I went to CVS 2 weeks ago and picked up a bottle of Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch leave-in creme. I only bought this because I've been hearing so much good reviews on it, that i just had to try it out. I got it for $7.99 at CVS which is not really bad. I was a little confused on how to use it because it says "Leave-In" creme. Whenever a product says "Leave-In", i automatically think that its something i have to use on the day i wash my hair ONLY, so i got a little bit confused. I did some research and came to find out that it's just a name...i don't HAVE to use it as a leave-in. Many women use it as a moisturizer because its lightweight and also because it contains water and glycerin. I thought i would test it out to see if my hair agreed with it or not. My regular moisturizers consist of S-curl and Elasta QP Mango butter, but i pushed them to the side for 2 weeks to test out the NTM. It's really light, and a little runny, but smells gooodd!! I used it the same night i bought it. My hair was freshly relaxed, so i thought i would use it then. I applied a nickel size amount to my hand and worked it through my whole head, then wrapped it up. The next morning, my hair felt really soft and bouncy and had a great shine to it! I liked what i saw, so i kept on using it. I moisturize with it twice a day (morning & night) and seal with coconut oil. Today makes it 2 weeks since I've been using it and my hair is really silky and flowy =] I even tried to test the elasticity of my hair to see how well it worked. I got a strand of my hair from my comb and tried to break it by pulling it apart and it took a while to break..which means my hair has elasticity! When your hair has elasticity, it is less prone to breakage. Try this creme for yourself ladies! I use it on dry hair, even though the directions on the label say to use it on wet hair, it doesn't really matter. See if your hair likes it!
