My review:

I have DC'd with this product aout 3 times. It has a citrusy smell, but does not linger after washing it off. It's consistency is not runny but it is abit light in texture. One of the cons with this product is that It comes in a bottle which makes it hard to apply to your hair.

As the ingredients show, it does have a collagen relatively high up in the list. However, I would rank this as a light protein treatment.

On its own, I do not feel that it does an awesome job, so I usually have to help it by adding some oils to it or mixing it with a moisturizing deep conditioner.

However, I will buy this treatment again, because:

1) It is one of those protein treatments that do not leave your hair feeling straw-like. My bottle is about halfway now, so I suppose you could get up to 6 uses, which is good for its price.

2) It contains some good moisturizing agents such as glycerin

Regarding the "stimulates the roots of your hair" promise, I do not know how/ if it does that, and in any case I usually steer away from applying conditioners to my scalp.

My rating: 3.5 (good with other products but not on its own)

Rating scale:

1/5 - Never again!
2/5 - Below par, not for my hair
3/5 - mehh, might try it again to be sure its really not good
4/5 - like it, good buy
5/5 - when am i going to buy the next one!! need to stock up for dayzzz
