Product Review: Curls Nurture Cream by Fleurzty

A couple of months ago, I ordered some product. I made a big rant about it on the blog (see here) about the customer service of it all. Eventually I did receive the product. I've been using it off and on for a couple of months and feel like I have enough info to talk about it.
The product is called Curls Nurture Cream. I found it on the website: http://www.textureplayground.com/blog/?page_id=3079
I will type what it says on the jar as far as a description goes.
Provides moisture, shine, definition and softness to your curly styles whether achieved naturally or by setting the hair. CNC is a non-greasy moisturizer. 

Uses: Apply this cream after your leave-in conditioner to style. Will keep your hair moisturized for long lasting styles.

My thoughts: Okay, so the stuff works. It's rather nice actually. I can apply this to DRY hair and it absorbs this stuff. I have never had a moisturizer do that before. If my hair was not wet, it would just sit there. and i would look like Don King with grey hair in a cone shape with product on it. I was amazed by that. 
However after a couple of hours, my hair felt sort of dry again. Not the crispily crackly dry that I sometimes wake up with if I don't moisturize before bed, but fairly dry. That is something to watch out for.
Oh lord the scent. The scent is incredibly off-putting. You know that pink medicine you had to take as a child for an ear infection? The one your parents tried to convince you was bubble gum but you know good and well you never had a piece of Bubbalicious that tasted like that nonsense? That is what this stuff smells like. Luckily, the scent does not stay in your hair. While putting it in my hair I have flashbacks and the next thing you know I am on the floor screaming "I DON'T WANNA TAKE THE MEDICINE!!!" 
It's a decent product. The whole dryness after a couple hours and the scent is off-putting, but it is not bad enough that I wouldn't use the product again.
