Excellent. LOVE it and I am very loyal to this after experimenting for years and years with high end, natural/vegan etc. shampoos and conditioners.
I'm sold! It makes my damaged, colour treated hair a lot more manageable and healthier looking.
I used this about 1x per week or every other week in conjunction with the shampoo and conditioner by Garnier Fructis.

My mother, who colors her hair regularly, recommended this to me when I ran out of my regular condition before I went back to school. I was doubtful about it, as it is marketed as a conditioner that strengthens colored hair while keeping its color. I don't dye my hair, and it didn't seem dry. But for $3, I was willing to give it a shot.
I followed the instructions, after wrestling with the tub it came in, and worked a glob of the product into my wet hair and left it there from three minutes before showering it out. When i first got out of the shower, I noticed my hair was a bit sticky, and it didn't go away as my hair dried (I don't blow dry). So I was doubtful and ready to give the tub i bought to my mom...until I wok up the next morning and holy crap! My hair felt and looked great!
It was smooth and shiny and was just the hair I've been trying to achieve with various styling products and complicated routines. And the results have only gotten better as I've continued to used this (it's been 2 weeks). And I haven't experienced the stickiness again.
Overall: If you have problems with frizz, dry hair, log hair that never seems to get moisturized all the way through or colored hair, I would try this product. It's $3 for a decent sized tube (and a little goes a long way, depending on the length of your hair). BUT the tub it comes in sucks to deal with in the shower. But that's one thing I'm willing to deal with for great hair.
**EDIT 7/16/10** While I still love this, I think I will be ratcheting back it's usuage in my routine, as I think it's been adding too much oil/product to my hair and making it look a little grungy...granted, my hair still feels amazing all the while

I'm disappointed with this product. For some reason it works really well the first try. Until the second try and so on, it tangles my hair and makes it feel like straw. But it does smells nice and gives hair shine.

I've tried so many treatments for my hair in the past but always come back to this one.
I actually use this everytime I wash my hair now (2-3 times weekly). My over processed hair is left feeling managable & smooth, which I haven't really found with other products. It doesn't make it permanently smooth though, just whenever you use it. I don't think any conditioner completely changes your hair as I've believed in the past.
It's affordable to use frequently.

Complete crap. Used this in the shower for about 10 minutes and my hair magically transformed into straw. The only positive I have to say about this masque is that it smells great, like all other Garnier products.

Cheap (less than $4) and decent value for the price. This thick conditioning "masque" is not nearly as good as Kerastse, but if you have dry or damaged hair and are short on cash it's a good stop-gap measure.
I use this as an alternative to my beloved (and uber-expensive) Kerastase Masquintense.
Holistic people: Garnier is NOT a "natural" line and if fact, is chock-full of synthetics so you may now want to purchase this.

My hair is natually curly, and if not conditioned properly, will will become exteremly frizzy and big. Im always on the lookout for new products, so bought this masq the minute it hit the shelves. It smells good and works pretty well (my Aussie deep 3 minute miracle works better and is cheaper; only downfall is that it smells bad). The jar is a pain sometimes because it is hard to open with slippery hands. What I do is unscrew the cap under the running water, much easier that way. I would repurchase this again, but Aussie 3 minute miracle is my main conditioner.

I LOVE THIS! I save it for the use of events, like parties. It was about $5 from Target so I will not let it go to waste. It smells amazing and leaves my hair SO SOFT! I will re-buy forever.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Purchased at Target for just under $5.00. I've used this every other day for about 2 wks now. Surprizingly this jar has lasted me that long. I'd say I'll probably get about 12 "servings" from it. I have dyed hair just below my shoulder blades that I blow dry frequently. I dont have split ends but I was noticing my once super shiny hair is becoming more and more dull looking. This conditioner is about the same thick consistency of any Pantene conditioner I have ever used. It smells nice, and it leaves my hair soft, but its not made any improvements as far as the over all health or appearence of my hair. I'm going to say Yes I would purchase this again, because I dont think it deserves a No for the fact that its made my already soft hair even softer but truth be told, I dont think I would purchase this again. I'd rather spend my money trying to find something else that works better.
UPDATE: I finally used all of this up and went back to my usual Pantene daily conditioner that I've always been happy with. Now, I'm realizing just how soft this mask made my hair and I miss it! I've increased the lippie rating from a 3 to a 4. I guess the saying is true " You dont know what you've got till its gone"!

LOVE this stuff - everything about it EXCEPT the packaging - hard to open the jar when hands all slippery wet in the shower. Other than that:
creamy consistency/texture, nicely conditions my color-treated/permed hair if I use for 3 minutes 1/week. more than that = too heavy.; lite fragrance; cheaply priced; easy to obtain (in lots of stores).
Bottom line: 1/week on my entire head of hair leaves it soft, more manageable curls w/out weighing down for not much $. Will definitely re-purchase.

Nice deep conditioner! At first it made my hair soft and pretty, but then my hair started getting oily with it, so I just used it on the ends. But then, since the packaging sucks, water got mixed into it. So i dont even know what to say about it anymore! I'll probably buy it again, but they really do need better packaging on these things.

This conditioner smells great and it leaves your hair smelling good for a while. Since my hair is frizzy and dry I leave this on way longer than 3 minuets becasue the three minuets does nothing. I didn't notice much of a difference but my hair was a little softer but it wasnt a drastic change. I would buy this again just because it smells so good.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
i always come back to this. in fact, i much prefer it to the regular fortifying conditioner. this doesn't seem to build up on my hair as much. i actually use this almost every other day as my regular conditioner. it smells wonderful, doesn't seem to hurt my hair or leave it feeling too waxy and i can find it anywhere. i will definitely buy this again - oh i might stray - but i know that i will always come back! UPDATE: this doesn't seem to be working as well for me lately. someone said that they changed the formula - does anyone know for certain? it just seems to leave my hair coarse feeling and sort of oily looking but drier... weird

I found this on MUA, and started using and liked the results - I alternate this with Suave's Milk and Honey on my thick but fine hair. My mom came to visit and tried this and looooved it! It works well and quickly. I also like to use it with my Aveda Annatto conditioner.

love this stuff...works great..leaves mty damaged hair soft and shiny..the only gripe i hav with this is the packaging..an absolute pain to open when u've got the shower going and you're hands are slippery and then when you mange to scope some out without dropiing the bottle its impossible to close it again..
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This does the same thing to my hair as regular conditioner, no difference. Not a fan of jar packaging either (it bugs me when water gets in). Will go back to Aussie 3-minute miracle.

Ok. I heat straightn my hair, color it, alot of bleaching done etc. This stuff is a life saver. I wrap my hair up, put a cap on and a towel so the heat will penetrate my hair. wonderful. It smells so delicious and it does wonders on my prossesed hair. I left it in for only 10 mins. Definatly will repurchase.

I generally only buy salon products, but was going through a poor stage and grabbed this at the super market. I have thick long ringlet curly hair, which gets very dry. This works better than any other treatment I have ever bought, even ones designed specifically for my hair. It smells divine, and is super quick to do, and I highly reccomend it to anyone with dry hair.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
i really liked this because my hair is really damaged and over processed ... i used this for about 10 minutes i think and when my hair dried it was really shiney and sooth...but as soon as i went to straighten it the sine dissappeared and i was back to dull hair..i think this is good if you dont heat style your hair...
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
ok first of all i like the smell. it does improve my hair a bit, but i don`t see much difference yet. maybe cuz i`ve used it only twice so far. it is very hard to get out and i have to rinse a LOT. also it is hard to open the bottle when your hands are wet from the shower. overall it is OK. will update later after a few more times of using it.
