Any who, I’ve been dragging my feet on posting these reviews, so today I’m going to post 3 reviews of the product…two fellow readers and mine. So before I get into the reviews, let’s go over the basics of the product.
PRODUCT DETAILS: For afro/natural textured hair. For those growing their natural hair-- who desire no chemicals and want strength shine and manageability, this is the product! Afro Detangler penetrates the hair shaft reconstructs, strengthens, softens, conditions, and balances the pH in your strands. There is no oily build up. The comb will glide through your hair. Stops hair breakage to practically none. Use on dry or damp hair. A leave-in conditioner. An all natural product! No Chemicals! No Parabens!
INGREDIENTS: water, avocado/mango/shea butter, vitamin E, avocado oil, lecithin, green tea extract, orange extract, CitroZine™ (Organic) as a preservtive, natural fragrance.
COST: 64oz Jug retails for $49, plus flat rate shipping
MY REVIEW: The best way to describe this product is it reminds me of a natural Luster’s pink oil moisturizer! It has the same consistency as Luster’s, and is even pink!
I have used Afro Detangler in a few different ways:
1. Leave in conditioner for twists
2. Moisturizer for dry hair (twists, puffs, buns)
3. Detangler on damp/dry hair
I have to admit, that it makes a GREAT moisturizer for dry hair. It softens the hair, making it easier to brush/comb/smooth into a bun or puff, but it doesn’t make the hair greasy like some dry hair moisturizers tend to. It imparts a nice shine/sheen, and absorbs really well into the hair.
As a leave in, it’s a great primer step for twists and other protective styles. For my uber dry hair, I usually use it as a leave in only during milder weather, and use a heavier product in colder weather. Those of you in more temperate climates should have no problems using this product year round!
I think this product is EXCELLENT for kids’ hair that is usually in low maintenance styles like braids and pig tails. When I was home recently, I took an 8oz bottle home for my sister to use on my niece, and she really liked it. She said that it worked really well for restyling ponytails in the am before going to daycare, and she’s already asking me to send her some more. I sent the link to the website instead…lol).
Over all, I give this product 4 stars. It’s really a 5 star product, but the huge size of it turns me off. Where the hell am I suppose to store a ½ jug of product? I love this product, but I don’t love it enough to justify using a ½ gallon jug of the stuff!
