Green Tip: Dry hair will with towel before applying product – you’ll use less product since it won’t become diluted like it would in wet hair

Gosh! Is the name long or what?! lol.. anyways.. Though currently experimenting with using rinse-out conditioners as leave - in conditioners, I thought I should try this one on spotting it at TKMaxx. I've liked some of TIGI's products (Superstar conditioner & Curls Rock conditioner) in the past, plus the ingredients had some of dafro's favourite ingredients namely aloe vera,glycerin, shea butter and lots of oils. 
Packaging: I like the small convenient bottle with the funky lime colour. The small spout gives me a lot of control with getting out the conditioner as it's quite watery.
Scent : Very sweet, I get more of cherrys rather than almonds with this one. The scent is not long-lasting, though I wish it was because I really liked it!
Texture: Creamy very light, but quite filmy, you can tell that this product contains quite a bit glycerin due to it's texture.
Best for me: As a second day refresher. Not heavy enough as an initial leave-in on freshly washed hair.(Which is not surprising as even the manufacturers do not recommend that this product is used on wet hair.).Great leave-in when combined with heavier, more moisturising gels like KCCC. Great coil clumper/popper.I would definitely repurchase again.
