This is the type of conditioner that I would use bi-weekly. Why, you ask? Simple. In order to have healthy hair, you have to maintain a healthy balance of protein and moisture. The best way to do this (besides getting intensive protein treatments every 6-8 weeks) is to use products in your hair regimen that contain hydrolyzed protein/keratin. This is one of those products. This conditioner is a cheaper yet effective alternative to the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Ginger line! The Awapuhi Ginger extract is meant to “instantly mend and soften dry coarse hair while stimulating the scalp with freshness, [while the] rich keratin proteins fortify each strain creating restored, soft, strengthened hair from the inside out.” While I can’t agree that it softens hair SO MUCH, it certainly strengthens my hair. The reason it doesn’t soften the hair that much, is because of the keratin/protein that this product contains. Protein doesn’t soften hair, it strengthens it. For that reason, I would follow up with a moisturizing deep conditioner! Also, not a fan of the silicones that Organix products contain, but a good clarifying shampoo will wash them right out!
I purchased this conditioner at Walgreens for $5 for 13 fl oz.

HOW I USED IT
I use this like any other conditioner–after shampooing my hair, I apply a liberal amount of this conditioner to my hair, use a wide tooth comb (or my fingers) to detangle and ensure equal distribution, wait 3-5 minutes, and then rinse!
