Oh, how I love this stuff, although I have only used it once now.. so it's too early to be so sure! :) But, my hair has been going crazy in the weather changes here (5% humidity jumped to 80%!), and so I needed to calm my hair down - as it was frizzing beyond what I am used to! I have fine, wavy, long hair that I blow dry.. and it's pretty much no-fuss.. smooth, soft, and easy to manage. After the weather changes, I tried the sleek look s&c, and AWFUL stuff. My hair was still frizzy, but felt weird, too. Instead, I researched MUA and decided upon Paul Mitchell Shampoo One, which I used in conjunction with this conditioner. I worked it into my hair real well (about a quarter-sized amount) and I could feel the difference! Left it in for a few minutes while finishing up my shower, and now, after styling, my hair is calm, soft, and not weighed down at all! I'm not sure if I can use this every day (bummer!), but it's a great addition to my tub - and I will use it 1-2x a week, unless it begins to fail me! Smells wonderful - I love all things Biolage-scented. Clean!
