This was my first time trying a dry conditioner, so I may just not be used to it. My hair type is normal/color treated. I thought this particular item had too strong of a scent, and I actually had to wash my hair 2 times to get the smell out. Also, while the conditioner was in my hair, I didn't think it helped to condition my hair, instead it actually felt kind of dry.
Might work for some other type of hair, but not mine.
