I've used this with the cleanse and mend shampoo and it does a good job of cleansing and leaves hair soft and shiny. It's lightweight unlike many other moisturizing conditioners and has a nice scent. If you're looking for a conditioner that will moisturize dry hair, I'd recommend a different brand. This one is great to use regularly with the shampoo and I have noticed fewer split ends since I've been using it. The only damage I do to my hair is straightening every few days and occasionally curling, and it keeps my hair looking healthy. Not sure how much this conditioner would help if you color or heat style a lot, but it works great for me! It's my favorite inexpensive conditioner and has lasted me about 4 or 5 months!
