UPDATE: I stopped using this long-ago, because it's not essential to my routine, long before the shampoo and conditioner stopped working. I still stand by my review, it's nice stuff, but I've not much use for it myself.
This is funny stuff, a leave-in treatment, meant to be weightless, used in conjunction with the Long & Strong system. It's hard to measure the effect of a single product here, as I can't actually pinpoint which product is doing what. Perhaps I am suckering myself by buying all three products, but all I can say is, my hair is soft, silky, shiny, supremely manageable, just out and out exquisite. My hair is not particularly troublesome, but it does require tender attention, being dry and colored.
I'm not sure how to describe the effect these products have on my hair except to say, after five uses, my hair looks the way it's supposed to, if it were in top condition and styled by a professional. This is *before* any styling or product. Fantastic.
This product is a light and silky cream—weightless? I'm not sure. My hair is massive, fine but lots of it, so volume is simply not an issue, but it doesn't make my hair feel sticky or crunchy, so that's "weightless" enough for me—with a scent that smells remarkably like Cacharel Amor Amor. I think there is potential for buildup, because it does have silicones.
