I stumbled across **Burt's Bees' Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo** purely by accident. I was in Houston, Texas due to a medical emergency for my dad and was stranded without a good conditioner. Desperate for a deep conditioner to repair my dry, damaged hair I asked the CVS staff for their guidance. Their only suggestion was Burt's Bees'. I took it back to the hotel that night and crossed my fingers. The promise, "Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment restores body, shine and manageability to dry and damaged hair. Excellent for both women and men alike. Makes a great styling aid too!". So I jumped in the shower, drenched my hair and squeezed out a tablespoon of the product. I was horrified at the appearance, but the smell was amazing. Applied, and waited 3 minutes (the bottle suggests 15 minutes at least). I shampooed and used my regular conditioner and I was delighted at how soft and silky my hair was while wet. Tired and mentally exhausted I went to bed with wet hair and wasn't truly able to appreciate what had just happened to my hair. When I saw my hair in the morning I was thrilled! It was beautiful, even though it looked like I had a fight with an egg beater. I was in desperate need of a root touch up, but my blonde had never been so shiny. When I arrived at the hospital that morning to see my dad the nurses went crazy over my hair. I had at least 6 different ladies ask me what I did differently and then they wouldn't stop touching and smelling it. Not only was I thrilled but others noticed immediately. I was SOLD, and still am. It is the only deep conditioner I will recommend.
