In Review: Darcy’s Botanicals Sweet Cocoa Bean Moisturizing Hair Whip

More details after the jump!

Ingredients: Distilled Water, Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, BTMS (conditioning emulsifier), Olive Oil, Organic Palm Oil, Wildflower Honey, Candelilla Wax, Cetyl Esters, Panthenol, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (a paraben-free preservative), Vanilla, Coffee Oil, and Cocoa Absolute.

Pros: Moisturizing/Seemed to add a nice sheen to my hair/Settles in hair nicely
Cons: Seems to be in an awkward place between a leave-in and a heavier moisturizer. I wouldn’t seal with it and don’t have a lot of use for moisturizers that aren’t as versatile. Didn’t really have slip for me as a leave-in. And I wish it had coconut oil, but that’s a personal preference.
Verdict: I’d use it again, but it lacked a “wow” factor for me so I wouldn’t proactively seek it out.
