I was in dire need of hair help. I have long, fine, highlighted blonde hair that was very dry due to a week of fast & hot blowdrying (trying to get out of the house in a hurry each day) plus damage from wind and the ocean. I trimmed some fried hair off and used a few deep conditioners I had. My hair still looked crappy so I went to Sally's and got the two-part Aphogee protein & conditioning pack I used before and liked. That helped a little. Still, my hair looked and felt dry and pieces were sticking up. Even my beloved Redken Crema Care creme leave-in wasn't solving my problems. Not wanting to run anywhere too far I checked out products at the nearby Walgreens. This was on sale and I looove shiny hair. I thought it was a leave-in, but I was very tired and in a hurry. I also bought Jhirmack Silver (not sure of name & too lazy to go look at it) shampoo which I used first. That really helped and took out the orangeyness (lol) in my hair. I applied a big gob of this stuff and left it in a few minutes (it says 3-5). My hair felt really nice and smooth in the shower. It had been feeling rough and dry in the shower lately even after using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, and deep conditioners. I let my hair mostly air dry. I didn't use a leave-in like I usually do. I used the blowdryer on low and warm (rather than the high and hot I usually do). My hair turned out gorgeous! No pieces sticking out, doesn't look dry or damaged. It looks soft, smooth, and shiny. So happy! I was worried that my hair would be flat. I have a lot of hair but it's fine. Many products weigh down my hair. My hair feels light and looks full. I hope I'll be able to use this often without build up. Will update.
ITA with the first poster - this is much better than the Aussie 3 minute stuff. That's OK but not a HG - does a bit for your hair, not too impressive (I have it and use it once in a while). This transformed my dull, dry hair into soft, silk, NOT weighed-down, healthy-looking hair.
