I've been using this conditioner for months. Sometimes with the shampoo and sometimes without, and I absolutely love it for my long dry hair. I've tried to stray away from it but no other conditioner ABSORBS into my hair like this one does. It's seriously a fantastic part of my hair care routine. Plus, the smell is really clean/pleasant, though not very typical. With that said, I do have dry hair, and I only wash my hair every three or four days. I've noticed the shampoo leaves buildup, but I see nothing wrong with the conditioner. The packaging is frustrating but I honestly don't mind screwing off the top, because I love the product inside so much. I've also noticed after a while it becomes easier to squeeze it out. Overall, highly recommended for dry hair.
