Creation's Garden are the all-natural brand which offer a myriad of products using both nature and science to create hair and skin care ranges, which work.
I like to think I'm quite up to date with hair care products, especially with organic brands, and I usually buy my hair products from trusted retailers. I was, however, having a look at the beauty products in T K Maxx, when I spotted Creation's Garden supposedly natural Leave in Conditioner.
I checked out the ingredients list, and to my surprise it contains 90% organic certified ingredient such as Argan oil, Macadamia nut oil, acai, ginger root, and a host of other natural ingredients.
Curiosity spiked, I paid £5.00 for the seemingly large bottle of hair stuff.
I'm always dubious about the so-called difference between conditioner and leave-in conditioner. One might infer that leave-in conditioner is less thick, and easier to work through the hair. Personally, I never see a difference, but if there's a choice between leave-in and normal conditioner, for everyday use, I'll buy the leave-in.
The first thing which struck me was the way the product smells. It's absolutely divine. It has a coconutty scent, probably due to the inclusion of coconut oil in the ingredients list. Unlike a lot of other hair products, this leave-in conditioner only uses essential oils for fragrance.
Generally leave-in-conditioners leave my hair with a relatively 'dry' finish, which I like as opposed to slightly 'wet' hair, which can be very annoying. This particular conditioner was no different.
I only used a small amount for each section of my hair, and although quite lotion-like, and not very thick in texture, it moisturised my hair well.
The product itself only takes about 2 minutes to really sink into the hair, which is a first for me. Usually, no matter organic or non, hair conditioners can take a while to sink into my hair. There isn't a very thick white residue, which can occur with some hair conditioners, but because the product is quite natural it sinks into the hair surprisingly better than other products I've used.
Once distributed throughout my hair, the result are soft, nourished curls. It can be difficult to explain the different results certain products yield, but instead of curls which are heavy with product, my mass of bush was transformed from a dry morning mess, to defined, yet soft and not 'crunchy' curls, which I have experienced in the past.
If you don;t have curly hair, you don't know, but for readers who do struggle with bushy manes, you'll understand what I mean with the next sentence. Creation's Garden leave in conditioner works a treat on washed, dry hair. If you've just washed your hair however and your barnet is still a little bit damp, work the product into your hair, and you'll get a looser, spiral curl.
I know I've already mentioned this, but the most satisfying thing about this product, aside from the way it makes my hair look, is the scent. Of the few times I have used this product, work colleagues, and family members have commented that I smell 'tropical', and like 'sunshine'. I question their use of adjectives, but accept it as compliments that my hair smelled, and hopefully, looked nice.
