The conditioner helped tame my hair and kept it soft and shiny without the weight. It did not, however, prevent split ends. On the other hand, the shampoo was a big no-no for me as it aggravated my dandruff. I did not try the two separately.


Yays
  • Keeps hair soft and shiny
  • Affordable, though not cheap, this is not an expensive life
Nays
  • Did not prevent split ends (despite product claims)
  • Made my dandruff worse
Okays
  • Those who don't have dandruff may have better results



Buy Again?
The shampoo is a definite no. The conditioner is a maybe. I'd rather try other lines for now.
