A thing I do really appreciate is that the labels are in opposite directions, so you can stick you conditioner upside down and the label is facing the right way! I've never seen that before and it makes me really happy!
My hair is shinier, stronger, and definitely less frizzy! Plus, I've gotten a lot of comments that my hair smells nice :)
I tend to prefer a very strong shampoo so that my scalp gets really clean- so I was nervous when the shampoo didn't totally strip my hair, but my hair didn't get greasy any faster than it usually does. And surprisingly enough my scalp still felt clean! On top of that it helps keep the lengths and ends of my hair from drying out so much. I can definitely see this being a great shampoo to keep your hair clean without overstripping it especially if you like to wash your hair really often.
The conditioner was a gorgeous texture and does an amazing job at moisturizing without weighing my curls down. It definitely cut down on frizz when I let my hair air dry.
The mask was really special. A little goes a long way and it makes your hair feel very silky and buttery. It also seems to have a bit of golden lustre in it. I couldn't tell if it actually stuck to my hair after rinsing out the mask but I did get a few comments about how shiny my hair was, which is rare as a blonde girl. So the shiny factor may have not been due to moisture and instead the shimmer, but given how healthy the mask made my hair feel, I didn't really mind that potential cheat. I couldn't stop running my hands through my hair each time I used it!
One last thing I really appreciate: the bottles have their nozzles on opposite sides, making it so that you don't confuse your shampoo and conditioner (it's happened to me too many times! curse such similar packaging!)
I will definitely keep using these products because of how nice they make my hair feel and look. I took the one star off because of the scent I can't stand. I don't know if I'll purchase these once I run out due to that one factor, but I am sure that I'll at the very least use up every last drop.
I'd say if you're a curly girl who needs a little sulfate in your shampoo but don't want it to be too drying, you ought to pick up the shampoo and conditioner together (after you give it a whiff!). And if you're already happy with your shampoo and conditioner, you should definitely pick up the mask. It's an amazing quality at a really incredibly reasonable price that has noticeable results.
Shampoo: When I first tried it, I poured a regular sized (my version of bigger than a quarter) amount onto my palm and proceeded with my lathering. When I usually lather, I'm used to a lot of soap suds in my hair; but with the amount I had first poured into my hair I felt it was not enough suds. The shampoo contains what it says OIL and because of the oil, it felt like I had nothing in my hair. As I keep using it I use more product than I would compared to my previous Pantene Pro-V Curls shampoo.
Conditioner: I absolutely LOVE this product!! With bigger than a quarter amount that I pour onto my hand the conditioner does its job! I do not feel the need to apply of lot of conditioner into my hair, its easily to apply and lather around my hair. After rinsing the conditioner and applying my regular styling products of TREsemme Mousse, and Aussie Mega Volume Hairspray, the conditioner's scent remains in my hair the entire day.
Hair Mask: The oil scent is very concentrated and like I mentioned earlier the scent reminds me of a salon/spa. I use it once to two times a week and I leave it on for five minutes. It also leaves a scent lasting all day and hair extremely soft. One day I did not have any time to apply styling products onto my hair, so I just put my hair into bun then let it dry afterwards. I noticed that my hair dried nicely and my curls were extremely soft. The downside to this mask is because it is more concentrated with oil, I find the need to apply a lot of product to condition my entire hair.
