        Comments about Design Essentials HCO Leave-In Conditioner and Blow Drying Lotion:

        I have relaxed hair, and I've been using Design Essentials shampoo and conditioner for years, so I thought this leave-in conditioner would be a nice addition to my hair care regimen. Boy, was I wrong! As soon as I spray this leave in on my hair it instantly became hard. I think the protein in it is just too much for my hair. I can't find the receipt, so now I'm stuck with an item that does not work for me.

          Comments about Design Essentials HCO Leave-In Conditioner and Blow Drying Lotion:

          This product works wonders in my 4a low porosity hair. Because cuticles on my hair strains close tightly I need light creamy or spray leave ins. The panthenol, glycerin and hydrolyzed wheat protein brings and holds moisture into my hair. Love Love Love. As long as the formula stays the same and the price is reasonable, this is a permanent stable in my hair regimen.

            For great blowout results, use this product after clarifying and conditioning. Before you blow dry spray this on to protect against heat and replenish proteins.

              Comments about Design Essentials HCO Leave-In Conditioner and Blow Drying Lotion:

              This is a product staple for me. I have thick, long relaxed hair. I use this spray for styling - to dampen when I blow dry and flat iron. I mainly use this for a daily moisturizer. I spray it on my hands, rub through the length of my hair almost daily. Relaxed hair tends to get dry quickly, but this adds moisture as a moisturizing product and as a wet liquid that lasts without causing my hair to dry later. I've recommended this to my mother who was experiencing extreme dryness and she said that her hair got better with every use.

              Pre blow-dry protection. Perfect conditioning product for a bouncy blowout. Does weigh the hair down.

                I first started using this in hair school. HCO is one of the best products on the market! While it is a leave- in conditioner it doubles as a heat protectant as well. I use this on all of my clients. Most of all it smells great! Design Essentials is a great product line!

                      I'm forever on the search for the ultimate products for my dry, naturally curly hair. This product works wonders when I round-brush blow-dry, and style my hair. The smell is great! Its a nice scent, not overpowering and not chemical-smelling. Leaves my hair noticeably softer and smoother than without this product. However, I did not notice any difference with this product when leaving my hair curly. My hair was still dry and frizzy. I would recommend this (and will continue to purchase and use it) for blow-drying styles.

                          My hair is long, and thick but soft and tangles fast. While most products sit on top, this one penetrates. Blow drying was GREAT which made flat ironing easy. The style also lasts. Thanks

                              For my wet and go style, I use the HCO to tame and detangle my hair. I apply the Compositions Foam, style my hair and go!
                              I love that it doesn't make my hair look dry after it dries. The smell is great!
                              I just wish the products came in bigger bottles.
