Several months ago I was honored to be featured on “The Good Hair Blog”, which is run by a lovely naturalista named Alex. Alex is quite talented, and is also the creator of a natural hair care line called “Safi Natural Hair Care“.
In this review, I will be taking a look at her new “Hair Heaven Leave-In”.

This creamy leave in is packed with organic raw white honey and organic argan oil. This creamy moisturizing leave in is created for dry kinks and curls that need an extra kick of hydration. The white honey in this product acts as a moisture magnet. Since it’s a humectant the honey pulls moisture from the air to the hair leave it soft and less prone to breakage. Perfect for use in hot summer months. Apply quarter sized amount to wet or dry hair and distribute evenly with a denman brush or wide tooth comb. Style as desired.
Tip: Using this product as a styling aide for twist outs and braid outs will leave your style will great definition and shine.

With all of my hair products, I always pay attention to consistency and scent along with the overall effect of the product on my hair. The “Hair Heaven Leave-In” has a light scent reminiscent of baked cookies. I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent, but it wasn’t overpowering and faded away after a while. I tried to use the product as a styling cream on freshly washed, wet hair while twisting. The product has the consistency of a butter, and I found it hard to use in twisting my hair. It didn’t blend in well with my twists and also didn’t give my hair sufficient hold while twisting. Personally, I’ve found that products that have more of a pudding-like consistency and also have a small water content work better for my twists on wet hair.
I haven’t tried this product on my dry hair yet, but could see it working well for adding a bit of shine to my braid-outs or twist-outs and also for helping to retain moisture in my styles throughout the week.
