Une femme has very fine, thin hair that tends toward oiliness and looks flat and lank one day after shampooing. But daily washing was turning my hair to straw (even with "gentle" shampoos) and fading the color much too quickly. I first read about this product 3 years ago and it was a revelation. I've been using it ever since! A small amount of this "milk" (which smells like fresh bananas) used daily instead of shampoo lifts the oil from the scalp, but leaves hair soft and shiny. Yes, it's pricier than drugstore brands but one bottle lasts for 2-3 months, and since it won't fade your color, you can go longer between visits to the colorist! Just a tablespoon or less massaged into the scalp and rinsed out does the trick. (If your hair is less oily, you may not need to use every day.) No need for conditioner afterward either.
