Can't stand the play dough smell anymore!

Hey All,

I've been using SheaMoisture's Jamaican Black Castor Oil leave in and love what it does for my hair, but the play dough smell has been getting worse and worse. I smell like a daycare all the time!

Any suggestions for a similar leave in that does not smell like play dough?

    When I used the JBCO mask and rinsed it out, my hair still smelled like play-do all day!

    Do you mean similar in consistency? Similar in the mix of moisturizing and protein strengthening ingredients?

    I mean similar in terms of moisture and protein. The consistency is fine, but my hair just feels good when I use this leave-in.

    This is quite funny because I bought the shampoo from that line the other day and was just thinking how much I love the smell lol. It's subtly sweet and quite floral. I wonder if it smells different from the leave-in? Or maybe I just like playdough ;)

    What if you added an essential oil, like peppermint to it? Would that mask the bad smell?
