For reference, my hair is relaxed and I stretch for 12 - 16 weeks in between relaxers (my natural hair could be classified as 3C - dense, corkscrew curls). I purchased this product at Target for $9.99. I tried to incorporate this into my regimen as my moisturizer, but found it too heavy and it made my hair hard. The reason for the hardness was because this product contains protein (too much protein & not enough moisture = hard hair). So now I use this as the basis for a bi-monthly protein treatment (2 tsps of Smoothie, 1tsp of honey, and a cheapie water based conditioner). It is excellent for making your hair stronger because of its protein, it just didn't work for me as a moisturizer. I have repurchased (on my second container) and would recommend.
