Directions: "Apply a generous amount throughout wet or dry hair for healthy conditioning and moisture."

My Thoughts:
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?



Thanks for reading,

    1. I mostly use Darcy's Coconut Lemongrass Transition Creme for moisturizing, but the Daily Leave-In works pretty well too. :)
