I was very excited about getting a free sample in my last purchase. The promise was almost too good to be true! Based off of most of the reviews, I thought I would be pleasantly surprised with the product. Unfortunately, not only did this product do nothing for my hair (and I mean nothing), it couldn't even replace my conditioner! I left it on towel-dried hair per the instructions, rinsed it off, and my hair felt dry and frizzy. So - basically it did nothing to nourish or protect my hair. I ended up using a blow dry oil and protectant spray and styled my hair as usual. Problem was, now my hair seemed more dry and breakable than when I started!
