    Hmmm, If I recall I noticed in NoodleNaps siggy that she replaced it with Oyin Hair Dew. I have tried the same thing. It doesn't quite make it for me, but it comes very close. I also really enjoyed Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Conditioner. Again, it wasn't the same but it will tide me over nicely until I pick more up.

    Oyin Hair Dew wasn't even CLOSE for me, not moisturizing enough. I'll give the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner a try when I'm out. Thanks for the recommendation!
