I want to first start off by saying that I do not have the hair type that this product is suited for. It is for coarse, dry or thick hair. I have fine limp straight hair. It does weigh my hair down of I use too much of it or try to use as a leave in. I found that of I only use it on my ends and use before straightening my hair that it works great. I wont buy this again since I cant use it to its fullest potential but it is a great product.
