This product is lovely for protecting the scalp. I use it once a week and leave it in for half an hour before washing my hair. It smoothes the roots and help manage flyaways (although it cannot prevent them one-hundred percent). I love the smell and the shape of the applicator. The applicator tip allows you to deposit the treatment evenly on the roots. I would only give this treatment four out of five stars because it does not do anything otherworldly, but it still is a good product.
