How I used the product
I bought this detangler to use on my dry hair to help me detangle before I washed. I also use it lightly after I washed my hair.
I experienced no real improvement in being able to detangle my hair. To the contrary, I experienced excess shedding after the second time I used it. My hair started clumping together while I washed and was coming out in knots. I literally had to cut the shedding hair that was hanging down below the ends of my hair in order to limit breakage.
Since it was the only new product I used, I attribute the shedding to the detangler, but I also recognize that the seasonal change may have been a factor. Granted, I didn't follow the directions exactly but I did also use it on my wet hair after I washed and didn't find that it helped detangle my hair very much. I've also noticed a loss in the bulk of my hair and my hair feels straighter when wet than normal.
I suspect that I may have had a bad reaction to something in the detangler. It didn't occur to me at the time because I went 2 weeks without combing or washing, so I thought the shedding was the accumulation of 2 weeks worth of normal shedding. However, if it were normal shedding, then my hair would not feel less bulky or straighter when wet, which is now does.
This is an example of how what works for one person, may not work for another. I read great reviews on this product melting away tangles and leaving new growth soft and manageable. Unfortunately for me, that was not my experience.
