This product is a great for at home treatment of dry, damaged hair and scalp. Effectiveness This product is extremely effective when used after shampooing. After shampooing if a generous helping of the product is applied to the scalp and then combed through with a wide tooth comb a shower cap placed over hair and you sit under a warm dryer for 10-15mins; you can expect exceptional results. After this process hair looks shinier, healthier and more glossy. This not only improves shine, it reduces breakage, strengthens hair, nourishes roots and stimulates growth. It does an exceptional job on both natural (ethnic) hair types as well as chemically treated locks which tend to require more care. It is slightly more expensive than other variations from is mother company but it does a good job Scent I found the scent acceptable as it is pleasant and not as strong as others and it leaves your hair with a faint lovely fragrance for a couple days after use.
