Sometime ago I spoke about what a leave-in conditioner is and the beauty of using one in your finalizing routine. If you have not read it yet, check it out here.
I gave you some examples of leave-ins that I had used before and that I liked. But I have recently stumbled upon a great discovery.
Aunt Jackie’s Moisture Intense Leave-In Conditioner
I mean, just the name is enough to tell you that there is lots of moisture involved.
My natural hair is dry so it constantly needs moisture to avoid that dry look it gets after it dries or when it is loose. When I have it tied or in a protective hair style, it looks and feels great. But when I just let it loose, it gets this dry feel after a few hours or after it gets a lot of sun.
Why is it All That?
Aunt Jackie’s leave-in has helped me quite a lot with this aspect. It promotes moisture because it’s highly hydrating and offers a deep moisture therapy. My 3c hair loves the slip, shine and softness added to it. The shea butter, olive oil and marshmallow root are the agents that provide all these wonderful benefits.
Look, Feel and Smell
Besides the good things it brings, it is easy to apply and does not require a big amount of product for your hair to look great. The smell is a characteristic smell for all Aunt Jackie’s products, quite nice. The leave-in looks more like a shampoo, it is very runny and it has a green look to it.
How to Apply
The leave-in conditioner does not need to be washed after applied, leave it on for that dryness to walk out of your strands. You wash your hair as normal, or if you would like the wash routine I usually go with, click here. After washing it and removing the excess water, apply your leave-in carefully. Try to seal it with an oil so that the moisture it brings to your hair, your folicles do not let loose.
My hair has gotten so much better after I introduced it to Aunt Jackie’s natural products. I am now using the Co-Wash, Leave-In and Curl Custard. But those are reviews for another day.
My current finalizing combo is the Leave-In, some Oil to seal in the moisture and after the Curl La La Curl Custard for a full on defined, bouncy and full curls.
Have you used the Leave-In Conditioner before? If not, give it a try and let me know how it goes.
