The Truth: I'm pretty impressed with this conditioner to be honest. For the price, you get a whole-lot of conditioner which is always a plus in my books along with great results. In the photo above, I added a Aussie Moist pump to the bottle just for convenience..lol. I wish it came with one though. Anyways, it has a pleasant scent....very refreshing yet sweet. It sort of reminds me of candy. The texture is great. It glides very easily onto the hair. It's not too thick not too thin with a light orange tint. The ingredients aren't top notch but it does condition and soften the hair. Plus, I'm not sure of how the hair can absorb vitamins (marketing?). I think it's best to ingest them rather than putting them on the hair.
I've tried this product on dry hair first and on damp hair after shampooing. I prefer using it on freshly shampoo'd hair. I would normally leave this deep conditioner on for 20-30mins with heat. When rinsing it out, I felt loads of slip and instant hydration, which is very good while stretching your relaxer. The slip lasts until you air dry so it's very easy to comb & detangle your hair. Once my hair was air drying, it felt soft, very smooth, manageable, slightly stronger and conditioned! Even though there's protein in this conditioner i.e. Hydrolyzed Soybean Protein, Soybean Protein, etc., you don't feel the stiffness or hard hair feeling. It's truly more on the moisturizing side than on the protein side.
Tips: Use once a week as a deep conditioner with heat for 20-30mins after shampooing to increase moisture level and strength.
