My Thoughts: I have used this product off and on for a couple of years now. I have to say that in the past I wasn’t paying much attention to the details of the product. I co-washed my hair, and detangled in the shower as usual. I then applied a dime size amount of product to the five (5) sections of my hair. This product gave me amazing slip! My fingers ran through my wavy/curly hair without a problem, and the product smells like heaven. This is a LEAVE-IN treatment, so I made sure to apply this product first. It’s also a light protein treatment, so all you protein sensitive folks out there should be very careful with this. I then proceeded to add my moisturizer, and sealed with my normal hair oils. I left my hair to air dry and went outside for the day. Five (5) hours later, I can say that there a some portions of my hair that are a bit crunchy. Maybe I didn’t put enough moisturizer on those sections. That would be my only complaint for this product.

Rating: 4 out of 5 COMBS
BONUS: Sally’s Beauty Supply Store carries a generic version of this product called GVP Leave-In Treatment: Compare to Sebastian Potion 9. The 6.8 oz bottle is $5.99 and it’s the exact same product! Go out and grab yourself a bottle!
