Review: If you like the smell of pure cocoa, you will love the smell of Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee as it smells very much like an old-fashioned cocoa butter stick.
The product texture is thick and creamy with a slight texture to it.
I used the product as a leave-in conditioner by applying section by section prior to twisting my hair in large twist to air dry.
I was afraid it was going to cause a serious acne flair up because by the next morning. I had a sore spot on the side of my forehead and thought for sure that a big pimple was on the way. Luckily, it passed with and I didn't suffer any major outbreaks.
The product left my hair well conditioned and very moisturized. I found the product to leave my forehead a little oily the first couple of days, which I HATE.
I LOVE Qhemet Biologics Amla/Olive Heavy Cream, Olive/Honey Hydrating Balm, and Amla Oil Pomade and have used all three successfully for quite some time. The retail price is $14 for 5 ounces for so I jumped at the chance to try the product for $10 with shipping when I was contacted directly by a member of Naturally Curly's Curltalk forum.
I will not be purchasing the product again as I didn't like the overly greasy feel but am thrilled that I had the opportunity to try it.
