So, it's been a little over a month, and I thought I'd provide an update on my experience with this system.

The first three weeks or so were GREAT. My hair was smooth, manageable and frizz-free. The last few weeks? Not as great. I don't know if it's because I've been running low on conditioner and thus not using as much, or if this stuff wears off too fast, or if it's simply not match for D.C. humidity, but it doesn't look so hot anymore.

My hair feels dry and a little damaged. I'm not loving the Amino Fusion quite as much, and really it's just reinforcing the reality that there's no good way of changing your hair texture. Recommended if you can get it cheaply, but at $350 a pop where I live, this seems like a bit of a rip-off.
