I don't know how this product does what it does, the ingredients seem like the typical things you see in hair conditioners, but this stuff is magic.
I have a bad habit of wearing my shoulder-length natural 3c/4a twist-out for days at a time and after a few days, I've saved time on my daily hair care, but I end up with a matted mess that takes more time to work through! I've used several 'detangler' products, but not only did this one take out the knots, it made my curls/waves more defined, fuller and softer. I use 3-4 dollops right before I shampoo, to undo any tanglies and it does the trick--but I'm tempted to use it as a leave-in, it makes my hair look that good...I will never be without this product!
Merchant Response:One of the great things about this product is you can leave it in or wash it out. You get some benefit either way. Since you are using it as a detangler before washing, it makes sense you would wash it out. But, some people use it just as a leave-in conditioner.
