Product Review - Nappturalistic Beauty

Hey kinkies!!  I'm coming to you with another product review.  I had the opportunity to review a few products from the Nappturalistic Beauty line.  My review will be of the Hair Growth Serum Blend, Hydrating Daily Leave In Conditioner, and Moisturizing Hair Milk.  
What's In Nappturalistic Beauty's products?
Hair Growth Serum Blend: Extra virgin olive oil, castor seed oil, avocado oil, select ayurvedic oils, grapeseed oil, emu oil, essential oil blend, and fragrance. 
Hydrating Daily Leave In Conditioner: Purified water, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, BTMS, honey quat, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, emulsifier, fragrance and natural preservative. 
Moisturizing Hair Milk: Purified water, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, shea butter, honey quat, almond butter, aloe butter, avocado butter, mango butter, extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, emulsifier, emu oil, olive butter, macadamia integrifolia seed oil, coconut oil, fragrance, vitamin E, and natural preservative.  

To prepare for the review, I shampooed my hair with a shampoo bar that I used in a previous review.  During my first use, I applied the Hydrating Daily Leave In Conditioner and then the Moisturizing Hair Milk.  Both products are thick, white and creamy and have a grape-like smell.  The Moisturizing Hair Milk helps to seal in the moisture.  The Hair Growth Serum smells like oil and has a somewhat faint smell of the other two products.  Below is a picture of my hair with both the Hydrating Daily Leave In Conditioner and Moisturizing Hair Milk applied.  
I wanted to try bantu knots on my hair.  After I completed the knots, I used the Hair Growth Serum Blend on my scalp.  Each day I also used the products on my knots, until I was ready to do the bantu knot out.  Below is a picture of the knots before and after fully unraveling...          

My hair felt somewhat moisturized upon taking out the knots.  Of note, when I did apply the products, I started at the roots and made my way down to the ends.  I repeated this step for each product used.  I used the Hair Growth Serum Blend daily to massage my scalp.  I used the same product to 'take down' the bantu knots.  As the Hair Growth Serum Blend wasn't used for an extended amount of time, I cannot say whether hair growth  truly resulted from continued use.  I didn't like the style too much, unfortunately; so I won't show all of the pictures.   I didn't like the frizz (my fault for not fully detangling the ends); however, once I tweaked the bantu knot out, I grew to love it.  When I used all of the products together, I could see and feel that my hair was moisturized and manageable.  I also had less frizz.  I was able to make the bantu knot into a pinned up bun as well as an afro.  To smooth the edges of the bun, I applied the Moisturizing Hair Milk and a bit of the oil to my hair and wrapped a scarf around it overnight.  I was pleased with the overall results... you can see my results below.

Overall the products were moisturizing; however, if I had to choose between the Hydrating Daily Leave In Conditioner and the Moisturizing Hair Milk, I would choose the latter.  They have a lot the same ingredients.  For the remaining oil that I have, I am going to use it for a prepoo and scalp massage.

Here's my last few pictures of the styles aforementioned...
