My Thoughts:  I was contacted by Ashley, the Mahogany Queen creator, and informed that she was in the beginning stages of her hair care business and asked if I would review her product.  Of course I said yes!!  When the sample arrived the first thing I noticed was the consistency.  For some reason I was expecting more of a butter texture.  Instead it was more like a grease.  The next thing I noticed was the scent, it has a very light sweet, citrus scent with a touch of honey.  It smelled so good I quickly dabbed some in my 3 day old braid out to see what it could do and i didn't like it.  It made my hair very oily and every time I touched my hair I had to wash my hands afterwards.  I was disappointed but I decided to give it another and see how it performed on my wet hair.  I co-washed with Desert Essence Italian Red Grape Conditioner and fingercombed under running water. 

Once out of the shower I applied a small amount of MQHCS to my hair and then sectioned my hair off for a set of 2 strand twists.  To each section I applied a small amount of OyinHandmade Honey Hemp Conditioner as a leave in and Aubrey Organics Moisturizing Jelly for hold, ran my Denman through to smooth the products through and began to twist.  Before reaching the ends of the twits I applied a little more MQHCS to my hair for extra shine and moisture.

Being lazy I left the twists in for 2 days before unraveling.  To take them down I slicked my fingers with a little MQHCS to minimize frizz and here are the results...

And after 2 days of constant hand in hair, the sleek and tamed twist out got bigger....

...but I love the bigness.  My final thought is that I really like this product, but it definitely cannot be used on my dry hair.  I also think it would be great to moistuurize the scalp with.  have you tried this product, if so how did you like it?
