Seriously my hair has never been smoother than after using this masque. I take a pretty decent sized dollop and comb through all hair, twist into a bun, and leave for 5 minutes while in the shower. Rinse, let air dry mostly, then finish with blow dry. My hair has never looked or felt softer, smoother or shinier. And it does not feel greasy or heavy, although the masque itself is quite rich. Highly recommend. I have long, straight, thick hair that can get frizzy and dry, and using this once a week keeps it really nice.
