Ok, so the last couple of weeks I`ve been using ONLY Frederic F products. I can`t believe how well they WORK! :-) If you have damaged hair from coloring/perming/heat styling, this will really help you. I bought the Protein RX shampoo and after the very 1st wash my hair was improved like never before! I run back and got the conditioner too. Smells like vanilla, great consistency, you only need a bit so it will last a bit longer ($25), the only thing to watch for that you can add too much protein to your hair, if you use it with the shampoo constantly, and you feel like your hair is dry after it gets dry, next time use a different shampoo or conditioner, and then you can go back to this. What I do, I use ONLY the Protein RX shampoo and alternate between the Protein RX conditioner and the Technician Color Care conditioner... :-)

Amazing HG product. I purchased this from John Lewis on a whim before I went on holiday as my hair is highlighted, fine, dry and very damaged and I wanted something on holiday that would help to keep it smooth and soft when washing it everyday after swimming in chlorine and saltwater. I didnít expect to find a product that would actually work. I swam everyday on holiday and my hair as soon as I put this on wash like silk and my ends were not frazzled and horribly split. I have continued to use this at home and it is absolutely fantastic. I use it every wash and you only need a tiny bit. After washing my hair I do use another product to keep it smooth (Shu Uemura hair oil) but without anything it is still easy to brush and if I let it dry naturally it is very soft and the ends are sealed. I normally have a hair cut when I get home from a holiday but I have now been back a month and have not needed one. This really is a lovely product. I also use the 3 minute repair mask once a week which is also lovely.

Oh my my my, is this yummy!!!! Plenty of this brand is up for swaps but who wants to swap with a sweet and generous newbie like me? Survey says....freakin' no one. So, hey, who cares, I got Sephora to swap with me. I gave them cash and they gave me this unbelievably fantastic conditioner and they also included some pretty righteous extras too. Wow, smells amazing! I've been looking for a good detangling conditioner for my curly , frizzy hair and this is incredible and did I mention how amazing it smells? Even if you use it the day before yesterday, your hair will still smell fantastic and you'll get little whiffs of the sweetest fragrance and then you'll go ," oh yeah, it's my hair". Even if it made my hair nappy, I think I'd still get this as it's the best smelling hair product ever and I was a shampoo girl and hairdresser for years so I've smelled tons of conditioners. Insanely wonderful product. It makes my hair shiny and silky . I even used it as lotion today. Now I know they make one.

This conditioner is amazing. My hair is so over processed (bleach, hair dye) and over heat styled everyday. This made my hair silky soft, helped with frizz, and I noticed less hair breakage/fallout in the shower. I love the whole protein rx line.. its wonderful and has a wonderful warm vanilla scent! Way better than the Aveda damage remedy I was using in scent and performance. In fact its better than anything I've ever tried, I just absolutely fell in love with it from the first time I used it. I will definitely buy this conditioner over and over until my hair is back to health (which maybe then I'll have to look for other Fekkai products) or unless they change the formula--I hope they never do!

I have straightened, dyed, and highlighted waist length hair. It has been sadly abused due to almost daily backcombing and styling with curling and flat irons for the past two or three years. I bought this with the RX shampoo and after three uses my hair was more silky and manageable. However, after two months of use, I still have breakage and split ends. Combined with the price that's one lippie off in my opinion. Also halfway through it gets kind of hard to sqeeze the product out of the bottle. I'll probably buy it again though, at least until I can find something better. Bottom line, though this works great, it's not a miracle in a bottle. At least not for someone with hair as damaged as mine.

I like this SO much better than the shampoo. This smells awesome (like vanilla cake) and works very well to make the hair feel VERY smooth and look shiny. I find that I can't use it very often b/c my hair is protein sensitive and this conditioner has a ton of different proteins in it. If I use it too much, my hair will get dry, but for someone with very damaged hair, I think this would work very well. However, I think that you can get better professional salon products that work just as well for a lot less $$$ b/c you're basically paying for the Fekkai name on the bottle.

Gosh, it seems like I have the best luck with Frederic Fekkai products. Of course they have to be the most expensive - blah! The only line I didn't care for at all was the Shea Butter. This product along with the Anti-Breakage Treatment mask and the Glossing line has completely transformed the health of my hair. Prior to these products, my hair was dull, flat, dry, and had tons of breakage. The first line I tried was the Glossing and that transformed my hair into shining silk, but I was still having trouble with breakage, so I tried the Protein RX line. Instant love. These are the only protein products that have REALLY helped with breakage. It takes a few uses to completely stop the breakage, however, I use these products sparingly, because I know what a protein overload can do to your hair. My hair tells me when I need to use the Protein RX products, and once I do, the breakage stops. These products have allowed me to continue to grow my hair out. Without them, I'd cry!

This is a great product! I used just as directed, applied onto my shampooed hair and combed it through. I could already notice a difference! My split ends seemed to have mended together and overall my hair feels great! Smells like vanilla oatmeal. It was my HG til I discovered Joico Kpak and Aphogee. For about 20$ it's rather pricey, and there are definitely alternatives, so i'm taking one lippie off for that.

this product is just mediocre to me.
since I started using it (it's been about 2 months.)
teamed with the shampoo and hair mask, my hair hasn't been falling out any less that i've noticed.
it smells very nice and has pretty good detangling power.
just not worth the price, in my opinion.
I'm going to try redken's extreme anti-snap line next.

My hair is really damaged from bleaching and daily heat styling but this is the only conditioner that has ever truely started to repair it. I alternate it with L'Oc and my hair is looking so much better. It really has helped my split ends.

This is the one frederic Fekkai product that I like. It makes my hair incredibly shiny, soft and silky. It totally is worth every penny! My ends feel great as well. No split ends either! The only downside to this is the smell...blech! Its this gross plastic-y weird smell...but then again, I hated the way all the other FF products that I have tried. But despite the smell, I love this product!

The protein rx shampoo & conditioner cleared up my split ends within 10 days, it worked so well. After repeatedly using a flat iron on my hair, I really needed this and it really did wonders for my dull hair. I'm in love with the whole protein line now - I highly recommend this to anyone with any time of damage-related hair ailment.

love the product, really love the smell, I've bought hundreds of different shampoo and conditioner in my life, this rx line is the best smelling

This Protein RX line is the best ever. I use this conditionrer in conjunction with the matching shampoo and the spray leave in treatment. My long damaged hair is transformed into shining silk and it has a lot more body. Smells great too!

I like this conditioner. I used it with the Protein Rx Reparative Shampoo and with the Technician Shampoo for Color treated hair and I have to say that it worked well/better with the Technician Shampoo. So basically, I'm thinking the Technician Conditioner (which I haven't bought yet) would be more suited with my hair. I won't be buying this conditioner again though but it is a decent conditioner. The smell to me is strong + warm which I do like.

My HG conditioner! I bought the shampoo, conditioner, and protein mask kit from Bath and Body Works and it was the best beauty purchase I ever made. The Protein Rx shampoo and conditioner make my hair so soft and full. I just have to use a little volumizing mousse and velcro rollers, and afterwards my hair has tons of volume up top, and looks smooth, glossy, and thicker (yay!). The scent is pretty, very vanilla-y, but doesn't really linger in my hair. I also only need to use a little bit of each product, so it's worth the price. I can see how this could cause build up, but my Sunday night rinse with a clarifying shampoo takes care of that. When I use these two products I LOVE my hair.

I am very happy with both the shampoo and conditioner. I typically use Technician, but these are now in my "top 3" rotation. Smells nice, and leaves my dry/processed hair moisturized and soft.

I spent a good three weeks being sick and much of my time in bed which unfortunately left me with the nastiest knotted hair since I was not regularly taking care of my hair ...... I purchased the FF RX Reparative Mask which truly saved my hair and I was so impressed that I decided to try out the matching shampoo and conditioner and glad that I did. While my regular line is Ted Gibson, I like to keep a spare set of another brand to mix and match atleast once a month and the Fekkai is my new choice as my backup. The shampoo and conditer left my hair very healthy, shiney and great looking ....... I was very impressed as most shampoos and conditioners leave my blonde highlighted and wavy/curly hair dry, but the Protein RX Reparative was a hit for me ..... I was also surprised that only a small amount was needed for my long, thick hair and I also really like the scent.

As a high protein conditioner, I like this better than the K-Pak Daily conditioner. Used in conjunction with Terax Collagene shampoo, FF Protein Rx leaves my hair silky and reduces frizz. Not for everyday use and it's full of silicones, if that's a problem for you. Note that it has a strong vanilla custard scent (similar to Victoria's Secret Amber Romance). I like strong scented products, but it might not be for everyone. As conditioners go, I wouldn't rate it as high as as Terax Crema, but it's still a winner in my books.

This is a great product for chemically treated, dry and damaged hair, but NOT naturally dry (go for the Shea Butter Moisturizing conditioner) as I was persuaded by the SA to give this a go even though my hair is not in bad condition, I just have some year old colour faded at the ends. This conditioner was too heavy for my hair. It made it lank and lifeless, which just proves that these products really are geared towards specific hair conditions so make sure you choose appropriately.
I do love this range though. I'm going to try and take this back and swap for my usual.
