This review covers the entire collection, but the next two pages are dedicated to the best sellers in the bunch.
Hair Gel: Looking for non-crunchy hold and incredible sheen? Then this argan oil-containing gel should meet your needs. It's not a thick concoction, so there's no worry about a heavy feel. A little of this gel goes a long way, so I had to be careful about not applying too much. Once you get a feel for how much gel you need, expect your curls to maintain their flexibility while being pretty well-defined.
Hair Cream: This is one of my favorites in the bunch because it can work on any texture or length. It's a very thick moisturizer that you can apply to hair and scalp. Best for damp or dry hair, this cream would work just as well on a TWA as it would on long lengths. Use it to add sheen and softness to a short 'fro, moisture and softness to a longer afro and moisture without hold on braids and twists.
Moisture Mist: Refresh curls with this lightweight mist, so if your hair is often plagued by "second day syndrome", a few spritzes will wake up your curls and prepare them for styling. It's also useful for detangling no matter how long your tresses are.
Butter Love: Ah, just as thick and firmly creamy as the original Hair Butter, this is just what you need when creating long-lasting twists or braids, which can then be released into twist-outs and braid-outs. It makes a great stand-in for pomade when you want to smooth down your hairline without anything that dries hard.
