My Review:Years ago, when I was fully natural my hair stylist would use the Jane Carter line of products on my hair.  She swore by them and my hair was pretty healthy for the most part when I was a customer of hers.  So now that I have mainly natural hair I wanted to go back to using he products.  I've been using this leave-in conditioner for about 2 months now on both my hair and my weave.  As for my hair, rarely do I use this as my only leave-in, but more recently I have been using it alone to see how well my hair does. Right now I'm sporting wigs so I just spray it on my cornrows and seal with a scalp oil and keep it moving.  When I went to redo  my cornrows my hair didn't feel dry or brittle, but it also didn't feel fully moisturized.  It felt strong but not superb.  As I said earlier I also use this on my weave;however, it doesn't work well at all on the weave (Peruvian hair).  Now when I use this product on my weave I don't seal with an oil to prevent my weave from looking greasy.   So this may be a reason why it doesn't work as well on my weave.  I spray it on the weave every morning then brush it thru.   Initial reaction is that the hair looks "revitalized", but after it sets in (like 10 minutes) the hair looks a little dry still.

I don't plan to repurchase this leave-in conditioner.  Maybe I'll revisit when I'm not wearing weaves but for now I'll pass on it because it doesn't wow me.
