Cost: $9.00 per 8oz

I had first tried this on her dry hair which was previously shampooed conditioned and air dried... Then as i go to spray it i noticed that the pump is hard to spray or at least harder than i was used to. I noticed right away a sunflower like smell that had some hard to pin point scents to it.

As i began spritzing, it was taking a very decent sized amount to coat her hair and i had to pump alot to get adequate product.  I got a somewhat oily residue on my hands after using the spray and finger combing it into her hair.  But you can see that it did at least show up in her hair ...

Her curls were lightly misted and had a sheen to them, i was still wondering at this point where the leave in element comes in at, as i was expecting a sort of moisturized and or conditioned feeling.

The look was nice and her hair felt nice and light.  These feelings lasted as long as the spritz didn't soak in and her hair dry and frizz out in the process.  It would take a few applications worth as i went through a day especially if she was playing or outside.  This isn't a "made-for-children" product so i didn't expect for it to be 100% on my daughters hair nor her hair type at that.  BUT i didn't give up and i decided to try it out on her dampened/wet hair also as a styling leave in spritz as i find that most of the time that is the best condition to apply leave in products in to. 

Here are the results from one of the times that i used this spritz on Diva R's hair as she was right out of the bath... The first picture below is a before application picture and the one following is an after application picture...

As you can see it faired just slightly better this time around as in the second picture her curls seem more elongated and defined. I'm still thinking that this is just like a gloss spray or temporary moisture spray just like the Curls Lavish Moisturize Spritz that we had a bit ago which didn't work well for my Divas hair either.  The effect that it had seemed to diminish quickly there after her hair dried.  So i drew the conclusion that maybe this product isn't for us. Ive read some great reviews from varying stand points on this spray so these types of experiences can truly differ person to person.


Z wanted a pic taken of his hair too so i obliged <3


** This review is from a collective stand point over the time that i used this product and i felt that this product just isn't for us, it may be great for someone else, i had noticed some rather less desirable ingredients and i can say that I'm very picky with that personally... I'm still on my hunt for the perfect spritz moisturizer **
