Last week, I bought a bottle of Natures Gentle Touch leave-in-conditioner for N735 in Shoprite Abuja. I have heard so much about this product and I was excited to try it out. Please read on for my review...even though the picture of my hair says a lot.
"Provides instant continuous conditioning treatment for ultimate hair care. It restores, conditions and revitalizes normal to dry hair. Its light non-greasy formula preserve healthy balance and adds shine 24/7."
Aqua, PEG-12 dimethicone, polysorbate 20, glycereth-26, polyquaternium-44, hair keratin protein, Tricitum Vulgaris (wheat) gem oil, Simmonndsia Chinensis (jojoba) seed oil....among others.

-When I took down the threads my hair felt sticky. The oil I used to seal in the moisture seemed to have done nothing as my hair felt dry...make that sticky and dry o_0.Remember that I air dried my hair o...hm!
-It gave me some definition (as seen in the picture above)but the dry/sticky feeling led me back to the bathroom to re-wash my hair.
Will I use the product again?
No,I'm sorry Natures Gentle Touch, but my natural mane does not like your herbalblend leave in conditioner. After using this product, I wonder what the hype is all about.
So this leads to a...
