Qhemet Biologics Amla and Olive Heavy Cream Review

Natural-haired women with 3b/3c/4a/4b/4c hair have all been raving about this product on other sites, so after checking out the mostly all-natural ingredients, I finally decided to try some myself to see what the fuss was about.

Qhemet Biologics Amla and Olive Heavy Cream   2oz. $5.50; 8oz $16.50

Ingredients: Castor Oil, Olive Oil, Distilled Water, Organic Amla, Organic Brahmi, Organic Aloe, Methylsulfonylmethane, Vegetable Glycerin, Conditioning Emulsifier (Sorbitan and Cetearyl), Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexglycerin (a paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservative), Essential oil blend

I like the fact that I can identify most of the ingredients and that it doesn’t contain parabens or formaldehyde. The consistency of this product is thick, it’ NOT a cream , it’s really a butter. (It reminds me of butter after it’s been whipped actually. ) The first thing I noticed is that it’s rather oily, and a little goes a long way. I purchased the 8oz. container a few months ago and I still haven’t finished it. I’ve already experienced the benefits of using castor oil, aloe and sometimes olive oil in my hair, and there’s Amla and Brahmi oils in the Vatika Hair Oil I use, so I figured, this product should leave may hair nice and soft.

And it DID.

This is a moisturizing product, NOT  styling product. I tried doing a twist-out with it, and it just didn’t provide enough hold. BUT my hair was soft, moisturized, and stayed that way for week! I now use this on a regular basis whenever I’m wearing protective styles, (like two-strand twists, buns, flat-twists, etc.) as a topical hair dressing after I’ve styled my hair with other products, and for my favorite use…Puffs. Ever notice how after your hair is up in a puff for a while it can get really dry? Not with this stuff, with AOHC my puffs stay nice and soft! IT’s also great for sealing your ends, especially with twists and braids. I feel this product works best when applied to damp hair, sealing in the moisture.

RATING*: 4 Smart – Good ingredients, 8oz. a little expensive, really only has one use, but lasts a long time!
