This is the best kept secret. The "only" thing I don't like about it is the container it comes in because packaging this conditioner in a hard container like this makes it very difficult to travel with. But the product itself is great. I usually leave it in my hair for a good 20 minutes and then wash it out. It works great as a deep conditioner. It also works great if just using it after a shampoo. It really does repair damaged/processed hair and leaves it feeling so nice and silky soft.
I am at the bottom of the container, and I will be buying another on the next shopping trip. I can not do without it. I have very fine hair that I color treat, so my hair was becoming frizzy , dull and unattractive. This product makes me proud of my hair again. To the person that mentioned wanting a travel container.. I just put it into a smaller plastic jar for travel. Or better yet, spoon some into a ziplock bag. You can squeeze it out to use, and when you have used the last of it, turn the bag inside out, put your hand in the bag and rub on your hair.
I have very very thick, curly, and medium coarse hair that I wash fully once per week and use a straightener on every day. The first time I used this product my hair felt SO much softer, smoother, and smelled great for multiple days. It definitely made my split ends less noticeable and my hair felt like I had naturally straight, sleek hair, whereas before it felt like coarse curly hair that had been straightened. I could see this being too heavy for thin, already sleek/oily hair, but for dry, damaged hair it's a miracle! It gave me comparable results to much more expensive products and it will last me months.
This product should definitely only be used on extremely dried & fried, especially color-treated hair, basically anyone with noticeably damaged hair, split ends, etc. Also, I'd recommend using only if you have optimal to thick hair, and to probably only use this treatment 1x/wk, because it truly is a miracle worker on my disgustingly over-processed THICK hair, and reading some of the negative reviews, I could only guess these people had great hair to begin with, and/or anything but very thick, coarse hair, like mine. Maybe it was left on too long, or maybe not left in the hair long enough? Before committing to the product, I bought the sample packet, which I noticed is offered everywhere the full size product is sold, so it's truly beneficial & I'd recommend doing that for anyone who's on the fence about whether to purchase or not.
