This is a review in progress:

I used this as a deep conditioner with heat. I did not expect this conditioner to have slip, much less be moisturising. Boy, was I surprised! Before I give my final conclusion, I want to try this one more time.

    I love it! The smoothie really softens my very dry hair. It is a staple product that I use especially in the winter.

    kolochita, I noticed in your siggie that you use Schwarzkopf Oil Nutritive Conditioner. I use the Oil Nutritive mask and shampoo. Love them both!

    Yes, I love that conditioner :) the scent is one of my favorites! I was curious about the Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie because I'm looking for a deep conditioner/mask/treatment and that one caught my eye...
