I have been on the search for a really good deep conditioner to use along with my Huetiful steamer. I was browsing Essence.com on January 1 and came across this:
So I decided I would give it a try. It is at Walgreen’s for $7.99 for the 11.5 oz bottle. There was a $1 off coupon attached to the bottle and you know I used it.

So here are my thoughts regarding this product:
I used it yesterday 1/5/12 after washing with Mixed Chicks Sulfate Free Shampoo. I detangled with Tresemme Naturals (as usual).
I applied this to my hair and OMG!!!!! I love the consistency. As I applied it, my hair immediately feel moisturized. This is not a THICK product it is more of a WET consistency. It has slip. You could detangle with it if you wanted to. If it were not $8 a bottle I would DEFINITELY use it as my detangler. I parted the hair in 4 sections and applied the product to each section. I then combined both sections on the left and both sections on the right to make 2 big sections separated by a middle part and clipped them. SEE pic below.
I then sat under the steamer.
I have added weekly steam treatments to my routine.
I then twisted my hair.
I DID NOT RINSE THE PRODUCT OUT. (It does say to rinse on the bottle, but I am a REBEL)
I loved how supple my twists were. Here is a pic of my twists this morning:
My final thoughts are this:
If you are looking for a good deep conditioner that is not expensive and is readily available is most markets and is all (98%) natural, this is a GREAT conditioner. I am no longer on the hunt for a deep conditioner.
