Rated 4.31 out of 5 stars
I genuinely do not understand the poor reviews of this but then perhaps it is because hair can differ so dramatically. I have very fine, straight hair and my holy grail haircare product was discontinued. Ever since then I have been on the hunt to find the best possible replacement. I kept looking at sprays because the formula I had loved was a spray but after getting a suggestion from one of Ulta's helpful haircare people I decided to give this cream a shot. It's slightly more inconvenient to use than a spray but other than that I love the outcome. It's smell is light and pleasant and it makes detangling my hair really easy. Once dry my hair is nice and soft and not a bit oily. It may not be enough if you have thick or course hair but if you have fine, easily weighed down hair then give this a shot.
I used it on my damp hair and right away when I rubbed it in between my hands I could tell it was not going to be hydrating and that it had too much fragrance/alcohol in it. When I ran it through my hair once I immediately noticed that there was no slip and that it made my hair feel dry as if I barely used a drop of the product when I used more than a quarter sized amount! Def not worth the money, there are much better and cheaper options out there, my faves are kinky curly knot today and camille rose moisture milk!

I love the smell but I have to use only a small amount of the product otherwise my hair becomes super heavy and greasy. Really really want a scent only of this product

I have used the pink and green version of this a while now and love it. I can't find that one anywhere now so I got this and it smells SO different. Please change it back! This new formula isn't the same.

This stuff is magic. I wasn't sure until I started drying my hair and forgot to put it on, so I decided to do just half of what I had parted out to see if it even made a difference. It does! I am able to save time and skip the flat iron without looking like a hot mess!

BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL IN THE PINK TUBE

My son request this cream leave in. He cut thick long hair and having issues managing thick short hair. He really likes the fragrance.

makes my hair feel refreshed after washing

I had such high hopes for this but was let down. I loved the price point, but it just didn't work for me. I have type 3 curls, medium porosity and density. It was SO HEAVY. No matter how little I used or even diluted with water in my hand, it had my hair swimming in grease. I never apply higher than midshaft but it didnt seem to matter with this. I can go a week and a half without washing my curls and it still doesnt look greasy. With this, a few hours into wash day and it looked like i hadnt washed in weeks. Will be returning.

This is a great leave-in that does exactly what it says on the bottle. Yes, it will feel greasy if you apply too much product, don't work the product in, and don't have high porosity hair, but that's a technique problem. I use 1-2 pumps for my chin-length, 3a hair and apply more once it's dry if needed.
The only issue with it is the smell. It's so strong that I'm taking off two stars. It's not necessarily a bad smell, but it is headache-inducing. I wish this line would come out with fragrance-free products.

I'm a 31-year-old guy with very thick somewhat wavy coarse hair. I think this is the first product I've used that has left my hair soft throughout the day. I wish it were sold in a larger volume & not too crazy about its fragrance. it's not overpowering but I like my hair products to be unscented because I already use colognes.

Would buy this product again.

This product smells super nice, but when it comes to moisturizing the hair, it doesn't do a great job. It has some nice slip and can detangle your hair quickly, but it doesn't provide any protection from the elements and my hair feels dry throughout the day.
Jayda from Charlotte, NC
I wouldn't recommend this leave in conditioner for fine/straight hair it leaves my hair super heavy and greasy as if i havent washed it at all. This may work better for thicker curlier hair though
KT from Texas
Looks like this new formula works best for kinky curly hair textures.
Hannah from Pennsylvania
I like it! I use it when my hair us damp and it definitely does help with frizz. The only little issue is that once my hair dries down it feels a little dry :/
Joannna from Cape Coral, Fl
It works amazing. I love how How soft it makes my hair feel. I totally recommend this product. I couldn't find it anywhere else. I'm glad Ulta Carrie's it. Totally worth its money.
LB from Florida
This doesn't even compare to the original in the pink bottle, MANE TAMER LEAVE IN CREAM was SOOOO much better!
Litzy from Green Bay, Wi
I never write reviews but this completely deserved it. Ive always had an issue with frizzy and dry hair and this almost completely flipped that in my first use. Granted, i use a leave in conditioner too but there was still an extremely noticeable difference first use
Please bring back the old Satin Dream!!! from Canada
I used the old Satin Dream Leave-in Cream for many years. It was THE ONLY one that worked for my hair. I've tried pretty much everything thing else out there, spent hundreds looking for something, and nothing compared to the old version. It was by far superior. This new one is terrible, heavy, greasy. I'm deeply saddened.

I used the original for years. It brought my once dead, overly processed hair back to life. It didn't weigh it down my semi fine and very straight hair, but it did really smooth and softened. I have used MANY hair products, mostly much more expensive, still this has always been top pick. So, after getting highlights I decided to pick this up again, and I'd be better off to buy a $5 suave leave in. It's heavy and not even smoothing? I loved the argan oil on the original, idk what snow mushroom(?) and poppy seed does for the hair, but it's not for me!!
Annalyssa from Las Vegas Nevada
Really loved this product. To everyone whos saying it makes their hair greasy maybe youre applying to much, on the bottle it states use small amount. Or it just doesnt work for your hair type! Left my hair feeling amazing! Definitely recommend! Dont knock it till you try it!
Sienna from North Carolina
So at first I used a full pump of product and I woke up and my hair was SOOO greasy not even after 24 hours of washing. Then I came back and read the reviews and used less than half a pump and my hair was still so greasy the next time I tried it. Packing is great and smells fine but this product didn't work for me.
SCNana from Myrtle Beach
I'm sorry I tried the new formula! If i could give this zero stars I would!! It's horrible! Bring back the original formula!
Laurf from Chicago
I have very long straight hair, but a lot of frizz if I am not brushing several times a day. I have tried everything from different shampoos, conditioners, leave ins, etc. this is the first product that actually detangles and defrizzes!! My hair is so soft and smooth after I use this and even several days after. It is amazing definitely give it a try.

Frizzy hair air dries nicely
Purple Drapes from Miami, FL
What have you all done!? EVA NYC, you had a star product. A gem! What in the world is this stuff? It smells fantastic but that's about it. My hair is disgusting. I washed it and it looks greasier than when it was dirty. I am distraught. The original was the only leave-in that I actually liked. I can't believe how terrible this reformation is.
