|Close up view after using the As I am Leave-In|
As I finished up working the leave in all over my hair it went on very nicely and I didn’t notice there was a ton of slip but enough that I could easily distribute the product all over my hair and to my surprise it felt so good on my hair. I didn’t have to use a lot of product either to effectively coat my entire head – goodie goodie gum drop! I also want to make mention that this product didn’t battle my frizz as much as I am used to however I don’t like to put strikes on products that don’t claim to provide a service that I am looking for. This product never claimed to control frizz and although it didn’t do a bad job I don’t feel it’s fair to strike it for something it doesn’t claim to do. Frizz is a huge issue for some so I thought I point that out although different products work differently on various textures. Could this product be what the old saying claims – what is trash for someone else may be another man’s treasure??

YES! I actually really enjoyed this leave-in. I was pleasantly surprised. Let me try to break it down. I feel when judging a product I like to always see how well the product stacked up against with the company claims – and this product was a yes on almost every claim. My hair was left super soft, more manageable, nice hold, left my hair shiny, and well hydrated. It also played well with my cream based styler! The only con I noticed is in the front of my hair where I slick it down – I always top off my hair in that place with a little aloe vera gel so my hair will not fly everywhere. After I added some gel a little while later I looked in the mirror and I noticed an odd white residue. When I use my staple leave in I always have white product residue and it usually always goes away as it dries but this looked different. So I don’t know if it played well with my gel but it was only in that one spot everywhere else no product residue. Other than that I thought this product was a great success. It didn’t beat my old faithful leave-in but it definitely packed a strong punch by working its way into rotation! I hope this review was insightful and helps guide you along your natural hair product journey. Are you a leave in-natural & if so, what products worked their way into your product stash??
