Ingredients: aqua (water), C12-15 alkyl benzoate, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, petrolatum, cetearyl alcohol, polysorbate 60, PEG-150 stearate, cetyl alcohol, ceteareth-20, PEG-20 hydrogenated lanolin, PEG-40 stearate, behentrimonium, methosulfate, cetearyl alcohol, cyclomethicone, isopropyl palmitate, lactic acid, glycerin, propylene glycol, dimethicone, glyceryl stearate, ammonium hydroxide, persea americana (avocado) oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed keratin, green tea (camellia sinensis) extract, tocopheryl acetate, PPG-3 benzyl ether myristate, hydroxyethylcellulose, magnesium aluminum, silicate, DMDM dydantoin, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, disodium EDTA, BHT, Parfum (fragrance), Benzyl benzoate, geraniol, lilal, d-Limonene.
Fragrance: The Intense moisture crème has a very strong fruity fragrance.
Texture and color: It comes as a very thick white cream.
Packaging: The packaging comes in a jar which makes it very easy to get all of it out. The package design is clean and aligns with ORS products.
Uses: I used this as a moisturizer. However, I did not like the results. It tends to build up on my hair even if I use a small amount on my hair. The moisture doesn’t last and it doesn’t absorb in my hair.
My take: I do not care for this moisturizer AT ALL. It did react well with my hair. I tend to have this problem with ORS moisturizers. I’ve tried ORS Olive Oil Crème, Carrot oil, and Olive Oil Incredibly Rich Moisturizing Hair Lotion and I still had poor results with them. I really like ORS conditioners and their relaxers but their moisturizers are not for me. I bought this because I was looking for a moisturizer to replace my Cantu Shea Butter for Naturals Creamy Hair Lotion. I saw many good reviews about this so when I saw it I picked it up. I ended up giving it away (which is why I don’t have my own pictures). A family friend came to visit and she was saying that her hair was so dry. She asked to borrow a moisturizer and I gave her this one. She was so excited about the results and it kept her hair moisturized. I personally wouldn’t recommend this but it may work for you.
Would I purchase again? Nope!

What’s your experience with this product? Do you use ORS moisturizers?
