I agree that you should get a sample. Pictures won't tell you what it will/won't do for your hair. You're going to have to try it.
It was very worth it for my hair. I was on the fence about it too, but I finally justified the price when I saw how fast it was swapped on the swap board. I figured if I hated it, someone else would want it. Instead, I now grab it as fast as I can when I see it on the board.
It is my favorite product!
