this product is amazing and definitely worth the money. it lasts a long time and u only need abt a penny size for medium to long hair. it make hair shinier, controls frizz, is a heat protectant and to be use after styling to give a glossy smooth finish, and it also repairs the hair. this product does contain silicon to help tame the hair and it smells amazing. it makes dry ends softer but it will not repair split ends just make it less visible.
