This stuff is ok. I've bought it in the past and wasn't crazy about it. I bought it again because I work out all the time so I shampoo most days; I wanted a cheap leave-in conditioner and this fits the bill. It does add shine, control frizz, and seems to prevent damage but the packaging is awful--it really should have a pump/spray top. You get a ton of it, too, so I'm stuck with it for a while.

This was such a disappointment for me :( I have ample amounts of long fine curly to wavy hair that is prone to breakage. I love infusium's moisturology conditioner for my hair and thinking that this would be a good product too- i soon realized it was not. Even upon following the instructions exactly I found my hair dull and straw-like with a light filmy coating. The consistency I found was runnier than expected- I happened to have a cheap spray bottle i got at walmart for a couple bucks that i use for various things and upon putting the product in that it was much easier to distribute. (After reading a few of the older reviews it seems to be that they used to have it in a spray bottle that didn't work well either- but why not just fix the old spray bottle to distribute the product easier instead of the way it is now?) Also i didn't care for the smell very much either- kinda musty but cleanish? can't really describe it. The amount for the price is fantastic- other than that I will continue to search for a decent leave in treatment. Johnson's detangling spray worked better than this did.

I used several different Infusium leave ins over the years, but it's been a few years since I've touched any of this stuff, and there's a reason for it. It didn't do any kind of conditioning to my curly, coarse, dry hair. It's too thin and sticky feeling as someone else mentioned, and I really feel like it dried my hair out.

i started using this again after running out 2-3 mnths. ago..i use this in place of mousse for my natural waves b/c it sinks into my hair as it dries, doesn't sit on top of my hair and give me the "wet look"....i never realized that it was also calming my frizz until i used it yesterday morning and washed my hair later that night-my hair air dried with NO frizz and it was so soft! my waves were defined ringlets as if i had put product in it! i have long hair and my ends were feeling dry for a while, but now my ends feel like i just got a trim...i woke up this morning and i didn't have frizzzy wild waves like i was expecting! all i had to do was run a very light amount of moroccon oil to smooth some flyaways over my top layers and i was done with my hair-normally i would have to dampen my hair a little and use a diffuser to dry...you do need a spray bottle and i do recommend some water but don't dilute it too much..the water is just so it can spray more evenly, otherwise it sprays too much on one section of hair and it can give you that stringy look

This review is for the "Infusium 23 with i-23 complex to nourish stressed and damaged hair step 3 leave-in treatment" in the silver 16oz container. I just want to be clear as I understand that Infusium makes a lot of leave-in formulas. This product was the worst for my hair. It actually dried it out and made my hair feel hard and like straw. I was in denial for the longest time until I decided to stop using it and my hair actually improved in texture and quality. I would not recommend for naturally dry curly hair.

Hmm this didn't really do anything to my hair... I used it both wet and dry (like the packaging says) and experimented with different other products and I think I'll just save my $6.00. It just made my hair feel stringy and knotty in the end.

I received a sample of this through my school and as soon as I tried it, I went back and got about 20 more sample pouches.
It made my hair very soft and frizz free. No fly aways anymore! my hair has never behaved this nicely in such dry weather. My boyfriend even noticed how much softer it was. Thats right, he noticed!! haha
Overall, this thing is amazing. As soon as I use up all of my samples, I will definitely get a real bottle.

Pure and utter crap of a leave-in. Did absolutely nothing for my hair but make it feel weird and sticky. Smells odd and has a watery consistency. Please, if you have long, thick, dry, relaxed hair, steer clear of any Infusium 23 products!

This product made no real difference on my long, fine hair. It makes my hair feel like straw and feel dirty after 12 hours or so. I would rather use oil to condition my hair. The only positives are that it smells great, and comes in a bootleg that lasts a long time.

first of all you need a spray bottle, you can use one that you have around the house its not that big of a deal...this product is worth it, my hair was breaking and so brittle from so many hair dyes. I saw it in walmart and I bought it. I was amazed my front hairs that were disgusting and causing me so much stress are so much better now. I have only been using for 3 days now but I notice a difference immediately the next morning. I do use biolage strenghtening shampoo and conditioner and it had not stopped my hair from breaking, but infusium leave in treatment did and I LOVE IT!!! my hair is not fried and I can leave it out now.

I used to use this product all of the time when my hair was healthy and damage-free..due to weak dry hair I've been experiencing thanks to a previous BC pill I was on ..I need to now restore my healthy hair back...I found the original version of this at Sallys and I pour it in a spray bottle mixed with a little bit of water..I find that if you spray too much and dont dilute it your hair can become a little stiff bc it has protein in it..I believe including this in my regimen is helping my breakage and my hair is coming back to life

This was my first leave in conditioner and I've been using it for three months now; especially after i bleached a few sections of my hair. All I can say is that this doesn't do much for me. It makes my hair smell a little better and calms down the frizz a bit and makes it slightly soft, but it does nothing for my damaged streaks or my naturally wavy brown hair.
Overall, it does something. But really it doesn't do much. I'm hoping to find a better deep conditioner that helps my hair look healthy.

I love this, i apply it to my damp hair and it makes my natural waves just so much better. It also leaves my hair nice and soft. I also apply this before i straighten my hair, kind of like a heat protectant, and my hair straightens so much better. My hair wont get frizzy and my hair will stay nice and straight the whole day. Its also really cheap, and it comes in a gigantic bottle that last forever.

I love this stuff. It leaves my hair so soft and smells so good. I pour it into a spray bottle so that I won't make a big mess with it. The thing I like the most is that it's more watery than other leave-in conditioners and feels like it's actually moisturizing my locks instead of coating them and making them greasy and heavy. For about $6 for a gigantic bottle, I'll definetly be buying this again.

Not bad, but no noticeable results.

I tried to convince myself this was doing something but no...this stuff just doesn't work. First off I think they could have come up with a more creative packaging and I absolutely hated the spray mechanism. Its sprays like some kind of laser when it should cover a more radial area.
My hair ended up feeling kind of rough...that feeling you get when you didn't properly wash out the conditioner out of your hair. It did the opposite of treating the damage because it made the problem worse. Hair felt like straw. I really can't believe the good reviews on this one. Its better to use a hair mask 1-2 times a week than spray this after every shower.

I used to like this until I tried other leave-in conditioners and realized how crummy this is. It makes my hair feel stiff and rough, straw-like with a slight sticky/tacky quality. It certainly doesn't make it feel improved. The watery formula needs to be packaged as a spray, and it seems like that's what everyone ends up doing with it. The one thing I do like about it is the smell.

You get your money's worth-not that much. This actually seemed to dry out and damage my hair more with consistent use. I chucked it, and I usually don't chuck anything. Consistency is like water, and honestly it performs like water. Cheap, that's all it has going for it.

This is one of my favorite drug store products. My hair is dry and damaged and it made it feel so much softer and it looked a lot healthier than what I started with. It also smells like a dream.

I love this stuff. I have very coarse, curly hair and this conditioner is perfect for it. When other reviewers say that it dries out the hair, I think they are describing the texture of the hair, air-dried, after use. It does leave a fairly firm film on the hair if you use it generously and air-dry. However, it does define curl beautifully, and mixed with an anti-frizz serum, my hair looks like it is in great shape. I like the spray bottle, as the spray goes exactly in the direction in which the nozzle is pointed. When I air-dry without this product, I can really see all the good that this cinditioner has done, since my hair is silky and shiny. Definitely an HG.
