Neutrogena Triple Moisture SilkTouch Leave- In Cream

I actually first tried this when I had a relaxer and I remember it making my hair silky, smooth and ridiculously soft when I flat ironed. So I thought why not give it another go.

It's claims:

Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave-In Cream melts effortlessly into strands, improving smoothness and manageability while diminishing fly-aways and frizz.
This silky daily cream spreads evenly, absorbing quickly to instantly soften, smooth and condition extra dry, damaged strands. Three naturally derived extracts work to defy dryness. Olive penetrates to the center of the hair strand, Meadowfoam Seed helps moisturize the middle and Sweet Almond wraps the surface. It also contains UV filters.

So how did I like it? UMMMMMM, not so much.

It smells WONDERFUL...the scent is kinda hard to explain though. Its fruity kinda like sweetened grapefruit and can almost function as a hair perfume. And the good stopped there. There wasn't really any moisture whether I applied, damp, wet, or dry and what little it did have left my hair pretty dried out. Not to mention the small bottle of six ounces is overpriced for something in the drugstore. It claims to improve texture but for me nada.

It could be because the first ingredients are water and cones(which with continued use I felt building up on my hair and becoming kinda waxy even on relaxed hair). And it has sodium hydroxide which is the main ingredient in lye relaxers. Strange. It has a whole lot of bad stuff thrown in with the good such as glycerin, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil. But the bad definitely outweighs the good.
