    The only thing I liked about this product was the scent.  :( I tried it as a styler on my WNG and on braids for a braidout. In both cases my hair was dry and overly coated and there was no real stretch to be seen.
    4b/4c/4a + 20 years + nearly every natural hairstyle including locs = IT REALLY IS JUST HAIR. And I love mine! :angel9:

    Love this product, so moisturizing and smells great! But I do add water and vegetable glycerin to it to thin it out to help my low porosity hair absorb it. I have not found a gel it pairs well with yet. I've tried eco,wet line, fantasia, curling gel souffle and a few others.

    Oh yeah I forgot to add, using this with the curl enhancing smoothie would be redundant and probably over kill. Both are a thick styling cream and can be used similarly.

    Is this the red palm oil line? I found this to be one of the few SM products my hair doesn't hate. It was given to me at a hair meetup event as I would not have bought it.. I still almost gave it away without trying it. I think my hair likes it because it doesn't have coconut oil. My hair easily absorbs it. I only use a very small amount. I don't have any problems using it with ecosyler perhaps because I use so little. I decided to try the leave in and I actually like it better. I can use slightly more of it than the pudding without becoming weighed down. 

    My hair hates SMCES. It's way too thick for my hair. I think I have had some that's been in my cabinet for years. I Really should toss it. I was also given SMJBC leave in at that hair show. I haven't opened it. I have a feeling it's not going to go well in my hair.  

    Forget what hurt you, but never forget what it taught you.

    This product was not used by me. However, I've heard from a friend that this is perfect for hair. I'm now busy with my work sugar ants. I'll put it to use when I finish my task.
