Scent: this smells amazing! I don't mind smelling like this all day. That mango, tropical scent just makes me happy. It's for this reason that I have tried to make this work.
Texture: creamy, deceptively seems quite heavy.
On my hairWith all those ingredients, you would wonder how this could possibly go wrong? But it did!As a definer for my Coily hair? This stuff is deficient. It didn't make my coils pop. Infact it was more like a coil wrecker! Because I tried this on wet hair straight after a co-wash when my coils were still popping and BAM Beautiful Textures came and bamboozled them out of the way as soon I smoothed it on. For a wash n go on Coily hair. I wouldn't recommend this. Maybe I will re-visit this in the future for twist or twist-outs. I really really wanted to love this product, but it just wouldn't work for me. Has it worked for you?


  1. I brought the whole line and hated everything! Gave it to my 4a sister and she really liked it!

  2. Apparently we are supposed to seek solace in the fact that it is cheap. I am still trying to make the moisture butter work. May post a review soon. I just love the scents so much!

  3. Yea this stuff smells devine and while it def moisturized my curls it didn't define them in the slightest. Major let down.

  4. Yea this stuff smells divine and while it did moistueize my curls it def did not define them. Major let down.
