I bought a few sample size/few use packets at Sally's and a few full sized of a lot of products and I'm going to use them all at least twice before making a final decision, but I'm going to start now.
The products were: Proclaim Argan Oil Intense Hydrating Masque, Creme of Nature Argan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment, Ion Effective Care Treatment, One 'n Only Brazilian Tech Keratin Deep Penetrating Conditioning Treatment, Silk Elements MegaSilk Moisturizing Treatment, Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Treatment, Silk Elements Mega Cholesterol Conditioning Treatment, Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise
I decided to buy this because of the reviews on here, and I also attempted a pre-poo because of the responses that that might work best on my type of hair. This is a heavy cholesterol treatment, but doesn't really have a strong smell. I put it on dry/slightly dampened hair and left it on for a few minutes. Then I shampooed out and followed with conditioner. I can see why people think this is too thick to just rinse out. I shampooed and still feel like a little might be left. It felt slick on my hair in the shower, like most do, but afterwards I don't feel a ton of moisture or silk like I was hoping. When it dried, I felt like this was locking it up. It seems even dryer than normal...Like moisturized somewhat but frizzy and crunchy on the ends. :( It's not that great, and I even shampooed after. And I know some people said to shampoo again the next day but I don't wash my hair that often. I don't feel like jumping through hoops for this product. It's just not simple and effective enough for me. :P One 'n' Only so much better. I don't think I'm keeping this. I did also like the Silk Elements Mega Silk Moisturizing Treatment better than this hair cholesterol. Though I might stick to just getting sample sizes of that one since I love the One 'n' Only so much!!
UPDATE: Ok so for the sake of science, I used it again. This time, I shampooed first, put it in, left it on for a few min while I did things out of the shower, went back in, re-shampooed and followed with a regular conditioner. Last time I just put it on dry/partly wet hair and shampooed after. BUT I feel like if it's not silky and the best thing ever then all this work isn't worth it. I have others I just put on like a regular conditioner, shave and go about my shower, rinse it out and it's glorious. It has to compete with time and ease as well. And so far I not thrilled. I gave it a fair second shot and my hair is still a bit chunked together, though it is a bit softer than the first try. When I break the spirals and chunks up it's frizzy, so overall I don't like this and I'll be returning it. Everyone is different but for me it didn't work. :(
