Best Answer: I have been using this for at least four years now, and my husband is also addicted. My grown daughter also loves it. None of us use related shampoo product, brand-wise, and all of us use this as our regular conditioner, not in the 'recovery pak' way for which it is, I guess, intended. A tiny bit goes a long way. And I just use it on ends of my hair and ends of shorter layers.
