Let me give you some back-story to my hair.
Naturally, I have semi-wavy relatively thick ash blond hair. For the last 5 years, it has been made from virgin hair into, well... a you-know-what. :D
I dyed it black for about four years, and that didn't do much damage but added a lot of pigment to it. I also straightened it/blow dried it on a fairly regular basis and I wasn't using very good shampoo until the last year or two of those 4. Late into the fourth year, after mulling over the idea for months (maybe a year) I confronted my fear of my hair falling out and bleached my hair. As expected, it turned into a dark red0brown which lead to me bleaching it again. Four bleachings later, I had brassy-gold hair; light enough to dye over it with my color of choice, purple. I rocked the purple for a few months before lightening again (not straight bleach but a bleach kit which I know is still bad for your hair) then I went red. I figured it would never come out blond enough to wear AS a blond so I kept dying it different colors. I wore the red (neon cherry red) until it faded into a hot pink and bleached again, which unexpectedly turned my hair an almost white color. Unprepared, I hadn't bought toner or blond hair care products, so after 3 days or so of the blond I dyed it teal and let it fade to blue, then let it fade into green before lightening it once more. Between each bleaching was anywhere from 1-3 months since about October 2010. I had past-shoulder length hair and the start and have cut it into a choppy bob that I let grow out and cut back to short as needed to get rid of as much dead dry ends as possible. All of that aside, my regular hair care regimen wasn't working as well as it could have been, so I decided to try this. My dyed bleached hair has the texture of an old Barbie doll's and is in one of the worst states it's been in. (However, when I bleached it the second time when my hair was long, my hair was literally like elastic and would stretch and break off with horrific ease. Hence, the cut. Which I don't mind.)
It's a 10 came in the mail today and I immediately opened it up and tested it on my hair. I felt my hair before for testing purposes (it looked soft thanks to cheap products that COAT the hair, but felt like hay and steel wool). After applying the product, I then felt it after I combed It's a 10 through my hair. Obviously, this thing is not an instant miracle worker, but the way my skin glided over my hair with minimal resistance, kinks,, or harsh ridges/bumps was amazing.Yes, you can still tell it's severely damaged on contact, but the improvement in one use from how it was before is pretty impressive to me. I do believe that if I continue to use this product on a regular basis, it'll really help to make my hair softer and more manageable (to the best it can be. Nothing can fully restore your hair once it's been abused, but some products help a LOT and I'm certain this will be one of them!)
I usually like to play around with a product for at least - LEAST - a few days, or even up to a few months before reviewing but the result I had from this was pretty outstanding and I thought I would share my $0.02
It's a thicker spray texture. Not goopy or sticky, but thick and creamy - very moisturizing. It smells good, like salon products and has a pretty generous amount in the container (I got the 10ozer.) I spritzed it over my hair, focusing on the ends/driest parts and brushed it through, and within seconds had shinier, softer hair. It also made my hands softer after touching my hair. I really recommend trying this! If you're curious and don't want to dish out full price, get the 2ozer or see if your local beauty supply/salon that carries this will give you a sample! I don't think I can be without this now after ONE use!
