According to the website:
The combination of Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, and Algae and Pullan makes an excellent detangling and moisturizing leave-in for dry thirsty hair.
Algae and Pullan trap water in the hair shaft slowing the process of moisture loss from the hair shaft helping to minimize immediate shrinkage and breakage. pH Balance 4.5
The ingredients are: Distilled Water, Aloe Vera, Shea Oil, Jojoba Oil, Algae and Pullan Extract, Behenetrimonium, Panthenol, Soybean Oil, Nettles, Horsetail, Rosemary, Peppermint, Marshmallow, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Allantoin, Citric Acid, Phthalates-Free Vegetarian Fragrance, Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate(natural preservative).
I bought the 2 oz bottle because I figured that would be safe. Luckily I did. I originally saw this bottle on Just Grow Already where she raved about this item for her new growth. I decided to try it (though most of the products she recommends and I try I wind up hating, but I get introduced to new lines which I love about her). When I looked at the ingredients, I was skeptical because it has Shea Oil. Now I spoke to one of my naturals, and she told me stay away from Shea, its better for naturals and even then not all of them. I figured Shea Oil would be better than the butter right? Wrong.
Here’s My Review:
This stuff did not leave my hair moisturized. It didnt leave it dry, however, I felt like it was no different in the end. My hair would get tangled after using this so I would have to be extra gentle when combing. Texlaxed hair plus New Growth equals I am already being careful, how much more so you want? By the end of the week, my hair felt dry and rough and I couldnt wait to wash. I really wanted to like this product on my roots, but it was not the move. Now on my ends, it was pretty ok. Did 2 jobs in 1. But in the morning, when I normally only seal, I would have to M&S considering that I used this product at night. When I use my Darcy’s, I only have to use that at night and seal in the morning. This product caused me to have to still do this 2x.
I noticed my dry hair does not respond well with Aloe Vera and my hair period seems to not respond well to Shea and still up in the air with Jojoba, Netter and Marshmallow. This product is just not for me. Would I recommend it? Yeah. But I would stress to read the ingredients. If they havent worked before, they probably will not work now.
