I bought this on a bit of a whim, I am a hair masque lover and thought this one sounded really interesting with the gold and the awesome oils. I used my points and got this product and I couldn't be happier! It definitely smells musky, so if you are looking for a feminine/floral scented one- this isn't it. I think the smell is fitting of the India theme though, and I don't mind it at all. The scent doesn't linger so it's not a big deal. The masque comes with a little spatula, but I don't use it. It's a big tub, and a thick masque, but is so amazing! I left it on the first time for about 15 minutes as I was doing things around the house (I had just washed my hair when I got it in the mail....so I couldn't help but put it on real quick!) Then after that I have left it on for 5-8 minutes. Since it is thick, your hair will need a good rinse, otherwise your roots might look a tinge greasy. This masque leaves your hair incredibly soft! I have really damaged ends from bleaching and heat styling, so about 1/3 of my hair is pretty rough and dry. This made it feel like it was my natural hair! Soft, touchable, silky, shiny, smooth! Everything I have been wanting! My hair was super easy to comb though and style as well! My husband felt my hair and complimented it, saying he hadn't felt it this soft since before I did the ombre look! Seriously, this masque is a game changer! I absolutely can't live without it! LOVE IT!!!!
