Burt's Bees Hair Repair Shea & Grapefruit Deep Conditioner

Last time I went to buy a refill on conditioner, I only thought I was, but when I got home, realized I actually bought shampoo. So instead of turning around to buy conditioner like I meant to, I instead decided to stretch the little conditioner that I had left as far as I could.

And my hair did not like that.

So when I finally did go to buy more, this tube of Burt's Bees caught my eye. I liked that it was a '2 minute' deep conditioner as opposed to 10 min or more because it's short enough that I don't have to step out to of the shower or wait forever for the full effect (yeah, 10 min = forever).

I guess, to get straight to the point, I LIKE this product, I don't LOVE it. It made my hair feel stronger but not necessarily more soft or moisturized. But I feel like at the core, it did work. And often times the 'smooth soft' feel of conditioners is only surface level anyway. Whereas this product seems to work more like a keratin treatment...stronger hair, as opposed to silkier hair. And my hair has been breaking off like crazy since going blonde a year ago...I'm going through hair rehab at the moment since dying it back to black again.

As to be expected with Burt's products, this has a very simple and shameless ingredient list full of botanical extracts with natural hair repair abilities...and in total is over 98% natural.

It's not cheap, as you only get 5oz of product but it's not ridiculously expensive either at a little under $7 at Target. I only wash my hair once or twice a week so this will last me over a month.

The texture is rich, thick and creamy like Greek yogurt. So a little goes a long way.

This was my hair beforehand...actually, this picture is deceiving because it looks soft and moisturized. It wasn't. And you can sort of see heat damage in a few straight strands that won't curl anymore. I'm thinking I need another hair cut soon...

And this was my hair actually the next day (I forgot to take a picture of the result the day I conditioned...oops). But it was basically the same, just a bit softer and more defined. 

I'll definitely continue to use this product until I run out, but I don't know if I'd necessarily repurchase. I also think that may be because my hair is so damaged that it may just be damaged beyond repair...that if you use this product on undyed undamaged hair the results would be far better I'm sure! Overall, I do like it. If you're looking for high slip detangling ability this isn't for you. If you're looking for strength from the inside out, then I recommend!
