Product Review: Silk Dreams Razzberry Coconut Affair (The Deep Conditioner Files #10)

Price:  $12 for 8 oz. OR $18 for 16 oz.

Ingredients:   Water, Coconut Milk, Stearalkonium Chloride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Rice Bran Oil, Agave Nectar, Cetyl Alcohol, Peach Kernel Oil, Germall Plus, Raspberry Powder, Green Tea Extract, Fragrance

Promise:  Luscious and ultra creamy Razzberry Coconut Affair conditions, moisturizes, and smooths medium to thick hair; not recommended for fine hair.

Scent:  Conditioner.  I expected it to smell like raspberries because it has real raspberry powder, but it didn’t smell like much of anything at all.

Consistency:  Super thick and creamy

Results:   I really wanted to love this product because I love the Vanilla Silk Deep Conditioner and I love the company.  Silk Dreams makes reasonably priced, quality products (despite the name similarity, there is no relation).   This worked better for my hair than the Chocolate Bliss, but it wasn't spectacular.  I tried this twice before giving it away to my sister.  The first time, I inadvertently let it sit on my hair for over 24 hours.  It melted into my hair eventually and my hair felt ok and somewhat moisturized.  The second time, I did an overnight deep conditioning pre-shampoo.  My hair was moisturized this time as well, but still not like with the Vanilla Silk.  I think this was just too thick for my low porosity, fine-medium strands.   In Silk Dreams’ defense, the website and the jar does warn that this is not for fine strands, and I should have listened.  Lesson learned.  From now on, I need to focus on conditioners that are geared toward my finer strands, instead of the medium ones.  

If you like the Chocolate Bliss, you may like this because it is similar in consistency and the effect it had on my hair.  The product junkie in me isn't done trying out this line.  I have one Silk Dreams deep conditioner left in my stash that I am using now -- the Avocado Pudding (review coming soon).  Once I use up more of my product stash, I also want to try the Destination Hydration, Shea What Conditioner, Mocha Silk Infusion, Wheat Germ Butter Conditioner and the Almond Buttercream.

Love it, Like it or Leave It:  Leave It
