I got a full-sized bottle of this leave-in conditioner by filling out a form on the company’s website. I was disappointed in the unnecessarily huge box they used to ship this product but whatever.
Anyway, here are the claims of the “multiple benefits” of this product’s use: 1. adds instant softness and slip; 2. helps gently detangle fragile, wet hair; 3. enhances hair’s elasticity; 4. delivers heat-protection; 5. helps reduce friction during brushing and combing; 6. helps fortify hair to prevent breakage; 7. controls frizz, static and flyaways; 8. helps prevent split ends; 9. can be used alone or as a foundation for styling; 10. lightweight results without residue or dulling coating.
Let’s see how well this product delivered on it’s claims. First, I’ll tell you how I used it. I pre-poo’d my hair with Jarrow’s Formula coconut oil (purchased from Whole Foods). I shampooed and conditioned my hair with Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship. I also protein treated my hair with Joico K-Pak Reconstructor (review here). I used the Mizani D’tangle as a leave-in/heat-protector prior to blow-drying. I flat-ironed with my FHI and I also used Tresemme Heat Tamer spray for that final step.
D’tangle has a light, pleasant scent. As promised, my hair did not feel coated and there was no dulling to my shine. This is surprising because the formula is not clear; it’s a milky white. Combing through was no problem and my hair did not feel sticky, as some heat protectors tend to do. I was very satisfied with my post-blowdry results: soft, silky, managable hair.
FYI: my last relaxer was on May 27th using PCJ Pretty and Silky No-Lye Relaxer (Regular).
