My Review:

Smell -  Slight Chemical Coconut Scent   Consistency -  Liquid   Slip - Low to Medium

I've tried so many curl refreshers in the past, but I have to say that this one has a good amount of glycerin in it that my hair loves in the summer. My curly fro always looks shiny and well moisturised when I use this in the morning. Be sure to not use too much though, because it can get a little on the greasy side. 4 out of 5 combs.

My Review:

Smell - Tropical Coconut Scent   Consistency - Very Thick   Slip - Medium

This is my favourite product of the bunch by far. If you have a thicker very dense hair, this product may be your answer to the perfect twist-out or wash-n-go. I would apply this product and detangle with great ease. Not to mention that it made my curls so defined. I absolutely love this product!

My Review:

SmellTropical Coconut Scent  Consistency - Thick Cream   Slip - Average Slip

This particular product doubles as a leave-in conditioner and a blow drying lotion. I will just be reviewing this product as a leave-in conditioner in this post. It’s suitable for relaxed and natural hair and it has a really pleasant scent, very fresh and almost fruity but not overpowering. I credit this leave-in conditioner for my second and third day curls. It really revived my curls and kept my hair moisturised throughout the day. I think I’m going to hold on to this product for a while. Stay tuned to my review of this product as a blow drying lotion. Straight hair! 4 combs out of 5.

My Review:

Smell - Tropical Coconut Scent  Consistency - Thick Oil   Slip - Excellent Slip

If I could only choose one product to purchase from the entire line, it would be this one for it's triple punch. You could even add it to your favourite moisturiser in order to add slip and general luxuriousness. My hair was so soft after using this as a hot oil treatment. You don't need a lot as it's a quality product. 5 combs out of 5.
