Where to buy/Price:
I bought it at my local beauty supply store for £4.99

Love it or leave it?
Ok I'm  gonna have to be honest and say that... I felt so darn good when buying this, I haven't really bought the most 'hyped' product before (with the exception of my oh so loved shea butter) by that I mean Kinky Kurly, Oyin Handmade, BeeMine etc. Because I am a student and I don't have the funds to pay £30 plus for a bitesize jar of nothingness... (although I would love to own that jar of nothingness hihi) I know its very sad.
So anywayy... hmph, this is the hype? I mean really? I tried it on 3 occasions and after that I really dont have the patience to try it out again.
The first time, I tried it on dry clean hair - I applied it a little bit on a small section and when that did nothing I applied it to the rest of my hair and sealed it with EVOO and nothing - It was dry and just really awkward...
The second time was on slightly damp clean hair, I was so confident it was going to work this time, but nope no different than the last time. Now I was really confused because everything works quite well with water... hmm
The last time I tried it was on dirty hair I thought it could be more receptive with dirt. lol. Still no result.
But I still like it though, at least I want to like it everything about it is so prettyful and nice, it smells nice feels nice and the actual butter itself looks good enough to spread it on toast! So I was really hopeful but I won't be using this for a while that is until I've found a way to put it to good use like shave my legs with it... or something.
Conclusion. Leave it... for now



Ratings:
Package design: 5/5
Nice curves, fairly simplistic layout and good use of white space (not overcrowded) I like a product that doesn't need to be overwhelmed with jibber jabber to sell and this product does exactly that. Sans serif font is used (Helvetica FTW!) although in this case I think the font may be Gill Sans? It's too stylised (I think) to be Arial or Helvetica... *Exit Graphic Design Talk*
 I like the packaging I think it's simple and attractive although the actual container could be improved.

Touch: 4/5
When I first opened it, it looked all soft and buttery and ready to mingle with my hair. Now. When I scooped it out of the container it was deceivingly solid and when I applied it to my hair, my hair turned white! I noticed that it was thick, You know like when you haven't properly melted Shea butter before applying it to you hair? Yes exactly that. Really weird because I though it was gonna melt in my hands and give my hair a soft sheen or something!

Smell: 3/5
It smell like black hair products. lol it really does, you might be raising your eyebrows but this is my opinion and I was reminded of back in the days of getting my hair done... which isn't what I want to be reminded of when I do my hair lol. But it smells okay other than that it's a bit overpowering though.


Sight: 5/5
A pale yellow appearance, smooth that is deceivingly quite hard.
