I wish this worked better for me :( Particularly as I bought the £25 industrial tub :/
So this is a pink conditioner with a gel-cum-cream consistency. Beautiful smell - pepperminty!
I tried using this for 5 mins, 1 min, for the duration of a bath, overnight... Nothing has wowed me. My hair feels no shinier, no softer, fluffier, and no better than if I used a low end high street conditioner... I can't explain it when so many of you lovely people have enjoyed it! Boo and/or hiss!
I'm plodding through using my vat of conditioner in the hope it's helping the health of my hair, if not the aesthetics (nothing to suggest it's BAD for my hair, so I'm saving my pride and taking the cup half full approach).
Saw a girl who recommends conditioning, shampooing then conditioning again to see if that finally woos me... But I'm not gonna hold my disappointed breath!
Oh my God! Is all I have to say!!!! I thought I had tried really good treatments but nope I was wrong...this is a miracle!! My hair is not damaged only dry at ends due to the use of several hot tools and this left my hair sooooooo soft, shiny and silky it felt like silk. I love it and want to run out and buy the huge jar I saw. Ladies run to get this it's awesome!!!
my HG hair mask! I don't use it daily as its waaaay toooo rich, its more of a SOS treatment. I use it when my hair needs special TLC. Always always take with me on vacations, or any trips, as its so good after long haul flights, when hair suffers from dry airplane air.
I have extra long, blond hair that is damaged by years of highlighting and other hair experiments such as ombre and so on, also I hate swimming caps and never use them in the pool, I never protect my hair from the sun or salty sea water, :) so this stuff makes my hair healthy! my hair is not just "looking healthy" but actually IS healthy:) amazing stuff, but pricy as hell, here in canada its 32+tax at shoppers, I fount it in target for 19,99:))) yippie!
How I use it, wash my hair, apply serious conditioner, put a shower cap on, and keep it for 10-15 mins, then wash it off, and voila - perfect restoration:)))))
+love the smell of it!
my hair was sooo damaged a few years back. I have natural 3b highlighted hair... but like many others, I could not put the flat iron down for the life of me. I used it almost daily from freshman year of high school through senior year of college.
My stylist threatened me with the big chop if I didn't get it together, so she recommended I use this before I think about getting any color for a while. I loveddd it. Beautiful smell and consistency. I just wish it was a bigger bottle since I require a lot of conditioner.
Unfortunately, I was a broke college kid when I had this, so I never bought it again. If you can afford this, try it. You will be happy
And I belong to the same group. In Canada this product is around $32 for the small 5oz. tube. I had heard great reviews so I thought I would give it a try. It performed no better than a regular conditioner I was using. I have found that regular treatments of coconut oil do a better job! It didn't remove tangles, make my hair softer, etc. My tube smelled like minty fruit. The smell didn't change, angels didn't fly down from the heavens nor did I have silky smooth curls. My hair in thin, curly and middle-aged. Maybe it works better on thicker hair but it did not give me any slip or justification for paying the steep price!
I belong to the few that did not like this product. I really wanted to love this especially after spending $25 plus tax on this but my hair does not like this conditioner at all. I have fine frizzy hair with dry ends. I colour my hair, blow dry and flat iron. I'm already more than halfway through the 150 ml container and my hair still did not take a liking to it. If I'm spending that much already, I'd rather suck it up and add more money and purchase the Shu conditioners instead (which I've been using for years now and have broken piggie banks) :)
a little bit about my hair first: My brunette hair with some highlights is in normal condition as I dont use a lot of heath and cut it every 6 weeks.
When this conditioner/mask arrived at my home the first thing i did was smell it. And wow.. i did NOT like the smell. sooo minthy!! i didn't smell any of the strawberry they promised.
When applying this after shampooing my hair i was surprised how thick and cream it was. I applied this to the medium and end sections of my hair and was even moooore surprised about how silky creamy thick and wonderful it felt massasing into my hair. It is very thick though so I was a bit afraid it would may be weighing down my hair which gets weight down very quickly.
I left this in for 5 minutes and as I wished.....the minty smell dissapeared!!! :-) and it turned into a lovely strawberry smell.
It was very easy to rinse out and my hair felt very good under the shower.
After blowdrying my hair after applying a tiny bit of heath protect my hair felt SO smooth and SO lush!!!! And I was so glad it didn't weigh down my hair! I'm going to use this once a week as a hair mask and might leave it in a bit longer.
LOVE THIS :)
a TINY thing i thought I should mention.... when having the mask in my hair my hair touched my shoulder blades and it kinda tingled on my skin. It wasn't a very nice feeling. I got sensitive skin and it became a bit itchy in the shower so you might wanna put your hair up in a clip while leaving this in. After showering the itchy feeling was gone.
This is one of the best three conditioners I've tried (Davines Nou Nou and K-Pak Intense Hydrator are the other two). After a couple of days my hair becomes a bit limp, but I don't mind; my soft shiny hair makes up for it. You don't need to keep it on longer than three minutes to get the effects. I detest the packaging, though; it tips over in my shower caddy. But I will buy it no matter what they put it in.
Hate to give a bad review but perhaps my hair just doesn't take this stuff. My hair is very damaged... I used as directed and my hair was nice and soft when I rinsed, and while wet, but once dried it was dull, not soft, or shiny, just nothing special.
If you buy at London Drugs in Canada you can return it if it doesn't work for you. Maybe my hair is just too damaged?
While this is an expensive product (I bought the 25.36 oz jar for approx. $30) it is worth every penny. It smells nice, is very thick and creamy, lasts a long while because a little goes a long way and as it is named, it SERIOUSly conditions ones hair. I love love love love it. So very good. I use it like a mask after washing my hair, and I leave it on for 15 minutes then rinse it out with ice cold water. The result is super soft, smooth, tangle free hair. I would definitely recommend this product and I will purchase again.
