This product can be used by everyone in my family.
- There are varying hair textures from 4c (tight kinky coiled), to 3b (Soft Wavy).
texlaxed (textured under-relaxed hair),
transitioning (half relaxed, half natural), relaxed, and natural.
- This product imparts sheen.
- It eliminates frizz.
I use it to smooth down edges for sleek looks, such as buns or ponytails.
My daughter's 4a hair is easily smoothed on the edges with this product.
Her APL (armpit lenght) hair is coiffed into a side swept donut bun.
I also use it to blend a small portion of hair from my hairline with wigs.
It does not matter whether the wig is a lacefront, straight, wavy or curly,
the transition is seamless with the use of this product.
The men in our home use this to set waves.
We love it!
I like the fact that it does not contain petroleum, wax or alcohol.
It does not leave our hair stiff or crunchy. It leaves the hair very soft.
I give this product 4 out of 5 stars.
I love all of the natural oils and vitamins, but really wish there was a way to retain all of the qualities of this product without the taboo ingredients such as the parabens and the mineral oil.
