Sometimes I go to town at Ross when I see marked down name-brand beauty products. It happened last week, and while I wouldn’t call it a full-blown haul, I was pretty smug walking through the parking lot with my swag.
When I saw this leave-in conditioner, I snatched it up because I’m trying to let my hair rest and recover after being a redhead for the past six months. On top of trimming my split ends and applying different hair masks and deep conditioning treatments, this has become a part of my after-shower routine.
It’s gentle and helps detangle my hair really well. When I tease and curl my hair, a lot of times it’s still tangled after shampooing and conditioning in the shower, but I used this in a situation like that and I could comb straight through after spraying it on towel-dried hair.
Sometimes protein products leave my hair dry, but supposedly the soy can’t over proteinize my locks, so that’s a plus. It smells good but I can’t tell what the scent is supposed to be. It’s sort of citrusy and spicy at the same time. Is that weird? It sounds kind of weird but I like the smell. Of course it’s kind of silly if the benefits end once your hair dries, but my hair felt silky and nice. It was softer if I let my hair air dry, but I don’t blow-dry my hair very often so no worries there. And since my hair is fine, I always worry about product leaving my hair limp and greasy. This product did none of that. It didn’t pump up my volume or anything, but it doesn’t claim to do that. It just makes it soft and healthier looking.
I’ll definitely buy this again when it runs out even if I have to spend full price, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I’ll have more discount-discount department store luck.
