So far, I really like this product! I've been using Mane & Tail shampoo + conditioner in order to really clean my hair and get it strong again (they are both protein products). My hair is fine, limp, lifeless and M&T makes it strong yet it always feels like straw. So it is essential that I use moisture rich products for weeks after getting my hair strong with M&T. I've been using this for a few weeks now and it's been great. I always make sure I wet my hair first (either after a shampoo or if I'm just going to use a deep conditioner) then I apply the mask. I seem to get the best results when I leave it in my hair for more than an hour with a shower cap on and allow my body heat to really work with the mask to deeply penetrate my hair. Once I wash it out, I am so surprised by the tangle free, smooth, soft results. I personally love the tub it comes in because you can get as much as you need and you don't have to worry about product left at the bottom of a bottle. It's not great for those who like to use it while in the shower. I gave it 4 lippies only because I'm waiting to see if I'll continue to get these great results.
Moisturizers -Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer

I really like this moisturizer. I've been looking for a good all purpose moisturizer that I can use during the day and at night. I stumbled upon this at Whole Foods and it does a great job of moisturizing my skin (which is dry during the winter months and normal to oily in the summer - I sweat a lot during the summer months as well so I need a moisturizer that balances my skin during the summer) without making me feel overly moisturized or oily in any way. It's very light and a little goes a long way. I'm going to continue using it and would recommend anyone to try it. I also love that it's a natural product so it's good for my skin and the environment which is a plus I wasn't particularly looking for.
Conditioner -Suave - Professionals Humectant Conditioner

I hate this conditioner. I got it b/c the bottle says it's comparable to my old conditioner (Nexxus humectress) and b/c it was super cheap. I didn't even love the Nexxus conditioner so I think the price was a major factor in why I purchased it. Used it once and my hair felt like straw! HATE IT!!! I will be returning this ASAP. Don't waste your money. The price was great (around $4 US) but I will not be buying this again or any other Suave products. EDIT: I use it to de-tangle my hair now but it's still not a good hydrating conditioner.
I just recently started using this product because my aunt recommended it. She uses it almost every day and loves it. I on the other hand had a different experience with it. I love the fact that it was on sale when I got it but that's about all I love about it. The scrub is a little harsh but that wasn't my problem with this product. It was the creamy cleanser that the beads are in, I hate it! It leaves a thin layer on your skin once you've washed it off. Downgraded it because I remembered exactly how harsh and abrasive it was.
