I have tight thick curls so doesn't work very well on it's own but mix it with the Acai Berry and I get great curls that last around 3 days.

I initially bought this product in the small size and thought little of it due to lack of hold, so it went to the back of the cupboard. HOWEVER on reading a review on the trepadora website with a response from Trepadora saying 'try using more product' I gave it another shot. And oh my am I happy.
I have a mix of 3a/b/c highlighted bra strap length curl, high porosity and use about 5 pumps of papaya slip over a leave in on soaking wet hair then diffuse dry. Sometimes I use more and it leaves me with near frizz free curls for days (I pineapple at night). It provides more shine (but a bit less hold) than my usual gel, it leaves no crunch over a leave in. I have had loads of compliments on my hair since using it, it's been particularly good during cold weather. I get lovely defined tumbling curls with this product!
I have just run out of the little bottle I purchased and will be buying a large one today!

To set my curls so that I don't have to fuss about them at all this is a good finisher for my hair which has mixed curls. They actually shine for the first time ever so I'm a Trepadora convert.

I love this product. I wasn't sure which of the Trepadora products to get - my hair dresser had given me the Acai Berry which I liked but I wanted to see what else was out there in the range. This is now my favourite. The Acai Berry is thicker and definitely gives great definition, but this one is lighter but strong in holding the definition and I think my curls look better and they last for the next few days well too. I use 2 pumps on the day I wash it - applying to wet hair - then either natural dry or with a diffuser. Then the following day or 2, I wet my hair a little, then just use 1 pump to revive it (the bottle lasts for ages and ages). It's light, so doesn't weigh the hair down - or make it sticky. All their products leave your hair soft when you scrunch the hair and give lasting definition in a way that I've not found with other products.....but at the moment this is my favourite.

I have fairly fine fair, a mix of mostly 3a with a bit of 2c and a bit of 3b, This gel world really well, i just smooth it over the top and bottom of my hair and scrunch it into the ends, it doest leave my hair feeling dry, it deal dry into a cast or as other may call it drying 'crunchy', just a couple of drops of a light oil on our hand and gently but firmly scrunch the cast and it comes off leaving your hair perfectly defined and soft

Love this product. My hair is wavy, course and dry and this product gives me nice frizz free waves. This was my second purchase

Wanna give this serum type product 5 stars but it's so expensive and I found myself using more than a dime sized blob every day because my hair would suck up all its goodness. Maybe I was doing wrong as after some days I would dry out my hair but to be fair I was using it with Ecogel at the time which is the most drying gel I've ever used. I feel like I have to order again and try it out because this product made my hair feel like silk and I miss that feeling (the bottle finished too soon). At the same time, it's sooooo expensive. Dilemmas, dilemmas! But anyway I recommend a try as it gives hair luxurious feel. I have a medium length afro by the way.

Although the smell is absolutely amazing and my hair still looks great day 7 I find it makes my curls crunchy and straw like... not very like to touch as I have a bad habit of forever putting my hands in my hair!
although my hair looks great it doesn't feel great... don't think I'd buy again
Thank you very much for your review. Fantastic to hear you get 7 day curls with our range but it also sounds like you are using way too much of the product. We recommend you use half the amount and also please do try using our Avocado Kokum Curl Defining Smoothie as a leave-in under it to soften the hold.

As someone who has tried every high end natural hair product out there on both sides of the Atlantic, I thought I could no longer be positively surprised by a new product. I was wrong. The Trepadora papaya slip leave-in is just phenomenal and one of the best out there. After trying everything under the sun for my daughter's 3a-3c hair, I developed a very specific routine that gets her compliments all of the time from, classmates, teachers and strangers alike. She has learned to prefer curly hair over straight hair and has to regularly keep people from touching her hair. The papaya slip got her:
-more lasting shine
Than the products I was using!
In addition, I need to use less product to get a perfect medium hold.
I have never gotten this much natural medium to high hold with a natural product.
It was impossible to get Day 3, let alone Day 5 hair, now I get that with the Papaya Slip product !!!!
During exam time, if I finger curl her hair over the weekend, I get 7 Day hair with as many compliments from Day 1 to Day 7. I just have to remind her to keep her own fingers out of her hair.
Thank you Trepadora for this highly effective bottle that gives me the dosage I want and keeps the product intact inside. My daughter can use the bottle on her own after swimming class without wasting the product.
