            I have thick, coarse, wavy , and color treated over processed hair ..... so I tend to use a lot of leave ins and things that will restore and repair all the damage. This product has an awful smell and has a weird texture for being a leave in. It also dries leaving a residue and I saw no results after using this product. I believe it is over priced due to the brand name and the quality of the product is lacking.

                    I purchased this product when it was on sale during Ultas annual hair care sale, and I am so glad I gave it a try! My hair is over processed from being colored/bleached and flat iron and with just one use of this lotion, my hair felt like new! It literally felt like a different persons hair, I couldn't stop touching it! I can't say enough about this stuff, I was truly amazed by the results, and a little goes a long way. Although this product is on the expensive side, I will definitely be re-purchasing!

                          A:

                          Fresh Cut is meant for all hair types and specifically targeted to sealing ends. Restore Instant Repair is recommended for dry/damaged hair. It provides richer conditioning that targets damage sites from root to tip and helps prevent future breakage.
