Truth: I've been using this moisturizer exclusively for the past week and a half. I've been having a love/hate relationship with this product. First thing, the scent has greatly improved. It has a fruity scent that lingers in the hair after you've applied it. It reminds me of a Herbal Essences Conditioner. Very fruity, fresh and sweet smelling. The consistency is still the same, very watery and thin. As for how it made my hair feel, some days my hair would feel moist and smooth, other days my hair would feel dry and brittle. This new formula has been giving me mixed signals so it's very hard to tell whether or not my hair truly likes it. My hair is very fussy when it comes to moisturizers containing oils. It will either love it or hate it. Once I apply the moisturizer to my hair, it feels hydrated, however, as the day progresses, my hair has a tendency to feel coated and oily, not moisturized. I believe this is due to the Olive and Argan Oil mix. I noticed that when I aggressively shake the bottle before moisturizing, the oils are mixed in evenly and the product worked much more efficiently. I did notice straighter looking hair when using this product. My hair appeared to look straighter and less poofy/frizzy when applied to damp hair, which is a plus for those who air dry. As an added bonus, I noticed a nice sheen to my hair while using this product. Do I love the new formula more than the original? Absolutely not. Would I use it if the old formula was discontinued? Yes I would, although I may look for an alternative. Are you still going to use it? Yes, I plan on finishing the bottle (32oz) in hopes that my hair may have a change of heart :).
