I got a sample size of this from Birchbox and immediately fell in love. My hair is long, thick, a little wavy, and balayaged so there's a little damage. My HG leave-in conditioner would make my hair soft, shiny, silky, and smell amazing. This ticks all those boxes, on damp or dry hair. A lot of leave-in products are really aimed at smoothing and reducing frizz. That's great and I use those too, but for me, this Oribe product is a true leave-in CONDITIONER in that it softens and moisturizes my hair so much, which in turn leads to less frizz. But despite all that, it doesn't weigh my hair down or make it greasier. Some comparisons: Olaplex #6 has a stronger scent, better at smoothing/de-frizzing, and has some heat protection as a bonus, but it doesn't make my hair as soft. Davines Love Smoother has a lighter scent, helps define my waves more, but again doesn't give the same soft silky effect. Overall, I don't think this is worth $52 but it's the best I've found so I'll definitely be buying a full size.
