I actually like this conditioner as a deep conditioner. It is a creamy lotion with an herbal/essential oil scent. It detangles well. My hair did not feel moisturized when I was applying it, but after sitting under the heating cap, it softened up quite a bit. Upon rinsing it out, my hair felt moisturized but not soft. It is intended as a 2-3 minute rinse out but I don't think it will work that way for my hair. I have enough left for another application to use under a steamer and try as a leave-n.
Overall this is a very nice conditioner with nice slip and detangling properties.
