This conditioner is better than the mask. Smells divine (just like the oil) and isn't too heavy, unlike the greasy mask that just seems to sit on top of the hair. This conditioner really penetrates the hair and gives it a healthy bounce. Save your money and buy this instead of the mask...it is truly one this line's best products. I think it works best with the Moroccanoil Clarifying Shampoo or the Hydrating Shampoo. Did I mention that it smells AMAZING?!
