    Since I complained bitterly about my prior orders, I wanted to report a MUCH better experience this time around. I guess the third time is the charm! The website says that it will ship in 7-14 days. Mine shipped in 14, which is certainly better then the 42 days it took it to ship last time. I think they are having it "manufactured," because of the high demand. Hopefully, it will improve the customer service as it did for my latest shipment.

    I tried my sample of this today. I love the consistency and smell of it! :D

    It worked really well and I was surprised how light it is for what is in it. I found it to be as light as GLI when applying and light than CJ leave-in. With all the butters and oil in it, I expected it be to much heavier.

    I applied after using a kathymack soap bar, and CJ Moisture Theory condish. My hair is very soft, shiny and bouncy. :thumbup:

    Whatsercurl, can you 'splain me a little more how you used it? I have a sample that I got from the company a few months ago, and I haven't really tried it yet -- I'm not sure how to use it. Did you use it as a detangling CO or as a leave-in? And about how much did you use?

    (I need to use my sample it before it gets much older, but honestly, I don't want to fall in love with it because I've found my HG Co, I have a brand new tub of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink], and I'm making my own FSG now -- I don't need another product esp one that I have to order, and order by the magnum!)

    I used it as a leave-in about a quarter size blob raked then scrunched in.

    And the size of the bottle is pretty intimidating for sure! I probably wouldn't use a half gallon in my lifetime. LOL

    This stuff is nothing short of amazing for my hair!!! :D

    I've seen mixed reviews but I've used it three times with incredible results.

    I was mid-wash cycle yesterday, so water rinsed (as an experiment), didn't use any rinse out condish, then raked and scrunched in two quarter size blobs of AD, then raked in CJ smoothing gelee and a scrunched in tiny bit of BRHG. My curls were uniform, consistent and virtually frizz-free. They still are today. And more volume but not poufy just fewer bare spots.

    So apparently my fine textured, medium porosity hair loves butters:

    water, avocado/mango/shea butter, vitamin E, avocado oil, lecithin, green tea extract, orange extract, CitroZine™ (Organic) as a preservtive, natural fragrance.

    Does anyone know the shelf life of this stuff? On their site the Jug is supposed to be a 4-6 mo supply but that would be using it the way they instructions say. Obviously someone with finer hair or looser curls would never go through that jug in 4-6 months :laughing7:

    They use CitroZine, a synthetic preservative--it should last a long time.

    Previously, I used it as a leave in and curl creme. This week, I used it as a rinse out--and it worked well. That should help you go through it a little quicker.

    Many years later -- ! -- and I cannot find any recent information about  a source for Afro Detangler. Robin's old site, growafrohairlong, has vanished. It took me years to try this product again and find out how it works for me, and it's been my favorite for a long while now. I want more -- and of course, whatever works best for me disappears from the market or gets a formula change. I haven't come to Curl Talk in ages -- greetings all! Anyone still out there?? Anyone know where I can find more? Thank you!
