I purchased this product because of the great reviews. I am somewhat disappointed and most likely will not purchase this again. I much preferred a Kerastase product that is now discontinued. This is suppose to be better and it is definitely more expensive, yet I am unimpressed in the results. I now use it the night prior to washing my hair. I also use it the night before having my hair professionally colored. I love the Bain Chroma Riche and Masque Chroma Captive for washing and conditioning - fantastic products that really help retain the color and create amazing shine. Nectar Thermique is fantastic for heat protection and does an excellent job smoothing my hair. Those three products have been wonderful as my hair feels soft and healthy.
