        This stuff is like gold! I put it in wet hair before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my hair looks fantastic! Most of the time I just finger brush it and I'm done! I've noticed it has made a difference in breakage as well!

                      I really wanted to love this, but I will be returning. I have medium length, colored, thin blonde hair. After all the amazing reviews, I had to buy this. I hate it! It did absolutely nothing for my hair! The following morning my hair was very dry, and hard to comb.

                        I not only use this product overnight, as directed, but I also use it to calm frizzies and it seems to somehow add a little body to my hair on day two when it tends to be a little limp. I always get compliments on my hair when I use this product.

                        I have recently had my hair bleached every 6 weeks for about 4 months. It has really taken a toll on my hair. I was so used to it being soft and shiny and frantically started searching for something to bring back the softness I had lost.
                        After salon visit number 3 I was given a tube of this as a free sample. Oh my God after just one use my hair felt and looked amazing! I had to go buy a bigger bottle as soon as I could and haven't stopped using it since!!

                          My hairdresser says that night cap helps your hair grow longer, because it protects the ends and you don't need to cut it as often. Does it have this effect?

                            Night Cap Overnight Perfector is conditioning therefore it can be helpful for dry ends, which can lead to split ends. If you are looking for a product that helps repair dry, damaged hair and you want to prevent split ends I recommend using Restore Instant Repair.

                            Yes, you can layer the products! It is preference on how you use the treatment. As it is a conditioning treatment leaving it in for a longer period of time can have great outcomes and is not harmful to the hair!
