"I have very long think hair and put color slash high-light''s between 3 to five months just depending on the time of year, I take medicine also and have some medical issues which causes me to have problems with me hair, i take medicine for my hair, vitamins, and I have tried all kinds shampoo''s and conditions. This shampoo I dont even need a condition and the pump on it is large and easy to use with my hands. After I wash it all I have to use then while it is wet before I pick it out n blow dry it is the step down lighter spray in conditioner all over. The combination of the 2 is the best thing since peanut putter. And the large size bottle last a good while. Cant say that about the spray in conditioner I use it non-stop when I wash & when I don''t & I wish it had a much larger bottle and a better spray bump. Cause if you get it on your hands you can''t spray it n sometimes it gets stuck but I still would not give it up!"
