This product smells divine and is somewhat of a hit or miss for me, probably because of the glycerin. When it works, it makes wonders, and when it doesn't I need to whash my hair again. Same thing on my daughter's hair, it works every other time. I still love it though, I am giving it 4 stars because it is a great leave in base and is not stucky or greasy or heavy or anything it is light and soft.

This product did not work well for my hair. It did not keep it moisturized, and the texture was a light, watery kind of feel. It was hard to put it in my hair because of the way the product was very watery (it kept slipping out my hand).

EDIT: I left a negative review here earlier saying that I didn't get much from this leave-in. I realized after I wrote it that I used it without a moisturizer (and I always use a moisturizer in my hair). I decided to try this product again with my Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Cream and my other products, and guys, the results were outstanding. My hair feels sooooo soft, it's amazing. I wasn't too keen on Darcy's Botanicals products when I first bought them, especially this one, but I am so impressed with this leave-in in combination with my other products. I'm still not sure if I would repurchase, as the Elucence moisturizing conditioner does just as well, but I will definitely use the bottle that I have in its entirety.

I have to say, I'm pretty disappointed in this product considering all the enticing things that were written on the bottle. It didn't provide any of the things that it said it would for my hair. My hair was neither detangled nor softened with this product. In fact, the very opposite happened. If not for the fact that it smelled wonderful, I would only give this one star. Granted I've only used it once, and my hair was extremely tangled, but as the bottle says that it's supposed to detangle, I really can't see it performing on my hair any better than it already has.

This product is amazing I have used so many leave-in conditioners and I must say this one is my 2nd best leave-in. It left my hair SUPER soft, bouncy and it smells good. I usually never put anything else in my hair besides a leave-in I let it air dry and I'm all set. This product left my hair feeling so soft the entire day. I think it's a good price and I will definitely purchase this product again once my bottle starts to get empty.
The only thing I will say is that it left my hair a little dry at the top almost frizzy looking but I always end up teasing my hair through out the day so it wasn't a big deal to me.

I purchased this leave condition because I wanted something not to thick but at the same time a good moisturizer that i can add too my water bottle. the conditioner makes my hair feel soft and I'm able to detangle without using a denman brush. i was really satisfied with Darcy's product and hope to purchase again.

Low porosity, protein sensitive, transitioning hair 4a/b/c
I love this leave in. The smell is a light vanilla, light consistency, and very moisturizing. I use before Darcy's Butter for great results. I have dry hair so I use some everyday with no real build up that I have seen. I found the perfect leave in for me. This would be a great leave in for relaxed hair. It is light enough but gives enough moisture. Then, just a little oil or butter to seal.

This does exactly what it says it will do. It makes my hair feel so soft and moisturized all day. My hair is relaxed but I have about an in of 4b new growth which is hard to keep moisturized with my other hair products. For me, a lot of moisturizers last most of the day or half the day but the first time I tried this it lasted well into day and the night when I went to remoisturize. Seriously the softness factor is so real! Love this and the all natural ingredients.

I really enjoyed this product for the amount of slip it provided while styling my hair dry. It also smells great and stores well even though it's a natural product with a shelf-life of one year. I would buy this product again and so far I like the brand. I have 4a hair.

I loved this and it smells delicious I get so tempted to want to taste it but I won't... I promise nothing... It smells great, nice slip, its not very thick, smooths on easily, and my hair was soft and manageable. I didn't use it by its self I did use their hair gel along with it so I'm not sure how it works without gel.

This leave-in was ok. Pros: Liked the natural ingredients, light enough to be used to refresh curls on 2nd & third day hair, and reasonably priced. Cons: Would have liked more slip, also this product doesn't distribute as smoothly in my hair as other leave-ins I've used. Will I repurchase? Probably not, but it's still a decent leave-in.
Posted by Magdalena0022 (Type 3b) on 12/21/2012
Its ok. I have fine 3b curls but something in this product is drying I'm gonna have to say its the glycerin. I live in Colorado where it is always dry.
Posted by lapluie (Type 3b) on 04/22/2012
Nice leave in, have ones I like better but like using this one too. Good detangler, not heavy, works well with most of my stylers/sealers. Green Amber scent I chose is a bit overwhelming, hangs around too long and interferes with other scents. Wish I got Vanilla.
Posted by ChristyCheryl (Type Unkown) on 04/22/2012
This was too much for my hair for some reason. It just made it look.. greasy or something. Ima type 3a/b

I am re-reviewing this. I tried this product when there was more moisture in the air and it seem to work better for me. The glycerin was a big no no with the cold dry air for my hair type. They should consider a glycerin free formulation for those of us leaving in cold dry climates. Today was a rainy day, and my hair was fine, actually better than fine. It was soft and moisturized. Also LOVE the fact that you can get this scent free from Darcy's site. And the fragance free scent is actually fragance free. It has a neutral non-frangrant smell. I have bought some natural care products in a fragrant free formulation and the product had a pungent earthy dirt like frangance (Koils by Nature leave-in conditioner). This is truly a scentless neutral formula, for those of us who have senstive noses, good job. VERY good job. This is the first neutral smell product I have found in my natural hair care journey that actually does something for my hair. I am very pleased. It doesn't work as well as the Oyin Hair Dew, but for me the smell factor is so important, I am finding myself making choices and the smell is currently winning. Neutral or light smells over pungent dessert body splash type of smelling hair products.

Giving this two stars because I used this in February and there isn't as much moisture in the air. This dried my hair out something fierce. I am assuming that it was the Glycerin, but my hair was more dry after applying this product. Saw the reviews and was confident that this would at least get the job done even if it was not the best moisturizer. I think if your hair is more dry and wirey after applying a product, then it is not getting the job done. My hair texture is 4a/b fine and I am natural. I was not purchasing this an a detangler, it was an excellent detangler for my hair. I wanted moisture and this did not moisturize my hair.

I get this leave in when I can't get my hands on komaza's califia care leave in(meaning they're not having a sale). It smells like like sugar cookie or vanilla cake batter. The results are nothing spectacular, but it does its job, so I keep it around.
Posted by beamodel (Type Unkown) on 10/28/2011
I love this. It is comparable to Shescentit coco creme leave in. It moisturizes my relaxed hair really well without leaving it heavy. Will repurchase it again for sure... Great product. Oh and it has a light Vanilla smell
Posted by omnipadme (Type 4a) on 04/18/2011
BEST leave-in I've ever come across, hand's down. I will never be without this stuff! I apply it on soaking wet hair and top with juicy peach kernel nectar- gives great definition and soft shiny hair!
Posted by beau2fullangel (Type 4b) on 10/25/2010
This stuff just set on my hair! I'm really upset....I was really hoping it would work :(
Posted by kinksesncurlz (Type 4a) on 10/05/2010
I really liked this leave-in! It's very light in consistency, but I found it to be very moisturizing, and I have DRY hair. It smells like vanilla candy, which isn't my favorite, but it's pleasant enough and not overbearing. Product is high in glycerin, so if you live in cold/dry climates you might want to save this purchase for summer months. I gave it only 4 stars because my hair only stayed moisturized for one day.. that's typical for me though so don't let that deter you!
Posted by CeeHarmony (Type 4a) on 08/07/2010
I definitely have to say that I was a bit afraid of buying tons of product and being let down. This leave-in is amazing and allows my thick 4a hair is easy to detangle. I bought the coconut flavor as well of the site and loved them both. I am interested in trying the new thicker shea butter leave in. All in all worth it if you have thick locks like me.
Posted by seritasunflower (Type 4a) on 08/06/2010
I like this product and its true...a little goes a long way. The label says you can apply to dry hair, however, it was a bit sticky when I applied to my hair dry. I'll continue to use it on wet hair. I like the smell of this product.
Posted by tangledmassofcurls (Type 3c) on 07/26/2010
I really, really like this product. Anything that can detangle my 3C "rat's nest" is fine by me! The scent is okay, but the slip factor is what really won me over. And th other reviewers are right: a little goes a long way. In fact, I think I like it BETTER than Kinky Curly Knot Today because it's actually moisturizing. And my hair is dry, dry, dry. Just wish it was less than KCKT... that would really be the bomb. I will definitely be repurchasing.
Posted by RNaturall (Type 4a) on 07/19/2010
Tried the product and loved it! It really detangles and moisturizes. Works well under Miss Jessies Curly Pudding.
Posted by infinity956 (Type 4c) on 06/14/2010
I have extremely tight and course hair with no definite curl pattern and my hair can remain dry and brittle no matter how much product I apply, however this leave-in works wonders at allowing me to get a comb through my 4c hair. When it's dry I just spritz some water on it and apply a little of this (a little goes a long way) and the comb just slips right on through. Definitely a staple!
Posted by atx_eve (Type 4b) on 06/08/2010
Yup, if you're looking for something to switch with your KC Knot Today, this is it!
I don't detangle with this OR the Knot Today, i simply use this every day as my refresher.
Wake up, spritz with water or veggie glycerin (depending if it's humid outside or not) and add a dollop of this to my scrunched up curls and POW. soft puff achieved.
And the thing is, i can actually tell that the health of my hair is improving when i do this.
The fragrances are really bakery-ish. I like lighter fruit smells more than thick cake batter, ya know? But i can dig it.
Price is fine with me. just look at those ingredients!

I received a sample of the Sweet Cream leave-in from Curl Mart and love it to use on dry hair. It really mositurizes my hair since it gets so dry in the summer. I have fine, frizzy highlighted hair. I use this with Curl Junkie products. Can't wait until CurlMart gets the Sweet Cream in to order.
Posted by LaToya (Type 4a) on 05/16/2010
I did not care for this leave-in conditioner. It just seemed to sit on my hair and did not provide much slip for detangling. I gave it away.
Posted by sweethur (Type 4a) on 04/01/2010
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stuff! The best leave-in thus far ever. I use it as a leave in and it helps me detangle like a breeze. Then I use it for my twist and it's the only product that leaves my twist smooth, without frizz and moisturized for 2+ weeks with out applying any moisturizers while they're in. No other product has done this for me and for $12, you can't beat the price. A keeper!!
