I have dense, tight, spiral curls and every line I used left my hair feeling dry and rough (like steel wool or brillo). After the first week of use of Malibu C Hard Water Wellness Kit, my hair feels softer and healthier naturally (less breakage combing out wet and dry) without using any product except Malibu C Leave-In Mist Conditioner. Also, my skin feels less itchy after I shower, since switching to Malibu C. Being black, I find that most products are made for people with normal to oily skin and mine tends to be on the dry side.
