That's the basic info for this amazing product, and it's a product I am really excited to endorse! Honestly, anybody who has ever sat in my chair will tell you that I don't often recommend conditioners. Conditioners don't help repair hair. To have healthy hair you need to keep it that way in the first place. However, if your hair is damaged, you can make it look and feel a bit better, and you can possibly protect it from continuing damage (my clients will also tell you that if I do recommend a conditioner, I almost always recommend leave-in sprays or lotions), but you can't "repair" truly damaged hair. This is why I don't push deep conditioning treatments at the salon, although I do recommend gloss treatments for shine, and I always prime a clients hair with a leave-in conditioner before I cut and style.
Having said that, this is as good a deep conditioning treatment as I've ever used. It does what I expect a conditioner to do; it makes the hair feel and look better. By that I mean that after spraying this in my clients hair, leaving it to work for 1 minute, and rinsing. The hair was completely detangled, amazingly soft, and really shiny. I didn't have to use a pick to detangle, just my fine tooth cutting comb, and the hair didn't look oily or greasy after it was dried. To recap, this is not a leave in conditioner, this is a 1 minute rinse out conditioner. So if your hair is fine, or tends to get oily and flat if you use conditioner, you will love the rinse out aspect, and if you have course, wiry, or overly curly hair, you will love the detangling and softening aspects.
This product is specifically designed to be used once a week for six weeks. I'm not sure what is supposed to happen at the end of six weeks, again, I don't believe hair can be repaired, but hey, we didn't used to be able to color or perm it either, so who knows? If this turns out to be a true "repair" treatment, I'll be sure to let you know, but if not, just enjoy the amazing texture your hair will have after just 1 minute.
This I know for sure, at $30 for a six week 1 minute deep conditioning treatment that actually does what it says it does, this is my top product pick, and the only conditioner I've ever 100% endorsed.
