Price: I paid $2.50, but it's probably $1.50-$2.00 at Walmart.

  OK. I do like this product. It smells pretty nice, and after a night of soaking in, it left my hair so.. SOOOOO... Soft!!!! It has very good slip and the moisture level was high the whole week. So in general I love this product....

  What I didn't like was the excess shedding I had after I uncovered my hair the next day. It wasn't like fists full of hair, but it was still pretty bad. I can't say the conditioner caused it, but I can't say it didn't. As you all know, my hair is pretty thin up top and I don't need to lose MORE hair. Also, it took a LOT of product for my hair. I mean, it took like 1/3 of the bottle and I still didn't feel like it was exactly enough. I am heavy with product, but I know when I'm using a lot. And that was a damn LOT.. LoL!! It may be the fact I'm use to Aussie, as that's all I've used since becoming a loose natural. Maybe I'm just only use to that one product. (Love it!!) So every other product has to stand up to it. Then again, I am suspecting my two Holy Grail products are causing excess shedding also, which is why I'm looking for new products to replace them. So I have to put Aussie on the shelf and give new stuff a chance. :p

ANYWAY, will I buy this product again? Well, maybe. I like most of the ingredients and it has loads of oils which most naturals like to add to products like this anyway. The smell is nice, it's moisturizing, makes my hair soft and is cheap. Honestly except for the shedding and the need to use so MUCH, it's a great product. I'd say this is a definite maybe. A solid maybe even. LoL! 

But first... More product testing.. :)
