I was expecting so much more from this product.After using it though, I am surprised to see such great reviews.The sample size of the conditioner was insufficient, for starters. When trying a new shampoo/conditioner set I always like to try it more than once before making a decision, but I was not able to. I feel they should match the size of the shampoo and conditioners in a set but this shampoo came in a small bottle that I would get more uses from and the conditioner came in a small foil packet. Even while applying it felt like my hair wanted more, I had originally hoped to get two uses out of the packet, so wrong, not even one full use. As soon as I opened it the smell was very strong, much too strong for me, but it wasn't unpleasant, so I could overlook that if the conditioner worked well. It doesn't. I would say it had very little effect on my long dry-ish hair, but that isn't true. The effect on my hair was almost detrimental. It was so dry and snarled after use that I actually got back in the shower to condition with another product. Maybe it was unique to me since the reviews are so good otherwise, but I would definitely not recommend this hydrating conditioner to anybody. I also received a sample of the clarifying set and I'm not even sure if I will try it.
