My Thoughts:
I try to get a few uses out of a product so I can give a pretty thorough assessment.  Sometimes you get different  results depending on how and what you use it with, so I try to give something a few chances before giving up on it completely.  I just finished off this 8.5 fl. oz tube and I think  I got maybe 5 uses out of it.  I used this conditioner both for deep conditioning on wet hair and as a prepoo on dry hair.  It's called All Soft Heavy Cream and it is definitely that; very thick and heavy.  I  had a hard time distributing this cream through my hair (wet and dry).  There was no way I could use my wide tooth comb to distribute it.  The cream kind of hardens after letting it sit on your hair for a while.  I've realized that I'm not a fan of very thick cream based products.  Eventually I started applying it through my hair in small sections to make sure I got it into every strand.  It also gives very little slip after rinsing.    My hair did have some softness, but I was not wowed by this product at all.  This product is kind of pricey.  I got my tube from a friend of mine so I did not pay for it.  For the results that I got I definitely would not purchase this product and would probably only use it if it was given to me or if I got it on clearance.


Has anyone else tried this product? What did you think?


Thanks for reading,

  1. I wasn't pleased with this product either. It made my hair soft but the softness wasn't lasting. It was definitely a bust for me too..
