    I've used the HPO Spa Conditioner and really liked it. It has a nice mild fragrance (reminded me of lime or citrus), great slip and my hair felt nice and soft afterwards.

    Twisted Locks ... didn't like this. It reminded me of Hairveda's Vastika Frosting. It is hard like this. I had to use the the top of my nail to scrape some off ... after that it is similar to JCS N&S as far as consistency .. like butter.

    The styling pudding caught my eye ... I'm a sucker for puddings !!! I'm interested in hearing about this one.
    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

    A friend gave me two of HPO's products when I did my BC last year. The HPO Spa Conditioner was okay. It did loosen up tight curls with regards to being easy to apply and detangle hair, suspect it's combo of ginger and lactic acid. But, for 8 oz @ $22 I expect to be super impressed. Like, it just has to woo me better than AOHR that's 11oz for $8-10. I guess I do not like Honey heavy products, especially when they also have protein. Did not buy it myself once I used up my gift.

    She also gave me the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/HPO-Twisty-Locs-p-950.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=hpo-spa-treatments-twisty-locs]Twisty Locs[/buylink]. It smells lemon-limey with more emphasis on the lime, which is nice since I like citrus scents. But, it didn't moisturize my twists, as in give them that plump, full and conditioned feeling I get with other Shea blends. I tried wet and dry twists with it, and although it held the twists well, it seemed to make my hair dry and bit stiff-ish. Possibly due to the combo of Jojoba and Honey and Shea Butter being the only butter. I really need for Shea Butter to be thinned out by another butter and to have oils that are more on the order of Avocado Oil ie. conditioning. Put it this way: I spend $22 for 4oz of Jane Carter Nourish & Shine instead of $11 for 8oz HPO [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/HPO-Twisty-Locs-p-950.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=hpo-spa-treatments-twisty-locs]Twisty Locs[/buylink].

    It might be more due to my hair just not liking the base ingredients if not further mixed/thinned out with lighter stuff. But, this line is no-go for me.

    I must not have described this properly. I definitely didn't find it drying, I just didn't like the texture of the product. The Twist Locs was hard in the container. You have to scrape it out. Once you scrape it out and emulsify it in your hands, it becomes like butter. It reminded me of Vastika Frosting because of the hardness of it until it is emulsified. Jane Carter's N&S isn't as hard as Twist & Locs ro Vastika.

    I prefer the whipped butters for the consistency. They are still made with oils, but I find them easier to use. It is a personal thing though. The Vastika Frosting was raved about here, that was why I bought it.
