My Hair - Short and shaggy/piecy razored style, longer on the crown and short around along the neck. Straight hair. Hair texture is fine, not heavy.Product and Usage - I really like this styling product for my hairstyle. It's a creamy white paste that is easy to work with. I either scrape out a pea-sized amount with the back of a fingernail then warm and rub it between my fingertips, or just rub my fingertips in the tub for a smaller amount like for detail work. Can be applied to slightly damp hair for some general hold and control. Applied to dry hair, it provides really good texture and touchable hold on my fine hair - I can run it through my hair for general styling (and cowlick control) but I can also use it on the ends for a more piecy look. My hair doesn't turn greasy or limp by the end of the day.Packaging - White tub with colorful graphics, wide and flat. Easy for swiping fingertips across the product surface.Comparisons - Quite similar effectiveness for me as MoroccanOil Texture Clay. Amika Heist is slightly creamier and the price is slightly higher per ounce.Overall - Another go-to product for me. continued >>

I have thick, coarse, dark, Asian hair. I don't think this product does as good of a job as some of the staples out there like Batiste or Psssst. I also think that the white cast that this leaves is difficult to rub out. I also didn't think this product lasted for very long and I felt like I used the can up pretty quickly. It smells great (hence the 2 lippies), but not good enough to justify a repurchase.

This conditioner is just like the matching shampoo- I wish I could rate it 4.5 lippies :) This is the only purple conditioner I've ever used that is a dark midnight blue-violet color instead of a pale lavender, and I think that's why it works so well. It's thick and creamy, and as far as moisturizing goes it's good at smoothing and hydrating a bit but it's nothing to write home about. The scent is just like the shampoo and is a sort of herbal salon scent that reminds me of Aveda products. My hair is left feeling a bit coated, and I tend to have to apply a bit more leave-in after I use this shampoo and conditioner, but the toning results are worth it. I used this duo for two days in a row and my hair looked like I just left the salon- my highlights were a stunning icy blonde. In my opinion, this shampoo and conditioner are tied with Shu Uemura's Color Lustre Cool Blonde shades reviving balm for banishing yellow tones. Awesome products!

I wish I could rate this a 4.5. I bought this shampoo on a whim from Sephora and I'm really pleased with the results. I've tried at least a dozen purple shampoos in my years as a bottle blonde, and this is definitely the best I've used. The pigment is an intense blue-violet, the lather is rich, and it doesn't leave my hair feeling stripped afterwards. I can shampoo twice, let it sit for a few minutes and my hair doesn't feel like straw after rinsing. The scent is a sort of herbal salon smell, somewhat like Aveda. My hair is bra strap length, medium thickness, highlighted (balayage and icy blonde at the ends), and my brassiness by week three after coloring always drives me crazy since I'm a natural brunette. This is tied with Shu Uemura's Color Lustre Cool Blonde shades reviving balm in terms of toning results. My only complaint(s) would be my hair is really fluffy and left feeling a little coated after using this shampoo and conditioner, but the effect on brassiness is worth it.

I like the idea of this product but it didn't perform all that well on my straight, baby-fine, color-treated, thyroid-medication-trashed aging hair. It added a bit of body for the first few hours but as the day went on, it weighed down my hair and got gummy. I think this would work better on thicker, coarser hair.
