I got this as a sample in a Christmas gift order. I was at first, like "eh, my hair is dead". I usually have soft, fine blonde hair. I've been coloring for years but didn't use to bleach it before so I'd not hurt it too bad. Well, I decided I wanted BRICK RED - which requires bleaching. I did that for 8 months which ended in 2 bleaching treatments within a few days and a repeat at 4 months. My hair is past my armpits - the longest I've ever had it. I was sad I'd have to cut it. I thought it was time to use up my samples before cutting it. I'd tried expensive stuff, store brand, "masks", serums, and even my old standby of hot oil. I was at the point of no return.
I applied this (the whole packet) and left it for a minute or so, just to get it over with and the moment I rinsed it, I knew it was fixed. I was able to brush it again while wet. It dried to the softest it's ever been and it turns out, I DO have my Mama's soft curls when my hair gets long - I just needed to give it back what it used to have - nourishment and shine! Now, my hair is jet black (I've always kept my natural blond on top on any color to avoid roots showing) and let me tell you, it looks unbelievably healthy - both the uncolored blonde AND the once horribly frizzy, straw-like colored areas.
