Joico Structure Animate Styling Créme had a 3 for 2 on these. Since I'm always on the lookout for leave in-conditioners, I got 3.

Link to products site 

It has a really strong smell, like bubblegum. Seriously like that awful artificial bubblegum of the pinkest and cheapest bubblegum you could find.

Luckily it disappears as soon as hair dries. Strangely hubby actually liked the smell?

It has a surprising amount of hold. Actually too much hold for my taste!
Some parts of my hair seemed to "freeze"in shape as it dried.

Water, VP/DMPA acrylates copolymer, cyclopentasiloxane, polyquanternium-37, cyclotetrasiloxane, cetearyl alcohol, propylene glycol dicarprylate/dicaprate, styrene/butadiene copolymer, phenoxyethanol, dimetheconol, polysorbate-60, PPG-1 trideceth-6, crambe abyssinica seed oil, propylene glycol dibenzoate, isopropyl palmiate, argania spinosa kernel oil, citric acid, butylene glycol, helianthus anuus seed extract, panthenol, linalool, hexyl cinamyl, fragrance.

COSDNA says it has no ingredients marked red for safety, but it does have quite a few quite high i yellow. Hmm. Also a few that scores high on acne and irritant.

I haven't ever heard of Crambe Abyssinica, but Google informs me it "is a is an oilseed crop, native to the Mediterranean area. According to the Alternative Field Crops Manual, it is used as an industrial lubricant, a corrosion inhibitor, and as an ingredient in the manufacture of synthetic rubber. It can also be used in surfactants and slip and coating agents"

Cute little flower though.

Other than that it contains argan (Seems like all products does these days, doesn't it?) and sunflower oil. 

I'm not really sure what to think of this product. It's the first time I've encountered leave in-conditioner that offered me too much hold! And the scent is just really odd...
