I have had Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine for a while. Was excited to get it because I had read some great reviews. But after using it once I couldn't figure out how to use it.

I guess the Nourish and Shine is like a paste. It's oily but not extremely. It's probably more of the consistency of unblended Shea butter. Scooping a bit out with your finger is easy. But it is heavy, thick and sort of waxy. Unfortunately with my major shrinkage and my bushy ends, this makes the product hard to apply evenly. And I think trying to smooth it down my strands increases the likelihood of breakage. So I ended up using too much to prevent from having to apply too much pressure to put it on.

Although its hard to apply, I have finally gotten this product to work for me. After I do my final condition rinse and baggy under my heat cap for 15 minutes, I scoop some into my palm and emulsify it and then apply it to the other sections of my hair. Then I take the larger section of my hair and separate it and apply smaller dabs to each section. Then I try to smooth it in as much as possible. This keeps my hair hydrated for at least 3 days when I wear my hair loose and for a week when I wear my hair in coils.

I think this product works well for low porosity hair. I think it would also work better for my hair if I stretched it or blow dried it. But since I do neither, this product is not the best for me. I need something that is creamier and easier to apply.

This product is also very pricey. I think with the right hair texture it could be economical because you really should only need to use a little bit of it.

Overall I like the product but not for my 4b, high shrinkage hair. I will not repurchase this product. I will look for a creamier, butter blend to replace this.
