Do you have dry hair? Is your hair in desperate need of a moisture boost? Then look no further than this deep treatment. I am a hair (& beauty) product junkie & rarely buy anything twice. But this stuff will be in my stash forever. I have relaxed hair that's to my bra strap, and my daughter has curly natural MBL hair & this beauty works miracles for both of us.
It takes just a bit I have had my tube for 3 months and use it twice a week on my hair & on my daughter's hair & we are only now needing to get more. Tangles melt, dryness disappears, all in 5 min. For a really deep treat I sit under the drier for 20 mins the rinse for bouncy beautiful hair that's not only soft as buttah but smells fantastic too. Holy grail & highly recommended for everyone. The price is slightly higher than some but a little goes a long way & it's worth every penny

This is the only Joico Product that I really like. It's not the best treatment for hair that I've ever tried, but it's good. I have shoulder length, thick, blonde hair with highlights. I've highlighted my hair for years and years, so it's a bit dry. I use this balm as a conditioner (leave it in for about a minute) and sometimes as a treatment (leave it in for longer). It makes my hair soft without making it oily. I wash my hair every two days and many treatments make my hair heavy and oily the second day, but not this one, unless I accidentally add too much, because then my hair gets super oily (it's a fine line...). I think I will buy this balm again at some point, but I'm not 100 percent sure. There are lots of good treatments out there, so I may go for those instead. I might buy it and use it as a conditioner though.

This treatment is so amazing for thick coarse hair that I have. You only need to put on the mid-length to ends of the hair. After washing, I put some leave in oil and altogether they make my hair so soft, shiny and frizz free. I've used other high end products such as Kerastase, Shu umera and macadamia oil masques and this one is the only one that tames my poofy hair. I will surely continue to purchase it.

I'm not so sure if this is a great product for people with thick and coarse hair, but I CAN say that it is amazing for someone with a lot of frizz. I use this all the time and I don't find my hair greasy or oily at all (and I even apply this closer to the crown of my head close to where I get the most frizz). When I use it I actually find my curls more defined and not weighed down at all. So if you are trying to find something to calm down your frizz, you should try this!

This product made my hair extremely greasy for several days. I had to wash it over and over again like 5 times (using a clarifying shampoo), eventually resorting to a dish-washing detergent because nothing helped. Even after using a detergent, my hair was still very greasy and I understood that the heavy oily silicone-like coating (almost industrial grade it felt) had to be dissolved using another oil (if that makes sense, because oils don't mix with water easily and no detergent helped in this case). Using a hair mask from Loreal and a moderate heat (blow drier) on my wet hair I was able to dissolve it and to wash it off eventually after two days only luckily it was over the weekend. The product was ordered from a certified dealer and the opening was intact upon the delivery. Please note that my hair is bleached, quite thick and a rather dry and I have never ever experienced anything similar before and I have used many other Joico products. This was for the first (and the last) time that I have used this balm.
This is also for the first time that I write a product review, I have felt very compelled to share this experience because if you would just use the balm and want to dry and style your hair, you may as well forget it. In my case I could not leave the house, my hair literally looked like it had been soaked in Vaseline even after several washes. Not speaking about the damage that was incurred by aggressive washes that had stripped my hair! Final verdict: no benefits, only hair damage and stress as I was very afraid my hair would be damaged forever!

Wowza! I hardly ever write reviews, but I had to on this one. My hair is past my shoulders, colored and has old highlights, is thick, coarse, wavy and just plain poofy and super dry. And I have tons of it!!! My hair met its match. This stuff is AMAZING. My new holy grail. I knew it the moment I started rinsing my hair. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed (which btw I think is necessary and may be why some reviewers didnt like it - because they needed to rinse it out more) and it still felt super soft and silky while wet. You know how with some thinner conditioners you get to a moment when you rinsed too much and you think oh crap, I gotta add a little more? Not with this stuff . It clings. As usual, I let it air dry for a while, and I could tell even then my hair was soft and calm and not its normal wiry crazy self. I then blew it dry. And guess what - My hair was under control!!! I usually have to iron the whole head, bit by bit. But with this stuff, all I had to do was iron the top layers and I was done. Like I said, AMAZING. The only thing that made my hair obey like that was a fresh Brazilian Blowout. No exaggeration here. This stuff rocks. Just rinse it well.

I have long, light brown, very thick, coarse, wavy virgin hair and this conditioner is terrible for me. It's full of dimethicone ( too much for me I guess, 3rd on the ingredients list ) which makes my hair greasy, matte, and hard to style ( I only blow dry it using a round brush )
It's hard to rinse out - first time I used it, I rinsed like I normally would with different conditioners and my hair looked like I put vaseline on it. Leaves my hair frizzy, dry and oily at the same time.
The fragrance they use in it is very strong and there's lots of it ( high on the inredients list ). I don't like the smell - soapy, cheap perfumey, very chemical, the kind that can give you a migraine. Also, my scalp didn't like it ( obviously, I never put it near my roots, but when you rinse, small amouts will always travel to the scalp ) - was a little itchy and more oily than usual. Rather expensive, won't be repurchasing.
