Assessment: The smell is a bit minty but fruity at the same time not overpowering but the smell does fade and it is very liquidy and is transparentish. When sprayed it comes out like a fine mist which I like.
I have been using the this braid spray for almost a month now and I must say I'm very impressed. I do use this product everyday at least once per day. The first day I installed my twists I sprayed it into my hair and within about two days the tightness was relieved and I did not experience any soreness. I do have an itchy scalp no matter what but the itchiness is pretty much the same as before which is a good thing because with synthetic hair the itchiness usually increases. This product does moisturize my hair and scalp. I love that glycerin is one of the first ingredients which means its perfect for the summer because glycerin is a humectant which attracts moisture to the hair. It does tingle on the scalp which I like maybe given the fact that it does have peppermint and tea tree.
As for the stops breakage and split ends I cannot tell until I take down the twist so stay tuned.
The ingredients as you can see are pretty decent if you are not against parabens or cones.
Yes I would repurchase this product.

  1. I love to use this when I have braids or a weave. It really helps my hair stay moisturized and it's pretty easy to find in Nigeria.

  2. Really great product right, I'm even thinking about using it as a new growth moisturizer

  3. I'm glad it works well for you, it left my hair dry.

  4. Thanks but sorry to hear it didn't work for you :(
