I Tried this Leave-In Conditioner --- & the Scent made my Baby Cry

Sunday, December 03, 2017

'Twas Thanksgiving Day. We were at a friend's. My baby helped the host entertain the guests (through his cute little smiles) 'til hunger pangs hit. I picked him up and boom! he cried inconsolably. 

"Is he shy with so many people?" The host (our friend) is kind enough to offer their room to feed the baby there and so we went. But still, he wouldn't stop crying. I tried to console him, but he's not having it. 

Until daddy came in. Snatched him from mommy's arm and offered to feed him instead. Phew! That solved the crying situation. The culprit? The scent of mommy's leave-in conditioner.

Hair Tangles & Post-partum Hair Loss

I have thin, dry frizzy hair. I've been shedding a lot post-partum. Combing my hair scares the living daylights out of me. Seriously, they go by the hundreds. I tried a few leave-in conditioners to help detangle my hair and this, Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Leave-in Conditioner actually works.

However, that scent, (oh-that-scent) made my 5-month-old cry. My 31-year-old (the husband, I mean) isn't thrilled either. It's not that bad actually, but it can be strong.

In Summary

Pros:

  • Affordable. It's less than $15.
  • Helps detangle my hair. Leaving it soft and moisturized.

Cons:
  • The scent can be strong, but it isn't bad.
  • I tried applying it to hair that isn't washed for days and it looks greasy, felt heavy too. It's best applied to newly washed, towel-dried hair.

I cannot say for sure if it helps lessens/resits hair breakage, I'm going through post-partum hair loss at the moment. :(
