Verdict: I love this conditioner. I initially was reluctant to purchase a protein conditioner because they haven't worked too well for me in the past. Products containing protein are generally a big no no for my hair. Let me tell you, this conditioner is dope. It didn't leave my hair crispy like most protein conditioners. Surprisingly it left my tresses soft and supple, which is not what you normally expect from a protein conditioner, right? It smells divine, the texture is light and fluffy, and a little goes a long way. I've used this as a deep conditioner, moisturiser and a leave-in. The ingredients are great, what more could you ask for, right? Well, if I'm honest, a longer shelf life would be great. The shelf-life is 6-9 months which is great if my product was coming direct but it's not. I get mine through a british supplier  and I lose time off the already short shelf life. I guess shelf life is a sacrifice which comes with natural products. The price isn't too bad, the sample size is £1.75 and the full size is £9.95 for 16oz on Curly Emporium. I wanted to purchase the full size but it's been out of stock for a while, *fingers crossed* it comes back soon. In the mean time I'll probably have to find an alternative. All and all this is a great light protein and I would recommend it. Will I be purchasing again? Yes! Taking the shelf life and price into consideration, I give this product a 4/5.
