This conditioner in conjunction with the Gentle Shampoo has been the best formula for my hair by far. Something about this conditioner creates such such a soft texture while maintaining hair's ability to curl and style, etc. Also, I never experience the weighed down look that my fine hair is all too accustomed to, to a point that the volume lasts well into a second day without a washing. The conditioner has a nice consistency, not too thick to a point where you use half of the bottle in a single shower. It really seems to last a long time in comparison to other conditioners I have tried in the past. Well worth the price, I would recommend it. Effectiveness My hair has never looked healthier or had more bounce and shine than when using this conditioner! The overall effect is simply soft, manageable hair that catches the light. I highly recommend it. Scent The scent is light and pleasant, however it isn't long lasting.
