I wanted to like this, I truly did. I am always up for trying new deep conditioners and I generally have a bit of luck selecting products from the "ethnic" hair section, probably because my hair is very curly and needs a bit more moisture than most run-of-the-mill conditioners are apt to give.
When I saw a decent sized packet of this for $1.99, of course I'm willing to give it a whirl. All I can say is, I'm glad I didnt opt for the full size (if it's available) because this did nothing for my hair!
The first time I tried this, I left it on for a ludicrously long time because it was a pajamas only day and, after washing it out, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. My hair felt exactly the same as it had earlier that day- in fact, there are a number of fairly "weak" (low moisture) conditioners out there that left my hair feeling better.
Second times a charm, right? Not so much- I gave this another shot some days ago and once again, my hair didn't feel any more moisturized than if I had used a moisturizing shampoo. I had to go in with another conditioner but at that point, the die had been cast and my hair doesn't feel so hot. Blechh.
So, moral of the story- this didn't set me back any big money (one lippie) and it didn't make my hair feel WORSE, so out of generosity I'm giving two lippies but really I can't fathom ever using this again. For the sake of honesty, I will say that the proteins in this conditioner might have disturbed my hair a little, and it's not necessarily the quality of the conditioner that's the problem. I've been known to have this issue in the past. If you have low-porosity and/or protein sensitive hair, be warned.
