What I'd Say:

ProsCons
  • Organic ingredients
  • No petrol-chemicals
  • Hair felt stronger after use
  • Makes hair more manageable
  • Relatively expensive
  • Hard to get hold of
  • The bottle isn't easy to use
  • Didn't improve how the hair felt
Honestly, I wasn't so impressed by this product. Not that product was rubbish or anything - it was just okay. I was expecting more from this product as I have had great experience with other product from the same line. I tried this product once weekly after shampooing my hair and experimented with using heat and no heat but I really saw no improvement on how it conditioned my hair.

The conditioner smells like green tea or a mild herbal tea which isn't the most attractive scent on a hair product but it isn't horrible. The consistency of the conditioner is quite thick which I really like in a deep conditioner. I applied deep conditioner for about 30 minute each time and rinsed, after which my hair did feel much stronger but not softer. However I do believe after the deep conditioner did make my hair more manageable and easier to style.

Bottom line: It's an okay deep conditioner but it doesn't make it to my staple product list.
