I used to use this product on my coarse, wavy hair years ago, before products like Frizz Ease and Bio Silk were even dreamed of. But time passed and so many great silkening, smoothing products have come on the market and my beat up old tube of VO5 was long forgotten. Usually, I flat iron my hair twice a week (after I shampoo) - that's usually all it needs. Even after a workout at the gym, most of the time, my hair is still pretty presentable til its next washing, sometimes with a minor touch up with the flat iron. But for the last 2 months, I've been practising hot yoga and that has really played havoc with the look of my hair - I leave the studio looking like I've been dragged through a hedge backward and then had 1,000 volts of electricity shot through my hair. Honestly, it looks like a fright wig, because it has frizzed and waved up so much. Because of this, I've been using my flat iron more and it has been taking a toll on my hair. It also doesn't help that I haven't had a hair cut since May (yikes!). I wanted something I could apply to the dry ends of my hair to put back a bit of the oil and moisture the lack of trims and all the flat ironing has taken out and I suddenly remembered VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing. I know my old tube is kicking around this house in a box somewhere but I went to the drugstore to get a new box - for a whole 4 bucks, I think. It is exactly what my hair needs....a bit of oil, a bit of "grease" and as my hair is thick and coarse, even if this stuff weighs it down a bit, that's not necessarily a bad thing for me. The tube will probably last 20 years, even with fairly regular use as I use less than a pea sized amount and it does the trick. Sometimes, these old products are just perfect.
