This product was one of my first purchases when starting my HHJ so this review is very long overdue. This conditioner has a light creamy consistency, and is not too thick which I like. I feel that it spreads much easily through my hair for that reason and also provides some slip. I will usually apply about a nickel size amount to wet hair and a little really does go a long way with this product. I think I purchased this product back in October and I am still working on the same bottle. Darcy's Botanicals offers this product in a wide variety of fragrances. I chose the Sweet Cream scent and I definitely love the fragrance of it. I mostly used it as a leave-in applied to wet hair after washing and deep conditioning. When I did my wet wraps and rollersets, my hair always came out so soft, smooth, and moisturized. The softness would even last a couple days before I would have to moisturize and seal again.
Recently I was starting to feel that it wasn't working for me anymore. I wasn't getting the same smooth soft hair that I did when I first began using it. I've used it lately while air-drying my hair and my hair seemed to be a bit dry. I started to think that maybe this leave-in did not work well for air-drying using the scarf method with my hair hanging out, but I am now pinning this dryness to protein overload. Since correcting this my hair is starting to feel softer again with use.
All in all I really like this product. I've been using it consistently since starting my HHJ and it is definitely a staple. I can definitely vouch for the promise of conditioning, softness, moisture and ease of detangling.
Has anyone else tried Darcy's Daily Leave-In Conditioner? What are your thoughts on it? Staple or no?
