Both of these products smell delicious. I can't pin point the fragrance, but I smell citrus. These products left my hair SOOO soft and moisturized and my twist out and braid out were SUPER cute and big and defined just the way I like them. I would definitely purchase the afro stretch cream. I don't think it elongated my hair more than any other product I have used in the past, but it did offer lasting definition. As much as I enjoyed the lotion, I am not sure if I would purchase just because I already have so many leave ins that I enjoy using. However, it is great for detangling and again, made my hair super soft. I love that this brand breaks its products into hair categories. Though I do not know my hair type and I don't think hair typing is very useful, I do know of so many women who find the hair typing system very helpful in their journey. The hair lotion is formulated for Type 3 curls and the afro stretch cream is for Type 4 curls, but they are both definitely worth a try. Thanks to you 4Naturals for selecting me to review these products because I thoroughly enjoyed them!!
Till next time,
Live. Laugh. Love Thrift.
