Dec 29, 2013 - I originally purchased this to use as a leave-in some years ago and when that didn't work out, I finished up the jar as a deep conditioner. Sometimes it would leave my hair hydrated and springy, sometimes tangly and coated. The reason I am giving this conditioner five stars is that it started working amazingly for me once I figured out my hair type: FINE, LOW POROSITY. Difficult to get moisture in the cuticles and prone to buildup from heavy products. With my hair type, I cannot apply moisturizing products to wet hair and have them absorb. That goes for deep conditioners and leave-ins. My hair has to be damp. I now deep conditioner with this on freshly washed hair that has been t-shirt dried or dried by twirling and squeezing, no towels involved. A little goes a long way so I don't need to take globs out of the jar. I then spritz my hair with warm/hot water after the first application to help it absorb, t-shirt or squeeze dry again, and apply a second layer to fully saturate my hair. I then pin up the sections and let the deep conditioner sit for 5-10 minutes. This conditioner has been leaving my hair soft, hydrated, pliable and with a healthy shine. Simply amazing! I continue to follow this routine of applying to damp hair and not leaving it on too long and I've gotten comments on how much healthier, moisturized and darker my hair looks. ETA: I prefer the Gardenia Coconut scent because it is less sweet.
