Awesome leave in coditioner
This stuff has saved my hair! I have been coloring my hair for years, also its thick and wavy and let me just tell you that this stuff is awesome. A little goes a long way I use about a dime size all over and my hair instantly feels better, it becomes softer not as tangled and less frizzy.

I made it better by adding coconut oil when applying.

i was unsure about ordering this product based on other reviews. i did not want a tube of grease or anything sticky. i wished i had ordered earlier. city water has left my hair dry and sad to look at. never mind trying to style it. after countless products trying to restore moisture to my hair without dulling it/ weighing it down Alba is working.

I have been looking for something that would moisturize my coily, o-shaped strands (afro hair) without being greasy, would NOT contain shea butter, almond oil, jojoba oil, fragrance or many other ingredients that I am sensitive to and I have FINALLY found it. It DOES contain a few herbal extracts, but these seem to be compatible with my scalp. I DO go through this product fairly quickly, as I placed my order for the tube on the 30th of October and it is now the 12th of November and I am getting low. I DO use it DAILY and my hair never feels greasy. I LOVE the slippery feel on my hair which will help me with the tangles as my hair gets longer. I use this to refresh my smushed afro in the morning. I WILL say that it leaves a white residue on my hair initially, but dries clear. I apply a lot to get the desired result, but this product is fairly inexpensive, so it doesn't break my bank. I also LOVE the softness that my hair ha after it dries. This is the total package of leave-ins for me and I hope they NEVER stop making it because it has taken me almost 10 years to find this product.

good, not great
I was loooking for a leave-in that would give me the wet and soft look without the hardness of most sprays. This does that but just not enought. I have to put allot on to accomplish what I want. It is a good product though and I will probably try it again.

Soft and Fluffy
Extremely pleased. Leaves hair moist and soft even in high humidity. I have natural, coily hair and I've tried at least a dozen extremely expensive conditioners. None of them leave my hair soft and moisturized like Alba leave-in conditioner. I"ve even hooked my in-laws on the product. I'm happily supporting their habbit.

Very good product
Saw the great reviews and I was in need of a leave in conditioner so I decided to try this one out. I'm African American with kinky hair and this worked pretty well for me. I like all of the ingredients and it's a nice thick cream so a little will go a long way. I just wish they had a bigger size. I can easily go through this in less than a month considering my hair type.

Great LeaveIn & FANTASTIC MOISTURIZING SHAVE CREAM
This is a wonderfully moisturizing leave-in. It doesn't do anything at all for holding the hair, unfortunately (I have to use a separate product for that), but it DOES add moisture and helps to tame the frizzies. I prefer unscented products as fragrances are so damaging to health, and this one certainly fills the bill there! Only use a small amount or else it will weigh down the hair. Very nice product. HUGE BONUS: I decided to try this product as a shave cream in the shower as I was running low on my usual product, and I found it worked every bit as well, actually even better, as my normal shave cream! You just use a pea-size amount for one lower leg, for example, and it easily spreads out to cover the entire area well. After shaving, it completely and quickly rinses away, leaving soft, moisturized skin! I have used nothing else for shaving but this cream ever since I made that discovery! Then I suggested it to my husband for shaving, and now this is his only shave cream too!

Great leave-in for Afro-textured hair!
This leave-in is conditioner perfect for my Afro-textured, tightly coiled hair. It's creamy, slippery (great for detangling), super moisturizing, non-greasy, dissolves into the hair easily and has (mostly) natural ingredients. It works well on dry or damp hair.
P.S. I've heard it compared to Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Milk/Ambrosia. I haven't tried the aforementioned but I thought it might help someone out to know it's a similar product.

This product is excellent! I buy coconut oil for everything else, and use it in my hair, but eventually, you have to wash it out. When I do, this is perfect for putting it back in, without actually having greasy looking hair. It feels wonderful and works excellent.

Best conditioner EVER
I have longer, dry hair. I was using the Alba Hawaiian Cocoa Butter dry hair repair conditioner and it was doing a pretty good job. I tried this just to compare and it is even better! Use a small amount, comb in well, then dry hair. It keeps my hair from being wild and frizzy and keeps the ends from splitting.

Great for dry hair
My hair seems to get dryer as I get older and rinse out conditioner does not always do the trick. I started using this product about 2 months ago and love it. Just a little bit is needed, hair is softer and much less dry.
