First off, I’d like to say that I will not be purchasing anymore products from MHC. Why, you ask? Well, when I was in the store, I got a little happy buying products for 40% off on the ground, so I didn’t notice that the products do not contain preservatives. NO, vitamin E is NOT an adequate preservative, at least not for me. I have too many products and rotate them often, so I need products I do not have to worry about spoiling. Now…for the review.
From the MHC website:
Instant , Coats and Smooths the Cuticle

Raw Honey, Coconut Butter, Coconut Milk, Almond essential oil, and purified water
The consistency of this product is very thin, which makes it difficult to use as a rinse out conditioner in the shower, and I certainly was using a lot. However, it does have a lot of slip. The smell is a faint almond – nut type smell. I wasn’t crazy about it, but I wasn’t mad about it either. Because it’s so thin, I decided to use it as a leave-in instead, and I will say, I liked it best used like this. It was easy to distribute throughout my hair (especially when I could see in the mirror) and had some detangling properties. For NYE, I used it then put aloe vera gel on top – I think my hair came out pretty good (it’s definitely not heavy enough for me to use alone).
The other way I used this conditioner was as a refresher, which was BAD! Initially, it was fine and absorbed well into my hair, but once it dried….no no! Every time I shook my head or touched my hair, a little snowfall would happen. And I know it wasn’t coming from my scalp, so I was like uhhhh ew, flaky product!
Anyway, being that I have about 50-11 awesome leave-ins, and that was the best way I used this condish, I wouldn’t buy it again, even if it had preservatives. It’s easier to use up though, because it’s so thin – mine is almost gone and I haven’t even had it for a week (6oz)!
