Anyone tried it?

Found it for $12.99, and it's normally like $50 bucks. Looks really good, and has Behentrimonium Methosulfate as the second ingredient. Sucky thing is it's been reformulated, so if it rocks, Imma be SOL because the new version switched the ingredients around and cones and proteins are higher up. :(

I'm almost hoping I hate it because of this. LOL!

Old ingredients(bottle I have):

Aqua, behentrimonium methosulfate, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, stearalkonium chloride, ppg-3 benzyl ether myristate, polysorbate 60, wasabia japonica (wasabi) extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel extract, hypnea musciformis extract, gellidiela acerosa extract, sargassum filipendula extract, foeniculum vulgare (fennel) seed extract, saccharomyces lysate ferment, saccharomyces copper ferment, saccharomyces zinc ferment, superoxide dismutase, lactoferrin, daucus carota sativa (carrot) root extract, retinyl palmitate (polypeptide), phospholipids, corn oligosaccharides, copper lysl oxidase, acetyl methionine, acetyl serine, amino acyl trna synthetase, phytosphingosine, ganoderma lucidum (mushroom) tyrosinase, lentinus edodes tyrosinase, algae extract, glycine soja (soybean) seed peroxidase, dimethylcetylamine hempseedate, cannabis sativa hempseed, tocopheryl acetate, panthenyl ethyl ether, linoleamidopropyl pg-dimonium chloride phosphate, pca dimethicone, tocopheryl acetate, papain, bromelain, polysilicone-15, sorbitol, trideceth-12, polyquaterniym-10, silk amino acids, hydrolyzed wheat protein pg-propyl silanetriol, hydroxypropyl guar, pareth-7, c12-16 pareth-9, propylene glycol, citric acid, fd&c yellow 6 (cl 5985) fragrance

    I wish I could say I didn't like it, but I did. I really did. It almost has a seaweedy slip to it, but not super slippery. Now, because my hair has been straight for the past week or so, I'm reserving my final word for when I use it to condition next week, but so far....so good!
