Having been wary of 2-1 combos in the past, it took a while before I tried this one. But I am happy to report that I was more than pleasantly surprised. My stylist has told me that the test of a good conditioner is how easily you can comb out your wet hair after having used the product. This one worked wonderfully well, especially given that it's also a shampoo. My hair also felt well cleaned and looked shiny once it was styled. The only thing, and it's very small, maybe, is that it makes my hair smell like clean laundry. Not to say that it is unpleasant, but I guess I'd rather not have my hair smell like laundry. Overall, though, this seems to be an excellent product, particularly good for travel to reduce the number of tubes of goo to pack. I'll probably buy this in full size.
