    I didn't find the Peach Kernel Milk moisturizing at all unless I used it on dry my. My wet hair did not like it, it likes the Dew way better.

    In my hair, both of these are quite comparable and act the same way, but my vote is that the peach kernel milk is a tad more moisturizing than the hair dew in my hair. Just a tad. I prefer the hair dew on dry hair and the kernel milk as a LI on wet hair.

    My hair is iffy when it comes to castor oil and it likes water/aloe based and breathable oils better. That being said, the formulation of the DB Kernel milk is superior as its water, aloe juice, then the kernel oil, coconut, and jojoba vs the hair dew which has water, the castor oil, olive oil, and then AVG. Castor plus olive oil is alot for my hair to handle in one go. I'm just lower in the spectrum of low porosity types possibly. It doesn't sink in and stay when my hair is wet like the DB does. My dry hair likes it alot and I'm not sure what the difference is.

    Interesting...my hair usually hates anything with castor oil high on the list (like the Qhemet AOHC), so I was really surprised to like the Dew as much as I do. I think my hair has a thing for olive oil though...the Peach Kernel acted like a product that had too much oil on my wet hair - no slip, didn't absorb, etc...I guess some things just remain a mystery...I can say that when I use the Dew on wet hair I can't use a lot (which is easy to do because it seems so light) or it won't absorb and my hair will be nice and white lol.

    Great. I'll be spending more money. I wanted to try the DB milk anyway but didn't see it in curlmart. I like the Dew on clean, dry hair. It turns greasy/sticky on wet hair and dries crisp just like QBAOHC. It also doesn't work layered on any other buttery moisturizer.

    On my hair the hair dew absorbs better and is a bit more moisturizing when used on wet hair than the hair milk.
    On dry hair they both provide the same level of moisture but DB's hair milk is a bit greasy to the touch.

    I say get the Hair Dew. While the sent can be pretty strong, the Hair Dew is not as greasy as the Peach Kernel Milk. Both work pretty decent on my hair wet or dry.

    I'm scratching my head at this grease factor bc the consistency of mine isnt greasy at all. It absorbs rather quickly IMO. I have the glycerin free version, but I think that has liitle to do with it. Perhaps its formulation/batch issues?

    Mine was the formula with glycerin, for the record. Perhaps that's the difference - sometimes glycerin can make a product feel greasy (even if it's not truly grease), so perhaps glycerin + all of the oils in the product makes it like this? Just wondering.
