First off I really like the ingredients in the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner. Particularly all of the oils - coconut, jojoba, safflower, and avocado. Not to mention the Vitamin E and Aloe Vera. Another thing I like is that my new growth and relaxed strands both respond positively. When I apply this to my new growth and relaxed hair, they both soften up and feel moisturized.
While the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner includes Shea Butter to seal in moisture I do like to follow up with my own sealant, either a serum or natural oil, particularly when I apply it right after a wash. The consistency is thick which is great for my thick hair, but I haven't noticed any product build-up and can use this everyday for moisturizing.
Now for the things I don't like. I'm not a fan of is the artificial coconut smell, thought it doesn't linger. Also, this product really doesn't provide any slip so I need to use a detangler before applying this.
For me right now this is a keeper. It moisturizes my hair like no other leave in ever has. Since a little goes a long way I'm still on my first bottle, but have already brought my second.
