Mixed Chicks? Who'da Thought...

So I tried another product (from my curlmart purchase). Based on product description and reviews, I chose the Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner. I don't usually try leave ins because I've been satisfied with the concoction I make, so I was really interested in the results I'd get...I ALSO always passed up this product because of the name of the company...I'm no "mixed chick" so I didn't think the marketing was for me, lol...eh...
I like this product...Almost love it. I definitely like it better than the DevaCare Arc AnGel because it's a creamy product and not a gel. I applied the product after co-washing. My hair dried a lot faster than it did with the Arc AnGel which is an added bonus considering I don't like to spend much time styling and dealing with the whole drying issue. It probably took my hair 20-30 minutes to dry...
The next day when I woke up, I took my bonnet off, shook my head, and got this....
That's a first. Usually my hair is smooshed beyond repair, but honestly, I don't need anything in my hair other than some oil. That's the only criticism I have. It's not moisturizing enough for me. I think that's not a reason to stop using the product, however...
I also like that it's one of the only products that doesn't leave my hair looking jherri curl-ish. Because of the size of my curls, some products can make me look like I've got a jherri curl...
I give this product a solid...A...I'll use it for a while and see how I like it or love it in the future...

I never thought about it like that. When you have a certain curl pattern there are certain products that can make it look gerri curl- ish. I actually love your hair though.
