Sabstion Potion Number 9 has been my go to hair care product for years now. I apply it to my wet hair after I get out of the shower and either let it air dry or blow dry. Either way my hair comes out shiny and healthy looking without being weighed down. My mother had come to visit one day and I had just moved, I couldn't find my conditioner, only the shampoo. After taking a shower and only using shampoo, no conditioner, our hair felt like straw (my hair is tone my waiste). I broke out with the Potion Number 9 and used it on our hair. Immediately our hair was silky soft and ready to be styled. Amazing stuff! I highly recommend it.
