This product is not horrible but definitely not worth it AT ALL.....I didn't get any stand out results from this and find that many drugstore conditioners would give same results if not better..it's just OK on the moisturizing properties...other then that............. no extra detangling,smoothing,etc
Hair -Unlisted Brand - KIRKLAND SULFATE-FREE SHAMPOO

HG status...one of my favorite shampoo/conditioner duos and I have tried it alllll from kerastase to suave. I am not a hater of sulfates ...So I will use products depending on how it makes my hair feel/look. I have tried several products from pureology and this brand outbeats it by far! My hair is left unusually shiny and smooth! Also the scent is nice and my hair never seems to get buildup ,etc.

One of my absolute favorites!! At first I was skeptical after getting out of shower and my hair was somewhat tangled and not easy to comb through...I don't know if any one else has this problem as I didn't see any in the reviews...but that didn't matter at all once I saw the outcome. My hair was left super shiny,extremely smooth and manageable. Smell is soooooooo nice too and seems to linger....Only negative is it is pricey and seems like it may go by quicker then some of my other pricier masks (it is thick in texture and I find I need more then usual to coat hair)
awesome blush!!!! dusty pink *no shimmer,sparkle*,very pigmented,great quality and cheap!!!! Seriously it creates the perfect flushed look.I honestly see this as a high quality blush just like the nars ones I own!
absolutely love this mask and it IS worth the price. Using this is a guarantee that I will have a great hair day. It makes my hair silky,manageable and super shiny. Love the scent too, such a nice soft almond scent. This and the oleo mask are hg's
Horrible product....I am not sure what it does at all. I do like the scent (tea tree)....and that's about it...only thing i can think of is that it is nice to feel on your scalp (refreshing?)
Love this product! Gives my hair body,controls style,smooths,defines.Love the smell too. This seems to be similar to Redkens Rewind but this product is a notch up....so many uses for this product
EDIT FINAL TIME: this stuff used on a regular basis ends up drying hair out no matter how well you condition!!!!! *edit* (I now find that this shampoo works with my my more intense conditiners,treatments so I now changed the rating. On its own with a regular conditioner I think this is too drying but with the intense treatments this adds great shine) original review: I thought this shampoo would be perfect for my highlighted hair. I was very disapointed and definitely will not be purchasing more from the chroma riche line. The shampoo seemed drying on my hair (which I never find this to be the case with any product really) and did not add any benefits really except a bit more of shine. The oleo line is so much better for making hair shiny and color pop
This mask makes my hair INCREDIBLY shiny,smooth,straight and manageable.This is the best mask I have ever tried and find the results truly worth the $. Only thing I do not like is the strong scent which seems to linger a bit. Oleo line is HG for my long heavily highlighted hair

decent product...definitely would not repurchase. It did make my hair a BIT softer,manageable but that's about it. There are much better products out there that are cheaper or even from FF. FF technician color care mask is HG and only takes 3 minutes and provides amazing results. This mask states 2o minutes is needed,and you need a whole lot of product and the results are just MEH. I even get better results from some regular conditioners out there. I would give 2.5 rating if I could for the price/results..because It's not horrible,didn't weigh my hair down,etc.
HG....worth they $$$. My hair is left smooth,shiny,and manageable. I use regular conditioner AND this leave in/heat protectant every day and my hair is never weighed down,greasy,etc. I find it odd that some mention the off puting scent as I actually love it. Also,although it is pricey,only very little is needed each time!!! I have long hair,heavily highlighted and thin but lots of it
After using this product I will not try another brand of powder,etc. It looks so natural,NEVER cakey no matter how much is put on, and has great coverage.Also,although it is actually of good value because it seems to really last a long time. My complexion seems to have improved after using this as well. I just wish they had a larger variety of colors.

HG HG.....and a little really does go a long way! I usually go through hair products soo fast,but honestly just a bit coats the hair making this product not so bad for the price. This leaves my hair baby soft,smooth,shiny and also makes the color pop. This has to be the best deep conditioner I have tried and find even using it twice a week will not cause buildup/weigh my hair down.

Leaves my hair feeling smooth,shiny and soft with no build up! Love love love this product and it's so cheap...I must say it is up there with the super pricey salon lines I have tried.Hair just consistently stays in great shape (manageable,soft,etc) and actually doesn't get tired of this stuff (by buildup,etc)....which usually happens for me .Seriously this line is one of the best s/c duos I have tried!
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Solia Ceramic Ion Flat Iron

I have now owned 3 solias and now maybe a 4th (not by choice)....The last iron I bought only lasted 6 months or so and one day it didn't turn on! I returned to folica.com and got a replacement on warranty and what do you know....the SAME THING happend again after only a few months of having this one. I probably will send this one back in because it still is on warranty but I will never re purchase a solia again. Performance wise I have always liked it. I dont feel like it ever snags my hairs like others have mentioned. Hair is easily straightened and I find no need to keep going over areas over again. Honestly though the one I bought at Target to use while I shipped the solia back the first time works basically just as well.
