This product practically fell from heaven for me. I've struggled for YEARS to make my hair lie down, be soft, not totally frizzy, etc. You really should see the walgreens hair isle that is my bathroom. Ever since I ditched cones and sulfates (went Curly Girl!) my hair's been THRIVING. But, I still seriously had issues with too much volume. It took a lot of research, but I finally found out that my hair is POROUS! That was my problem all along :P So just a warning: For those of you who have low porous hair, or can't tolerate protein: PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN AND WALK AWAY. Because that's probably why your hair is turning brittle or looks dull. Find out your hair's porosity before trying!! But if you do well with protein, or have medium-high porous hair, give it a try! It smells DIVINE, great in the bottle and great out of the bottle. Not too strong, not sticky, and my hair is lying down, bouncy and shiny. And I have biracial curls! Getting the picture? My new dream duo: Pantene curl enhancer spray gel and VO5 passion fruit smoothie conditioner as a leave in. My hair has NEVER looked better.
