Beautiful hair needs an expert: Ellin LaVar PenetratingBalm

I've been testing out Ellin Lavar Textures' PenetratingBalm and I highly recommend it for dry, coarse and naturally curly hair. My hair falls into the 4b hair type category, so my natural hair is thick and coarse. This is a great moisturizing leave-in conditioner, that helps to detangle and soften hair. After using this, I found my hair to be very manageable and easy to section off for blow-drying.

The texture of the PenetratingBalm is somewhat thick and very creamy, and a little goes a long way. This would also be a good moisturizing styling aid for those of you with dry, naturally curly hair. It's formulated with an oil from the seeds of Brazil's passion-flower fruit called Maracuja. This oil works to nourish the hair, which is very important during this dry winter season, and it works to control frizz and keep curls shiny and defined.

I'm recommending that Tracee Ellis Ross use this to nourish and hydrate her naturally curly hair and I'm recommending this for you as well! Questions? Did anyone see Ellin's reality show "Hair Trauma" on WE TV? If so, what did you think?

To Shalon: With using it as a "leave-in conditioner", my answer is no. But remember, a little goes a long way. Are you thinking about trying it? If so, please let me know your thoughts!

I remember that show with Ellin and her siblings...her apartment was beautiful.

My CVS has several Lavar products 75% off. I snapped up the Nourish Oil for 2.00. I saw this too just today but I wasn't marked down lol. But it sounds great, I'll have to try it.

To "Jamie @ Rural Glamour": You should reconsider going back to get the PenetratingBalm- I think you'll really like it!

Also, as much drama as there was on "Hair Trauma"- there's no denying Ellin's talent- her work is amazing! :)

This is by far the BEST product line I've used with extensions! I've tried them all, to help with correct the dryness and frizz that comes after a month or so of having extensions. Fantastic product line!!
