REVIEW: Koils By Nature Ultra-Moisturizing CocoAloe Deep Conditioner

Back during the summer, I attended a lot of natural hair events. Because of this, I picked up a lot of products along the way. One of my favorite brands of products I have tried, Koils by Nature.

We (my cousin, mother, and I) actually got a chance to meet the owner and creator of the brand at one event, Pam. She is a very funny and spirited woman. She also did a great workshop and share some wonder tips about moisture.

Anyway, 1 of the 3 products I picked up from this brand was the Ultra-Moisturizing CocoAloe Deep Conditioner. Since I have an addiction to DC-ing, I had to get my hands on it.
It comes in a 12  oz. bottle and retails at $18 [but at the event I paid $15].

This is an all natural deep condish that claims to be great for retaining moisture and adding shine to dry, brittle, damaged hair. My hair was previous heat & chemically damaged so from reading the bottle, this would be just what the doctor subscribed. And although I am not an ingredient snob, I did appreciate the abundance of natural ingredients in this product.

It took me about 2 months to get around to using the product [yes I had that many other DC's I wanted to try, lol] but when I did get around to it...and got through the bottle...I was a little disappointed.
The smell was heavenly and the consistency was thick and creamy as you would expect a DC to be.
I took me about a month n a half to use the entire bottle, not too bad.
My first application was the best. The detangling was easy but not great. And the slippage provided was mediocre as well.
Then I rinsed out my hair and it was only slightly softer than with I use the $1.50 Suave Naturals Coconut Condish...yea. I was just not impressed.
Further more, the uses after the first, the softness didn't increase and the product did not better itself.

Overall, I give it a 4 out of 5 curls. It did work and moisturize but I have had better deep conditioners.
Try it for yourself and their other products as well. I have two more products from this brand with reviews coming soon...and a bit more positive, lol.
