My Thoughts:
After Application
I did get some curls definition with this product, but the curls did not last. Even my two-strand twits did not last a very long time after leaving the product on my hair for hours. The product is pretty expensive for my tastes and it takes too long to dry. Do not make the same mistake that I did of sweating before the product dried. That was a hot mess!

  • Moisturizing
  • No Crunch
  • Bearable smell
  • No Build-up
  • Not enough hold
  • Takes too long to dry
  • Sticky
  • Too Heavy

I can't say that this one is created for all hair types. I believe that women with looser curls will benefit more from this one. I love how the product smells, but the first thing that caught my attention after applying the product was how heavy it was on my hair. Eco Styler gel leaves my hair crunchy, but it does not weigh my hair down. This product is definitely not a gel-like---It has a creamy consistency and it is very moisturizing. I couldn't recommend this one to somebody who has 4c hair type like mine. My main reason is because the product will turn your Z shaped curls into 3c curls after you apply it, then your hair will turn into an Afro with very little curl definitions after the product sets. If your hair type is anywhere between 3a and 3c, I totally think that this is perfect for your wash-n-gos.
