Default L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner: Ceramides

Has anyone tried this? What are your thoughts?
I bought a bottle at Rite Aid for $1.99 with a coupon so it will become shaving cream if my hair doesn't get along with it, haha! I know it has amodimethicone, but I think I remember reading that it's not prone to building up and that it's water soluble. I'd love to hear from you!

INGREDIENTS:

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Amodimethicone, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Behentrimonium Chloride, Fragrance, Dipropylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Tideceth 6, Hydroxypropyl Guar, Potassium Hydroxide, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Arginine, Glutamic Acid, Benzyl Salicylate, Serine, Cetrimonium Chloride, Benzyl Alcohol, Limonene, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Amyl Cinnamal, Citronellol, 2 Oleamido 1,3 Octadecanediol, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, FIL D54574/1

I've been using this for 5 weeks and I like it! I am also using the Advanced Care shampoo for color treated hair. It has sulphates but I'm ok with that.. I recently had to clarify because my hair seemed a bit weighed down. I'm happy for the moment!

Yay, thank you for your feedback! Tomorrow is a wash day and I plan on giving it a whirl then. If my hair still feels dry after I rinse it out, I'll just use my trusty CJ conditioner

It seems like our hair types are very similar-hope it works well for you!

Thanks for the encouragement, okyouwin!

Today I cleansed with L'oreal's Evercurl Cleansing Creme (the one in the blue bottle & which I also really need to thank Myrna for bringing it to my attention) then conditioned with my new L'oreal conditioner. I'm impressed with it so far. It has great slip and a nice smooth and creamy texture.

I did everything else the exact same way as I normally do so I'll be able to tell if my hair feels any differently in the next couple of days.

It's ok, I only bought it bc someone recommended that it has ceramides which is great for high porosity. I think I'll get better results when the dew points are slightly higher.
