Ok, I am excited to be the first to write a review for this product. I am a product junkie so I have tried A LOT of products out there. I have tried combinations of products. I have thick, curly 3c African American hair. I use Redken Smooth Down shampoo and conditioner (they are amazing). But I really want a products that defines AND moisturizes. Usually it defines but is dry or it moisturizes and doesn't define.
The only one that I found good for both elements was Afro Veda Pur Whipped Gelly. It is thick and super moisturizing and defining. But you can only get it online. I need to know if I run out I can get it quickly. So I would always have two around.
Anyway, when I got this, I was able to get GREAT definition AND moisture. It's not thick like the Afro Veda, but it looked shiny and my hair was perfect (for me). But I love how it is light and was still able to moisturize AND hold. This product in my opinion is SUPERIOR to any I have used before.
I understand that you get enhanced moisture when using As I Am leave-in. I am curious so I will try that combo next. I can't wait to go wash my hair and try it again!
This is still great in my book, but I feel that it is a great second product, because this is a lighter hold than I what I am currently doing. I found a better regimen for my 3C hair type. I use Paul Mitchel The Conditioner with Eco Styler w/ Argon. Once it dries, you scrunch and it is super soft, hydrated, shiny with curl def.
