It very much does. I use a very generous amount of conditioner. less shampoo which is a better technique to washing hair. The process of detangling afterwards is a breeze and less pull to the hair. Also leaves your hair smelling wonderful. I actually really love this product. and if you get the Sunday papers they usually have coupons for this product and then a sale at CVS to get them at a very affordable price. I have a good stock in my house.
