I bought this on the recommendation of a friend. I was hoping it would tame my dry ends, which feel like straw by the time I go for a trim. It does an ok job, I think it does help to keep my ends from drying out and splitting, but I'm not sure if it's good enough to warrant the price. I use it now that I have it, but will not run out to replace it if it ever runs out. I think it's been discontinued anyway.
