This is going to be a short one because it’s been a while since I used this product and a while since I’ve done a product review. Shame on me! Forgive me blog, it’s been 4 months since my last review. Bad blogger! Anyway to the Creme Of Nature tub we go!
Creme Of Nature is a well known brand within the natural hair community. It’s definitely up there. The orange packaging is a standout on the shelves, if you’re lucky enough to be in an area that sells hair products for your hair type. Overall, I liked it. That’s a good start, innit? I think the Creme Of Nature Coconut Milk Curl Repair Leave-In is worthy of a try for us coilies and curlies.
It smells delicious. The kind of good that makes you wish you could eat this sweet treat. Like, it smells so good. And it’s much thicker than you’d expect, I think it’s the thickest leave-in cream I’ve ever used. More of a butterish kind of feel.
As with almost every product that goes into my hair, this was only ever used when my hair was damp. I say damp but spritzed may be more accurate. For my type 4 hair, it’s hard to say if it did it’s job in reducing frizz but for my kids who have a more defined curl, I would say that the frizz was indeed reduced. For all of us (type 3 and type 4) it left our hair feeling well moisturised.
There are products that I’ve used that make your hair feel great for a few minutes until it’s dried or maybe a few hours but by day 2 you’re definitely needing to lotion your hair up again. I would say this gives good enough moisture to last a couple of days. That’s good on two fronts – less work in the hair care department but also less manipulation. Remember manipulation and potential breakage doesn’t just occur when you style, wash or detangle. It happens every time your hands are in your hair for any reason, even when moisturising.
It hits all the right notes when it comes to the ingredients that are not in it – no sulphates, mineral oil or petrolatum. All the things that damage your beautifully curated tresses. And the whole ingredients list is pretty good – Shea Butter is the third ingredient after water and glycerin, however, the first coconutty ingredient is the 15th ingredient after a few things I don’t even know what they are.
You’d hope that Coconut Milk would come higher as the hero ingredient of the range because it’s great for dry hair but possibly it didn’t work for this formulation to have more of it in there and it may have made it less thick. Who knows? I’m not a chemist, even though I did pretend to be one for my A Levels (epic fail). One of the most, if not the most important issues for maintaining great hair is to keep the dry demons at bay and whatever they put in, in whatever order they put it in, it seems to work.
Like I said, I’m keeping this short. I liked it. I would recommend. Although, it didn’t quite hit the spot well enough to get into my Holy Grail list, this one is keeper.
Let’s keep growing together!

Have you tried this? Do I get sucked in too much by products that smell good?
