Ive been using these products since November 2013, and all I can say is My Hair LOVES BASK! And so do i. This hair balm gives superior hold and softness to my hair. Theres no need to re twist every single night with a twist out style. My hair feels soft, supple and moisturized with no build up. Week long twist outs easy! My mom even got a 3 week old twist out using this balm with the now discountinued condensed custard! Great job BASK!
