This is by far the best drug store detangler/leave in conditioner I have ever used. I have used this for several years and have probably tried almost every other drug store detangler/leave in conditioner out there because this product is always sold out making me try something else on occasion. This makes my hair smell good (yes I like the coconut smell) detangles it, and makes it much much softer. My hair feels so dry and brittle without this. First I'm going to start out by saying that I have really long, thick, coarse, curly, dry hair that is blow dried and straightend with a flat iron every day. I'm also going to say how I use this product because I don't think alot of people know how. After washing, conditioning using regular conditioner (I use Tressemme) then rinsing my hair after I shower I spray this on my wet hair, and then brush it to evenly distribute the product. Sometimes I use alot sometimes a little, it just depends on how tangled my hair is. then I use my other hair products such as mousse then blow dry my hair and straighten it, style as usual. This product is awsome if you are looking for something to detangle and soften your hair. It does NOT work to fight frizziness! You will also still need to brush your hair sometime during the day...its not going to make your hair so wonderful you no longer need to brush it (I don't know any product that does that..once I find it I will be in heaven and write a review from there). The only gripe I have is the spray bottle is kind of hard to push sometimes but I don't really care as long as I like the product. Give me a great formula and a mediocre spary nozzle any day over a fantastic spray nozzle and horrible product.
I have been struggling with my hair for ages now, i find it really brittle at the ends, if i run my fingers through my hair, i will end up with tiny little bits of snapped off hair in my hands, i have been trying to grow it for months, it wont grow if it keeps on breaking.
I use olive oil on my hair every day, this is one of the best methods to prevent dry hair.
I have tried EVERY product on the shelf, every conditioner imaginable.... i read reviews on this & decided to give it a go, i bought it in ADSDA for £3.00!!
I went home, washed my hair towel dried it, and applied the product through my hair, when I was blowdrying it I could tell the difference, i also used the Aussie heat defence spray. When it came to straightning my hair, the straightners glided over the hair once, thats all it needed.
When my hair was styled, i continued to run my fingers through my hair, to the ends. Low and behold not ONE bit of hair snapped off the ends, I found this too good to be true!! I have used the product about 3 times now, and i can say for sure, it works!! if you have dry brittle hair due to heat styling and dying your hair, this is the product for you, plus its price is amazing!
I only wish I had discovered this a long time ago, then my hair would not have broken off so much.
I hope this review helps!!
couple months ago, i decided to color my hair even though my hair was not so healthy. i ended up with really F***ed up hair. after continuously using joico k-pak reconstructor,hot oil treatment,deep conditioner my hair back back to some what normal stage. but was just lacking 2%. so i decided to try leave in conditioner. originally i went to pick up infusium23 but it wasn't there so i decided to try this one.
its okay.it did moisturized my hair. it was enough to quench my slightly thirsty hair. and its pretty cheap
(under $3.with sale it would be cheaper)
its just a silicon+plant extracts+oil diluted in water but it was enough for me. if you have really hay stack looking hair, this won't do magic for you.
two things i dont like about this is
1)smell. its like coconutish smell but its CRAZY STRONG + ARTIFICAL
you should really smell this before bying it. although fades really quick, its just too strong to the point of disgusting
2)nozzle. its not so amazing. doesn't spray fine mist. be careful when spraying this. too much of any product is not good
I was really excited to try this because after Water, the next four ingredients are good ones (Aloe, Silk Extract, some sort of [white?] ginger root, and Amodimethicone. I know the last one isn't good, but its a silicone that actually works for my hair). Well, I used it for styling my hair the next day and noticed the spray sucked. It didn't spray well & it was hard to push down, but I figured that could be solved with a better spray bottle. I didn't really notice a difference in my hair, except that it smelled like typical Aussie coconut-bubblegum. The next day I tried it as a leave in before I used my other two staple leave ins. Before I applied the other two & after rubbing it through my hair, I noticed that my hair was rough, but I ignored it. After my hair dried, my hair was dried out (like I figured would happen..). I'm super bummed out & I returned it.
I have thick, frizzy, past my shoulders, curly (3a/b) hair for reference.
The spray pump is horrible. The product doesnt come out misty. There's only like 4 huge droplets of this stuff coming out.
All it does is makes your hair soft but not as soft as other leave in conditioners. Other leave in conditioners kinda makes my hair feel clumpy tho, which is kind of what i like. But this makes my hair feel separated. It doesnt really help with frizz.
The smell is okay. Not something I love but it isnt gross. It smells like coconuts. It smells kinda cheap.
This would probably work well as a detangler.
I wouldnt buy this again.
About as effective as a bottle of water. Really nothing to write home about. I have very thick, dry, long, relaxed hair and I couldn't see any difference.
Love this product. I have coarse, very thick, and very curly hair. Wouldn't say it changes the appearance of my hair or makes my hair easier to style, but it makes it feel healthier and very conditioned.
I spray this on after every shower. And, smells great. I would purchase this again and again.
I don't understand all the rave reviews about this stuff. The spray pump doesn't work very well. So you have to spray it a bunch of times all over your head. The smell is ok, but compared to other leave-ins, it doesn't leave your hair smelling as amazing.
The worst part is the way it left my hair feeling. My hair was a bit like straw and hard
To run my fingers through, and it didn't make it easier to detangle at all.
Maybe I need to use less next time, but this stuff left me feeling very unimpressed.
I love the smell of this. Reminds me of being at a beach. Maybe it's like a sun-tan oil I've smelled. Maybe something fruity or like coconut... I love it.
I really only spray this on my ends and the bulk of my hair and avoid application to the roots because... clearly... that would make anyone's hair greasy within a day.
I use it after I get out of the shower - before I 'gently' brush my damp hair and then again at the very tips before heat styling.
I have an amazingly dry scalp and seeing as I have afro textured hair which tends not to hold moisture I really have to provide external moisture for my hair. I've been through 99.9% of the ethnic hair products you can buy at the ethnic beauty supply store and finally gave up as all of them would either work for a day and my scalp would start itching again or they would cause product buildup in my hair and cause flakes. Out of itchy desperation one day I picked up a bottle of this leave in conditioner in a local drug store after remembering reviews from other ethnic women about how good Aussie products were. I sprayed it on my scalp and hair and days later the amazing smell, no itch, no flakiness and conditioned feeling of my hair is still present. It's water based so use it before blow drying/flat ironing or your newly straight hiar will revert right back to that beautiful frizz head. It's so light it doesn;t weight down the hair and you can also use it just to 'freshen' if you had dreadlocks, weave or braids.
I YR UPDATE: This product does not work as well on my no natural (unporcessed hair). In fact it starts flaking after it dries. Stopped using it.
