I actually had this done as a treatment at the salon and it was lovely. My hair was very soft and shiny - no huge transformations with this one, but it has a nice smell and it's a good treat for your hair every now and then. I imagine a bottle would last a long time.
i'm surprised at how many people don't like this product. i really like it. i think the trick is to use it sparingly. once-twice a week is enough! at my salon we recommend once every 2 weeks. another thing is use it AFTER you use a clarifying shampoo. you want to get all of the excess product buildup out of your hair so this product can really sink in. leave it on for at least 5 mins. i leave mine on for 20 with a shower cap over it and it makes my ends feel like i just got an awesome trim. the only thing i don't like is the smell and the bottle. i'm not really partial to the herbal/organic/natural smells and the toothpaste like bottle/tube makes it hard to get the product out.
This product makes my hair soft and silkier after using it. During the day though, it dries up a tiny bit--however, that also may be b/c I spray a heat-tamer spray on my hair and redo some of my curls in the morning. It's still pretty soft though--for some reason, it makes the hair on the top of my head really soft and silky, much more so that the rest. I think this product would be amazing for somebody with straight or slightly wavy hair, and just pretty good for the curly girlies. Idk about fine-haired-it might make it a little oily.
I got this as a sample from the Aveda store. I like it and it works fairly well, but it's so overpriced. I have cheaper conditioners that work just as well as this. I don't see a significant difference with my hair when I use this. I use this on the tips of my hair just to strengthen them. It's fine, but I will definitely not purchase.
For anyone with brittle, dry hair, this is something to try. I have fine hair, but every now and then this masque helps to quench any dryness that it has in it. It's a thick and rich paste almost that can be left on over night if need be and helps to soften and shine hair. I love the aroma and the results, but I can't use it too often seeing as how rich it is.
I was looking for a deep moisturizing mask for my locks and I think I found it. I sometimes use this all on its own though out my hair (when my hair really needs it), but I mostly use it along with a conditioner and use this just at the ends. The smell is amazing. The website describes the scent as being "palmarosa, ylang ylang and rose geranium, plus a hint of vanilla." I enjoy natural/organic scented body products and the scent to some might not be as liked.
Non-descript. Funny smell. Comparable to drug store hair products. Non-transformative. Small amount for price.
Take it from me. I spare no expense on my hair but this product just isn't worth it. Biolage, Redken, and Semi di Lino make FAR better hair masques and I feel justified in spending $$ on them!!
I really love this masque. I massage it into my hair for about three minutes and when I rinse it out my hair feels so amazing. I even love the smell because it smells like I just got back from the salon.
When I first used this, I loved it.I had a weave and I put this on my roots. I put A LOT on my roots. It worked well. It lasted for 2 days, the softness. The more and more I used this product (every 3 days), the less and less effective it became
When I took my hair down, I used it all over my hair. it was just... okay. It is absolutely not worth the price. I am never buying this again. I only bought it because my mom gave me some money and I really wanted to like this product because the FIRST time I used it, I was in amazement, but... yah.
This was a Paula's pick, so I tried it with the shampoo and conditioner. I actually prefer the Aussie 3-minute miracle instead...and it's only 5 bucks instead of 40! Won't be buying again.
