I have tried a lot of the smooth vitality pantene line and it does work well. I have hair that is down to my hips and I have a hard time finding conditioner that detangles my hair without making it flat and weighed down. I use a very big pile to get it all through my hair so maybe if you have shorter hair and use less it would work better. It smells awesome and my hair is always easy to brush after the shower. It is pretty thick and letting it sit in my hair for just a minute makes my hair very shiny and soft. It works perfectly on my daughter's hair and her hair seems much lighter and easier to style after using it. I also used the matching shampoo with it, and it leaves my hair smelling very good. I recommend it for average length hair.
