Smell:  The same scent that is prevalent to the African Black Soap line, sweet and fruity to me.
Ease of use:  very easy considering its a spritz
Slip: n/a
Moisture capacity: high moisture factor
Versatility:  You can use this on your face to relieve your eczema or your scalp to relieve dandruff

This works very well for relieving the itch that comes with protective styling with additional hair. Whenever I am in Kinky Twists I usually maintain my scalp with a spritz. This time around I picked Senegalese Twists which I have never had before and it seems my hair is a little drier than normal. I tend sweat a lot in my head so I washed my scalp with a black soap I have and then follow it up with this elixir. I have no complaints at all. I haven't had excessive itches and if a spot feels like its dry I spot spritz and go about my way.  If youre going to be in protective styles for longer than a month I would suggest you get two bottles.

Overall I'm highly satisfied with this product and will continue to buy it in the future.
