I've been really down on myself lately, because my hair has not been cooperating. It's been like straw, flat and all-around not what I want from it. I'd had this sample in my box for quite some time, and kept pushing it back. Finally, I decided to try it out. I am so mad that I didn't try it sooner. It does not smell good. It smells like a doctor's office- but that's sort of what it was. A doctor visit for my hair! It was suddenly soft, manageable and seemed like I'd just come from the salon. I cannot WAIT to get the full size product. Absolutely AWESOME!
