    This product did stretch my curls and caused less clumping with my wash n go. I didn't like it the next day as my hair was Frizzy with no definition. I do think that this butter may be more suitable for someone with thicker strands as this made my fine hair sticky and weighed down.

    I've also used this for twist outs and I will say that it was so moisturised, the twists were shiny and defined throughout the week.

    I wouldn't say that I would repurchase as I normally wear my hair in wash n go state, but it is good for stretched styles.

    The name is misleading and Its great for certain styles, like finger coils but it's very heavy for my fine hair and it's a lot oily if you become heavy handed. It does give shine and the weight of the product does make the style last longer. Its great for styling and sealing in moisture since it's oil heavy. I would recommend but use with caution. Their website does give styling options and for more hold I would suggest adding a gel

    This product did nothing for my thick coily hair! I've tried using this several different times at different stages and the outcome is always the same, I bought this a year ago on the day of my big chop because my stylist recommended it and I still have the more than half left.

    I used this product to do a banto knot out on my daughter's hair and it came out beautiful. Her hair is fine yet tuck and has a natural curl pattern. Loved it.

    This did not stretch out my hair. I was very disappointed. I thought that I could use it with a twist out and it did help a bit but it was too heavy and made my hair sticky. Total waste of money.

    I don't think anything can stretch my curls, this didn't work for me. No sheen or frizz control.

    This does not stretch anything about my curls. It could work on another curl type though. It smells nice. 3 curls because I use it as a light cream for wash and go's but it's for a short time (like going from home to the store and back again).
