Great product! I use this in between protein treatments on my coarse, dry, wavy hair, and it leaves it soft, manageable, and full of (controlled) body. Smells fantastic, too!

I am so mad! I should have discovered this product a LONG time ago!

It is magic in a bottle for seriously and chronically parched hair like mine. My hair is very curly and I relax it to loosen my curls/wave pattern slightly to make my straight styles more easily achievable. I also color it and flat iron it now and then and with the chemicals and heat damage, my hair has taken a turn for the worst when it comes to moisture. No matter how long I would sit with conditioner on my hair and use heat to help deep conditioners penetrate, the silky feel would rinse out with it and my hair will dry feeling like straw again. I JUST finished using this product after an intensive protein treatment (Nexxus Emergencee). My hair feels so good after only a few minutes with it in my hair because it feels like the moisture just isn't on top of my hair but within. Combing was a breeze and when my hair dried it still felt soft. This is the softest my hair has EVER been since birth! And the 8.5oz tube will last a while because you don't need to use that much as opposed to other formulas. This is very rich and thick and I only had to use maybe 2-3 tablespoons for my THICK hair that is at the small of my back. It saturates and spreads very well in the hair. This is officially a new staple for me and my hair can never be without this.

Wonderful, wonderful stuff!

I am overjoyed to have found this because I've been actively seeking an alternative to TIGI S Factor Serious Conditioner (good, but seriously expensive) that would not break the bank.

This took my dry, poofy, crinkly 4A hair and made it super-soft.

It is full of wonderful oils, which my hair likes. However, if your hair is oily, you may want to proceed with caution.

If you are hesitant about picking up a full size tube, you may wish to try the trial size. That's what I've done. The size is decent, 1.7 ounces. As one of the previous posters mentioned, a little goes a long way, so it will last you a while.

I really love this treatment. I always use it after a protein treatment as a deep conditioner. It's really thick, so you don't need much, even for thick hair. It leaves my hair soft and detangled, which is an added plus.
Will definitely repurchase.
UPDATE: I still use is product regularly. It's the only conditioner I use on my hair when it's out of braids. I will continue to repurchase.

This product made me love my hair again. It transformed my dry, frizzy hair into soft curls. It's definitely on my "must have" list.

My hair isnít thick or coarse but Iíve often found treatments designed for such hair help put moisture and weight into my very fine but very frizz-prone long mane. This is a very thick balm that shouldnít be put near roots. On the lengths and ends, however, it works well to hydrate, smooth and soften my hair. The fragrance is wonderfully strong and lingers all day, which is nice. Itís perhaps the best smelling range of hair products Iíve ever used. Joico has impressed me with this new range.
