Hands down the best volumizer I have ever used. Gives hair that needed *oomph*! No need to overuse - just a few sprays will instantly revive your style. Smell is yummy raspberry lemonade. A definite repurchase for me!
Wonderful leave-in/protectant. Leaves my dry hair buttery soft. Very airy and lightweight. Smells fresh and clean, and doubles as a hair refresher between shampoos. Great buy for $8 at Trade Secret!

Very airy for a creamy leave-in. Really softens and protects my dry, damaged hair. My hair feels soft, bouncy and healthy. A real steal at Sally's for around $5! Update: Not a bad product, but no comparison to Sebastian Potion 9.
An oxymoron - a gel that actually silkens the hair without feeling stiff or sticky? This is exactly what this gel does. My hair is left soft, silky and manageable. A tad on the pricey side at $17.95 for a 5.1 ounce tube. Biosilk Silk Therapy does almost the same thing and you get alot more product. Probably wouldn't purchase again.

Add another rave for this fantastic deep conditioner. My hair is fine, collar-bone length and dry/damaged. I used this for 30 minutes under a heat cap, and wow, BUTTERY soft hair I have now! Smell could be better - like a ginger/orange. But hey, for results like this, smells are forgiveable! A definite repurchase! Update....I have found others I like better, namely, All Soft Heavy Cream and Neutrogena Triple Moisture Mask.

I have been using this shampoo for 6 months. Within 3 weeks of my first use, I already had little hairs around my bangs/hairline that were never there before. Also, my hair seems to be growing in thicker. The shampoo is a tad drying, but nothing a deep conditioner won't offset. Smell is minty, but forgiveable given the results. My shower will never be without this! Update: Still my HG shampoo. Still growing new hairs like mad around my hairline, and my hair is growing in thicker than ever!

Hands down the BEST deep conditioner I have ever purchased. Thanks to the MUA girls for recommending! I apply this after shampooing and sit under my heat cap for 30-45 minutes. Sometimes, I'll even leave it on overnight. The result - my dry/damaged hair looks and feels shiny, soft and healthy. A definite staple in my shower!
Another HG product - I use on wet hair and it really eliminates frizz for me and leaves my hair oh so soft. Smells like caramel and is a heck of alot cheaper than Biosolk. Also, much less greasy than Biosilk. A definite staple.

Wonderful styling cream - my HG for dry, styled hair - just a dab controls fly-a-ways all day.

Bought the shampoo and conditioner because I wanted a *heavier*, very moisturizing combo for the dry, winter months. I was not disappointed. The shampoo spreads easily into a luxurious lather and the conditioner is thick, silky and detangles wonderfully. After drying, my hair was sooo soft and silky. Not crazy about the overly old-lady perfumey scent. Not HG, but not bad either.
