Conditioner -Bumble & Bumble - thickening conditioner

I used this with the thickening shampoo on my fine hair. I found it to be useless. Sunsilk for fine hair is far, far better for me. At least it does what it's supposed to do. This product almost made my hair sticky. I used it with another shampoo and found it to be the same...more like a cream rinse that does nothing to tame hair or give it body.
I have fine hair. I found this shampoo to be utterly useless. In fact, it seemed to drag it down. I used it with the conditioner and was most disappointed.

I truly love this product. I use it to remove makeup before using Bliss Labs Fabulous Foaming Cleaner. It smells wonderful! It does make the eyes burn a little if you don't keep them firmly closed as it contains either menthol or eucalyptus.

I have normal skin that is fine and wrinkle-free despite advancing age! I bought this product as I like something foamy and also exfoliating. Although it doesn't foam as much as I thought it would (and doesn't warrant the term in its name), the exfoliating beads are just great. They are so fine that you can barely feel them, but they work to give a soft glow to the skin. The product is nicely packaged and smells WONDERFUL! So fresh and clean. I use a cream cleanser (currently Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser) to take off my makeup in the evening BEFORE using FFC. In the morning, I use just the FFC.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! I have very fine hair and apply this to moist hair half an hour prior to washing. (Make sure you don't use your best towel to wrap your hair in as this stuff is green and gooey.) When you wash, the avocado treatment mixes with your shampoo to create a conditioning shampoo that is rich and creamy. I still use a conditioner afterwards, and my hair is silkier than it's ever been.
I found this product to be dismal at best. My hair came out all stiff and dry to the touch. Each hair looked sort of frizzy...the exact OPPOSITE of what I expected. I bought the whole line for my fine hair and found it to be no better than many drugstore brands. In fact. Sunsilk's anti-pouf line is a whole lot more effective in giving me a sleek and thicker look. Considering the expense, I'd say the efficacy of this product is nothing more than a lot of hype.
What a disappointment! I "invested" in the three products for my fine hair, at great expense. I found all three of them to be less effective than drug store "value" brands. I also found the long, thin neck to be unwieldy. Definitely NPT my fave line by a long shot.
Having bought the whole "system" for my fine hair (shampoo, conditioner, reconstructor) I can only say I was extremely disappointed by these products. I honestly find Sunsilk's cheap and cheerful "blue" products far superior. The conditioner had to be supplemented by the Sunsilk for me to comb gently through it with my pic. Considering the high price, I think the products are highly overrated.
