This conditioner is almost totally spot on with the description. I've got thirsty, thick, wavy hair which responded really well-I got all the moisture without any of the heaviness. But, I did have to use nearly the whole sample to get all that moisture. In all fairness, I have a LOT of hair, and it did just "drink" this product up like crazy. After showering, my hair was fantastic too. I just had to use a lot of product to get it that way. This isn't really a big deal, especially since the results are so nice. It just made me worry that you'd go through twice as much conditioner as shampoo were you to buy them together. That said though, I loved the samples. In fact, this Oribe moisturizing set is the best shampoo/conditioner pair I've received from Birchbox.
