This was one of the products I purchased when I bought up a bunch of John Frieda products for my hair. I was looking for something to help take care of the damage, add some extra shine and also help maintain a natural brunette color. I bought it in the espresso color, for darker shades of brown hair. I am very happy with this hair care line, the results were fantastic. The only thing I really didn't care for was how small the hole is in the top of the cap. You have to squeeze like crazy to get it to come out, making it difficult to hold on to in the shower. Other than that I give this conditioner an A+! My hair has never looked or felt better. I must say, because of using this conditioner, I also feel that my hair has encountered a lot less damage as well. I can run a comb or brush through it much easier and not worry about my hair breaking! Effectiveness The brilliant brunette conditioner has wonderful effects. It restores you color and shine, adds moisture and shine. It is a great product and I recommend this to all brunettes (Male or Female) Scent The scent is great, very clean. Not too feminine, so men can use it on their brown hair as well.
