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.

Not trying to change my 4B texture — just keeping my Afro soft, moisturized and free of knots. This, plus the oil, does the trick.
My husband and I are sensitive to fragrance, and neither of us has any problem with the aroma.
I love the freshness of the mint.
Yes i would purchase this again.

I love the way it makes my curls look so good.
5 stars if this product had less fragrance
StacyMD from Maryland
I love how this product makes my hair feel! The fact that it can be used in multiple ways is awesome and the price is great. I just can't get past the fragrance. I tried using it as a moisturizer on my relaxed hair after blow drying it and loved the results, but the scent never dissipated. As the day went on it left me with a migraine. The scent itself isn't terrible, it reminds me of spearmint gum. It's just too much. I also tried using it as a deep conditioner and rinsed it out but the scent just lingers. Again, I love how it made my hair feel but I just can't handle the migraines.
Best. Stuff. Ever!!!

I didn't expect to like this product as much as I do. I find myself reaching for it more than any other product! The smell is awesome and gives so much moisture to my curls...not to mention the size :) Purchase if you need a good moisturize leave in!
Arla Rea from VIrginia
It leaves my hair feeling very soft and manageable, especially for bleached hair. On my 2nd bottle.
The best of the best
Jazlyn from Texas
I have to say this is truly incredible. I've used it as a detangler and it's great (but make sure hair is a little wet first) I've used it as a rinse out and as a leave in and in all three ways it works!!! My favorite way to use it is as a leave in!!! So much moisture and slip!!! Hard to find such a versatile product. Plus, you get a TON for the money!! This is a staple!
Great minty smell.
Crissy V from Ny
Smells and feels nice to work into hair but it doesn't dentangle well for me. Better to use it as as a leave in conditioner.
Also, Ulta's website made the bottle appear much bigger than it is. But the price is still fair for the item regardless of size.
I definitely recommend someone to try it out bc there are many uses that this product can me use for. One would need to see which one works best for her and etc.
So close to perfect for 3C thick curly hair
Jess from NY NY
This is SO CLOSE to perfect but just not enough moisture. It is really nice but trying to find a product to use to seal it, maybe that will help.

I have been using this product for at least a year as a detangler/prepoo. I've noticed that my scalp starts to itch now whenever I use it. One night, I decided to sleep in it. I usually leave it on for about 20 mins to an hour, so the itching doesn't last long. However, I decided to try something different so that my hair would be extra soft the next morning prior to washing. Apparently, that wasn't a good idea because my scalp has been itching for 2 weeks, even though I've washed it twice since then. I'm extremely disappointed because I had finally found a product that was easily accessible, works very well, and lasts a long time.

My girls have all different curl textures. We range from 2b-4a, so it is important to us that the products work for a wide variety of hair. For the purpose of a leave in (which is all we have used it as) it's pretty perfect. It is definitely tender headed child approved, because of the added slip the comb just glides through the hair. This is impressive with just 1-3 pumps. And it adds an amazing scent and softness. We will never use anything else!
Love the product, hate the smell
Kyla from IN
I really like the consistency and the way it defines my curls without flaking. The smell though, both my son & bf hate the minty toothpaste smell, and so do I. It's too strong. I'd buy it again if it were unscented!
Very moisturizing, minty scent
Livi from West Virginia
I bought this mainly to use it as a deep conditioner, but I have used it as a second-day refresher leave-in as well. It is very moisturizing, and might be a bit too heavy for people with thinner hair. My hair is very dry, coarse, and thick. It definitely keeps my curls from frizzing and I use less of the jojoba oil that I normally style with.
I really like the strong spearmint scent, and it sometimes makes my scalp tingle lightly like mint gum/menthol/biofreeze. I like that, but others might not.
Love love love this product!!
Bri from N/a
This product gives my hair excellent slip. I can leave it on my hair for at least a few days. It also defines my coils.
Alaskan girl from Ak
this stuff is AMAZING omg, I was in absolute shock that it just made the tangles melt away. And it's so moisturizing the only downside is the scent which smells like mint Colgate toothpaste. I used it as a leave in and loved it.
Curly girly from Va beach
This makes my fine yet thick (lots of it) 3c curls detangle in seconds. Hair is seriously smooth moisturized yet not weighed down. I personally find the peppermint smell refreshing and energizing. I used it as a rinse out conditioner (left some in enough to make the water milky) and topped it off with uncle funkys daughter curl magic gel + ag cloud. Wash and go came out defined shiny and clean feeling. LOVE THIS
You need this!
BroJohnsMom from Virginia
I love this leave in! I haven't been able to find a product that moisturizes my hair but doesnt leave my hair greasy. The smell is nice and minty. I have coily,low porosity hair, so I'm excited!
tasfrekeo from California
This product is an everyday use product for me. It works well to soften and detangling my nieces hair as well who is mixed. This is a must buy and I am on my second bottle. The scent is minty which I absolutely love
Best leave in conditioner. Hands down.
J. from NYC
I've been natural since 2007 when there were so little products out there. Fast forward to now when there are soooo many; I've tried them all over the years but NOTHING and I mean NOTHING COMPARES to this leave in!!! My hair loves it! I have no negatives. I also appreciate the fact that I got every last drop out of the bottle. I'm neurotic and hate throwing out a bottle when there's still a tiny bit of product on the bottom.
One bottle lasted me almost 5 months.
Thanks a million Whitney!!!
I love this leave in conditioner
Nia from CA
I use this product and it's very hydrating and leaves my hair silky and soft
Really Nice Stuff
Jamie from Boston
As a biracial person, I've struggled to find a product that's good for my mixed hair. Some stuff is too heavy and leaves my hair sticky, and some stuff is too light and doesn't manage frizz. This stuff is awesome: just heavy enough to provide lasting moisture and a nice gentle sheen, and looks great when you layer more products on top! I personally like the minty smell--it's a bit strong at first but fades throughout the day. The only small drawback is after a couple days it builds up and your hair might look a bit stringy (if your hair's the type to do that). I recommend!
Mom from New York
Love how this product feels when applying it to my hair. Leaves my hair feeling refreshed and it absolutely smells amazing
Works, with no negatives
Coco from Michigan
Good leave-in, moisturizes but not too heavy if your hair needs a litlte to medium type of moisturizing. Love, love, love the slight minty scent. I can't tell you how much I hate perfume smelling hair products so double stars for this product! My hair is super dry, thick and coarse, so I will use this up, but in the end I need something stronger.
Come on now Queen!
Kiki from Miramar fl
I use it for twistouts and just to keep my hair moisturized
Not For Me
Coco3c from New York City
As someone who loves a good 2-in-1 and has very dry hair, I thought I'd love this product. Sadly, it seemed like there was a Goldilocks situation where it was too thick as a leave in but too thin as a conditioner or DC. It also didn't give my hair moisture, which surprised me bc of the great ingredients, and was just a waste of time in general.
