I bought this in conjunction with the Therappe shampoo (a liter of each, nice pairing btw) and sadly I'm running pretty low. I use way more condish than poo so I guess that should be expected. Anyway, I really like this conditioner when I wear my hair curly. I get very defined curls that feel super moisturized and smooth. Slightly weighed down, but I don't mind since I'm wearing it curly. That being said, I do not like to use this before I flat-iron my hair. This is too heavy for a straight look...it does seem to weigh my hair down and leave a residue that does not work well with a flatiron. I tried it several times and hated the result (even after using a small amount of this and making sure I rinsed it out thoroughly), so I reserve this for when I wear my hair curly. I don't think this is good for thin/fine hair as it doesn't provide much volume/bounce. Coarse/curlies will appreciate this as a rich thick condish IMO.

My hair feels so icky after using this. I'm so disappointed. It feels dry with a layer of oil (or silicone, really) over it. My hair is still poufy but feels weighed down. ICKY. What a horrible waste of money.

I bought this thinking it would be the best conditioner I could buy at a drugstore but I was wrong, and wasted my money. This hardly does anything to my hair, when I rinse it out it's as dry as it was after I shampooed. It gets one point for smelling good, and another for not further drying my hair. It just doesn't do anything at all.

well after getting my hair from jet black to a platinum blonde in just a day lol, 3 bleaches later, my hair was left BURNT AND MELTED, i used this product the next day, when my short mohawk finally dried, and it helped in just one use, it has been 3 days and 2 uses later and i can notice a diference already, VERY HYDRATING AND mkaes my hair feel, about 40% better, in only 2 uses.
would buy this again.

Ugh. Way too oily. Going back to Fekkai Protein RX.

Great for curly and/coarse hair. Adds shine, minimizes tangles. Agree with other reviewers though - miss the old formulation I grew up with. It does have a sort of fakey coconut smell which is slightly annoying however it seems to fade quickly.

Wow! I love this conditioner. I am so surprised. It made my hair, which is months overdue for a cut, look fairly good and I was actually able to comb it. Before this conditioner, my hair was very dry, so combing it took five minutes. Now it takes 30 seconds. It looks more nourished too.
It's not even that expensive as far as conditioners go. I will use this for as long as it works. I will use this conditioner for daily use and Aveda Blue Malva for treatments to keep my highlights looking fresh.
I have fine highlighted moisture-starved hair.
EDIT: 9/24/11 I've come to despise this stuff. It "worked" at first but now it's the same old ratty, dry hair. I think initially the silicones coat the hair but eventually those same silicones dry out your hair. Yuck. Hate.

Now I know why so many people are mad about the reformulation of this conditioner. :-(
I went through several bottle of the old version of Humectress in the past then just got bored and moved on to something else.
I recently got a small bottle of this along with the Therapee Shampoo and all I can say is CHANGE IT BACK!!!!! The new formula is NOTHING like the original. :-( It's like putting a creamy serum on your head. It doesn't feel like it adds moisture at all and once my hair is dry, it's REALLY D.R.Y. Plus the smell is weird. o_O
The only *good* thing I can say about it is that it defines my curls and abolishes frizz like nothing else I've used before. But then again, it's all silicones, so that's probably why.
Please bring back the original formula.
The new one is crap.
Would not repurchase.

Feels like pouring silicone on my hair, but that's ok because it is a good detangler. But I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for more natural products/curly girl type routine (just take a look at the ingredient list - I only used the new formula, so I can't comment on the changes from the old version, but the current version is a lot of synthetics & silicones at the top of the list.) This has a weird slip to it... it leaves a clean feel. That's why I like it on my wavy, long, fine hair from time to time, even though I generally avoid silicones & sulfates.

Wow. I have to agree with a couple of the other reviewers who said the formula had changed and it's not as good as it was several years ago. They're right. My hair was going through a dry spell and I'd had good results with Humectress in the past so I decided to pick up another bottle and it's absolutely not the same. It didn't help my parched hair much at all. What a let down.
