Super Sweetback's Soft and Long Revenge

Could there be such a thing as a deep conditioner that softens and elongates every curly strand of your hair? The Miss Jessies's brand says yes, it is so, with their Super Sweetback Treatment. With a bubblegum/candy scent that will either carry you on a happy cloud to hair heaven or drive you diabetically batty with every whiff, this concoction definitely leaves hair soft and supple. I chose to apply the conditioner before entering the shower to let the steam penetrate my hair for 15 minutes.

I spent a fair amount of the application time wondering which ingredients led to the odd, slick texture with the consistency of jello-y pudding, but I appreciated the outcome. Once air-dried, my usually spirally coils hung in vibrantly buoyant waves. Shine is not one of the benefits imparted by Super Sweetback, so you will have to figure that one out for yourself with a good finishing product. All said, I am looking forward to guaging the long-term results of use, though learning to tolerate the overly sugary scent will be quite a challenge.

Have you given this conditioning treatment a try? What did you think?

@FunStuffCrafts-it works in the same way as most deep conditioners. I applied it thoroughly to my hair and let the steam from the shower penetrate my hair, soaked with the product, for 15 minutes and then I rinsed. Perhaps next time I will post some pics for the curious. :) I appreciate your taking the time to comment.

@Sarah-the treatment retails for about $48, so it is no cheap investment. Great question!
