Big Thanks to Darcy's for this blessing!! I have washed Diva R's hair the night before and used our regular shampoo and leave in, so i spritzed her hair the late morning of the following day until it was thoroughly damp. Then i scooped out a quarter size amount and started on the left half of her head and only put it on her mids through her ends where the majority of her curls are.  This styling cream is recommended for braids, twists, curls and waves. This is why i didn't apply this from her roots on because by the description i figured it would be slightly heavier in nature. 
So as usual i finger combed it in half by half and used just under two quarter sized amounts total. I do like the texture of this moisturizer and feel that it is a good moisturizer, its not real thin nor thick but i would say that between the two it leans closer to the medium thick side consistency wise. If your one for fragrance this would be great for you... I do feel the fragrance could be toned down a bit.  I think this is great with braids, twists and the like, it keeps moisture in while in a style and it is good on damp and dry hair equally from our perspective. 

The definition i was very pleased with, as you can tell by the picture i tried it on her naturally flowing curls first. I do like it on her flowing free style but i do feel this works best in a style. Even in braid outs this is great, it even had a decent hold as well. It hasn't left a residue behind nor left her hair greasy or heavy. It just feels like a lotion has been applied to my hands which is not bad at all.

I LOVE this best of all Darcy's Products that Ive tried, It is one of our bi-daily go to products for a great moisturizing which will last!!!

Please excuse the blurry above picture my camera has moods lol  BUT you can still see the finished product and her hair was well maintained and it kept a good composure throughout the day.
