I have natural 4b hair and I not so long ago ran out of my popular each and everyday moisturizer. With the cognition of knowing how important it is to have my hair type moisturized daily to prevent breakage I had to find an substitute to hold me over until I could order my favored moisturizer. I went through various tried in failed attempts to discover what would work best.
The basi thing I tried was misting my hair with plain waiter followed by the little amount of moisturizer that was left. By the time my hair exclusively dried, my hair was hard and dry. I then tried applying conditioner to my hair and water. The same result followed: dry, hard hair.
So I decisive to use another moisturizer that I had on hand. I didn’t in truth like this moisturizer because it is more of a moisturizing liquid spray, rather of a cream or lotion. Used alone this moisturizer would leave my hair sentiment finelooking hard when it dried. The moisturizer I am referring to is the CURLS Quenched Curls Moisturizer.
I introductory used plain water to mist my hair so it was damp all over. I then took the Quenched Curls Moisturizer and sprayed assorted squirts allround my hair. I massaged the moisturizer in my hair from root to tip and combed my hair with a wide tooth comb. I then took a dollop of raw shea butter(the yellow kind), rubbed it in my hands to melt it and employed it section by division into my hair, getting more shea butter as needed. I at last combed my hair once again to disseminate the shea butter evenly and my afro looked lovely.
Q. Even though my hair was soft now, how would it feel once it was dry?
A. After a few hours my hair still felt soft and moisturized.
Q. The following day?
A. My hair still felt soft and moisturized.
I was astonished at this revelation of how beneficial shea butter may actually be in black hair!
Natural raw shea butter acts as a natural conditioner and sealant. It seals in the much necessitated moisture into our hair, strengthens it and imparts a natural shine. You may also use it for twists and braids. I commend all black women to introduce shea butter to portion of their hair care procedure whether you are all natural or relaxed. Your hair will gain from it no matter what!
For the above regimen, any moisturizer may be used. You may likewise buy a bottle of Pure Aloe Vera Juice and Vegetable Glycerin. Next measure 1 cup each of pure water, aloe vera, and the vegetable glycerin into a spray bottle. This is a great substitute to the Quenched Curls Moisturizer. Make sure you refrigerate this mixture, and use it in when it comes to a week because it holds no preservatives.

I love this hand cream! I have a terrible problem with dry, cracked knuckles in the wintertime. This cream gave my hands a “silky” feel without being greasy. (I’m a secretary, and I don’t want to leave oily marks on papers.) I will definitely make sure I always have a tube of L’Occitane available.

Great Hand Lotion
By Olga P.
I work with patients in a hospital setting and wash my hands at least 15-20 times a day. My hands are often dry and chapped. I’ve tried everything: Eucerin, Vaseline, Cetaphyl, etc but nothing has come close to this cream. I got it as a gift from a coworker and haven’t stopped using it since. It’s rich (not watery like Cetaphyl or Eucerin) and absorbs quickly. Doesn’t leave a sheen or film after use. The size is small and convenient; perfect for sticking in your pocketbook or lab coat. Others have commented on the diaper cream smell but I find it quite pleasant and mild. Overall, would recommend this hand cream highly. The only downside is the price. But it’s so good it’s worth it. I got it around Christmas; 1 month later I’d say it’s still 1/3rd full.
Side Note: I also ordered the 25% shea butter lotion in the 7oz jar figuring it would be very similar to the 20% in the 1oz tubes. It’s actually not the same at all. The 25% is much richer and leaves an oily film which stays on my hands until I wash them. I feel it in particular if they sweat a little and when I go to wash my hands they feel slimy. This doesn’t happen with the 20% in the 1oz tubes. It’s absorbed right away and there’s no oily film or slimy feeling even when I wash my hands 5 minutes later. Will be returning the 25% shea in the 7oz jar.

Hand cream that really works
By Turned to Real Life
This is by far the best hand cream I’ve ever encountered. It is very thick and as the other reviewer said, it does moisturize your hands without a greasy feeling. In addition, this hand cream has a nice smell that isn’t too strong. I keep my L’Occitane tube at work and a few co-workers tried it after curiosity had the best of them; they all liked it as well! I am definitely going to stick with this product for a while.
