In conjunction with the whole shampoo and conditioner from this Root Awakening line of John Frieda's, this styling product was absolutely amazing. First of all, it has the same amazing minty fresh smell that I adore from this line as well as a relatively good pump for dispensing the product. However, I haven't bought the full size. I was sent a sample from the company and I have seen some reviews that say the sample compared to the full size is vastly different. Which confuddles me but I suppose if you can get the sample for those special occasions it will do the following things. When I used it, it completely smoothed my hair, even the usual flyaways that I get after I finish blowdrying. It shaped my bangs exactly how I wanted them with no clumps and left a beautiful shine- even until the following day and after when I didn't wash my hair!
