I didn't notice a significant difference between this filter and my original filter. I think the long lasting aspect is great but the taste is the same. I suppose in the long run it will save me money.
If I was on a deserted island and could only bring one thing I would bring this spray. It makes me genuinely happy. It makes my hair look incredible. It smells wonderful. It can be brushed out easily if you use too much. I love it more than I love some people I know. I always purchase a new before I run out of my current bottle. I tell everyone I meet about it. I tell strangers about it. I want to write Oribe love letters about this spray. Life changing.
