Review: I couldn’t start off this review with anything other than the scent – this shampoo and conditioner smells SO DIVINE that you’ll find yourself wishing you could drink it.
I can’t reasonably put down into words how good this product smells. Even after I had showered, I could still catch whiffs of the scent in my hair, and it still smelt amazing. The grapefruit scent is so bitterly sweet in this product, it’s worth the price tag alone. Your senses will thank you.
Now, in terms of the other promises, I will admit that my hair was a teeny bit silkier. Dramatically so, no, but I did see a difference noticeable enough to purchase again. Did it strengthen my hair? I can’t say. I’ve been using it for the better part of a month and I don’t see a difference. Perhaps a longer period of time could make for better results.
My biggest drawback? I have very dry hair in the winter – static is an absolute nightmare! This product did nothing to aide with that – in fact, my hair was so dry, I often had to follow up with a hair masque just to ensure my hair was somewhat manageable throughout the day. If this product provided a wee-bit more moisturization (which we all know, I love), these shampoos and conditioners would be Grade A. Perhaps this shampoo and conditioner is better suited for my hair in the summer!
Final Verdict: I can totally put up with using extra hair masques and leave-in conditioners if I get to use this smell on my hair every day. Completely acceptable compromise!
