    I guess it has an amazing scent! Just love fruit-filled shampoos :)

    I bought the shampoo, conditioner, and combing cream and have tried them once so far with mixed results.


    The scent is pleasantly fruity and did not linger in my hair (but few fragrances do linger for me).


    The shampoo has a lot of lather and seems moisturizing, but my scalp does not feel as clean as I would prefer.


    The conditioner has much less slip than I was expecting, although it became easier to comb through after leaving it in for the rest of my shower. I rinsed my scalp quite thoroughly but did not try to get it all out of the ends.


    I used 2 pumps of the combing cream and my wet brush slid through reasonably well, but I have had better results with the CJ BeautiCurls both during and after styling.


    Once I had the cream in, it looked like I'd need some hold so I added 2 pea-sized blobs of Suave Mega-Hold Gel, then plopped and air dried.


    My curls were well-defined but elongated and much less "bouncy" unlike the reviewers' experiences. I also think there was more shine overall. My hair felt less moisturized than I like, but not dramatically so. I spent the day wondering how the gel might be affecting the overall results.


    When I took out my usual pineapple this morning, my hair was quite flat and somewhat greasy to the eye and touch, causing immediate resort to a ponytail.


    It is very possible that I need to play around with the line and its individual components to see if there is a combination that works well. I will experiment, but my initial response is that I'm likely to stick with my GVPCB and CJ products.


    Hope this was helpful!
