This conditioner uses wheat protein and organic aloe to “enhance curls, combats frizz, and boosts shine”. Apparently the wheat protein/aloe mix “expands hair is wet and retracts when dry to enhance curl or wave”. The fragrance is described as a “citrus aroma”, and the conditioner contains certified organic lime, lemon, bergamot and orange among other scents.

I was really disappointed with this conditioner. It didn’t really emphasize my curls any more than other conditioners. It did hardly anything to combat frizz. It made my hair reasonably soft, but really not more than any other conditioner. I guess it didn’t make my hair really brittle or anything so that is something, but I think my hair was not as soft as it was before simply because it wasn’t getting the moisture it needed. It was sad because I really wanted to love this conditioner, because it smelled so darn good. It really reminds me of Rivella, a Swiss soft drink which I LOVE. I think it’s the bergamot in it. Anyway, it left my hair smelling really good, but it wasn’t enough to make me like it. Coupled with the fact that it is so expensive for a conditioner, I was not happy with this product and will not purchase it again.
