Curls-Understood-Eden-Body-Works-Coconut-Shea-Leave-In-Conditioner

My Experience:

I have applied the product to both freshly washed and second and third day hair with stunning results.  The product had great slip and easily detangled my coily, wavy tresses.  I was amazed that on, especially wet or damp hair, it took very little of the product to produce soft, vibrant, and bouncy tresses,

It has always been my custom to mist my hair at night and apply a leave-in of one brand or another.  Each night I midst hair, make eight sections, apply the leave-in and loosely twist hair to prevent tangling while sleeping, and I cover hair with a clear conditioning cap.

In the Morning:

I take off the clear conditioning cap and shake hair.  My tresses are slightly damp and is easily manipulate.  So, I'll shape into style and get ready for work.  In the winter I will slightly change the routine to prepare hair as noted above but will allow hair to "completely" dry and either wrap hair or cover hair with a scarf for the night.

Pros:

  • Price Point - A little goes a long way
  • Can Be Found on the Ground Easily
  • Fragrance is mild and pleasant
  • Coconut Oil -- Easily Absorbed in Tresses
  • Great Moistuizer
  • Hair Is Beautifully Soft, Shiny, and Bouncy
  • Has Given Me More "Stretch" to My Strands
  • Can Replace the Higher Priced "Kinky Curly Knot Today" Leave-In

Cons:

  • If Too Much is Used; Product Will Cause Hair to Be Sticky

Will I Repurchase?

Yes, I'm very pleased and have already decided to swap out or give away excess products to make room in my cabinet for the complete line of Eden Body Works!  My search is over for my Holy Grail products, but that doesn't mean I won't flirt with new ones!

Until next time!  Please remember to leave a comment, note, or a description of your experience with Eden Body Works products.

Happy Curls to You!

Today, I have the pleasure of reviewing Eden's Body Works, All Natural Curl Defining Crème.  It wasn't the line's initial product I tried but the third. 

I was checking out at Walmart with my husband when a natural walked up and placed three or four items from the Eden product line.  I asked her how she liked it and she gave it glowing raves.  I picked up the Eden's Peppermint Oil from Walmart and paired it with the Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-In Conditioner.  I had great results and then decided that on my next trip to Walmart that I would procure at least the Leave-In (moisturizer).  However, I saw the Curl Defining Crème and added that to my arsenal of products!



Ingredients:

Eden BodyWorks: Water (Aqua), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butryospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, PEG-50 Shea Butter

Ingredient Analysis:
  • Aloe Vera Juice: Acts as a natural conditioning agent that restores the hair's sheen, luster, and shine. It not only makes the hair soft, but it also enhances strength and suppleness.
  • Cetyl & Stearyl Alcohol: Fatty alcohols and emollient conditioners known for giving products a creamy, thick texture and feel.
  • Shea Butter: Emollient fat from the nut of the East or West African shea nut tree, used to moisturize and soften hair.
  • PEG-50 Shea Butter: Emulsifying form of shea butter that is water soluble, and commonly used in water-based products.

My Experience:

I cowashed with Tresemme Naturals and rinse and applied the Eden Leave-In (moisturizer), followed it up with the Eden Peppermint Oil, and then applied the Eden All Natural Curl Defining Crème.

When applying, I separated and sectioned my hair into four sections, and then I applied the Defining Crème using the Tightly Curly method and allowed the hair to dry.

The curl formation and definition was "off the chain!"  I was so excited and pleased with this new line of products.



After going out for the evening, I took the Leave-In and squeezed about a 50-cent size of product and  split my hair and applied the product to the sections and then pulled hair back and smooth onto the hairline in front and back.  I then pulled hair into a pineapple and covered with a clear shower cap.

Next Morning:  (Second Day Hair)

Hair was damp, so I shook out and I applied "cool" water to sections that I wanted to manipulate and allowed hair to finish drying.  "I'm in Love!" 

As The Day Wears On:

I am amazed how moisturized and soft my hair is.  It's bouncy, shiny, and soft to the touch! 

Would You Purchase Again?

This line is definitely a keeper and I will be not only be repurchasing the Curl Defining Crème but I will also be purchasing the cowash product also.

Pros:

  • On the Ground Availability (Walmart, Walgreens, and Targets)
  • Pricing is Great $7.99 to $9.99
  • Line Has 3 Coordinating Scents
          Jojoba Monoi (Brown Caps); Coconut Shea (Black Caps); & Peppermint Tea Tree (Green
          Caps)

Cons:
  • When I initially went to pick up the Eden's Leave-In, there were only 2 bottles on the shelf.  I attempted to squeeze the bottle to see how product flowed and it was "caked" on the top and wouldn't flow.  I chose the second bottle and it "flowed" well.  I would advise you to check the bottle before leaving the store.
 
I hope you enjoyed the review.  Let me know what your experience with Eden's Natural Hair Line has been!

Until next time, as always!

Happy Curls to You!
