Thanks/No Thanks

Well I decided to start to do products reviews I named thanks/no thanks.  I will review two products in one post, a product I like and I product I don't care for.  So lets get started I will start with the no thanks item first.

Product: Enso Naturals Marshmallow Root Twisting Pudding

What website says: A rich, thick, velvety smooth alcohol free styling pudding suitable for all hair types that does not cause flakes or tack. Marshmallow Root Twisting Pudding was formulated with the needs of tired, thirsty, frizzy curls in mind. Our Twisting Pudding is fortified with Marshmallow Root which conditions your coils leaving your hair soft and nourished from root to tip. Marshmallow Root Twisting Pudding is also loaded with curl loving ingredients to help enhance your natural curl pattern while offering brilliant sheen, bouncy curls and hold.

Ingredients: Distilled Water, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Glycerin, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Nut Oil, Silk Amino Acids, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow Root) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Propylene Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (paraben free fragrance), Fragrance

Price: 8 oz $11.50 @ Enso Naturals

My opinion:  The Twisting pudding does not cause flakes but it smells like dawn dish detergent.  The texture is more like a gel and is very thin.  I used it for flat twist all over my whole head and the smell alone was overwhelming.  Not to mention my hair itched like crazy, I'm not sure what ingredient I had a reaction to but I will no longer be using this product and have 50% of the it left and anyone can have it if they would like. 
My Thank You
