I’ve been itching to do this review, but I didn’t want to jump the gun. Now, I’m happy I waited!
I received a trial size of this conditioner from Jane Carter a few weeks ago (Thank you!!!). I’ve been using it as a Deep Conditioning Treatment in combination with Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose. It smells great, provides amazing slip and made my hair VERY soft! I loved the results so much, that I decided to go out and purchase a full size bottle…despite the protein content.
Everynow and then, I get an urge to experiment with protein (for strength and such), and since it was so far down on the ingredient list, I thought my hair could handle it. Needless to say, 2 weeks, and 3 DTs later, my hair is dry as the desert. Initially it made my hair very soft and silky… but now I’m suffering from brittle, dry, rigid ends. I’m going to see if Vitamin Shoppe will let me return it.
Bottom line: If you can handle protein, the slip and moisture this conditioner provides is top notch. If you’re protein sensitive like me, this is NOT for you. Your results may be positive at first, but the consequences of your actions will show in time. I will not be repurchasing this one.
Product Description: This product does just what is says…it replenishes. It works especially well when used with heat, leaving your hair in better condition than ever before. There is nothing better than soft, shiny, healthy hair. Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner contains ingredients that permanently bond to your hair’s cortex, leaving it stronger and with better elasticity. Once in awhile, you come across a product that is truly “the best,” and this conditioner is certainly one of those rare commodities!
