The Jane Carter Solution Nourish and Shine

The company was nice enough to send this my way–I almost didn’t try it. My hair normally hates butters/rich styling cream, with a vengeance. I was skeptical that this would do anything, other than annoy my hair when worn curly or weigh it down worn straight. I was pleasantly mistaken.

My Experience

This tames fly-aways, keeps ends smooth, makes blow-outs shiny, braid/twist/bantu-knot outs soft, and keeps curly-hair defined.

A little dab of this styling cream will absolutely do. I’m continually astounded by how little of this I have to use for results. My hair EATS product by the handful. A dime sized amount kept my hair in check, soft, touchable, and bouncy. My 3c/4a curly hair had increased sheen and was oh-so-soft.

This performed superbly on my flat ironed hair, giving silicone-shine, taming flyaways, keeping my ends nice and smooth, and all without weighing my hair down.

This styling cream rinses cleanly; but I would suggest washing once or twice weekly, especially if you use this in conjunction with other products

  • I love my Nourish & Shine as well and was very pleased to see that now in Target the price has been reduced to around $13–even more reason for everyone to give it a try!
