Living in the central southern United States, hot and sweaty describes most months. This requires frequent shampooing. As I color my hair, being over 40, I must deal with dry ends. I have found this conditioner to not only condition the ends of my hair well, but maintain a lightness that leaves my hair natural looking. A very little goes a long way. After application I am able to style my hair with curl/body that lasts. . . . or not. Looks great as a pony tail. And I love the fragrance. It is worth the price for working and it lasted quite awhile. I will order when I am out.
