A Hair milk by any other name might be a Hair Smoothie, Conditioner , Leave in.. etc

Ive noticed that a few company's are starting to use the word "smoothie". I'm a lover of food so of course I am going to bite and even more so when the products smells as good as it looks. I love the versatility of products that can be use for either conditioning, moisturizing , styling , or even leaving in to conditioner the hair.

First up we have Wonder Curls Get Slick Hair Smoothie.  Get Slick Hair Smoothie provides your hair with the benefits of organic coconut oil and organic Castor oil. Coconut oil, known for its benefits to skin and hair, is the only oil that penetrates the hair shaft to strengthen. Castor oil, also known for its medicinal properties, protects hair, prevents hair loss and promotes hair growth. Using Get Slick Hair Smoothie will keep your hair looking soft, shiny and strong.

 Used the Butter than Love Pudding and Hair Smoothie under Eco Styler

 You can pay either $7 for 4ozs or $13 for 8ozs. 

Some of the key ingredients are : Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice - The rhythmically prepared leaf juice soothes the skin & hair and helps maintain proper moisture balance
Organic Castor Oil is a very pale yellow liquid that is extracted from Castor seeds (Ricinus Communis). The fatty acids in it nourish hair and prevent the scalp from drying by retaining moisture.
Organic Coconut Oil, a lauric acid (principal fatty acid), with a high affinity for hair proteins and, because of its low molecular weight and straight linear chain, is able to penetrate inside the hair shaft.”
Hydroxyethyl Cellulose is a non-ionic, water soluble polymer used as a thickening agent for aqueous cosmetic and personal care formulations
Phenoxyethanol is an organic chemical compound, a glycol ether used as a preservative
Tetrasodium EDTA is a chelating agent, used to sequester and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in a product
Acacia gum is a natural polysaccharide derived from the sap of the African acacia tree. It has been used since ancient times and is known for its demulcent and anti-inflammatory qualities.

Citric Acid acid produced by fermentation of glucose derived from starch, widely used in foods and cosmetics. Used to adjust pH 
 My overall impression is , that it works well as a leave in on dry hair that's already been styled,  it works well under a gel for definition and additional moisture and it works well as a light conditioner wash, the only thing I do not like is the fact that I have to use so much for each section of my hair.  With one use( for a WnG) of the 8oz bottle I was half way thru it.  It will not be a purchase for me due to that. I can get more bang for my buck with either  Tresemme Naturals Conditioner or Garnier Pure Clean Conditioner.
