Review: I first heard about Eden Body Works products when I was researching the web prior to my big chop. And I had my eye on this DC basically from the get go. My only question was : what is the easiest (and cheapest) way to get my hands on it ? Fortunately for me, I found it when I least expected it. Last March, I was in Paris for the Natural Hair Academy, and there it was… Right there in front of my eyes.



Pure awesomeness.

So I was R.E.A.D.Y. to try it as soon as I got home. I washed my hair and opened the jar, only to discover that my sensitive nose didn’t like the smell of this product. A sort of flowery-minty scent that reminded me of the type of medicine you use when you catch a cold. Bummer… It was not horrible, but I really wasn't expecting this. However (and this is the best part), I LOOOOOVED the texture! Let me repeat this for the people in the back who were not paying attention: I LOVE IT! This deep conditioner is thick, has great slip and is easy to distribute throughout the hair. After application, I put my plastic cap on and let it sit for 30 minutes. Once rinsed out, my hair felt so soft and extremely moisturized. And the smell doesn't linger at all! So yeah, this product is definitely a winner and it has been one of my go-to DCs ever since.

Will I buy it again? Yes!!!

Rating: 4.5/5
