We’ve been happily testing Ellin Lavar’s Textures Penetrating Balm this past week. If you have very curly or coarse, thick hair or extremely dry hair, you must try this.
I have very thin, wavy hair but my daughter’s are both bi-racial and have very dry, curly hair. I’ve been using this on girl2004 when I give her braids and it works out well. It keeps her hair very shiny and I’ve noticed she doesn’t have flyaways within her braids as much when we use this product.
When her hair is down and loose I use various leave in conditioners that aren’t too greasy or will weigh down the curls.
I also tried this on myself but it was very greasy and weighed my hair down… remember I’m not the target audience on this! Nevertheless, I am pleased with the effects of the penetrating balm and can recommend it to anyone with very dry or naturally curly hair.
