Number 4 Hydrating Set

It’s time to make it rain—on your hair, that is. With its ability to provide all-day moisture, this intensely hydrating shampoo and conditioner is basically a CamelBak for your strands. The satiny shampoo is gentle enough to use every day, while the decadent conditioner helps to bring dry, brittle hair back to life. Both products are loaded with natural moisturizers that calm frizz and restore fried ends while guarding against future damage (flat iron, we’re looking at you).

Stink!!

This stuff stinks like perfume! I tried it once and I thought it smelled strong in the shower. I didn't know what I was in for later! All day my hair smelled and made me nauseous. It stank up my pillow. I had to re wash my hair and change my pillowcase after I aired the pillow out on the balcony. I'm game for a nice smelling shampoo but this was like pouring a bottle of perfume in my hair.

Too strong scent
Purchased

I like this product. It feels really nice on my hair; however, the scent is too strong for me. I had to return the product that I purchased. :-(

Love the sample but ....

Love the sample and ordered the shampoo and conditioner. Loved it still,and reordered and this time it wasn’t the same,the color,texture,or smell.Very disappointed. Paid too much for this product to not be the same as when I first sampled it. 

It works, but it smells

I bleach and tone my hair every 4.5 to 5 weeks so this hydrating set is something I really wanted to like. It was great for my hair and seemed gentle enough for repeated use. It also didn't strip my toner so all positive so far. However, the smell makes it unusable for me. It is this cheap cologne, headache inducing smell that I just can't stand. I don't have a sensitivity to scents, very few cosmetic smells bother me, but this one is just too much.

the smell got to me

I loved the way it made my hair feel. Definitely hydrated without making my hair feel oily. My hair was soft and light weight. however it smells like cheap men's perfume and I kept catching whiffs throughout the day and it eventually gave me a headache.

Bought it and sorry that I wasted my money
Purchased

After trying the sample, I purchased it and wish I hadn't. Pretty pricey (for my budget) and I guess I was wrong about how I thought it worked on my hair. Now it is sitting on my counter top unused or used as a last resort (say I don't get my order from BB in time).

was expecting more

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.

Smells good

Pretty good shampoo, but the smell was the best thing. Didn't really feel like it did much except make my hair smell good.

Not a huge fan
Purchased

I have really dry, curly, over processed hair. I thought this was going to be a great shampoo and conditioner set but it felt my hair dry.

Not the best for the price
Purchased

I don't really like the smell of the shampoo or conditioner. I also felt it still left my hair dry. I prefer Kerastase over this brand.
