I think Spinta24 on youtube reviewed those a while back but I don't remember what her impression was of them. Let us know how it goes for ya. It seems like alot of brands are trying to bank in on the whole "natural" thing, but looking at the ingredient list, there are more un-natural ingredients than natural ones. But I like how the good ingredients are towards the top of the list!

I look forward to hearing your review. I questioned the Isopropyl Alcohol, but it is so far down on the list, it is probably part of the fragrance section.

The bananas and coconut milk conditioner ingredients are really interesting. I'd like to know how it smells, whether the scent is very strong. I am sensitive to strong scents, they give me major allergy and headache issues.

the natural "phenom" is banging right now....women of color invest a LOT in their hair care and they know it. there is a lot going on with the ingredients but like you said most of the "good" ones are at the top. and for $1 and some change....its worth a shot.

Yes, the 'cones and parabens made me pause. I can buy products with 'cones & parabens at Walgreens. I do like the oils at the top of the list though - thats a start!
