How to Use It
Use this product as you would most deep conditioning treatments. It's best to apply right after shampooing with a moisturizing cleanser to damp hair. The complementary Creamy Shampoo is a good start. As the phrase "hair mask" suggests, this conditioner is very thick and designed to fully coat each hair strand. It has a light, pleasant scent; nothing overpowering.
After coating your hair and combing through, cover with a plastic cap or hot towel and let sit for about 15 to 20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly. If your hair is in good shape already, use it once or twice a month, but if your tresses are "dry, damaged and broken," (the targeted user) use it once or twice a week until your hair gets healthier. Then you can taper off usage to about twice per month.
How Well Does It Work?
This conditioner works extremely well. As I normally do, I used a paddle brush to work this product throughout my hair. It makes it very easy to comb through tangled tresses, but always begin at the bottom and detangle as you go up the hair shaft. I let it sit in my hair for 15 to 20 minutes and after rinsing, my hair was super soft. It rinsed clean and left behind a pleasant scent.
When I get lazy about deep conditioning and my hair begins to feel dry, I need a product to get my hair back into shape in a hurry, and this is one treatment that will do that. Don't get lazy about conditioning, however -- the more consistent you are with a routine, the less likely it is you'll need emergency care to repair damage or breakage. When working it through your hair, make sure your ends are completely covered, as this will protect against the dryness that so often affects this part of the hair.
