    I've used the conditioner -- it's wonderful -- it's light but moisturizes well for me (3b/fine/lots of hair). It doesn't weigh my hair down, gives me great curl definition and has great slip. The smell is very light, grapefruit. :)

    I haven't used the matching shampoo though.

    Looking to try Devacurl Decadence line next! Can't wait to try it.

    I use this as well and I agree, it is great, my hair is fine but I have lots of it even though it is short. I use this conditioner and it does not weigh my hair down, nor pull out the curl.

    AHA thank you Hockeymom...I had been trying to place the smell of the conditioner since I bought it! I thought for a minute it smelled like lemon custard, but grapefruit makes more sense! Thank you, that was driving me nuts! ;)

    I just tried the Shampoo & Conditioner. The shampoo was worse than any sulfate. It left my hair feeling stripped and VERY tangled. It didn't even feel like my hair. Usually conditioner will bring the life back to my hair but this was not the case. I'm going to see if I can get my money back. I can't take that experience again.

    I use and like the conditioner. I had been using AOHR, but ran out and instead of getting another bottle, although it worked great, I decided to try something new. The Giovanni Smooth as Silk is very nice--light enough not to weigh my curls down, but rich enough to feel creamy and soak into my hair. I don't need to use a lot either, which is nice. I think it may become a summer staple.
