When it comes to my hair, i have naturally curly, very dry, fine textured hair. Now, i know that this product has been around for a long time. I believe that during such time, it has gone through being reformulated. I can say that the current version i have now has a very stinct citrusy+orange smell to it. The smell does linger. I am not a huge fan of it, but i am able to tolerate it. And, you have to be very careful about how much of this product you use in your hair, or it will get oily/greasy quick.
This product is simply a regular pomade, and does what pomades are supposed to do. Because it has beeswax, you have to be careful about buildup from such. Which is why, it is best to use this product in very small amounts. My initial reason for trying this stuff wasn't even for my hair, it was actually for my scalp, because i was diagnosed with having scalp eczema in the summer of 2015. This product did really nothing to soothe my scalp, and whenever I have used it in my hair, it leaves it with a greasy film on it.
I have moved on from using products that are laden with ingredients that are just plain out greasy and don't penetrate the hair shaft, but just sit on top making it oily to the touch. I no longer use any of Carol's Daughter's products, because the line just doesn't suit my hair and scalp needs' best. I instead go by the Curly Girl Method at this time, and choose to use DevaCurl products exclusively now, which happen to better suit both my hair and scalp much better overall.
