i've just used it twice and already noticed less shedding/breakage. must be the garlic extract. would give it a 5 if it contained more protein, but will absolutely repurchase as a light strenghtening but very moisturizing masque. light scent, creamy and decent slip. (FWIF, my hair is normal porosity and a 4 mix)
best vitamin b complex ever
Posted by Reviewer1693246 on Jun 19, 2013
this vitamin contains the various vitamin b's in a highly potent blend. this one and garden of life vitamin b complex are the only two vitamin b's i'll ever use:)
i live on this stuff

its easy to cook, tastes excellent in soups, stews or as a breakfast cereal with a little honey. pearled barley is considered a medicinal food in TCM. my acupuncurist recommends this food for several ailments. i really recommend this - and of course, iherb
i really wanted to like this product, but....

its just not that moisturizing for my 4a hair. i've tried to use it on dripping wet hair (took forever to dry). it made my hair very defined and slightly elongated, With a bit less shrinkage than for example kinky curly curling cream. i tried it for twist outs, With Giovanni leave-in Direct underneath and an oil on top. still not that moisturizing. i really really wanted to like it, as ive heard great Things about the brand, but, alas its just not moisturizing enough. am guessing it will be Perfect for anyone With curly hair,but less dry than my own hair.
useless product for my kind of hair
Posted by Reviewer1693246 on Oct 17, 2015
so, my hair is mostly 4a, coarse, medium porosity and needs lots of moisture. i used this for twist outs. it did not moisturize, i might have used nothing but a leave in and oil. it did not give my har any shine/sheen. not even sure im gonna use up the container.
miracle product for cystic acne
Posted by Reviewer1693246 on Feb 15, 2014
due to stress and hormonal imbalance i got cystic acne in my 30's. i did a round of accutane and my skin stayed clear for a long time. cue last autumn and the cystic acne returned (due to elevated cortisole levels, i am guessing). veeeery embarrasing. i've tried any-and everything otc, natural, not natural but nothing has worked as effectively as this gel. it doesnt work overnight on me, but took 2-4 weeks, and the cystic acne just disappeared gradually with minimal scarring. also seems to bleach my skin, not sure why, tho

the only drawback to this jar is that the measurements is given in american way, so i had no idea i was buying such a big jar. but, not really a problem. easy to use.

this has watery mousse-like consistency and yet it actually works quite well on my 4a hair. i use a leave in, then oil and finally wrap and roll to do my twists for a twist out. it does give me decent 2nd day hair, but no more. will buy again. would be a holy grail product with stronger hold.
works very well

not giving 5 stars due to the container. i wish it came in a tube. the cream will last for a loooong time, but would keep better in a tube insted of a jar. the retinol level works well, made me shed skin after two days of usage. be careful to start slow. i use during night. very heavy cream but not clogging my pores.

easy to sprout!
excellent product. great value for money when bought on iherb

another great line from nubian heritage. would give it a 5 if it gave a little bit hold. as it is, it gives incredible moisture and shine. to me, its more of a moisturizer than a leave in. water is the first ingredient but it is still thick and creamy, meaning theres alot of oils and butters in it as well. and no bad ingredients. would rebuy. the scent is very subtle. used this one it rained and althought my hair frizzed up it didnt shrink as much as with other products. its comparable to jane carter solution nourishing cream, except its 1/3 of the price, almost double size container, and contains strenghtening ingredients in addition to the nourishing oils and butters.
ok, i guess

cant say this product has done me any miracles. taste is decent. i use it with several powdered supplements that require vitamin c.
