Sep 23, 2011 - I just used this mask after shampooing with its corresponded shampoo. It was my first time using it. I also did a overnight pre-shampoo treat. with Darcys coconut oil. First impressions: The smell is not good but not terrible. It's thick and it looked creamy until I put it in my hair. It felt waxy, had no slip at all. I had to carefully apply it in sections on a hair that look puffy, tangled and dry, while still wet ( I still don't know if blame the shampoo or the coconut oil). It did feel it needed some heat to melt it away. I put a plastic cap for 30 min and it did look softer but still weird, like the hair got heavier and thickier. There was no way I could detangle like that. I rinsed for quite a while and applied my CK Smoothing Cond. which made it much softer. It wasn't hard to detangle with it, as always. Hair is still drying, but so far it looks good. I'll post another review later. So the 2 starts are basically for application feel.
