I first tried this Herbal Essences Break's over strengthening leave-in conditioning cream a few months back when my mom went through all of her old hair products she didn't want. I see why she gave me this one, my hair felt awful after using it. I did not use a whole lot of it (about a dab the size of a penny) and I did avoid applying it to my scalp, which usually accumulates a lot of extra oil. This cream did smell very good, I just did not like the effects that it had on my hair. My hair is pretty thin and flat as it is, this product only made it worse. The only good thing my hair gained from using this product was that It had a lot of moisturizer that day, and it tamed my frizzy little fly aways. Other than that, I didn't like it, and I would never buy it. Effectiveness I didn't find this leave-in conditioning cream to be very effective on my hair. My hair wasn't really smooth, it was more on the greasy side. This product is not for me. Scent It does have a very nice smell to it, very clean and pretty.
