I have longish highlighted coarse curly hair that I try to only wash once weekly. I used a sample I received in store of this mask and was completely impressed with the results! It seemed to correct my split ends to the point people asked me if I had gotten a hair cut. My hair is glossy and almost silky – and my hair is never even close to soft! I will say my ability to hold curl isn\’t as defined since using this mask a few days ago but the trade off for hair that I actually want to run my fingers through is worth it! Will definitely be investing in the full size when it comes back in stock!
