Pros:


I have used this product for about 4 weeks now, and I must say that it has bumped my previous moisturizer Elasta QP out of the park! It is a really good moisturizer with benefits from the herb and natural oil extracts. For me, the main benefit is the fact that it does not sit on my hair, but actually penetrates it, although this process takes a few minutes to overnight.


It has a rooibos mixed with herb type of scent, but the scent is light which is awesome. I can hardly smell it on my hair after applying it.

It has a medium consistency, and applying it to my hair has been very easy.

It does take about an hour to overnight before I can feel the softness that they promise, but it does come around in the end. I have seen best results when I moisturize with this product at night and seal with shea butter afterwards.

The moisturizer comes with a pump, which is awesome because you can measure the amount you use daily and stick with the same amount every time. Plus, I think it also helps to make a little go a long way, I feel like I am much more conscious as to the amount I am using when I am pumping it out of a product than when I have to turn it upside down and squeeze it out lol!

Cons:

The moisture retention does not stay for long, as I usually have to moisturize my hair daily. However, it is abit hot where I live, so this could have an impact on my hair's moisture retention regardless of which product I would use. 

I am not sure which ingredient it is, but there are times when my ends feel straw-like at the end of the day. There does not seem to be any protein in this product, but it could be the rooibos tea that causes this effect. However, this has not caused any breakage so for me it is not a deal breaker.

I have used it on wet hair as well, but I do not get the moisture retention that I get when I use it on dry hair...

Overall it is a keeper for me, but the real test will be how it works when I have 10-16 weeks of new growth. I am hoping that it works just as well during the last few weeks of my stretch.

I give this product a 9/10, it would be a 10, but it takes some time before it moisturizes my hair and it gives my hair a straw-like feeling at times.
