    Major miss

    Curl & Potions rice milk leave in. Used it twice . Made my hair hard, dry and dull. I contacted the seller and they were very nice and gave me a discount for another purchase. I was told that it's not a leave in but a styling milk. It had no slip and it didn't play well with my styler. Had to re wash my hair and go back to SM LI. In the garbage it went. I'll use my discount for more vitamins. If I can't get a simple leave in to work, then it's not the line for me.

    Hit:
    Hennasooq Cocoveda hair mask. It is a mud mask, sort of like a henna gloss. It does stain your hands so use gloves. It has no slip. The scent is strong and smells like ginger. The texture is grainy like...well mud.
    I left it in 2 hours as directed. After rinsing my hair was moisturized but strong.

    Too soon to see if it toned down the red tone of my grays. But my twists are holding moisture and my hair looks healthy.

    So far I like it. Glad I have two.

    It's doing me right, right about now.:love:....:drool:

    I always think this when I first apply, but fortunately the scent doesn't bother me and I find the scent doesn't really linger in my hair.

    Shea Moisture Silicone-Free Miracle Leave-in conditioner.

    Was sitting in my cabinet, I only packed it for my trip because it was the smallest leave-in I owned. Happy I finally tried it, makes my hair silky and so so so so much slip. Might test it as the C of my LCO next wash day, we'll see....
