My hair is naturally very curly and very dry. To loosen the curl a bit I used a mild relaxer creme on it. It worked but, of course, it also left my hair a bit drier and more fragile.
I had given up hope of ever finding a rinse out treatment/conditioner that had any effect on my hair after the product had been rinsed down the drain, and I only purchased this product because I thought it was a moisturizing lotion for curly hair (it left my hair too soft & very puffy when used in this way).
After realizing my error, I used it tonight for the first time as a rinse out, and my curls turned out very nicely: they're smoother, glossier and more moisturized than I've seen them in a longtime. Gonna try this a few times more before I decide whether or not to stock up on it.
