In Review: Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Conditioner

2:38 PM

Product Description: Nubian Heritage's Coconut & Papaya Conditioner is Nubian Heritage's tribute to the tropics where the coconut palm and papaya have been a part of daily life for millions of people over the course of thousands of years.   Coconut oil is naturally rich with minerals, vitamins and, most importantly, fatty acids.   Coconut oil naturally strengthens, thickens and nourishes hair, penetrating and helping prevent the loss of protein.  Nubian Heritage's Coconut & Papaya Conditioner is a deep hair treatment infused with nutrients and deep cleansers like Kaolin Clay.  Seals the cuticles to help protect hair. and keep it lustrous and healthy.  Papaya contains papain, a naturally occurring enzyme that works on dead skin cells on the scalp to gently loosen them and allow them to be washed away. Your scalp is left clean and healthy.  Removing the dead skin cells helps stimulate circulation leading to increased blood flow and speeding hair growth.
Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Papaya maintain the proper moisture level in hair and scalp preventing over drying.  Vitamin B and Coconut Milk gently condition hair leaving it soft, smooth and manageable.

Cost: 8 oz.bottle for $9.95 @, $8.00 at my local beauty supply

My Thoughts:  I have mixed feelings about this one.  As a conditioner this product just didn't do it for me.  Judging by how the product looked in the bottle I was expecting a thicker consistency and for it to give me lots of slip.  Unfortunately that wasn't the case.  Like I said many times before I like my conditioners THICK, especially if I'm using it after a shampoo.  And with all the yummy ingredients, my hair didn't feel all that moisturized. 

Now I'm not one to throw away a product, especially not a conditioner, even if it doesn't perform well.  I'll try to find some way to use it.  So last week while trying to figure out what to use on my hair for a twist-out, this product found its way out off the shelf.  I co-washed my hair ( I can't remember what I used for that), sectioned in to 6, and applied Evoo throughout paying close attention to my ends.  I then took a nice palm full of conditioner and applied it to each section and began to twist.  Let it dry overnight and unraveled the next day.  My hair was fluffy, moisturized and defined.  Oh yeah, it smelled delicious too.  So I'll be using the rest of it as a leave in/styler until it's gone, not sure if I'll be repurchasing yet.  Check the pics below....

And after my hands got into it
