      I love this stuff, have only been using for a week along with another product in this brand and they are amazing. They make my hair feel thicker/fuller, help with frizz and fly away, holds the style well which is hard with natural curly hair. I don't care much for the smell but it is not overwhelming and the benefits outweigh the scent. Highly recommend!

            I dye/bleach my own hair and try to take care of it because I know how much that mistreats it. This product feels great and helps the ends of my hair that have received the most abuse. It feels better and doesn't dry as poofy as it used to. I'm impressed with this product and a little seems to go a long way.

                I have coarse, curly hair that I straighten. This helps with keeping it smooth and minimalizing product damage. I prefer to use it & the no frizz in the summer. I use an different, heavier moisturizing product in winter.

                  I use a pump of this everyday on my hair. It was so dry and frizzy until I started using this product. Not perfect yet but we are getting there. My hair is smoother and doesn't seem as fragile.

                              Restore Instant Repair is formulated for all hair types and textures and is the ideal leave-in treatment to help prevent breakage for longer, stronger hair. Although Restore products are designed to be used as a regimen to repair damaged, weakened hair, you can certainly integrate Restore products individually into your existing regimen.
