SWB Ingredients Review: Eden BodyWorks


downloadThis deep conditioner is thick enough to coat your hair but light enough to detangle your hair after it’s applied. Easy to rinse out and effective with or without a hooded dryer. However, use a hooded dryer during all of your deep conditioning. The only way to truly penetrate the hair with a deep condition is with direct heat for at least 30 minutes.

    I had the pleasure of purchasing two products from Edens Body Works last weekend and it was my 1st time trying them. OMG the peppermint hair milk is amazing! I actually prefer to apply it in sections right before I steam my hair with my Q-redew hair steamer. I’m telling you that combo is a match made in heaven! I like the curl defining creme too. I use it for my twist out and I love that it’s a 16oz container.

    I love your review btw.

    I really love the ingredients for the All Natural Defining Creme, which include avocado oil and jojoba oil these ingredients will help my natural hair journey by strengthening, protecting and moisturizing my hair while preventing breakage and giving my hair shine. I have been really rough on my hair and have experienced some unnecessary breakage that I hope I can repair when I win these products. I know that by using these products I am doing everything I can to ensure that my hair gets as healthy as possible. Since hair that breaks doesn’t retain length, I like knowing that these two ingredients of the avocado oil and jojoba oil will help me to grow longer, stronger healthier, shiny hair.

        Thanks so much, I am beyond grateful. Yay me

    I think the ingredients that will most help me in my natural hair journey are water and any aloe components (aloe vera, aloe leaf juice), which are found in all of the products. I think these two are great ingredients and are extremely moisturizing. I enjoy the oils and all else that’s included to make up these products but those two are most appealing. Water is the most moisturizing and is always needed in a natural’s hair journey – it’s primary and paramount! I’m @trinityizreal on Instagram! Thanks for the chance to win. I’ve tried the shampoo/conditioner/hair milk from the peppermint & tea tree line – I enjoyed my experience and have yet to try any of the other lines!

    I have seen but have NEVER tried any on the line! I know that Esmerelda loves aloe vera and I believe since all the products are natural I am willing to add it to my regimen. I currently wear a twa with an ombré color, so natural products tend to keep my curls in tact!

    OMG!! I am a peppermint oil addict so this review has opened my eyes to a new product line that I must try. After reading the review for all of Eden products I know that water soluble products are a MUST and the mere mention of the different oils will feed my (hair oil)addiction. I love the fact that the curling crème and the deep conditioning treatment have coconut oil/milk, jojoba, sweet almond and castor oil as ingredients. I always wanted to try these different oils but can’t seem to break away from my addiction of peppermint and olive oil. So to get all of this mix in one….I’M SOLD!!
    I know my hair will thrive from the oils mention in the product because I have very dry scalp and my hair just like to stay dry. My hair is a brush fire waiting to happen on top of my head. Since using peppermint, castor, and olive oil I noticed that I don’t have dandruff and my hair is pretty moisturized. So I know the additional oils listed in the Eden products will make my hair flourish. It’s good to see that the majority of these oils are mixed into this product and I don’t have to make my own concoction in the bathroom. I am eager to try this product based on this helpful review. I look forward to future reviews especially on wash and gos *hint**hint* I have yet to perfect and define my curls..
