    Kaymore, I've not tried it but I was tempted to give it a try when I was in Walgreen's last week.

    Do you know if Walgreen's still has it on sale?

    I am not sure if the esencia is still on sale...but it says that samy products are buy one---get one free this week. So, I would try to persuade the cashier that the product was on sale---because it only excludes the Big Hair Samy line. Also, garnier fructis is 99 cents this week with a coupon. But I don't really use garnier that much anymore.

    So how do you like it? I saw it in the store today with a free rebate. The white lotus smells wonderful. It reminds me of Bath & Bodyworks' White Tea & Ginger lotion.

    I saw the sale as well as I bought the hyrdating conditioner. I think it was the one with the orange writing on the bottle. I used it to co-wash and it smelled awesome, but I must say that it did nothing for me. I ended up using my HE HH to finish my co-wash. My hair just didn't respond to it at all. :sad7: But maybe you will have better luck than I did.

    I'm cosigning on the "it did nothing." I had high hopes too. I'm always looking for something I can buy in the drugstore! I used GVPCB after I rinsed it out.

    **bump**

    i originally said i didn't like this product much because of the strong scent. however, i pulled it from the back of the shelves and used it as a leave-in (since i didn't get in on the kbb sale). this worked fab as a leave-in! absolutely loved it.

    the scent was white lotus, barley & nettle. i will definitely buy more.
    LOIS (OS); cottony, TYPE 4 hair, fine/med strands; no cones bcz my hair hates them; last relaxer '98; now low porosity:?, ignores most natural hair rules; BC #8

    faves: suave, v05 shampoo, conditioner (my own), raw shea butter, castor oil, peanut oil, aloe juice
