with other products after hours of my hair drying I'll have to apply more to keep a nice texture with this product I don't have to do that. So I definitely recommend it! For all hair types!
I really like this
howtolookhot101 from undisclosed
I really like this leave-in conditioner! I have used leave-in conditioner since I was a baby bc my dad has coarse hair, so even tho I have straight hair it's always been a staple for me. Therefore, I feel like I have a lot of knowledge of leave-ins. I wouldn't give it a higher rating bc I do wish the formula was a bit thicker. I also would not recommend this product for greasy, thin, or stringy hair. That said it's a great product and I am (and will continue to be) and repeat purchaser.
I love this leave
bulawaforever from undisclosed
I love this leave in conditioner! It fully restores my hair and keeps my hair moisturizers. I use to have very frizzy hair, but this product leaves my hair healthy and smooth even while blow drying. My hair maintains being straight after blow drying rather than being so frizzy like a clown, highly recommend!
I absolutely love this
radwaibrahimm from undisclosed
I absolutely love this product !! This helped my hair grow and it repaired it from years of heat damage! I think I'll buy the hair mask from the same line because I love it !!
Pro's: it definitely helps
evalyzei from undisclosed
Pro's: it definitely helps with hair growth, moisturizes your hair alot
Con's: has an irritating play dough smell , I felt nauseous while applying it to my hair￼consistency was too thick for me I'd rather have that for hair masks
Great from Alhambra CA
I love this product. I mix castor oil in it for ULTIMATE quench. My daughter has 4c hair and nothing moisturizes like this... and no build up! I don't really care for the smell which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Not a big deal, I still prefer the smell over a loud fruity or floral smell :)
My go to leave
yanibaby from undisclosed
My go to leave in! So I have 3c, coarse, high density and high porosity hair. When I first started transitioning my hair did not like this leave in at all. Now.... my hair LOVES it! I do twists with it and the hydration/shine it gives is amazing! It also does give a tiny bit of hold. I also have the blow out leave in from this specific line, the shampoo/conditioner and hair mask :) I Recommend! My husband also likes these products and he has finer, looser curls so works for many types!
I almost always blow
doras20 from undisclosed
I almost always blow dry my hair but when I don't I put some of this in it and let it air dry and it looks lovely! Absolutely no frizZ.￼
