John Frieda makes awesome products and this one is my favorite! I have thin hair and was worried about this being too heavy and causing my hair to look heavy and lifeless, but it did just the opposite. I wanted a product that would help repair my hair from everyday heat styling and also repair some damage that I already had. This product worked great! It really lathered up well and made my hair feel really clean. My hair was so soft and manageable. It took the frizz out and made my hair look very healthy and even added a bit of shine. It was not heavy on my hair at all. I only use this a few times a week so my hair doesn't get used to it. It is a little expensive but you can usually find a good coupon in the Sunday newspaper. It is worth the extra cost! Effectiveness This product really gives your hair the added moisture it needs when it is damaged from everyday styling. Scent I love the scent, it really stays with your hair all day.
