I have struggled with my hair for 21 years. But after using this, my scalp is not itchy, my hair is not only soft but shinny! Like in commercials. This (and everyday brushing) actually makes "doing my hair" enjoyable I'm like crying writing this. The scent is definitely an overpowering peppermint/lavender smell but washes out when you wash the mask off. I have long thick hair so one pack gives me about 4 washes. Way easier to apply and smoother but the best I can compare it to is Raw Sugar's bounce back conditioner. Okay talking about it is making me want to use it again. brb.
