My review: I used this deep conditioner on my last wash day (3 weeks ago), and I applied it to half of my hair and used a different conditioner on the other half (will share it later). I was actually looking to buy the Humecto Keracare conditioner, and bought this one by mistake (the bottles look so alike)!

What I liked
The slip: If there is a product that has slip which is bordering on slimyness, it is this one! It has a very slippery feel that is almost off-putting if you don't like slimy stuff. However, this really helps because my hair was soft and smooth once I rinsed this conditioner out. It was very easy to detangle my hair after using this conditioner.

The penetration: This conditioner almost disappeared once I applied it to my hair - a sure sign that it penetrated very well.

The results: My hair came out very soft and moisturized after rinsing the conditioner out. I loved how my hair felt, and detangling was a breeze, even with all the new hair growth I had.

What I did not like
Slippery Consistency: It is quite slippery as I mentioned, and so some of the conditioner kept slipping off my hands as I tried to apply it. However, I have learnt over the past few months that my hair absorbs conditioners that are not thick in consistency, so I give it a plus for its light consistency.

Ingredients: I realised once I got home, that this product has some mineral oil :-( Sad, sad face. It also has a lot of other chemicals that I have not see in other conditioners - I think this is because of it's colour-protecting properties. So if you are a naturalista through and through, then this product is not for you.

Overall I liked this product because of its slip. Due to the not so friendly ingredients, I can only give it a 3/5. I will not be keeping this conditioner in my regimen because of the ingredients, but I will definitely look out for the Humecto Conditioner once I finish this one.
