Product Review:Shea Butter Cottage ROSEMARY LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER

aloe vera, rosemary, mungongo cold pressed oil*,shea butter, jojoba oil,avocado oil, coconut oil, murumuru butter,behentrimonium methosulfate and cetearyl alcohol, wheat protein, castor oil, panthenol, wild apple, olive squalane, ylang ylang, vita e, and potassium sorbate ( loosely translated off the jar)

*Schinziophyton Rautanenii Kernel Oil (Mongongo Oil) – A naturally derived oil from Africa that has excellent hydrating, regenerating and restructuring properties

*Olive squalane is a light emollient oil that is beneficial for the treatment of many skin problems. It is often effective in clearing difficult skin problems when nothing else helps! Squalane is an colorless, odorless, non-staining oil that penetrates into the skin quickly and absorbs deeply to help fight dryness. This deep absorption of the squalane helps to promote new cell growth while alleviating the symptoms

If you read my prior post on November 22,2010 you will remember I received this product. almost 24 days later I have just about went through the jar. I will have to say I am heavy handed as heck which sometimes is a bad thing.

The product was so creamy and easy to distribute that I was applying more than I thought. Right off the bat this leave in conditioner is pure protein laden. I am protein sensitive and wanted to see how my hair would react to this.

I have to say that it wasn't as bad as I feared. I made sure to seal heavily with Avosoya oil or when I used this to do twists , I sealed with Curls Passion fruit Control Paste. My hair held up well and didn't feel hard at all.

I will say watch out with this , if you are in an inside office where the air is cooler than normal. A couple of times I reached up to touch a braid and it would feel really hard., however once I was in my car going home for the day, the heat from the soften my hair up and it went back to feeling soft and supple.

I give this 4 napps out of 5. The only reason is because 1. the product maker is based overseas and 2.I couldn't use this on a daily basis as I tend to do with most of my leave ins.

Hey why lie , I always want someone to tell me the truth with anything . I love products, there isnt a product out there that I couldnt make work even if it didnt turn out how I liked but you have to give it a chance, I hate reviews where its two days of use and youre raving about it. you have got to give a product a chance before you say quits


I too love your reviews as your hair type is similar to mine and like you said you take your time to review a product.
As for the hardness it can be attributed to the coconut oil which does solidify at room temp. I have heard complaints from other curlies who have found that now as the temp has dropped their coconut oil sometimes solidifies in their hair.

You know , Chelsea you could be correct, and for me coconut oil tends to act proteinish with my hair as well , I prefer coconut milk to oil
