I have higher-density, low-porosity, 2C/3A-ish hair, and this deep conditioner is exactly what my hair needed. After weeks of dry, cold winter air, and terrible wash days that left my hair looking frizzy and undefined, I left this stuff on for about thirty minutes; my hair dried shiny, soft, moisturized, and defined, and not weighed down at all. It was kind of a miracle. Now I deep condition with this every other week and it still works like a charm.
I've used this for years and cannot find a better deep conditioner that is protein-free. (Like many people with bleached highlights, I find that hair products containing protein make my hair brittle.) Wearing a mylar cap or applying heat will make this product work its best. I find there is a sweet spot in terms of time -- if I leave the product on for more than an hour, my hair doesn't do as well as when it's on for 30-60 minutes. Finally, the newer packaging with the pump is a big improvement, but I still miss the jars, which made it easy to get every bit of this great stuff out of the container. The bottles can make that challenging.
I'm Jamaican and Chinese which has landed me with A LOT of hair - combs used to snap when trying to make it through my locks as a child. For several years now I have been having keratin treatment which makes my hair more manageable, but over time I get a protein overload and my hair becomes brittle, dry, and snaps. It's been near impossible to find a nourishing, hydrating conditioner that works for my hair, that isn't packed full of protein. This conditioner has worked wonders for my hair - I'm about to purchase my 4th bottle (just wish they lasted longer!).
Finally, a nice smelling and effective deep conditioner. I have low porosity wavy hair, and most products just sit on the surface. This doesn't. It also smells wonderful--light and fresh. It left my hair with soft, bouncy waves. Wonderful.
This honestly has not done anything for my hair. I have used it 5 times now and have left it on up to an hour with a heat cap. It doesn't even do a good job at detangling my hair. I have gotten better results with my home made hair treatments. Sorry to say but this was a waste of money.
Jessicurl's products are protein free, so if you especially need moisture specifically or struggle with protein overload, this is probably a good treatment for your hair. At first it seemed to help my hair and restore moisture and curl, but after a while my hair health started to regress and look dry again after a few months of using it as a weekly treatment. I followed the directions to a T and haven't changed my routine. The last couple of times I used it, I could NOT get it to rinse out for the life of me. I've rinsed my hair 3 different times AND taken a bath and it's still clinging to my hair. This would probably be great if I had thick, coarse, super curly hair but with my fine wavy hair it looks gross and weighs it down. Weird, because I didn't have this problem when I first started using it and was even able to leave a bit of it in without this waxy residue left behind. They also really need to change their packaging. The product is really, really thick and the tube has a very tiny hole for the product to squeeze out of. It takes both hands to force it out of the tube and there's no way you'll ever get to use all of the product unless you cut the tube open.
It has a nice (not great) citrus smell and it is a good deep conditioner. Worked well with on dry ends but there isn't anything special about it. I sectioned my hair, applied the cream and combed to distribute then added a cap and let it sit for about an hour. I guess if I use it with heat I could get better results but overall it's a good deep treatment with no protein.
This has become a holy grail conditioner for me. Makes my hair amazingly shiny and soft...bought back ups so that I never have to be without it! I usually can't do scented, but this scent is lovely! I use it almost every shampoo, but switch out with another favorite protein mask every once in a while.
