I received samples of the Infusium 23 shampoo and I really liked the way it cleaned and left my hair and scalp so I decided to go ahead and buy a full size bottle of the shampoo and conditioner. I still love the shampoo but the conditioner left more to be desired in more than one area. First of all, the color of this isn't exactly white. It's kind of an off yellow color and it doesn't really look the way I would like my conditioner to look. I'm not sure if it's a chemical or extract or what that causes the odd color but it's just not appealing to me for some reason. Secondly, the shampoo smells really good but the conditioner just doesn't pop to me. It smells a little more like an animal shampoo to me than a human shampoo. It's subtle and it's as if they tried to give it a perfume smell but it just doesn't smell the way I would like my hair to smell. It isn't citrusy or floral or fruity, it's something else I can't put my finger on but it's just not a good smell. It isn't unpleasant by any means but it isn't nice either. The conditioner is supposed to "infuse" your hair with moisture but I just don't notice that as much with this. It leaves more to be desired in that department as well. It does condition but I felt as if I had to add a lot of extra conditioner to my three feet of hair. My hair is long, but with less pricey conditioners I got better results and better conditioning. I notice that it doesn't help my dry scalp any or my boyfriend dandruff too much at all and when I try to use more product to make up for the conditioning power, I end up feeling a little greasy after my hair is all dried and styled. I'm just not overly impressed with this product, especially for the higher price. It may be a good conditioner if you're out of other options but the next time I pay more for a conditioner, it won't be this one. All that being said, the shampoo is amazing and I love it! Effectiveness It conditions some but if you use too much you're greasy. If you use too little you don't get very good results. Just not worth it for me. It didn't do a lot in my case. I loved the shampoo but the conditioner was a fail for me. Scent I just do not like the smell. It's subtle but it smells a bit like cat or horse shampoo or something for me. The scent isn't unpleasant or stinky, but it's just not nice either.
