Packaging: It comes in a tub with a twist-off cap. The tub has a very wide opening so you can get everything out of it. 🙂 It has a clear bottom which I found interesting. The labeling looks like other Profectiv Mega Growth products (orange and yellow).

Uses: I use this as a protein conditioner to layer on my ends, edges, and nape. I’ve also used it as a protein treatment. I considered it a light to medium protein treatment because of how my hair behaves after using it. Also, the proteins are further down the ingredient list (highlighted in red).

My Take: I’ve had this conditioner for over a year and it’s just finishing now. I like that it has some great oils and butters (shea, avocado, argan, coconut). When I used it the first time, I noticed some strengthening. However, in recent times, I haven’t noticed too much of a difference. It makes my hair feel soft but the softness doesn’t last long. My hair also feels heavy (weighed down) but not coated. It does have mineral oil and petrolatum but my hair doesn’t always mind mineral oil in conditioners. The mineral oil is the second ingredient and petrolatum is the third ingredient so it may affect you. I’m not all that impressed with this. I prefer Aphogee products for my protein needs.

Would I purchase again? No. It is just okay and not spectacular in my opinion.

Have you tried this conditioner?
