I have long hair and since there is an increasing amount of gray in it I color it a few times a year, not every six or eight weeks but two or three times a year. As a result my ends are usually a mess before a trim as they were a week or so ago when I found this sample in my goodies to try bag and decided to try it. I like the way it smells, the way it feels and most of all how well it works, as i said my ends were a mess and even though I saw improvement after the first week now that i have been using it for a week or two my ends are in much better shape, my hair feels better after all and the shine has returned. To be fair I use nice products on my hair,but it never seemed shiny to me, since i have started using this product I can see the shine in my hair. I plan to buy this product once my sample is gone, I also see that they make a leave in conditioner as well, I may pick them both up since I also use leave in products from time to time.
