The Moisture Recovery conditioner is absolutely fantastic and my HG of all times. Unfortunatly, the treatment balm in the same line didn't perform - at all. It's thick & creamy and really look nurturing squeezed out of the tube, I'll give it that! But I find it hard to distribute evenly in wet hair without using to much, and once in hair, it really just sits there, it doesn't penetrate the surface and it's really not moisturizing on its own. I've tried it with heat, whitout heat, leaving it in for various minutes/hours, and the result is just not anything else then I get from a regular conditioner. The *only* excellent result I've had with this product, is when left in a damp bun over night. In the morning, the outcome is similar to when using the MR conditioner. That's not the way it's supposed to bu used though, and if I get the same result form 3 minutes with the MR cond, why buy the treatment at all? It's possible that the formula is just too thick for me, although my hair is really thick as I've got a lot of strands, they're really thin and fine. That could explain why so many have had excellent results with this product and some none at all. I won't repurchase, although I might try the lighter version for fine hair.
