My Experience: I ADORE the fragrance– passion fruit and mango. The ingredients are almost the same as the Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie, and thus it produces similar results. It has mediocre slip, but excellent moisture. I’m not a fan of the cyclo cone halfway down the list, or the plethora of other hard to pronounce ingredients.
I used the Smoothie as intended– as a deep conditioning treatment. It went on a bit rough, similar to the BVHS, but in the end, left my hair soft, supple, and full of moisture. This is NOT a detangling conditioner, and if you choose to experiment with this product, I highly rec’ detangling prior to using it.

Bottom Line: Great moisturizing deep conditioner, but at 19 dollars, I probably won’t repurchase.
