I absolutely love, love, love this conditioner. It is at Holy Grail product status for me right now. The slip it has is amazing, it makes tangles melt like butter in the sun. It moisturizes so well that I even forget its a light protein. And the fact that it is a light protein helps to strengthen my lines of demarcation while I am transitioning. Which means this conditioner ticks the right boxes. I have used the conditioner about 5 times now, and I must admit, it gives consistent results. I use it mostly after clarifying, although I have used it to dry deep condition as well. Still, it works well in either case, as a deep conditioner on dry hair and as a normal DC after a shampoo. I have used this conditioner after doing a medium protein treatment with Aphogee 2 Minute Keratin Reconstructor. I did not experience any protein overload, since like I said before, it moisturizes so well that one can forget it is a light protein. The smell is pretty strong, it has a banana smell. I sometimes like the smell, but at other times that overly banana scent just kills my vibe. And also, the fact that it comes in a teeny weeny one use pack bugs me. The pack is enough to use for anyone, even people with massive amounts of hair like me. But I would prefer a 2 litre tub (are you taking notes ORS?) so that I can use this conditioner daily if possible. The price is also pretty reasonable, I have seen it on Amazon being sold for $3.49 while I got it at Jeenzbeautysupply for $3.
All in all, I give this conditioner 5/5 thumbs up coz it's pure awesomeness in a pack.
