The hair experts over at 12 Benefits tell us that healthy hair gets its strength and shine from a combination of natural proteins and lipids (who knew?). When you subject your hair to too much chemical processing or heat styling, it tends to lose these precious compounds. Thankfully, this leave-in conditioning mist delivers a host of benefits to dry, parched hair—from boosting the vibrancy of your existing color to preventing future damage. Bonus: The light, clean scent lingers all day long.
This lightly scented conditioner is easy to use without much mess, and feels light unlike some other types of leave-in conditioners. Looking to simplify my hair treatment routine, I saw the high reviews and purchased to try.
I feel the benefits (a little softer, shiny, less frizz) when I spray while my hair is damp and I finish by blow-drying. I see and feel hardly any benefits when I spray but do not blow-dry, even after my hair naturally dries. I've used this product daily for a couple weeks now, but am not yet fully convinced it'll be my go-to leave-in conditioner.
I was set up for disappointment after seeing the super positive reviews here--I expected amazing. Or at least something! I have long, very fine, slightly wavy, chemically treated hair. It gets weighed down easily, but needs some moisture. I style my hair one of three ways-- 1) blow dry and then wave with a straightener, 2) blow dry sections on a round brush for "straighter hair", 3) put something moisturizing in a scrunch for a beachy look. Plus on days I don't wash my hair, I generally put it up in a messy bun.
I've tried this alone and in combination in all three scenarios. I wanted to give it a fair shot so it's been a couple months of every-other-day use (I wash every other day). I haven't noticed any effect regardless of amount (though when I used a ton one day out of frustration, it just looked flat and slightly greasy). I also cannot stand the smell! I fought through it just in case the miracle everyone else seemed to have with this stuff was just delayed for me. I don't know what happened in my past that is associated with this scent, or if it's just something I can't stand, but it's horrible. It's a medicinal cherry/berry smell to me. My boyfriend felt the same, but he has a poor sense of smell so that may not be a fact to consider. Long story short, I really regret purchasing this stuff since nothing happens and there seems to be no protection since my hair has felt more and more fried since using; I normally put in a bit of argan oil and Hot Toddy, which I will return to.
I washed my hair, then sprayed "liberally" per the directions. I blow dried my hair, and turned out awful. It smelled good, but it was quite oily - I nearly re-washed my hair it was so bad! Oddly, despite the oil, the next day, my hair was dry and brittle, and not very shiny (which I might not blame on the product as the weather also got quite a bit colder). In any case, I really wanted this to have more "benefits". A bit disappointing.1
When I used this product, I found that my hair felt dirtier far quicker than when I did not use the product. I enjoyed trying it, the scent was amazing, but it didn't work for my hair type.1
this product is probably great for some people, but it makes my thin, oily hair look greasier even more quickly.1
I was open to trying this product since it came in my box and I'm usually happy with the samples. However, the detangled left my hair feeling heavy, stringy and greasy the first time I used it. I gave it a second try using less product and it was the same outcome. I do want more moisture in my hair but, greasy does not equal moist!
This porduct was great! It smelled good and did make my hair less frizzy and softer. I love that it's a perfect size for travelling I'll definitely be taking it on the next vacation!5
This product is wonderful. I received sample and liked it so much I purchased full size! It definitely has all 12 benefits!!5
My hair is always so dry! This product was amazing- I use it all the time, so I will definitely be buying the full size!4
This product was not strong enough to tame my tight kind of frizzy curls. I liked the amount of moisture it put into my hair, which tends to be on the dryer side without product. Probably wouldn't purchase full size.3
