What I'd say: Unlike most creamy leave in conditioners, this has a very thin consistency, which was surprising to me. In fact, I think that the packaging should be changed to a more easily accessible bottle. Much like a pump bottle. The actual liquid is a green-brown colour (not attractive) and I usually use oil (castor or coconut) afterwards as a sealant.The leave in actually has weird kind of soapy feel that, I never really experienced before.  The smell... well, it doesn't really have a smell. However, after using the oil, I get a lot of defined curls with no single strand knots. It's very moisturising and I love it.

Bottom line: It only loses points for the not so organic ingredients and the bottle. Other than that, it's a product that I will use over and over again.
