How I Used This Product:
[1]   Prepooed by itself, as well as mixed Extra Virgin Olive Oil & peppermint to it for
       25mins with heat.
[2]   Deep Conditioned by itself, as well as mixed Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Extra Virgin 
       Coconut Oil to it for 45mins with heat.

The Assessment:
This Deep Conditioner comes in a bottle which I don’t like because I have to transfer it into a bowl to use it. The consistency is watery and pale yellow in colour. The smell is alil strong but not overbearing as it is a sweet smell, which doesn't linger after rinsing it out. I prefer to prepoo with this because it moisturizes my hair instantly and makes it feel soft and silky. I mainly like to use it after doing hairstyles like braid-outs, flexi-rods, basically any styles that may end up frizzy, because my hair returns soft and silky again.

This product sinks into my strands and alittle goes a long way. It also has a lot of slip which is a bonus.  As a Deep Conditioner I think its okay, nothing special happened to my hair, not sure if it’s because I'm used thick DC’s but my hair felt normal. Maybe I was hoping for better results than what the prepoo gave me but it was just okay.

Looking at the ingredients it contains Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein which is a moisturizing protein that increases the hair’s ability to retain moisture and impact shine to damaged dull hair. It improves manageability, builds body and smoothness.

Overall I think this product is great for instantly moisturizing my hair but I prefer it as a prepoo (pre-shampoo treatment) than a Deep Conditioner. This product is available at most beauty supply stores in Barbados but the price may range. I’ll definitely repurchase.

    1. Natasha, pre-poo is simply preparing your hair for the harsh shampoo's which strip your hair of moisture and natural oils. You can opt to use a conditioner or hot oil treatment. I pre-poo on dry hair, Shampoo and Deep Condition my hair.

  4. I used this once because I had one of the sample packets. At the time, I liked it, but I haven't repurchased any to have a serious opinion. Nice review!
