Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship Leave-In Split End Mender

This leave-in was on my wish list for FOREVER!! But everywhere I would go it always seem to be sold out.  And my stupid Rite Aide does NOT have it. They like to stock more expenive things.

But over Christmas break I grabbed it as soon as I saw it.

It's Claims:

With a fusion of red rasberry & satin. Live in the length of luxury. This is the beautiful beginning of the ends. Smooth them with a kiss of protective conditioning that strengthens your hair against split ends and breakage. I'll help keep your hair from splittsville with my quenching formula fused with extracts of red raspberry & satin. I'm a tip treat with a silky finish that feels so good.

I wish I hadn't been in such a hurry to buy it. I don't know what is up with Herbal Essences and their use of dyes. I mean the bottle can be red, but does the product really have to be red?

So it smells OK, but in my opinion the smell gets kinda boring after awhile.  And my hair doesn't feel as soft and moisturized as with other leave-ins but it does have a strange satiny type texture.  The only way it keeps my end soft is for me to apply it once while my hair is wet and then again when my hair is dry.

Ingredients
Water, Stearyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Rubus Daelis (Raspberry) Juice, Hydrolyzed Silk, Dimethicone Glutamic Acid, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Propylene Glycol, DMDM Hydantoin, Red 33.

Ingredients Leave alot to be desired.

So, my final say, I don't recommend it. I don't know though, Herbal Essences just doesn't really excite my hair.
