The smell is a bit odd. Sort of “wooden” and a bit sweet.
One thing that that weirded me out a bit was that the foam is slightly brown and not the white that you’re used to see in the drain. It doesn’t colour the hair though and the brown disappeared quickly. The other thing that weirded me out was that is has a “texture”. It’s hard to describe. Somehow it just felt different than other conditioners. I guess it’s like trying to describe how cotton feels different than wool.
Of course the pack was too small to sufficiently cover my knee length hair, but I concentrated it on the ends and supplemented with some Schwarzkopf leftovers for the top. I wrapped it up in the Sexysmurf and gave it about an hour of heat.
It was nice and easy to rinse out.
I was a bit worried about the protein content since I have coarse hair and need to be a bit careful with my protein. It didn’t turn out to be a problem. It didn’t seem that my hair reacted to the protein in any negative way. My hair feels strong and moisturised at the same time. It has that “feel” like after a cassia treatment where it just feels stronger.
In fact, after I had towel dried and braided it, it did that “sliding” thing where water just slides down the length and the tassel ended up dripping wet and it was practically completely dry from the shoulders and up. That seems to be the sign of a thorough conditioning, so I’m very pleased.
When my hair needs a conditioning, it “holds” the moisture for longer and doesn’t dry as quickly on the top.
All in all, I think it’s a great product with a very nice effect. However, I would be a bit cautious and not use it too often because of the protein content.
