Yay! I found a leave-in conditioner that doesn't smell like crap! :)

I wonder how long i have to wait before any positive benefits can be attributed to it rather than just recently having gotten my hair cut. I've never paid attention to exactly how long it takes my hair to fall apart before.

At first I read the initial comment as being about finding an *air conditioner* that didn't smell bad (hey, some in-window units can get stinky if they're old and dirty), and was boggling at how utterly horrendous the air would have to be to make your hair fall apart. >_

I got a leave-in preconditioner for Ben to use. It's like a hot oil treatment, but you don't have to use it in the shower. You get your hair wet and put this stuff on and comb it through. It's gooey. The one I got is from Burt's Bees, the avocado butter pretreatment. Just use it once a week. Ben's hair is less frizzy.

The stuff i got is an after you get out of the shower type thing too, except that it's for every day, at least i think it is, and i think that's how the hair person explained it to me. It comes in a pump bottle and is kind of halfway between a liquid and a gel, maybe a little closer to the liquid side.

Ben's is pre-shower. You get your hair wet in the tub, then put it on for 15 minutes. Unless you don't mind wasting water...

I hear you. My hair is never healthier and more vibrant then right after its cut of course, but then they try to get you to buy a bunch of crap at the salon by convincing you it's the goop they used, and not at all the fact that they just got rid of all your horrible split ends, making your hair look awesome. It's really the cut and the styling, I believe. I stick with pantene, yay target/walmart-ish prices, but definitely have gone through salon-brand phases. What is the conditioner brand, and what's it specialized for?

Yeah, the just cut part is definitely a big part of it, so the question is how well this stuff will hold up over time.

It's a clearish bottle with a short green pump top, and it's some "straightens and conditions" thing. I don't really desire the straightening part, but it doesn't seem to have done much in that regard anyways so that doesn't seem to be a problem. I'll check the brand name thing later if i remember.
