I've used this product on very thick, wavy, color treated hair for over a year and can simply state, USE IT, trust me! It makes my hair feel so soft, silky and luxurious. And it does not leave any kind of weighted down or coated feeling to my hair either. Scent I don't know how to describe the scent, but very fresh. Smells wonderful and I always get comments from people that my hair smells great!
