Default Rave for another Activate product, Hydrating Conditioner(CG)

Can I say wow! It gave me great slip. I was very impressed. It performed as well as the Jessicurl Too Shea!, maybe even better(sorry Jessicurl if you are reading ). The only drawback is the smell, which is kind of fruity like the shampoo, but the condish had an uderlying musty smell Not sure if I just got a bad bottle or if they are all that way. I am going to check next time I hit Rite Aid. It's texture is kinda creamy, not as much as One C but more than Suave or VO5. It is a good price, $6.99(US) for a 12 oz bottle. This may very well be my newest HG. I am going to be using exclusively since it is my only condish(I use Suave or VO5 or White Rain for CO washing), and will update when the bottle is empty to see if my feelings on it has changed. I am so excited, I just got out of the shower and couldn't wait to review this stuff I like it so much! I am not sure I am leaving out any information, so ask away if you need to

Can't wait to hear how you like it when you're done! I saw this over the weekend, and was very tempted to get it, but ended up ordering Eulecense instead. Glad you like it so far!!

Default buy it from the site

you can also buy it from their website. Did you use some as a leave in? It looks (ingredients) and it sounds like a good product for a good price. I like bargins sorry my inner pj wants to come out to play even the shampoo looks cg friendly… oh no pj wants to go to ulta tomorrow lol. Oh well must wait short on the mula. Oh by the by internetchick I ordered some of the amenta shampoo and condish online. Shall be using that first then I’m going for this stuff esp. since I can buy it local and not pay extra for shipping.

I tried the shampoo and like it too Yes it is CG. I have it for the rare occasion I might need a gentle shampoo, though the last time I used it I think was over a month ago. I did use the condish as a leave-in as well. I am going to try the Amenta tomorrow.

I'm tired of livin' in the boonies. I'd have to drive over 50 miles to buy some at a store!

The prices seem really good, but I get so tired of paying s&h.

It has a modified -cone, which makes it CG. I tried it and didn't like it at all.

My PJ turned my truck around, and MADE me go into CVS to buy the Activate condish. Just wondering, is the Behentrimonium Methosulfate bad? I"m ingredients challenged.

I found this link which doesn't lead me to belive it is bad. I am not a guru either though I am on my 2nd bottle of this stuff and still love it, it doesn't build up or dry out my hair and it has the best slip ever!

Thanks! that doesn't look bad to me either. I'm excited to try it, especially since you said you liked it as much or better than too shea.
