Wonderful stuff. I have bleached and dyed and bleached and dyed my hair for the past 5 years now. Obviously now I have a better understanding of what I'm doing but I have had more of my fair share of horrifying "my hair is jelly when wet & carpet when dry" moments. So recently I during my transition from dark brown to white (lilac to be precise) I ran out of my HG of hair repair Joico K-pak reconstructor I decided to give this a shot. My hair was in fairly decent condition before using it, a bit dried out and snappy at the ends. After using it about 3-4 times my hair feels much smoother and healthier. Considering the price was very reasonable at about $17 I am quite pleased. Although I would still choose the Joico over this conditioner it was a great buy and would be perfect if you have a bit of dryness and damage resulting from bleaching but not enough to warrant forking out the dough for Joico. PS smells good! continued >>
This is just fab. I bought this after a hairdresser gave me a small bottle after ruining my hair by leaving highlights in for too long. I now buy the 750ml set with the shampoo (£25 for both from amazon / feel unique) and would never go back. My hair is abused daily by dye, heat and general wear and tear and it has never been so shiny and healthy. It may seem expensive but it's worth every penny - a little goes a long way and these last around 2-3 months. INVEST!
I give this product a rating of 5 because it actually does what it claims. Don't get me wrong, it's not a miracle product....I don't know if such a thing exists, but I haven't found it. However, it does seem to heal my hair a bit. It leaves it in a little better of condition than before, so that's a plus! It's $15 for only 200ml, which goes fast, so this is a pretty expensive product. It is also rather runny, which makes the squeeze bottle design less than ideal, but I've been careful to not let any leak out lol! The smell is pretty strong, like a sweet, fruity smell, but I don't mind it. Overall, it leaves my hair looking pretty good and tames frizziness, so this gets 5 stars!
I have thick, straight highlighted hair that is bra strap length with long layers. Because of it's length, and texture, my ends get split frequently, and it gets tangly, especially in the winter.
I bought this along with the corresponding shampoo on the advice of my stylist, who said that it was great, very moisturizing but light on the hair. I find that when I use them together, my hair will feel great on the first day, but after that goes downhill pretty fast. I don't wash my hair very often (about every 4 days) and with this, I was a buildup greaseball at the end of the second day.
What really works for my hair is to use this conditioner after using a "plain" shampoo, usually suave or VO5. I just buy the cheap shampoo in whatever smell I like at the time, in a big bottle and leave it in the shower all the time for when my hair feels extra dirty. It usually gets that way when I use dry shampoo or go for too many days without washing it. The cheap shampoo acts like a clarifier, which I use on my scalp, and then I use the Tigi conditioner on the length, starting at about 2" from my scalp and working my way down.
I've found that this combination gives me great results, does not weight my hair down, keeps ends smooth and length shiny, and my hair even looks pretty good on the 4th day!
