Scent: The scent is not my favorite; it smells woodsy with a hint of citrus.

Consistency: Liquid. It comes in a spray bottle.

My Experience: If you follow me on instagram (@curlsandmo) then you saw my blow out and Bantu knot *attempt*. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of the finished style but I did get an amazing head full of curls. I made the mistake of not using a holding product and of course that day was humid. Soooo Bantu Knot Out + Humidity = Afro (aka NOT Corporate). I had to pin my hair back when I got to work.

That night I didn’t know what to do with it. I contemplated Bantu knots again then decided on two strand twists…but with what? Then I remembered this product. I was hesitant when I first saw this in my curlBOX Natural because I’ve never seen liquid hair milk before. I two strand twisted my hair and when I took them down in the morning I was IN LOVE. I still can’t believe how amazing the results were. This picture doesn’t do it any justice.

Pros: This product delivers! It is moisturizing and honestly saved me from a crazy hair mishap. It also comes in a travel size so that’s convenient if you travel a lot.

Cons: The scent. It’s hard on the nose – for me – but some people might like it.

Final Thoughts: This is a wonderful product. Now I know what all the hype is about. I look forward to trying more products from this line.
