Deep conditioning is an essential part of many naturals’ hair care regimen. With an array of deep conditioners targeted for different types of issues – breakage, moisture, etc., there leaves a wide selection of products to choose from.
The As I Am Hydration Elation seeks to rejuvenate your hair strands with moisturizing ingredients that also help to strengthen and repair your hair in the process. The small size of the jar may deter some, but the lasting effects of this intensive conditioner make it a must have for many.
Initial & Lasting Impressions
The As I Am Hydration Elation has a soft creamy consistency that lathered easily throughout my hair, and allowed for a fuller coverage of my strands. Like with most deep conditioners, this one works best with a hooded hair dryer to allow the ingredients to deeper penetrate your hair for more moisture. I immediately noticed a difference after one use with this deep conditioner.
Most notably, the ends of my hair felt more smoother and looked curlier/springier. After using this deep conditioner for multiple wash days, I could tell that my hair was becoming softer and the health of my ends gradually improved. The ends of my hair were more curlier, and did not feel as dry. A downside is that this product only comes in one 8 oz. jar size as of now, so it did not last me as long as other deep conditioners.
Pros & Cons
- Deeply hydrating
- Strengthens & repairs ends of hair
- Smooth consistency
- Small jar size
A moisturizing deep conditioner is a necessity when it comes to caring for and maintaining healthy natural hair. The As I Am Hydration Elation Intensive Conditioner is definitely worth a try as the results make for softer, restored hair from roots to ends. I do wish the jar size could be a bit larger to last longer. Otherwise, it makes a great use for alleviating split and brittle ends as well as enhancing your natural curl pattern.
