Jul 30, 2012 - I think I have 4b hair, not sure. After using the Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo I used the conditioner. I was able to run my fingers through my hair with the conditioner in it and I didn't spend too much time detangling. I twisted my hair with the conditioner in and added more to all my twists and put on a plastic cap for an hour. MY hair was so shiny with then conditioner in and it felt soft. I rinsed the conditioner out and my hair felt very soft. I used to use the V05 conditioners and my hair felt alright but not the same as the Giovanni. I love Giovanni. If it wasn't so expensive I would use it to co-wash my hair. I won't be switching to another conditioner. The next day when my hair dried my hair was shiny and kind of dry. Even my mom thought my hair was softer and shinier, compared with the V05 :) And I just deep conditioned my hair for an hour. I wonder what 2 hours could do. Or using their leave in.
