Liv Creme Hairdressing and Conditioner
I've been using this stuff since i was a child, it transforms hair! i am biracial, and have thick, curly, long hair. it seals in moisture, and is definitely a staple in my hair products. it is almost the only thing i use besides some curls unleashed gel when I'm wearing my hair down. when you start out it is a little heavy, and will take your hair a bit to get used to. evenly apply it, stick to a schedule and you will see results! it keeps my split ends it check too.

Great Product and Value for my hair needs
This product is a wonderful oldie but goodie to have. My hair is very lightly texlaxed which means it is one step from natural and I still have my coils just as the same but with no frizz. After using many natural products, joining the mineral oil ban on my hair, I realized why break what isn't broken. This product gives my hair such pliability, health and shine and seals it perfectly without the greasy after effects. My styles, especially when I where it straight, last through humid Chicago weather and it helps me keep the heated appliances out of my hair.
I know that everyone says that mineral oil is bad, but from research, I don't think it's bad at all, I just think that it's our non education of how to use it properly made it seem like the easy one to blame for our hair problems.
When you use a product like this, remember to use very little at a time and wash the hair properly to open the cuticle for moisture...then seal with this and repeat in about 3 days to a week. I also noticed that when I use this and wash my hair, each time, my hair is softer and more easy to manage due to it locking in more moisture from the water used in the wash.
This product is a hair saver for me and my once thin and now thick and long hair owe all of it to the use of this product to seal my hair. I always make sure to order 2 at a time of this! :)

I don't use this every day. nor on a regular basis because yes it can make your hair greasy. and heavy and weighed down. I use it when I don't feel like keeping my hair up with the relaxers or I am in-between relaxers and my hair to me seems too dry . I will use it at night. wrap my hair up in a scarf and in the morning my hair is soft and manageable.

A oldie but goodie product for my dry hair
I usually opt for natural products because I read that mineral oils and petroleum was bad for the hair and all that noise. But it seems lately that shea butter and other natural oils and butters wasn't enough for my hair.
One product line that is sold almost exclusively at big box stores (rhymes with Marget) and select drugstores (rhymes with Halgreens) moisturize my hair for about a day but the shea butter and coconut oil forms solidifies when cold air hit it. Not winter friendly at all for me. Plus my ends was feeling brittle and chewed up. Admittedly I need to trim my ends but I don't have the cash right now.
Enter Liv hairdressing creme. This, paired with a light misting of rosewater, locks in moisture for my hair for at least three days. Admittedly I need to use a sulfate shampoo to remove it because it does buildup quickly. Since it contains lanolin, it does soften my hair which I like.
Granted it contains all of the forbidden ingredients for naturally curly/kinky hair. A little goes a long way so this jar will last me for years. I will admit that it does smell funny, but I have used worse smelling products so this is bearable.
