My Thoughts:

Holy mole-y, this stuff is so THICK, it’s almost solid. It’s a pain squeezing the product out of the tube, which loses points because those of us with hand and wrist pain can’t use products like this because of the packaging. I honestly had to use my foot to step on it to squeeze it out so I can put it in a spare jar that I have to be able to use it. The chemical smell isn’t too potent and fades after rinsing out so there isn’t an issue with that. Unfortunately, I have had better results from a deep conditioning oil treatment with oil to have a more intense conditioning effect. This product works best for hair that is coarse (not dense) with either a lot of chemical or heat damage. The amount required for each application varies on the length of hair, for example, my hair is about midway down my back, thin-normal, very dense, with mild heat damage so I use about 1.5 oz of this with 1/2 oz of oil. Due to my hair not being coarse, it isn’t able to fulfill it’s potential, but it does pretty well on my clients with coarse hair, whether or not they have dense hair or not. For best results, towel-dry hair and apply using a wide-tooth comb using 1-inch sections, wrap in a warm towel, let set for 5 minutes, and rinse. Make sure to still use a leave-in conditioner to help prolong the results. I purchased this as a duo set at a cosmo professional store which is a relief for those of us in the field because it helps us save money on the products we burn through the most. Used weekly, this can help protect and replenish damaged hair from the daily wear and tear from heat and environmental damage.
